For nearly $1.5 million, you can buy the residential property that Bezos, now the world’s richest man, rented in the mid-1990s for a business venture then known as Cadabra Inc., as first reported by GeekWire. Cadabra eventually went on to become Amazon, now one of the world’s biggest publicly traded companies.
The three-bedroom, 1.75-bath house, which is listed for $1.48 million is located in Bellevue, Washington, the third-largest city in the Seattle metropolitan area.
“A slice of history-Jeff Bezos started Amazon in the garage in the 1990's!” a Zillow posting about the home said.
So far, the home, which was remodeled in 2001, has been on the market for one day. In 2009, the home sold for $620,000 -- the last time it was on the market. It sold for a fraction of that at $375,000 in 2005.
