He first listed the beach house for $11 million in early 2017. In August, he reduced the price by more than $3 million to $7.9 million.

Warren Buffett’s Laguna Beach, California, home has finally sold for about $7.5 million, according to representatives of Villa Real Estate. Buffett first listed the property for sale in early 2017.

In August, Buffett cut the $11 million asking price by more than $3 million, reported the Orange County Register.

The Berkshire Hathaway CEO has owned the home since 1971, when he purchased it for $150,000. That’s about $934,000 in today’s dollars. He’s since renovated the place, which has six bedrooms and more than 3,500 square feet of living space.

The billionaire investor had primarily used it as a beach retreat for his family, but they reportedly hadn’t used it much since his first wife, Susan, died in 2004.

Let’s take a tour of Buffett’s beach-town home.
