Bezos' new mansion in Beverly Hills is reportedly the most expensive sold in the Los Angeles area.
Geffen purchased the Warner Estate in 1990 for $47.5 million, a then-record price for a Los Angeles-area home, according to the Journal.
According to the Architectural Digest 1992, the estate reflects Georgian-style architecture, with "expansive terraces and gardens, two guest houses, a nursery, three hothouses, tennis court, swimming pool, nine-hole golf course, and a motor court".More news: Global carbon emissions 'flatline' in 2019
In addition to the amenities, the property comes with more than its share of Hollywood history.
The sale price breaks the previous record for Los Angeles County a year ago with the $150 million sale of Chartwell, the Bel-Air estate that appeared in "The Beverly Hillbillies".
The iconic house was originally owned by Warner Bros co-founder Jack Warner and his family since the 1930s. And Bezos' real estate empire doesn't end there.More news: Major League Baseball considering new playoff format and live selection TV show, report says
The world's richest man has turned into an art connoisseur and gone on a shopping spree, remarked recent media reports. The company reportedly paid $90 million for the land. Bezos was seen socializing on the entertainment mogul's mega-yacht last summer, visible in an Instagram post with girlfriend Lauren Sanchez and Goldman Sachs Group Inc.'s former chief, Lloyd Blankfein. This property is just 1.7 miles away from his other purchase, according to Variety. Amazon has faced criticism over its treatment of workers who want the company to do more to combat climate change, while Bezos has also been the subject of worldwide intrigue over suggestions that his personal phone may have been hacked by the Saudi government.
