With a net worth of $55.5 billion, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg jumped to fourth place, his highest ranking ever. Larry Ellison, the founder of Oracle, was ranked No. 5 for the first time since 2007. His estimated net worth is $49.3 billion dollars.
Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, CEO of the eponymous company Bloomberg L.P., is ranked No. 6 on the list, with a net worth of $45 billion.
These six multibillionaires have a total fortune of $363.3 billion, the majority of which is still invested in the companies they created. However, real estate accounts for a portion of their fortune. Via his private investment company, Cascade, Mr. Gates owns a $170 million Washington home, numerous horse ranches throughout the United States, and stakes in several luxury hotel chains.
Take a peek at the homes of the world’s six wealthiest people:
- Bill Gates is the richest man in the world, with a net worth of $81 billion. Medina, Washington is where I call home.
Mr. Gates, 60, spends the majority of his time at his 66,000-square-foot mansion in Medina, Washington, dubbed Xanadu 2.0 after the estate of Citizen Kane’s title character. The mansion has a beautiful view of Lake Washington. This building, which is full of high-tech features, took Mr. Gates seven years and $63.2 million to construct. According to public records, he bought the property for $2 million in 1988, but it’s now worth an estimated $170 million.
2. Jeff Bezos ($67 billion in net worth) Medina, Washington is where I call home.
Mr. Bezos, 52, has accumulated a large number of real estate holdings over the years as he builds his e-commerce empire, earning him the No. 26 positions on The Land Report’s list of America’s biggest landowners last year. According to Forbes, he owns a 165,000-acre ranch in West Texas, waterfront home in Washington state, three related apartments in Manhattan’s Century Tower, and a 12,000-square-foot Beverly Hills estate where Tom Cruise lives.
His home in Medina, Washington, is 5.35 acres in size and has about 29,000 square feet of living space. It is near to Amazon’s headquarters. There’s also a caretaker’s cottage and a 4,500-square-foot boathouse on Lake Washington, in addition to the main house.
Warren Buffett is the third richest person in the world, with a net worth of $65.5 billion. Omaha, Nebraska is where I call home.
Despite the fact that Mr. Buffett, 86, is the world’s most successful businessman, he is known for living modestly.
He purchased his house on a corner in Omaha, Nebraska, for $31,500 in 1958. Since then, Mr. Buffett has made his home there. The building, which was designed in 1921, has been expanded many times to become a cozy and luxurious 6,500-square-foot home for the man with a net worth of $65.5 billion.
4. Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg
$55.5 billion in value Palo Alto, California is where I call home.
The world’s youngest billionaire invests the majority of his fortune in colleges, health care, and other philanthropies. His Palo Alto home and a 9.9-million pied-a-terre near Dolores Park in San Francisco are among his real estate holdings.
Mr. Zuckerberg, 32, paid $7 million for his first 5,000-square-foot Craftsman-style home in Palo Alto in 2011. In the years that followed, he paid $43.8 million for four of the houses that surrounded his house in order to maintain his privacy. However, his proposal to demolish and reconstruct those four houses has been put on hold.
5. Larry Ellison, Oracle’s executive director, has sizable real estate holdings. $49.3 billion in value Woodside, California is where I call home. He has purchased entire communities in Malibu and the Lake Tahoe area. According to published accounts, he owns a $70-million Beechwood Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island; a garden villa in Kyoto, Japan; and 98 percent of the property on Lanai, Hawaii’s sixth-largest island, which he bought for $500 million in 2012.
His $110 million estates in Woodside, California, is built in the style of 16th-century Japanese architecture and includes a man-made 2.3-acre lake.
