Mark Zuckerberg is tearing down the four homes that surround his $7 million Silicon Valley mansion and building what looks like a high-security stealth compound.
Papers submitted to the planning department in Palo Alto, Calif., show that the four neighboring houses — scooped up by the Facebook boss in a string of deals totaling nearly $44 million — will be razed and replaced by houses that are 20 percent smaller and mostly single-story.
Indeed, one home looks like a possible security bunker, with “white brick walls, dark steel doors and windows, dark grey siding and louvers where they occur above the roof line, and a dark gray standing seam metal roof,” according to the plans.
The other three will be built with “a simple palette of painted wood shingle siding, natural cedar shake roofing, painted windows and french doors, and stained wood doors where they are solid.”
