Winklevoss Twins Buy $18 Million Home

HOLLYWOOD HILLS—The 31-year-old Winklevoss twins, known for their lawsuit against Mark Zuckerberg and Facebook, bought an $18 million home in Hollywood Hills.

Tyler Winklevoss will remain in the 8,000 square foot home as they launch the West Wing of their venture capital company, Winklevoss Capital. Cameron will remain mainly in New York City, where they have signed a five-year lease for their company's office. 

The two-story modern home with a jetliner view of Los Angeles was recently constructed as the house that had been on the lot before was bulldozed and modified. It is reported that the Winklevoss twins are in Los Angeles because they believe it is currently a great place for techies instead of Silicon Valley, where many firms are located.

The two brothers are Harvard graduates and were rowers in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. They spent years in litigation with Facebook as they claimed Zuckerberg stole their idea for Facebook and owed them money in compensation. Eventually, the Winklevoss twins took a $65 million settlement and dropped the case.

The twins were also depicted in the 2010 movie, "The Social Network," a movie loosely based off the creation of the popular social media site, Facebook.
