Elon Musk has sold his four-bedroom, three-bath home that overlooks the city of Los Angeles, property records show.

Variety first reported that the home was sold in late August for the equivalent of R59 million - below the original asking price of R68 million. Business Insider has also confirmed that sale, based on property records for the home.

Despite the price chop, the Tesla and SpaceX CEO still stands to make a roughly R6 million profit on the property Musk bought in 2013 with now ex-wife Talulah Riley.

Take a look inside the open-layout home, with massive windows and a spacious backyard:

The home is located in Brentwood, about 15 miles Northwest of Downtown Los Angeles.


It's on an odd-shaped triangle lot, but makes full use of the compact space.


Large privacy hedges help the home stay secluded despite how close it is to the street.


Once inside, huge floor-to-ceiling windows let in natural light to the open living space.


The sleek "cook's kitchen" opens right into the living room, and has plenty of counter space for entertaining.


The second-floor master bedroom is just as sun-drenched as the rest of the house, with a massive walk-in closet.


Nestled in the corner of the boomerang-shaped house is a backyard that is divided only by even more large windows.


The saltwater pool, hot tub, and patio areas are "ideal for relaxing," the real estate agency says.
