A member of the Tesla family is making himself right at home ahead of the opening of the electric vehicle maker's newest $1.1 billion Gigafactory in southeast Travis County.

Tesla CFO Zachary Kirkhorn—recently named "master of coin" by CEO Elon Musk—reportedly bought a $3.29 million home on Lake Austin. Bloomberg first reported the news this week.


On a 2.5-acre plot of land with a pool, the home has five bedrooms, five and a half bathrooms in over 5,000 square feet. Business Insider reports Kirkhorn paid less for the home than originally listed on realtor.com.


Kirkhorn has been the Tesla CFO for just over two years and has worked with the company for almost eight years.

From California to Texas, the financial executive follows Musk and other tech industry professionals gravitating to the lone star state and capital city.

Musk officially has planted roots for four of his companies in Austin, where he lives: Tesla, SpaceX, The Boring Company and Neuralink.
