When 19-year-olds Mark Zuckerberg and Dustin Moskovitz, along with 24-year-old Sean Parker, were kicked out of their first Silicon Valley rental in the summer of 2004, they urgently needed to find a new home — and a new home base for their burgeoning company.
The Facebook co-founders were forced to move out of their previous Palo Alto spot following an incident involving a zip-line tied around a chimney, leading down to the pool — probably awesome; probably not authorized in their lease agreement.
With nowhere else to spend their frenzied nights launching what would become one of the most successful tech platforms in history, they turned to Judy Fusco, a landlord who was looking to rent her newly refurbished six-bedroom, five-bathroom home in nearby Los Altos to a responsible tenant.
Fusco’s home — along with the guys’ short-lived Palo Alto party pad — would go on to be the background of tech world lore, immortalized in films such as “The Social Network” and alluded to in TV shows including “Silicon Valley.”
Within Fusco’s home, the scrappy startup launched into a now multi billion-dollar global company. Now, the home is up for rent at $10,000 a month, The Post has learned. Amenities include solar electricity, hardwood floors — and a slice of Silicon Valley history.
