Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos picks up neighbor’s Beverly Hills home for $13M

The man who was momentarily the richest in the world now has two adjoining parcels

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos seems to be doing some celebratory shopping following his company’s $13.7 billion acquisition of Whole Foods.

He has added a second Beverly Hills home to his shopping cart for $12.9 million in an off-market deal. The location is Amazon-Prime-level convenient — it’s right next door to his other 90210 abode.

Built in 1956, Bezo’s new digs sit on a half-acre lot that abuts his nearly 12,000-square-foot Spanish-style mansion on more than two acres, the Los Angeles Times reported. It spans 4,586 square feet with four bedrooms and six bathrooms. It has outdoor patio space, a swimming pool and a motor court with two gated entrances.

Bezos purchased the first Beverly Hills estate in 2007 for $24.5 million.

Bezos, who founded Amazon in 1994 and owns about 81 million shares in the company, has a net worth of roughly $85 billion, making him one of the richest people in the world, according to the Times. His net worth topped $90 billion for a brief moment last week, allowing him to temporarily dethrone Bill Gates as the richest man in the world, according to Forbes. However, an afternoon dip in Amazon’s stock price caused Bezos to slip back behind Gates, who held the title since 2013.

Amazon recently moved its TV and film production arm into the Culver Studios lot at 9336 W. Washington Boulevard in June. [LAT] — Subrina Hudson
