The parents of Amazon honcho Jeff Bezos recently shelled out a cool $74 million for a just-add-water compound in South Florida. Jacklyn and Miguel Bezos, the mother and step-father of Jeff Bezos, set their sights on a pair of 21st-century Tuscan-inspired villas in Coral Gables. According to news reports, the individual properties sold for $34 million and $40 million.
One of the two houses is a Tuscan-inspired villa on 2.12 acres; it contains six bedrooms and eight baths across 8,713 sq. ft. of interiors. If research informs correctly, the second of the two homes sits on a cul-de-sac lot of 1.89 acres, and features modern-inspired interiors; it contains six bedrooms and seven baths.
Bezos is said to have helped foot the bill for the homes. Not terribly surprising; the past five years have seen the Amazon kingpin in heavyweight acquisition mode, putting together an estate in Washington, D.C., for nearly $30 million, spending about $120 million for a compound in the sky in Manhattan, and dropping over $250 million in Beverly Hills. Capping such a flamboyant run is his most recent purchase: an estate in Hawaii, which Bezos closed on for $78 million late last year.
