Word on the Hawaiian real estate street (via Pacific Business News and the Curbed kids) is that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is the likely buyer who will pay around $66 million for the so-called called Kahuaina Plantation, an all but unspoiled 357-acre beachfront spread with approx. 2,500 feet of white sand beach on Kauai’s scenic North Shore. That sounds like an awful lot of money unless, like Mister Zuck, you’ve got a sky-high net worth of more than $33 billion and then $66 million for a large slice of tropical paradise is a piece of real estate cake..
So the scuttlebutt goes, Mister and Missus Zuckerberg snatched up a few multi-million dollar condos last year at the ONE Ala Moana complex in downtown Honolulu but, honestly butter beans, we don’t know a thing about said alleged purchases. He does, however, owns at least five adjoining properties near the Facebook campus in Palo Alto as well as a pie-a-terre in San Francisco’s Liberty Heights ‘hood that he bought in 2012 and is currently undergoing a massive, neighbor-inconveniencing renovation.
