Jeff Bezos is constantly looking for new trophy properties to add to his tremendous portfolio of real estate when he’s not blasting himself into space. The house has eight bedrooms and nine bathrooms with over 13000 square feet of space. Check out the Jeff Bezos house here. The worth of the Amazon founder’s real estate assets reportedly increased to an astounding $578 million, if not more, earlier this year after Bezos reportedly paid a staggering $78 million for a 14-acre property in Hawaii in a murky deal (more on that later). The millionaire has acquired a number of properties in Washington, D.C., his home state, as well as multiple New York City apartments, several opulent homes in California, a ranch in Texas, and a number of Washington, D.C. properties. The entrepreneur currently owns the following list of residences in the United States.
Bezos paid down $10 million for the house that has served as his principal residence for the past few decades, a number of years after he launched Amazon. It consists of two residences in Seattle’s upscale Medina area that are 20,600 square feet and 8,300 square feet in size, respectively (Bill Gates also owns a home there). The native of Albuquerque spent $28 million on the property’s renovation in 2010. Bezos reportedly purchased the property next door, a 24,000 square foot home with an extra five acres, in the same year. At the time, the Tudor-style house had a $53 million price tag, although it is unknown how much the millionaire ultimately paid. This expansive property is still owned by Bezos.
The year after, Bezos reportedly paid Sony Music CEO Tommy Mottola $7.65 million for three apartments in Manhattan’s Lincoln Square neighborhood’s The Century building. It was thought that Bezos and his then-wife MacKenzie, as well as his parents Miguel and Jacklyn Gise Bezos, used it as a pied-à-terre at the time. It was revealed that he spent $5.3 million for a second nearby 1,725 square foot unit in 2012, more than ten years later.
With the acquisition of Corn Ranch, a piece of land in Texas immediately to the north of Van Horn, Bezos expanded his holdings. Bezos purchased the expansive 30,000-acre estate from lawyer Ronald Stasny, who is said to have invested millions in refurbishing the grey stucco, one-story main house that was first constructed in the 1920s. It is unknown how much Bezos paid for the property. Stasny upgraded the tile flooring, placed a spa in the bathroom, and restored the porches, he told The Wall Street Journal. The headquarters of Blue Origin, the aerospace business that Bezos started in 2000, are currently located at Corn Ranch.
The software tycoon then turned his attention west, paying $24.45 million for a Spanish-style property in Beverly Hills. Seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms are present in the 11,891-square-foot property, which also has a separate guesthouse. It is also believed to have a variety of exterior features, such as a greenhouse, a lit tennis court, a swimming pool, fountains, and a six-car garage. Bezos continues to own and has made improvements to this property.
Late in 2016, Bezos made a significant shift to Washington, D.C., purchasing for $23 million two enormous houses with a combined floor area of 27,000 square feet. The Textile Museum was formerly housed in one of the enormous residences, which was one of the biggest houses in all of Washington, D.C., when it was built in 1914. Bezos purchased the property with the intention of combining the two adjacent buildings into one single family home so that the Bezos family could use it while visiting the city, according to The Washington Post, which Bezos owns. It is situated in the same area as the Obamas, Ivanka Trump, and Jared Kushner, which is known as Kalorama. According to rumours in 2018, Bezos intended to renovate the property for $12 million, adding a garden area to one of the two buildings.
The next year, Bezos added to his Beverly Hills estate by investing $12.9 million in the house just next to the Spanish-style mansion he had acquired in 2007. There are little specifics on the home, but according to the Los Angeles Times, it is 4,586 square feet in size and has four bedrooms and six complete bathrooms. The property has a charming swimming pool that is shaded by old trees, as well as a gated semi-circular drive.
Early in 2019, the founder of Amazon splashed out on three Manhattan residences with views of Madison Square Park, shelling out a combined $80 million. The Wall Street Journal stated at the time that Bezos’ extravagant acquisition would rank among the year’s most costly real estate deals in New York City. (In the end, Bezos’ astonishing acquisition was beaten out by a $240 million Manhattan apartment.) The purchase comprised a four-bedroom home with huge windows on three of its four sides that was adjacent to a three-floor, 10,000 square foot penthouse with a big ballroom, high-end finishing, and a three-bedroom apartment below it.
The founder of Blue Origin began the year by spending a somewhat less expensive $5 million for a second Kalorama property in Washington, D.C. The Washingtonian reports that the estate is directly across the street from his former home, which served as a textile museum. This raises the possibility that the property was bought purely for privacy purposes because it can be seen from Bezos’s enormous mansion.
He purchased David Geffen’s landmark Beverly Hills property in February for a record-breaking $165 million. The enormous 10-acre estate has two guest houses, a nursery and three hothouses, a tennis court, a swimming pool, wide terraces, and a nine-hole golf course in addition to the main house, which is 13,600 square feet and built in the Georgian style. Even its own service garage and gas pumps are available at the huge motor court. The main house’s old wood flooring is a significant feature. It was transported from abroad and is thought to be the exact floor that Napoleon stood on when he proposed to Empress Joséphine.
Bezos spent $16 million on a three-bedroom apartment in the upscale Madison Square Park apartment building in April, next to the two lower-level units from the initial purchase, where he had already purchased three properties the summer before. Building permits were submitted in fall 2019, so it’s probable the fourth buy was intended to be an addition to the already-grand Manhattan mega-mansion, even though Bezos’s plans for integrating all four properties weren’t evident at the time.
Bezos added to his Beverly Hills holdings in July when he paid $10 million for the property next to Geffen’s residence, a far more modest home but is nevertheless opulent by most people’s standards. The two-story classic home is 4,615 square feet in size and has three bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. The seller has significantly updated the interior. An outside brick courtyard, vegetable and rose gardens, crown moulding, six brick fireplaces, French doors, and dark hardwood floors all lend the home a certain sense of historic elegance. Both of these properties are still his.
Early in the spring, Bezos made a new investment in his Manhattan mega-mansion by purchasing a $23 million apartment in the same historic building where he had previously spent $96 million on four different properties. His property’s square footage increased by this amount to more than 20,000 square feet.
His most recent acquisition is a compound on La Perouse Bay for $78 million, which is the most money ever paid for a residence on Maui. But rather than buying the land outright, Bezos made an unorthodox decision and bought out the holding company that does. Little is known about the property because it was never publicly listed, although it has a massive 14 acres and several buildings, including a 4,500 square foot main house and a 1,700 square foot guest house, both of which were constructed in the Hawaiian plantation style. The ideal location for entertaining and enjoying the scenery is right outside the main house on a deck and outdoor kitchen with wood siding. A 700 square foot pool also has a view of the house’s personal white sand beach. Now that Bezos is stepping down as CEO of Amazon, it’s not a horrible spot for him and his partner Lauren Sanchez to spend their time.
