Amazon founder Jeff Bezos expanded his real estate portfolio in the year 2021, ballooning it to nearly $600 million, with some high-profile purchases made in Hawaii and Manhattan. Despite relinquishing his title of world's richest man to rival Elon Musk, as well as the title of CEO of his e-commerce trillion-dollar company, Bezos is living it up in gorgeous locations.
The Blue Origin founder boasts a reported net worth of $195 billion, out of which he made $5 billion only last year. In total, he owns 14 pricey properties, including the ones he purchased when he first started making serious money in 1998. The properties typically ranged from $5 to $165 million in places like New York City, California, Texas, his home state of Washington, and Washington, DC. Here is a complete list of all the properties owned by Bezos.
Private Hawaii estate
In 2021, Bezos purchased a private Hawaii estate with three-buildings, situated on the La Perouse Bay on Valley Isle in Maui, Hawaii. It spans 14 acres and is surrounded by dormant lava fields. The property is valued at an estimated $78 million. It is not really clear when Bezos purchased the property, but he donated it to the Hawaii Land Trust — which helps in environmental conservation in Maui — in mid-September.
Colorado-based holding company Lochland Holdings sold the property to the billionaire in an off-market deal. The main building of the property is 4,450 square feet and has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The second building is a 1,839 square feet guesthouse with two bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, while the third is 1,815 square feet with three bedrooms and one bathroom. The property sits on a marine fishing reserve. Among the dormant lava fields lies the Haleakalā volcano, which last erupted in 1790. It is eight times larger than the Empire State Building in New York City and its hotspots can reach up to 2,500 degrees Fahrenheit. According to scientists, it is expected to erupt again within 500 years.
Manhattan's Fifth Avenue
In 2021, Bezos also added to the string of apartment purchases he made in the past on Manhattan's posh Fifth Avenue. He bought up to five properties over the course of three years, to form a de facto mega-mansion. The latest one was a $23 million unit in the same historic building where he had previously purchased four separate homes worth $96 million.
In 2019, Bezos initially bought three apartments in the building, which overlooks Madison Square Park, for $80 million. At the time, it was hailed as the most expensive real estate transaction in New York City for the year, according to the Wall Street Journal. The structure encompassed 17,000-square-feet with 12 bedrooms and more than one terrace. This included a three-floor, 10,000-square-foot penthouse with a grand ballroom, a three-bedroom unit and an adjoining four-bedroom pad with massive windows.
Originally the space was going to serve as a love nest for Bezos and his then-wife of 25 years, Mackenzie Scott, but the pair divorced in April of that year. In April 2020, Bezos bought the fourth unit in the luxe Madison Square Park apartment complex for $16 million. The de facto mega mansion is housed at 212 Fifth Avenue, comprising of a fitness center, golf simulator, game room, and movie screening room.
Residences in Washington, D.C
Across the street from the $23 million property he bought up in 2016, Bezos purchased a second Kalorama residence in Washington, D.C. The mansion boasts 27,000 square foot of space and was built in 1912. It was once a former textile museum and is listed among the National Register of Historic Places. Some of the residents of the area includes the Obamas, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. The billionaire mogul also purchased a second property for a considerably more modest $5 million. Bezos purchased two homes purchased in his home state of Washington in 1998, which the businessman combined into one estate. The pair of properties, situated in Medina cost the-then mogul $10 million.
Bezos already had an extensive Beverly Hills holdings upon which he expanded by purchasing the property adjacent to Assylum Records creator David Geffen’s estate in July 2020 for $10 million. The $165 million property purchased by Bezos in February of that year, is an enormous 10-acre estate that boasts of a 13,600-square-foot Georgian-style main house, two guest houses, a nursery and three hothouses, a tennis court, a swimming pool, expansive terraces, and a nine-hole golf course.
He also is the owner of a couple of other homes in Beverly Hills. He bought the first for $24.45 million in 2007 and snatched up an adjacent property 10 years later in 2017 for $12.9 million. The first was a Spanish-style mansion with a greenhouse, tennis court, swimming pool, six car garage and four fountains, containing seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms. Bezos first big real estate purchases, however, came in the form of two homes purchased in his home state of Washington in 1998, which the businessman combined into one estate that has served as his primary residence over the past few decades.
