Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos has reportedly bought another house in the District of Columbia, which is across the street from his first one.
Following his purchase of the $23 million former Textile Museum and turning it into his D.C. residence in 2016, the tech billionaire has now become the new owner of a second compound in Kalorama, directly across the street from the other one, according to a Washingtonian report attributed to an unnamed source.
The mansion, located at 2325 S Street, Northwest Washington, was listed for approximately $5 million in December with Washington Fine Properties’ Bobbie Brewster, Kimberly Casey and Daryl Judy.
The place was sold in less than two weeks after being listed. It was previously purchased in 2001 for $1,446,000.
It has four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a climate-controlled 700-bottle wine cellar, a roof deck, a four-level elevator and guest quarters. It will have 11 bedrooms and other extensions over 27,000 square feet after going through renovations.
As of January 2020, the Amazon founder is still the richest person in the world, with an estimated net worth of $115 billion, despite the fact that he lost $10 billion in the past year.
