WE ALL HAVE TO START FROM SOMEWHERE and that includes Facebook and its creators.

The Silicon Valley mansion that Mark Zuckerberg and his former friends rented while creating the famous website is now on the market.

The stunning home is selling for nearly $5.3million (£4.3million).

Zuckerberg and other Facebook founders rented the big house back in 2004.

At the time, they were paying $5,500 a month for the California property.

Zuckerberg, 37, Dustin Moskovitz, 37, and Sean Parker, 42, all stayed inside.

Fans of the 2010 film The Social Network may recall some of the dramatized events between the trio.

The film includes a reference to a real-life incident involving a zip line, which the contractors attached to the chimney so they could fly over the pool.

Her former block is listed by Live Play Real Estate’s Crystal Souza and Hannah Isaka.

The listing reads: “The famous Facebook home … is located in the prestigious country club district of Los Altos

“This piece of Silicon Valley history is located down a quiet cul-de-sac with a personalized baffle in the expansive backyard and a gazebo perfect for BBQs and get-togethers.”

The home is 2,969 square feet and has six bedrooms and four large bathrooms.

Facebook interns and engineers would have walked into the rooms there when they came to help Zuckerberg.

The property sold for $250,000 in 1998, so the price has risen sharply since then.

That’s where Zuckerberg stayed as Facebook grew from hundreds of thousands of users to millions.
