Jeff Bezos took home : Founder Amazon’s new property spans more than 3 hectares, and the house itself is rather a palace, writes Business Insider , citing The Wall Street Journal. Built by Jack Warner, the founder of Warner Bros., in 1930 for his family, the stately home was bought by Geffen in 1990 for $ 47.5 million. In addition to the main building, there are two guest houses on the huge property (one of them was Marilyn Monroe once), a swimming pool, a tennis court, a golf course and a cinema. The sale price was more than $ 165 million, as Bezos paid, but CEO Amazon and David Geffen agreed to hit the bar straight, skipping the agencies and thus lowering the owner’s fee.
In parallel with the acquisition of this most expensive California property ever sold, Bezos also invested $ 90 million in land in LA that belonged to Microsoft founder Paul Allen, who died in 2018. Jeff Bezos and his girlfriend, Lauren Sanchez, have been looking for a home in Beverly Hills for a year.
According to real estate sources in the area, the couple would have visited two very expensive properties in the area, Chartwell Estate and Casa Encantada – the latter asking for over $ 200 million.
