Amazon founder Jeff Bezos owns one more home in DC.
Under the name The Capitol Revocable Trust, Bezos purchased 2325 S Street NW (map) on Friday for $5 million. The purchaser name is remarkably similar to Cherry Revocable Trust, the entity that the Amazon founder used to buy the former Textile Museum for $23 million in 2016. The museum, which Bezos has been renovating to serve as his primary DC residence for the last few years, sits directly across the street from 2325 S Street NW.
Listed with Washington Fine Properties in December for $4.995 million, the four-bedroom at 2325 S Street NW went under contract in two weeks, remarkably fast for a listing priced this high. At the time it was listed, UrbanTurf wrote about the new home, joking that the new owner could be Bezos' neighbor.
Washington Fine Properties did not respond to comment about the transaction.
