Bezos paid $23 million for the 27,000-square-foot mansion at 2320-2330 S Street NW in 2016. Neighbors in the upscale Kalorama neighborhood include President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, with Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump also right around the corner. Bezos’s home was formerly the Textile Museum. He immediately undertook a $12 million renovation, which turned the mansion into an estate.
- Estate details – luxury defined: The sprawling compound boasts 25 bathrooms, 11 bedrooms, five living rooms, two kitchens, two libraries, two workout rooms, two elevators, a 1500-square-foot ballroom, and a massive garden in the back. There’s also a whiskey cellar and and a wine room, according to the Washingtonian.
- Dig Deeper: The mansion actually comprises two homes, the Pope and the Wood, which date back to the early 1900s and are joined by a connecting walkway. A 36-foot-long gallery, a solarium (AKA garden room) is a beautiful addition.
Privacy is a priority: In January this year, it was reported that Bezos had also bought the four-bedroom detached home across the street for a modest $5 million. The Washingtonian suggested that the property, which was on the market for less than a month, had been bought by the Amazon boss to protect his privacy, as it had a direct view into his mansion across the street.
- Party to celebrate completion: Bezos threw a lavish party at his finally completed Washington DC mansion in January. The event was attended by Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Microsoft founder Bill Gates and actor Ben Stiller, the Daily Mail reported.
