Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg Buys A Home In Palo Alto

Apparently, Facebook’s Chief Executive Officer is settling down: he’s purchased a $7 million home in Palo Alto.

He bought a home that the Silicon Valley Mercury News calls a 10-minute drive away from the company’s soon-to-be headquarters in Menlo Park.

The newspaper cited “sources close to Facebook” as confirming the move, but no one is saying which specific property Zuckerberg has acquired.

The house has more than 5,000 square feet, a saltwater pool, a music alcove, five bedrooms and bathrooms, a glassed-in sunroom and spacious porch. A wall and trees shield the property from the street, affording more privacy than Zuckerberg’s current address.

Readers, what do you make of the news that Zuckerberg bought a home?
