Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has purchased a home in California that make his DC abodes truly look like pied-a-terres.
The Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday that Bezos has purchased the Warner Estate owned by David Geffen for a whopping $165 million. The deal is a record price paid for a home in the Los Angeles area.
Built ninety years ago by Jack Warner, the former president of Warner Brothers, the estate spreads out over nine acres and features a number of luxury amenities, including a nine-hole golf course. The Journal reports that Bezos has also purchased a plot of undeveloped land in Los Angeles for $90 million.
In related news, Bezos sold approximately $4 billion in Amazon stock in the last two weeks.
