Remote work? No problem for Mark Zuckerberg.
The 37-year-old Facebook founder plans to work remotely for up to half of 2022, the Wall Street Journal reported last week — and his $320 million real estate portfolio is more than able to accommodate his work-from-home lifestyle.
The centibillionaire owns about 1,400 acres and 10 houses in Palo Alto, San Francisco, Lake Tahoe and Hawaii. He has a history of not getting along with his neighbors, from construction noise complaints in San Francisco to a petition against “colonization” due to his growing Hawaii real estate portfolio.
The homes are hardly a dent in his estimated $120 billion net worth, which places him as the fifth richest person in the world, according to Forbes.
He has two children with his wife Priscilla Chan, 5-year-old Maxima and 3-year-old August. They said having children inspired them to pledge to give 99% of their Facebook shares away, though many have criticized billionaires for exacerbating inequality.
A family spokesperson confirmed the residences to The Post, and pointed out “Mark and Priscilla’s work with the community in Kauai.”
A noisy townhouse overhaul
Dolores Heights, San Francisco | $11.83 million
Zuckerberg spent $10 million on this now-7,368-square-foot house in November 2012, plus an additional $1.8 million in renovations, according to San Francisco property and permit records.
Photos of the stucco and brick home with a slate roof are scarce, but property records paint a portrait of the home: on the first floor, an office, media room, half-bathroom, a laundry room and mudroom, a wine room and a wet bar.
It is unknown how many bedrooms and bathrooms the house has, but it has 23 total rooms on four floors on a 0.22-acre lot, according to San Francisco property records.
The $1.8 million renovation of the 1928 property included remodeling the kitchen and bathrooms, replacing and repairing the stucco and brick exterior, making it fire and earthquake safe, installing air conditioning, moving and renovating windows and replacing the slate roof, according to permit records.
He added to the first, second and third floors, and added the fourth floor as a habitable level with a bathroom and a glass roof deck, according to property records.
The renovations solicited six complaints from neighbors, including noise, dust, parking, littering, construction debris and alleged permit violation complaints, which were dismissed or mediated by inspectors and city staff, according to records.
