But at the urging of his late wife, Susie, Buffett also bought a beachfront vacation home in Laguna Beach, Calif., in 1971 for $150,000. This year, he put that mansion on the market for $11 million. That's just a drop in his $74.4 billion bucket but would be a nice profit, nonetheless.
Buffett's 3,600-square-foot Emerald Bay house is just steps from the Pacific Ocean, according to listing agent Bill Dolby with Villa Real Estate. It has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and several balconies with epic views (seen below).
