Musk has made a profit on the mansion, which he bought back in 2017 for around $23million (£17.4million).

He tried to sell it on for $37.5million (£28.4million) in June this year but failed to find a buyer and seems to have settled for a lower bid.

The billionaire has faced backlash over the San Francisco mansion after he kept it for a while despite vowing to sell all his homes for the Mars mission.
