In a tweet on Friday, Musk appeared to attach conditions to the purchase of this property. "Just one stipulation on sale: I own Gene Wilder's old house. It cannot be torn down or lose any its soul," Musk said.
The former Wilder residence is a 2,756 square-foot ranch-style property, with five bedrooms.
Musk and companies connected to him are thought to own at least seven properties, with most located in Los Angeles.
Musk said on Friday the sudden fire-sale of his possessions was not financially motivated. "Don't need the cash. Devoting myself to Mars and Earth. Possession just weigh you down," he tweeted.
Musk also tweeted last week that he felt Tesla's share price was "too high," causing it to drop by 13%.
