It pays to be in the Jeff Bezos‘ inner circle of trust – especially if you’re his parents… and they paid for a palace of epic proportions in the Sunshine State.
Sources tell TMZ that Jackie and Mike Bezos – Jeff’s mother and stepfather, respectively – recently purchased a massive 12,000+ square foot home in a gated community in Coral Gables, Florida.
The closing price… 34 million dollars! Indeed, it’s an expensive purchase, but when your son is one of the richest people in the world, you can probably afford it. The real deal reports that they also bought a house next door for $40 million.
As for the property itself, it’s an absolute beauty – and worth every penny of the millions the Bezos have dropped on this thing. The house is on several levels, with 6 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. The kitchen is absolutely unbelievably large…it has two different islands, one for cooking and one for sitting.
The rest of the house is also stunning – in addition to all the usual, it includes an outdoor kitchen/dining area, built-in BBQ, swimming pool, private gym, indoor climbing wall, cellar wine cellar and a 9-car garage… just to name a few of the perks.
That probably covers Jeff for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day combined for a little while – assuming he bought it for them, which is likely. Of course, they can probably afford this place on their own too… Mike has worked in the oil industry for years, and he and Jackie have been running the Bezos Family Foundation for over 2 decades now.
Plus, reports say that Jeff actually got his people here to invest about $250,000 in Amazon stock back in the ’90s — which, if true, they might have a few billion of their own. So, yeah… they kinda roll in it too, it seems.
