MARK Zuckerberg has flogged his sprawling San Francisco mansion for $31 million, the city’s highest-priced home sale this year.
The Facebook co-founder and his wife Priscilla Chan bought the property in 2012 for $10 million.
The couple have since drawn the wrath of their neighbors with millions of dollar renovations.
Zuckerberg, 38, and Chan quietly sold their Golden City Block in an off-market deal Good business.
The homebuyer is based in Delaware and the records for the home have been sent to an estate planning attorney, Michael Gordon.
Located in the affluent neighborhood of Dolores Heights, the home was originally listed as a 7,200-square-foot, four-bedroom estate.
According to SFGate, it was later renovated and added to include a laundry room, wine bar, wet bar, and greenhouse, among other upgrades.
The deal marks the biggest home sale in San Fran this year, beating two penthouses that sold last week for a combined $29 million.
Those properties were once owned by the late Secretary of State George Shultz, the Real Deal reported.
The instrument submitted for the house was signed by the vice president for operations of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, according to TRD.
Zuckerberg, CEO of Meta, the parent company of Instagram, WhatsApp and Facebook, is worth an estimated $60 billion.
He is currently the 20th richest person in the world.
In 2014, the 38-year-old angered locals who complained about renovations to his San Francisco home.
The neighbors complained about construction noise and Zuck’s security service, which occupied the local parking lot.
A letter obtained by BuzzFeed at the time claimed that the security team was “permanently” and “illegally” occupying “desired parking spots” in the area with two silver SUVs.
“I think we all tried to be as patient and polite as possible during the very long construction, noise, rubbish, road closure, etc.,” the letter begins.
It continues: “Now that all the circus is over, we’re left with two silver SUVs permanently occupying coveted parking spots.
“Of course, living so close to Dolores Park and the great neighboring areas already poses a challenge when it comes to street parking, so having 2 illegally reserved spaces for Zuck only makes matters worse.”
Zuck’s rep told BuzzFeed the vehicles were legally parked.
“Security team cars will be parked in accordance with local parking laws. The team is making every effort to address the concerns of neighbors and regrets any inconvenience,” the spokesman said.
It is one of many houses owned by the meta boss.
His massive real estate empire includes a $37 million five-home estate in Silicon Valley and a 1,500-acre estate in Hawaii.
His real estate portfolio, which includes 10 homes in Palo Alto, San Francisco and Lake Tahoe, is estimated to be worth $320 million.
