Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has a new spot to hang out this summer.
According to a Wall Street Journal report on Thursday, the 34-year-old billionaire recently purchased two adjacent properties on Lake Tahoe, a popular vacation destination for Bay Area residents.
To keep the deals out of the public eye, Zuckerberg purchased the homes — which totaled around $59 million — through a limited-liability company and high-end wealth manager, according to The Journal.
The deals also reportedly involved nondisclosure agreements, including one that required listing photos of the homes be taken off the internet. Business Insider, however, was able to uncover a promotional video for one of the properties that remains online today.
The home — dubbed "The Carousel Estate" — is located on Lake Tahoe’s west shore and was purchased by Zuckerberg for $22 million last December.
