The full extent of Amazon founder Jeff Bezos’ lakefront property in Seattle, Washington has been revealed in exclusive new photos.
The third-richest man in the world reportedly bought two properties in the affluent Seattle suburb of Medina in 1998 and 2005 for a combined price of $60 million.
Following a major renovation of the properties in the mid-2000s, the primary residence is now a 25,000-square-foot, six-bedroom, nine-bathroom Tudor-style mansion.
It also includes an indoor and outdoor pool, a large guest house and waterfront access to Lake Washington.
The second property features a lavishly landscaped garden and another large home that Bezos reportedly used as his office.
The lots have significant waterfront access to Lake Washington including two large docks, a boat shed and a small water slide. The main house has an indoor and an outdoor pool.
The massive waterfront property in the affluent Seattle suburb of Medina was purchased by Bezos decades ago for around $60 million and has since undergone an extensive renovation

Extensive renovations to the property in 2010 are estimated to have cost $28 million for a total of $88 million spent on the property – $118 million when adjusted for inflation.
The Medina Peninsula is accessible from Seattle via the world’s longest floating bridge, which spans 7,710 feet across Lake Washington. The Tony Peninsula is also the famous home of Bill Gates, where he lived for many years with his now ex-wife Melinda.
The sweeping property reveal comes just weeks after Bezos bought a waterfront mansion in Indian Creek Village on Miami’s Biscayne Bay. The purchase took place over the counter in June – the 59-year-old Bezos kept his identity a secret at the time.
The three-bedroom man-made barrier island property spans 6 acres and was built in 1965.
It was previously owned by a Panama-affiliated company called MTM Star International, which acquired it in 1982 for $1.4 million.
The Amazon founder, who has been living the good life with fiancé Lauren Sanchez since leaving the company, wants to buy more properties in the area, an anonymous source told Bloomberg.

As Bezos expands his impressive real estate portfolio, which also includes homes in Beverly Hills, Manhattan, Texas and Washington, DC, he also recently completed construction of the world’s largest yacht, which cost a whopping $500 million.
He and now-fiancée Lauren Sanchez, 53, have been sailing around the coast of Europe on an extended engagement cruise ship — dubbed koru, which means new beginnings — since the start of the summer.
They’ve hosted a long list of famous guests, including Oprah Winfrey, Kris Jenner, and Medina neighbor Bill Gates.
The lovebirds have been spotted in numerous luxury locations including Portofino, Saint-Tropez and Cannes.
The 230-foot yacht that Bezos commissioned in 2018 currently holds the record as the tallest superyacht in the world.
Notably, on the bow is a wooden sculpture resembling Bezos’ future second wife.
The couple hosted the secret engagement party aboard Bezos’ yacht off Italy’s Amalfi Coast, two months after the couple got engaged in May.
