The deal actually closed in 2018, but confirmation that Cook was the rumored Silicon Valley buyer of the home was only recently confirmed, according to Dirt.

Cook's five-bedroom mansion is located in the Madison Club, an exclusive Southern California rental community known for its high-profile, celebrity residents. The Madison Club is located in Riverside County in Southern California.

Public records indicate that Cook may have paid $9.1 for the million, while Multiple Listing Network data suggests he paid $10.1 million. Both numbers come under the property's listing price of $11.5 million.

Developed by the Discovery Land Company, the Madison Club is known for expensive desert homes and a golf course designed by Tom Fazio. Other Madison Club homeowners include Kourtney Kardashian, Cindy Crawford, Kris Jenner, Nike founder Phil Knight, and Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli.

Cook's new estate spans about 10,000 square feet. It features five bedrooms and six bathrooms, and is situated on a 0.81-acre lot.

The Apple chief executive has spent time at the Madison Club in the past. Back in March 2020, Cook and Apple Services chief Eddy Cue attended a birthday party for Lucian Grainge, Universal Music CEO and Madison Club homeowner. Grainge later tested positive for coronavirus, exposing Cook and Cue.

    Is there a Denny’s next door?   There’s always a Denny’s next to a La Quinta.

    Nice digs. Won't be long until 10 million is the average home price in all of California.

    Actually a very modest (presumably vacation) home for a guy in Cook’s position.  It is less than 1% of his net worth and for him the equivalent of a person with a 213k net worth (median for 55-64 years old) buying a house for $1,491.

    For a house in CA $10M is not a lot of money especially for a guy like Tim. It actually sounds like a modestly priced house for such a ceo.

    Nice.  I made some food for the homeless people outside my door this morning and gave them coffee too.  I make less then 30 grand a year. I’m completely happy and content.

    Tim deserves a mansion if he wants and needs it.  All that space would be awesome to wake up too.

    A lot of people in Palo Alto, CA are living in $3 million 'mansions'.

    Where does the water come from? The aquifer is being rapidly depleted. Not sustainable.

    Do you have an editor? In that case, why doesn't she/he do her/his work?

    Hater. Cook can afford to truck it in from wherever he wants. A ten thousand gallon tanker should last a week or so unless he needs to fill the pool. Only the little people have to worry about where their water will come from.

    I've stayed at La Quinta.  Very nice area if you have the money.

    It looks more reasonable than those modern skinny / Billionaire's Raw skyscrapers in Manhattan.

    It's recycled greywater and kitchen staff sweat from the Denny's next door.

    It’s sustainable for the elites. That’s how it works.

    Agreed, and definitely not a “mansion”. 

    California real estate is just crazy expensive.

    Maybe playing a little fast and loose with the descriptives, but a 10,000 square foot residence could fairly be called a “mansion”. I have 4 BR and 3 BA in 3,000 sq ft and that is plenty big to me. His is over 3x the size (albeit 2x the bathrooms too).

    For a CEO touting environmental responsibility and with such potential design and financial resources available this raises so many questions...
    I might have expected (hoped for) a choice more along the lines of Naturhus Sweden from Apple TV+ Home adapted for California climate...?

    For consideration in comparison Steve Jobs had sought to custom build a 4,910sf home for his entire family: gizmodo.com/exclusive-the-plans-for-steve-jobs-new-house-5649909

    "Jobs intends to populate the 6 acres with an assortment of indigenous flora; a simple three-car garage; a modest 5 bedroom home with plenty of windows and decks; a network of lighted stone walkways; and even a private vegetable garden. Everything is neat, tight, pragmatic, and in its place"

    "
    Steve Jobs has gone and designed the iPhone of houses"

    ... and this was a decade ago when the symptoms of climate change were so widely contested by vested interests ...

    How should leadership be defined...?

    I think you are overthinking it.
