Eight bedrooms, nine bathrooms and 36,000 square meters: the new luxury villa from Amazon boss Jeff Bezos (56) has it all. The richest man in the world bought an incredible $165 million in wealth – the equivalent of 161 million francs.
He can afford it: As the platform “The Verge” writes, it accounts for one-eighth of one percent of Bezos’s net worth of about $129 billion. The villa is located in Beverly Hills, California, and is therefore close to Hollywood, which is home to movie stars and other celebrities.
Bezos broke the record
As the “Wall Street Journal” reports, the Amazon CEO has bought his new home from media entrepreneur David Geffen. It nabbed villas in the Los Angeles area in 1990 for “only” 46.5 million francs, as the newspaper reported.
Bezos has paid for the property now that with luck, he broke a new record for housing prices paid in the Los Angeles area. The previous record was set in late 2019 when media manager Lachlan Murdoch paid nearly $146 million for a Bel Air estate to be used as Clampett’s residence on the television show The Beverly Hillbillies.
Golf course, swimming pool and own service garage
The property was originally designed in the 1930s for film legend Jack Warner, the former chairman of Warner Bros. It took a whole ten years to build at that time. As the magazine “Architecture + Design” writes, the stately home features spacious terraces, guest houses, greenhouses, a nursery, a tennis and golf course, a swimming pool, and its own service garage.
The best part is that the villa also has a floor that was once owned by Napoleon. As the Wall Street Journal reports, the property has a special reputation, according to longtime real estate agent Jeff Hyland: “No royal house, before or since, surpasses the size, splendor or sheer glamor of the Jack Warner property.” Increased.”
As the newspaper writes, Bezos has already paid about CHF 88 million for a vacant place in Los Angeles. It was originally owned by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, who died in 2018. Earlier this year, Jeff Bezos also bought three New York apartments for about 78 million Swiss francs. (DZC)
