Facebook CEO and founder Mark Zuckerberg doesn’t want the neighbors around, so he bought them out.
The billionaire reportedly spent $30million buying the 4 homes next to his Palo Alto, California home.
The co-founder of the world’s biggest social network bought the properties after hearing rumors that a developer wanted to purchase one of them and market it as being near Zuckerberg’s house, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the details aren’t public.
Google co-founder Larry Page made a similar move a few years ago so he could build a massive, 6,000-square-foot mansion. But Zuckerberg’s reason is different. He doesn’t want to live in excess, he just wants a little privacy.
