The founder of Amazon and one of the richest men in the world Jeff Bezos bought the estate in Los Angeles for $ 165 million. This amount was a record for real estate market Los Angeles, reports The Wall Street Journal.
We are talking about the estate of Warner Estate, located in Beverly hills (California). Bezos bought it from media magnate David Geffen without the participation of the agents for the sale of real estate. The estate covers an area of 3.6 hectares. It was designed in the 1930s for Warner Bros. President Jack Warner. There is a wide terrace, huge gardens, several guest houses, a tennis court and a Golf course. Geffen bought the estate in 1990 for 47.5 million dollars.
The amount of the transaction between Betasom and Geffen has set a new record for the County of Los Angeles. So, in July of last year a luxurious mansion with an area of 5250 square meters, located in the suburbs of Los Angeles Holmby hills has sold for a record at the time of 119.75 million dollars.
The amount of the transaction is almost twice inferior to the American record in the housing market: in January 2019, the billionaire founder of hedge Fund Citadel, Kenneth Griffin bought a luxurious penthouse in new York for 238 million dollars. If to speak about world records, the most expensive deal with housing considered buying a home in Hong Kong in 2017 for 361 million dollars.
Recall, according to Bloomberg, Jeff Bezos is now ranked first in the list of the richest people in the world. His fortune is estimated at 132 billion dollars – against the backdrop of this amount, buying estates in Los Angeles looks like a modest spending, like the recent purchase of Bezoom over $ 80 million on three apartments in new York city with a total area of over 1,500 square meters.
