Hindustan Times: Jeff Bezos, the Amazon founder, and the world’s third richest man, has bought a $68 million mansion in Florida’s exclusive “Billionaire Bunker” enclave for his fiancee Lauren Sanchez, according to a report.The outlet reported that Bezos with a net worth of $163 billion, according to Bloomberg, acquired the three-bedroom, three-bathroom estate on Indian Creek Island in June in an off-market deal.
The purchase came a month after the former Amazon CEO proposed to Sanchez with a massive diamond ring worth an estimated $2.5 million.The couple celebrated their engagement on his $500 million yacht, which features a helicopter pad, a swimming pool, and a mermaid statue resembling Sanchez.
The new home is located on a man-made barrier island that has its own municipality, mayor, and police force. It is also home to celebrities such as Tom Brady, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, Carl Icahn, and Julio Iglesias.The 9,259-square-foot mansion was built in 1965 and sits on 2.8 acres of land on the waterfront. It was previously owned by Tulia Soucy de Gonzalez Gorrondona, a former hotelier and manager at MTM Star International Corp., a company with ties to Panama, Bloomberg reported.
Public records show that the last recorded sale before Bezos was in 1982 for $1.4 million. Adjusted for inflation, that’s about $4.4 million yesterday.
