Apple CEO Tim Cook buys himself some nice new digs

Apple CEO Tim Cook is movin’ on up. According to Dirt, he’s bought a “lavish estate” in La Quinta’s [California] Madison Club for a cool US$9.1 million, reports Dirt.

The article says Cook’s new digs sit on an 0.81-acre lot. The 9,956 square foot estate has two kitchenss, an executive office, a wet bar with custom billiard table, five bedrooms and six bathrooms, according to Dirt. And the article said that our favorite CEO got a great deal.

Dirt says the property had been listed at $11.5 million; with desert home values still skyrocketing, the .8-acre spread is likely worth somewhere near $12 million today. 

Here’s how Cook’s new home is described: The sprawling home is vaguely Germanic in all its hard-edged and austere glory. Spec-built by a developer and completed in late 2018, place is essentially color-free throughout, with only a few shades of brown and beige to balance the whites and grays that otherwise fill the interiors. Still, there’s plenty of wall space for a colorful modern art collection, and the dazzling sunset views are certainly brilliant. All of the home’s five bedrooms have their own ensuite full bathrooms, and there are additionally two powder rooms on the premises.

Developed by Discovery Land Company, guard-gated Madison Club has become primarily known for expensive homes. Other Madison Club homeowners include Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli, Cindy Crawford, Kourtney Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Nike founder Phil Knight and Scooter Braun.
