A Silicon Valley house that Mark Zuckerberg rented in the early days of Facebook is on the market for $5.3 million. Take a look inside.

In 2004, Mark Zuckerberg and two other Facebook co-founders rented a house in Silicon Valley.
The 2,969-square-foot home has six bedrooms and four bathrooms.
The house was consistently filled with engineers, Facebook employees and interns, according to the New York Post.

Zuckerberg, Dustin Moskovitz and Sean Parker rented the house in 2004, Live Play Real Estate broker Crystal Souza told Insider. Zuckerberg was just 19 at the time, and he, Moskovitz, and Parker had just been evicted from their previous home after the landlord found out they had attached a zip line to the chimney to jump into the pool.
Desperate for an apartment, Zuckerberg and the others came across a listing of 1743 Westbrook Avenue that belonged to Judy Fusco, according to the Santa Clara County Public Records. Fusco, now 77, told the New York Post last year that Zuckerberg never entered the house before renting it and simply handed her a check for $10,000 to secure the lease.
The trio moved in in September 2004, but they weren't the only guests: Facebook employees, including engineers and interns, soon filled the six-bedroom home. The interns slept in bunk beds in the conservatory, Fusco told the Post.
The condition of the house in 2004 was far from what it is today. When Zuckerberg and the team resided there, the house had only essential furniture from IKEA and bean bags, according to Facebook: The Inside Story by Steven Levy. Zuckerberg didn't even have a dresser and kept his clothes in a pile.
Fusco and Zuckerberg did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
The home is located in the prestigious Country Club area of ​​Los Altos Hills.

Located 45 minutes from San Francisco, Los Altos Hill is home to some of the world's richest tech tycoons, including Google CEO Sundar Pichai. Los Altos Hills was ranked the fifth richest community in the United States in Bloomberg's 2020 Richest Places Index. The average household income there is estimated to be $405,073.
Based on the Zillow Home Value Index, the median price for a home in Los Altos Hills is $5,596,953, up 18.9% year over year. With a list price of $5,298,000, the retail price for "Casa de Facebook" is just below the new average.
The 2,969-square-foot home has six bedrooms and four bathrooms.

Most of the common areas have sliding glass doors and floor-to-ceiling windows built in to let in natural sunlight, as can be seen in the virtual tour of the home.
Like Zuckerberg's current home in Palo Alto, California, the home at 1743 Westbrook Avenue features hardwood floors.
The living room is fitted with large bay windows opening onto a balcony.

The windows are listed as offering a view of the nearby creek.

Zuckerberg and his team finally moved out of the house and into their first official office in downtown Palo Alto on Emerson Street in 2005.
