Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos buys biggest house in D.C. for $23 million -- in cash
Kalorama, a highly affluent and sought-after neighborhood in Washington, D.C. has quite the historic background, especially in the political realm.
Past residents of the zip code include Franklin Roosevelt and Ted Kennedy, while future newcomers will soon include both the Obama family and Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner.
But it might be the area's newest billionaire resident that has everyone talking – mainly because he paid for all $23 million of his property in cash.
Jeff Bezos, Amazon CEO, recently purchased the 34,000-square-foot property at 2320 -2330 S Street Northwest in Kalorama, which consists of two landmark buildings in addition to (what once were) chauffeur quarters.
It's also the biggest house in all of Washington, D.C.
Check out the massive and historic property below:
Bezos' new estate boasts just under 27,000 square feet of living space, with 10 bedrooms and 14 total bathrooms (Eight full and six 'partial' bathrooms.)
The property most recently housed the Textile Museum for nearly a century, moving to the George Washington University campus in 2013.
The original listing said the property would be 'perfect for an embassy, school, discerning individual' – but we suppose "CEO of one of the most profitable companies in the world" suits the estate just as well.
