Remote work? No problem for Mark Zuckerberg.

The 37-year-old Facebook founder plans to work remotely for up to half of 2022, the Wall Street Journal reported last week — and his $320 million real estate portfolio is more than able to accommodate his work-from-home lifestyle.

The centibillionaire owns about 1,400 acres and 10 houses in Palo Alto, San Francisco, Lake Tahoe and Hawaii. He has a history of not getting along with his neighbors, from construction noise complaints in San Francisco to a petition against “colonization” due to his growing Hawaii real estate portfolio.

The homes are hardly a dent in his estimated $120 billion net worth, which places him as the fifth richest person in the world, according to Forbes.

He has two children with his wife Priscilla Chan, 5-year-old Maxima and 3-year-old August. They said having children inspired them to pledge to give 99% of their Facebook shares away, though many have criticized billionaires for exacerbating inequality

A family spokesperson confirmed the residences to The Post, and pointed out “Mark and Priscilla’s work with the community in Kauai.”

Zuckerberg spent $10 million on this now-7,368-square-foot house in November 2012, plus an additional $1.8 million in renovations, according to San Francisco property and permit records.

Photos of the stucco and brick home with a slate roof are scarce, but property records paint a portrait of the home: on the first floor, an office, media room, half-bathroom, a laundry room and mudroom, a wine room and a wet bar. 

It is unknown how many bedrooms and bathrooms the house has, but it has 23 total rooms on four floors on a 0.22-acre lot, according to San Francisco property records. 

The $1.8 million renovation of the 1928 property included remodeling the kitchen and bathrooms, replacing and repairing the stucco and brick exterior, making it fire and earthquake safe, installing air conditioning, moving and renovating windows and replacing the slate roof, according to permit records.

He added to the first, second and third floors, and added the fourth floor as a habitable level with a bathroom and a glass roof deck, according to property records.

The renovations solicited six complaints from neighbors, including noise, dust, parking, littering, construction debris and alleged permit violation complaints, which were dismissed or mediated by inspectors and city staff, according to records

He used the other four homes as guest houses and recreational facilities, according to an Architectural Review Board meeting.

In 2016, Zuckerberg proposed to demolish the four residences and replace them with 20% smaller houses to expand outdoor space for their primary property.

In 2016, he proposed to demolish the four residences and replace them with 20% smaller houses to expand outdoor space for their primary property. But the Palo Alto Architectural Review Board denied his request in part because the houses were not “credible” single-family homes.

“What I’m finding here when I look through these plans is that none of these are really residential in my book. A residence is something where a family lives. A person resides in that residence. And these are not residences. These are part of a larger compound,” said Architectural Review Board member Peter Baltay at the meeting.

News of neighbors’ complaints in San Francisco also made his new neighbors wary, emails show, though builders said they minimized neighborhood impact in their plans, they outlined in the review board meeting.

Zuckerberg seems to love Hawaii. In fact, he can’t stop buying up land — 1,400 acres of it.

In 2014, he spent $116 million on 707 acres including most of Pila’a beach and Kahu’aina Plantation, which, according to local newspaper the Garden Island,” includes a 6,100-square-foot house with a 16-car garage and offices and security headquarters, part of Zuckerberg’s $23 million security team.

Zuckerberg first underwent local scrutiny for putting up walls and blocking beach access after this purchase, the Garden Island reported.

In 2017, Zuckerberg underwent national scrutiny when he filed quiet-title lawsuits to buy pockets of land within his estate. Called kuleana parcels, these landlocked patches of land were granted to native Hawaiian tenant farmers in 1850 and handed down through generations, local reports explained.

Zuckerberg withdrew the lawsuits after public backlash, but he still spent $45.3 million on 89 acres spanning at least 12 kuleana parcels, according to local reports, including 79.8 acres from Gary Stewart for $33.3 million, according to Pacific Business News.

In March, the couple spent $53 million to add 600 more acres to their portfolio. Zuckerberg has recently been spotted hitting the waves, hurling spears and donning copious amounts of sunscreen on the islands, in addition to their contributions to the Chan Zuckerberg Kaua‘i Community Fund of Hawai‘i Community Foundation.

Early homes

Harvard, LA rentals and New York suburbs

Zuckerberg was born and raised in Dobbs Ferry, NY by a dentist and a psychiatrist. He has three sisters, according to New York Magazine.

After leaving his Harvard dorm room to start Facebook, the man who inspired the 2010 film “The Social Network” rented a few places in Silicon Valley — and even tried to pay in Facebook stock, a former landlord (who opted to accept cash from the young entrepreneur) told The Post.

Zuckerberg's old landlord gave the New York Post an exclusive interview about what it was like to rent to the young Zuckerberg.
