WHAT’S HOUSE HUNTING LIKE FOR THE WORLD’S RICHEST MAN?

The sale price breaks the previous record for Los Angeles County last year with the $150 million sale of Chartwell, the Bel-Air estate that appeared in “The Beverly Hillbillies.”

Bezos’ new home includes amenities like a tennis court, pool and golf course, according to the report.

The 9-acre estate — surrounded by tall hedges and a gate — was originally built in the 1920s for Jack Warner, founder and former president of Warner Bros. The Hollywood mogul ended up expanding the estate with several neighboring properties, Architectural Digest reported. It was reportedly the site of many star-studded parties from the 1930s through ‘60s.
