Jeff Bezos buys David Geffen’s Beverly Hills estate for record $165M

Report: Jeff Bezos buys L.A. mansion for $165M and land from Paul Allen estate for $90M

Bezos has been searching for a home for the past year, according to Page Six.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has just bought the most expensive home in Los Angeles, The Wall Street Journal reports.

"No studio czar's residence, before or since, has ever surpassed in size, grandeur, or sheer glamour the Jack Warner Estate on Angelo Drive in Benedict Canyon", according a passage from the book "The Legendary Estates of Beverly Hills" quoted by the Journal.

Bezos has maintained his lead as the world's richest man according to Forbes, despite divorcing his wife Mackenzie in a case estimated at KSh 3.8 trillion in January 2020.

To put it in perspective, $165 million is only an eighth of a percent (yes, an eighth of one percent) of Bezos' $131.9 billion net worth.

Indeed, Los Angeles luxury homebuyers have engaged in a game of "can you top this?" the last several months, with the first instance an unidentified purchaser plucking the former Spelling Manor in Beverly Hills fo $120 million.

The purchase of the so-called Warner Estate by the Amazon.com Inc. founder is the latest in a string of mega-deals for residential properties in the U.S.

"I would say it's one of the most handsome properties in the world, let alone Los Angeles", said local agent Kurt Rappaport.

According to Architectural Digest, which featured the Warner Estate in 1992, the nine-acre lot features a "13,600-square-foot Georgian-style mansion, expansive terraces and gardens, two guesthouses, nursery, and three hothouses, tennis court, swimming pool, nine-hole golf course, and motor court complete with its own service garage and gas pumps".

Earlier this week, it was reported that Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos sold almost $4.1 billion shares in his company, but the executive is making news yet again with the purchase of media mogul David Geffen's Warner Estate in Beverly Hills. Swipe ⏩ to view more of the house.
