Behind Mark Zuckerberg’s Secret $59 Million Lake Tahoe Compound Deal
Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg loves his privacy, that’s why he spent $59 million on two adjacent estates tucked away in Lake Tahoe and is reportedly eyeing a third. To keep the deals under wraps, he purchased the properties through a limited-liability company and a high-end wealth manager. The real estate agents also had to sign a non-disclosure agreement and removed the listings from their websites.
Zuckerberg purchased the Carousel Estate for $22 million in December of 2018. The eight-bedroom estate has nine and a half bathrooms, a rare marina-style pier for large yachts, 225 feet of lake frontage, and spans over three acres of land.
Zuckerburg later scooped up the 37 million dollar Brushwood Estate in January of 2019. This Estate is slightly larger than the Carousel Estate and hosts an enormous 5,322 square foot home with six bedrooms that sits on six acres of land.
Together the Lake Tahoe properties expand across 600 feet of private waterfront and join Zuckerburg’s extensive real-estate portfolio, which includes homes in California, San Francisco, Palo Alto, Hawaii, and Kauai.
