Tim Cook purchases $9.1 million La Quinta golf mansion
LA QUINTA — Apple CEO Tim Cook has added his name to the expanded list of celebrities buying multimillion homes in La Quinta, a growing playground for the elite.
The 60-year-old Apple CEO was recently revealed as the buyer of $9.1 million mansion in an ultra-private celebrity-favorite golf resort, Dirt first reported this weekend.
The transaction occurred on March 1, 2019 before the onset of the pandemic. The sale closed weeks before Apple TV+, which has brought popular shows like “Ted Lasso” and “The Morning Show,” was announced on March 25, 2019.
Just a year later, in March 2020, Cook was exposed to the novel coronavirus at neighbor Lucian Grainge’s birthday party at his house in the La Quinta Madison Club, Bloomberg reported at the time.
Uken Report was not able to independently verify that Cook purchased this property. Apple and Madison Club representatives did not respond to Uken Report’s requests for comment. Neither did they respond for comments from the New York Post,
The five-bedroom, five-bathroom, two-powder-room home spans almost 10,000 square feet and boasts a custom billiards table, a swim-up bar, two kitchens and views of the 15th fairway and the Santa Rosa Mountains, according to the listing.
It also has an office, a family lounge, a wet bar, automated floor-to-ceiling glass pocket doors and an $86,100 active solar energy system, according to property records at the Riverside County assessor’s office.
The 0.81-acre lot has a $150,000 infinity pool, a hot tub, a tanning deck, a swim-up bar, a barbecue island, a covered patio and a 1,766-square-foot garage, according to the listing and property records.
His neighbors at the exclusive Madison Club include Lori Loughlin, Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber, Kourtney Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Kanye and Kim Kardashian (it’s unclear who will get this land in the divorce) and, formerly, Sylvester Stallone.
Disgraced sitcom star Lori Loughlin and her husband Mossimo Giannulli, both ex-cons, have purchased a $13 million mansion.
Kourtney Kardashian recently dropped $12 million for a desert oasis in this East Valley community, according to the New York Post.
Located in a gated upscale La Quinta neighborhood, the six-bedroom, eight-bathroom contemporary mansion was newly constructed this year and comes fully furnished, according to The Post.
The La Quinta club offers a Tom Fazio-designed golf course, a members-only clubhouse, a gym and a spa, according to their website. The area was made popular in part by nearby Coachella and Stagecoach festivals, Realtor.com reported.
Glenn Cassell of the Madison Club represented the seller and the buyer. Cassell is not part of the Hideaway Properties Corporation, despite reports to the contrary, Hideaway told The Post.
The 60-year-old Apple executive’s net worth is an estimated $1.4 billion, according to Forbes, and he recently received a $750 million payout from the Cupertino-based company that produces products like the iPhone. He also reportedly owns a modest house in Palo Alto.
