While most billionaires flaunt their multi-million dollar mansions across the globe, Tesla and X/Twitter boss Elon Musk seems to prefer modest accommodations. He had once famously claimed to ‘Own no house.’ Walter Isaacson, who is publishing a biography of the billionaire, recently shared a glimpse of Elon Musk’s two bedroom Boca Chica home in Texas. Musk moved into this spartan home after deciding to sell five of his lavish residences in 2020. Musk had tweeted how his (then) girlfriend, Grimes, was mad at him for selling his physical possessions except Gene Wilder’s old house. He also remarked that possessions weigh you down; hence, ‘Don’t need cash.’ Probably why he has been obsessed with crypto during the following couple years.

The picture shared by the Musk biographer shows a portion of the living room, along with the kitchen. Elon’s jacket hangs on one of the four chairs by one of the wooden tables. On the other table lie a katana, a rocket sculpture, and a TV remote. A picture is hung behind the refrigerator. A sci-fi poster adorns the adjacent wall. The house cost Musk about $50,000-$69,000 and is rented from his own company, SpaceX.
In 2020, Musk decided to sell his five grand houses and to have as his primary residence this spartan two-bedroom house in Boca Chica, TX, where we would meet and he would sit at this wood table and make phone calls.

Only house I own is the events house in the Bay Area. If I sold it, the house would see less use, unless bought by a big family, which might happen some day.
