$500M property portfolio

Bezos’ real estate portfolio is worth more than $500 million, making him the country’s 25th-largest landowner, according to the Land Report.

Undoubtedly, the trophy property is the 10-acre mansion in Beverly Hills, California, which Bezos bought from David Geffen for $165 million in 2020.

At the time, it was the most expensive real estate transaction in Los Angeles, only eclipsed by venture capital entrepreneur Marc Andreessen’s $177 million 7-acre Malibu compound in 2021, and more recently, Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s $200 million oceanfront estate in Malibu.

Known as the Jack Warner Estate because the original brick house was built for Harry Warner, the former president of Warner Bros. Studios, today the compound boasts eight bedrooms, 10 bathrooms estate, a koi pond, European garden, lagoon-like pool and spa, waterfalls, tennis court and tree-lined cobblestone driveway.

In Beverly Hills, the Blue Origin founder also owns two mansions next door to each other on North Alpine Drive. One is a Spanish-style seven-bedroom manse that he bought in 2007 for $24.45 million.

He acquired the neighboring estate in 2017 for $12.19 million, adding another half-acre to his existing property.

Five floor-apartment and four other Manhattan homes

In Manhattan, Bezos has taken over the top five floors of 212 Fifth Avenue, directly facing Madison Square Park, dropping $96 million to form a mega penthouse condo in the 24-story building.

It has not gone unnoticed: protesters picketed it in 2020.

Bezos also has four apartments in the Art Deco Century at 25 Central Park West. In 1999, he bought three units from then Sony Music head Tommy Mottola for $7.65 million

.A few years later, in 2012, he paid $5.3 million for an adjacent unit from Eve Preminger, filmmaker Otto Preminger’s niece. The two purchases were made using a limited-liability company called Jetima, according to the Wall Street Journal.

When Bezos visits the Washington Post office, he stays at the former Textile Museum, a 27,000-square-foot property he snapped up for $23 million in 2016.

Located in DC’s upscale Kalorama neighborhood, the Georgian-style residence features 10 bedrooms, eight full bathrooms, six powder rooms, 11 fireplaces and a private garden.

And just in case that wasn’t enough, in 2020, he bought a 4,800-square-foot home across the street. The “modest” four-bedroom home features a country-style kitchen, five full bathrooms, two powder rooms, carved marble fireplaces, a 700-bottle wine cellar and roof deck.

Probably his most sentimental residence is in Medina, Seattle, which he bought in 1998, four years after he founded Amazon, and where he raised his family. Bezos paid $10 million for the 5.3-acre waterfront property.

In 2010, he reportedly renovated it for $28 million and bought the next door five-bedroom Tudor-style home for $50 million, giving him 310 feet of Lake Washington shoreline. Today, the compound is said to be worth over $118 million.

And then there’s Corn Ranch in west Texas, a 30,000-acre property that serves as Blue Origin’s base. In 2004, Bezos reportedly bought the land, including a four-bedroom stucco house, from attorney Ronald Stasny for an undisclosed amount.

Sánchez has her own $6.2 million home

Sánchez herself brings a major slice of property in Washington, close to Seattle, to the marriage.

Her ex-husband, top talent agent Patrick Whitesell, transferred their Washington estate to her in full following the completion of their divorce, The Post revealed Monday.

The former couple had purchased the sprawling 7,000-square-foot Mercer Island home in 2017 for $6.2 million — one year before Sánchez, 53, had entered into an affair with Jeff Bezos.

Specifically, the residence was transferred to Sánchez in May 2020 after their divorce finalized in October 2019, records show.

However, in terms of a prenup, their real estate is already entangled.

In 2021, Bezos and Sánchez purchased a 14-acre beachfront home in Hawaii for $78 million. Situated on the La Perouse Bay in Maui, the isolated property is a tropical oasis, flanked by state parkland and rocky lava fields.
