In Seattle, Washington, a mansion with IT history is up for sale. The house that Jeff Bezos rented for $890 a month in the 1990s and where one of the richest men on the planet invented the Amazon marketplace can be purchased for $2.28 million.
Jeff Bezos, 60, now worth an estimated $177.5 billion, founded the first e-commerce giant in the garage of his home. A landmark event that completely changed the idea of trade occurred in 1994. Amazon was originally conceived as an online marketplace for books, but over time it expanded to include other products from sellers around the world.
In November 2023, Joseph Bezos shared a nostalgic video tour of his garage on social media, showing a completely recreated “office”, desk, computer and basic office supplies. Since then, the modest building in Bellevue has gained new fans – despite the fact that the original house was rebuilt in 2001.
The small townhouse today offers 154 square feet of usable space, three bedrooms, a large living room, a maple and granite kitchen, skylights, a fully fenced backyard with a large party deck and a hot tub. It was last sold in 2019, when the deal was worth $1.52 million. It is unknown who exactly owns the house today. As for Bezos himself, who has remained loyal to Washington state for many years, the Billionaire is moving to Miami. The East Coast luxury real estate market is more in line with his status and needs.
