Amazon founder Jeff Bezos is expanding his real estate portfolio with the purchase of a $79 million mansion in South Florida. And it’s next door to a home he paid $68 million for in June.
Bloomberg reported that the seven bedroom, 14 bath estate is located in the exclusive Indian Creek area of Miami. The man-made barrier island is referred to as “Billionaire Bunker” and is home to notable residents including investor Carl Icahn, ex-NFL star Tom Brady, singer Julio Iglesias, and Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner.
Bezos reportedly paid 7.1% below a May listing price of $85 million. A Zillow listing for the property put the Zestimate in the $70 million range.
Bloomberg reported that the sale was handled by realtors Dina Goldentayer and Danilo Tavares with Douglas Elliman.
Goldentayer posted a reel on Instagram (below) celebrating the sale, but there’s no mention of Bezos. She called Indian Creek “an unmatched residential experience” in the clip, which showed the mansion and surrounding golf course.
The mansion spans roughly 19,000 square feet on 1.84 acres and includes a pool, theater, library and wine cellar, according to the listing.
He also owns a 417-foot, triple-masted sailing yacht that reportedly cost $500 million.
