In 2016, Bezos paid $23 million in cash for a property in DC’s exclusive Kalorama neighborhood, home to the Obamas as well as Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner. It’s less than six miles from the future site of Amazon’s offices.
Bezos is said to be spending $12 million to renovate the homes and the surrounding property.
While the property doesn’t appear to offer much privacy in the front — it was the site of the Textile Museum for about a century — it includes two separate structures with nearly 27,000 square feet of living space and a spacious backyard.
The larger of the two homes, the Wood House, will be for entertaining guests, while the Pope House will serve as the family’s living quarters when they’re in town. The Bezos’ home base is in Medina, Washington — a secluded, 5.3-acre compound on the shores of Lake Washington.
The renovation plans were approved in September 2017 and are now underway. Below, check out the floor plan of Bezos’ future mansion in Washington, DC.
