Jeff Bezos may soon own a second home in DC.
UrbanTurf learned earlier this week that the founder of Amazon is scheduled to close on the four-bedroom home at 2325 S Street NW (map) on Friday. The home, listed for just under $5 million with Bobbie Brewster, Kimberly Casey and Daryl Judy of Washington Fine Properties, went under contract within two weeks of being listed in December. It sits directly across the street from the former Textile Museum, which Bezos purchased for $23 million in 2016 and has been renovating ever since. Washington Fine Properties did not comment on the transaction.
It will be interesting to see what Bezos will do with his new acquisition. Reconfigured and renovated since it was last sold in 2001, the home has a four-level elevator, guest quarters, and a climate-controlled 700-bottle wine cellar, so it could make for a good guesthouse (for someone owns a museum-turned-home across the street). A roof deck off the third-floor master suite looks down on what will be Bezos' primary DC residence.
When complete, the renovated mansion will spread out over 27,000 square feet with 11 bedrooms, five living rooms, three kitchens and an expansive ballroom, among other amenities.
