Elon Musk's San Fransisco Villa
A $37 million "little piece of heaven
Elon Musk, the multi-entrepreneur engineer, decided to give away most of his property last year to finance his Space X projects. The last property of the billionaire still on the market: a mansion of about 1,500 m2 nestled on a 19-acre site in Hillsborough, California. This charming mansion has 9 bedrooms and bathrooms overlooking hiking trails and canyons.
The executive who would now live in a house of 37m2 only, asks for this little piece of paradise, the gracious sum of 37.5 million dollars. It should be noted that the total value of his real estate stock amounted until now to 100 million dollars. A radical change in lifestyle.

As soon as night falls, the streets are intentionally plunged into darkness so as not to attract the attention of the curious.
All the occupants are looking for calm, security and anonymity. This is what the real estate agency of the place applies on a daily basis by refusing to talk to the press.
Here, everything is guarded and under video surveillance. Impossible to enter if you are not a multimillionaire!

The 68 villas of Leonardo Di Caprio
A future 100% eco-responsible island
True ecological activist, the American actor Leonardo Di Caprio bought in 2005, a private island in Belize with the aim of building his own Eco-Lodge.
The project, which is a little slow to come to fruition, plans for 68 luxury villas above the lagoon and 48 on land. Leonardo Di Caprio wants to revive the ecosystem of the island of Blackadore Caye ruined by overfishing and exploitation of its mangrove wood.

The villas will have all the dream features expected of a prestigious home, including an infinity pool. They will be built with recycled materials and solar panels and the wastewater will be treated while the mangrove will be reforested.
In keeping with the eco-responsible luxury approach, future residents will be able to take environmental awareness courses. The purchase price of one of these residences will vary between 5 and 15 million euros.
The Benkemouns' villa in Arles
A true architectural manifesto
In a completely different register than the previous ones, it was in the early 1970s that Mr. and Mrs. Benkemoun called upon the architect Emile Sala to build a house near Arles, inspired by Le Corbusier.
A few decades later, the Benkemoun daughter has made it primarily an exhibition space for artists, but also a place for seminars, shootings or even a vacation spot with hotel service on request.
It has 5 rooms including 4 suites, a large design lounge, a dining room and a large kitchen. Outside, there is a 100m2 terrace and 1 hectare of land with a pool and pool house.
