Jeff Bezos has acquired an extensive real estate portfolio. Previously, his crowning purchase was a property in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods of Seattle; but, this investment has been eclipsed by his latest stellar acquisitions.
Bezos recently bought a $165 million house in Los Angeles and an extraordinary penthouse apartment in New York.
We took a closer look at Jeff Bezos’ most recent real estate purchases–and selected the most impressive homes for sale next door to his new properties.
Bezos’ new penthouse on Fifth Avenue in New York and what you can buy in the neighborhood
The founder of Amazon.com recently has bought a new US$16M apartment on the 20th floor of 212 Fifth Avenue. He began searching for apartments in Manhattan in April, immediately after his divorce from Mackenzie Bezos was announced. According to the New York Post, Bezos expected to invest around $60 million in a new home in the area.
Last June, he purchased three apartment units in the same building, amounting to a total of $80 million. So, the final property investment in the Fifth Avenue skyscraper comprised the missing piece of his Manhattan real estate empire.
Apparently, Jeff Bezos plans to combine his four homes in the New York skyscraper into one dream house. And the location is perfect: NoMad is one of the most vibrant, up and coming neighborhoods in Manhattan.
On JamesEdition, we offer 20 homes for sale in this area, with a median price of US$3.5 million–much more affordable than the price that Bezos paid for his newest trophy.

Jeff Bezos’ US$165 million house in Beverly Hills and what is available for purchase nearby
In February 2020, Mr. Bezos closed the largest real estate deal in California.
The world’s richest man bought a megamansion in Beverly Hills from media mogul David Geffen, co-founder of DreamWorks. The estate originally was designed for Jack Warner, another movie titan, and the president of the Warner Bros. film studio.
The famous property features two guest houses, a tennis court, a swimming pool, and a nine-hole golf course, according to Architectural Digest. The estate is located mere minutes from Bezos’ other California properties. In 2007, Mr. Bezos purchased a US$24.45 million Spanish-style mansion and later bought the 1950s Beverly Hills house next door for US$12.9 million.
With such a wide range of prices, how much should you expect to spend when choosing a new home somewhere on Angelo Drive in Beverly Hills? According to JamesEdition data, the most expensive homes in the area can cost up to US$115 million; the most affordable ones come with a price tag of approximately US$4.5 million.
You too can purchase an undeveloped site with breathtaking, panoramic views over the valley– and design the home of your dreams.
The Enchanted Hill, a 120-acre undeveloped site in Beverly Hills, was purchased in 1997 by the late Paul G. Allen, Microsoft co-founder, and philanthropist. The property has undergone extensive infrastructure improvements including a one-mile private street and two separate gated entrances via Benedict Canyon Drive and Angelo Drive. Only minutes from Rodeo Drive and The Beverly Hills Hotel, the iconic, hilltop property hovers high above the city, offering unrivaled 360-degree views from downtown to the ocean.
