Here’s something you can’t buy at the Apple Store: the pricey Palo Alto condo right next door to Apple CEO Tim Cook.
Just listed for $2,849,000, the 4 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 2,065 condo is directly adjacent to the modest abode Tim Cook has lived in since 2010.
A true testament to how small the world of Silicon Valley is, this for-sale condo is owned by Bill Maris, a venture capitalist and managing partner at Google Ventures, Apple’s largest competitor. Maris founded Google Ventures in 2009, and has gone on to make incredibly successful investments in hot tech companies like Nest, Uber and 23andMe.
Property records show that Maris paid $1.98 million for the home in late 2010, which is about the time Cook purchased the unit next door. According to Gawker, the two tech titans coexisted for two years, until 2012, when Maris reportedly moved closer to Google’s Mountain View campus, but maintained this home as a rental.
Located at the end of a private driveway, the Cook-adjacent property is super private, but only steps away from restaurants and shops in bustling downtown Palo Alto. The great room is perfect for entertaining and casual living, and the first floor bedroom could also be used as a den or exercise room. Upstairs, the gorgeous master bedroom suite has large closet.
Cook has deviated from the lifestyle that many of his fellow tech leaders lead. Cook lives relatively modestly, while folks like Elon Musk, Larry Ellison, Mark Zuckerberg and Marissa Mayer all own multiple high-priced properties.
