The hunt is on for Elon Musk‘s new home. The Tesla CEO is reportedly on a hush-hush to buy a private mega-mansion somewhere in Austin, according to a new report by the Wall Street Journal. This is quite different from the public persona Musk has crafted in recent months, during which he claimed to sell off most of his possessions to live in a $50,000 Boca Chica rental house.
Though he reportedly has registered to vote in Cameron County, near Boca Chica and the Space X headquarters, it’s always been assumed that Musk would eventually land in Austin. Earlier this year, his company Tesla moved its headquarters from Silicon Valley to East Austin. It’s possible that he’s been here even longer considering Musk and his then-partner Grimes also both tweeted about being in Austin and without power during February’s deadly winter storm.
