As my followers knew for days, as I reported last week the world’s richest man was in the neighborhood looking for estates, Bezos has now paid the most for any mansion in Los Angeles County.
Amazon Chief Executive Jeff Bezos has purchased the Warner Estate from media mogul David Geffen for $165 million, according to a person familiar with the transaction.
The deal marks a record for the Los Angeles area. The previous residential record was set late last year, when media executive Lachlan Murdoch paid roughly $150 million for Chartwell, a Bel-Air estate used as the Clampett residence in the television show “The Beverly Hillbillies.”
Geffen’s mansion, now belongs to Bezos, but Warner Bros. chief Jack Warner built the estate, which was the most opulent of any of all the studio heads.
