Jeff Bezos bought a record-high house in Beverly Hills: why the mansion is remarkable
Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos set a new record for buying the most expensive housing in the Los Angeles area (California), reports Fox Business.
He bought from a filmmaker David Geffen a luxury Beverly Hills mansion for $ 165 million.
The selling price broke last year’s previous record of $ 150 million in Los Angeles County, recorded during the sale of Chartwell estates in Bel Air.
Bezos's new home features a tennis court, pool and golf course.
The 9-acre (3,6 ha) estate, surrounded by tall hedges and gates, was built in the 1920s for Jack Warner, founder and former president of Warner Bros. The Hollywood tycoon eventually expanded the estate by adding several neighboring plots. They say that it hosted many star parties from the 1930s to the 1960s.
At that time, the total area of the estate was 13 square feet (600 square meters). There were also two additional guest houses.
Geffen paid $ 47,5 million to buy this property in 1990.
Bezos and his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez looked at several more homes in the Los Angeles area prior to the purchase, worth more than $ 100 million.
This is not Bezos' first home in Beverly Hills. He and his ex-wife Mackenzie Bezos had previously bought a mansion of 11 square meters. ft (891 sq. m.) for $ 1 million, and then a house located next door for $ 105 million.
