Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook)
Palo Alto, California – $7 million
The world-famous Internet entrepreneur and computer programmer, Mark Zuckerberg is one of the co-founders and currently chairman and CEO of Facebook. With a personal wealth estimated at $44.6 billion, as of October 2015, Forbes has ranked him as the 7th richest American. Despite this, he purchased his elegant, albeit understated Palo Alto home (which features five bedrooms and five bathrooms) for a measly $7 million. Zuckerberg and wife Priscilla Chan became the proud parents of daughter Max, on 1 December, 2015 after suffering three miscarriages. To mark the happy occasion, the proud parents announced that they would be giving away 99% of their shares in Facebook to humanitarian causes.
