Inside Mark Zuckerberg’s $59million Lake Tahoe retreat

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s secret $59million Lake Tahoe compound has been revealed.

Zuckerberg, 34, purchased the two adjacent estates near Tahoe City, California a few months ago, using non-disclosure agreements, a limited-liability company called Golden Range and his wealth manager, Iconiq Capital, to keep the transaction private, the Wall Street Journal reported. 

The non-disclosure agreements even required real estate agents such as luxury property brokerage Oliver to remove images of the properties from the internet – showing Zuckerberg’s concern for his own privacy even as his company faces scrutiny over how it protects the privacy of its users. 

The two estates, known as Brushwood Estate and Carousel Estate, were previously put on the market in 2017.

Carousel Estate consists of a compound with a main house and two cottages on 3.5 acres of lakefront land
