(New York Post) Jeff Bezos is giving back to the people who raised him — in a big way.
The Amazon titan recently helped his parents buy two homes next to each other in South Florida for a combined $74 million, a source told The Post.
For the first home, a company tied to the Bezos Family Foundation purchased a six-bedroom, seven-bathroom waterfront estate on July 22 for $34 million, The Real Deal first reported.
Located in Coral Gables, near Miami, Jackie and Mike Bezos (Bezos’ mother and stepfather), are linked to Forgotten Fountain LLC — the Delaware entity that is shown to have bought the over 12,800-square-foot home for that sum, according to TRD.
The estate was financed with a $5 million loan from Bank of America.
Raul Calvoz and Raquel Cordon were the home’s owners. The two had bought it in 2018 for $8.5 million. Cordon, who was the former CEO of PetsMD, and Calvoz, then began a complete gut renovation.
And it appears their hard work is paying off with one hefty profit.
“It is a 2021 Masterpiece located in one of only two private and gated Coral Gables communities,” the previous listing noted.
Set on almost 2 acres, the estate features 200 feet of water views with direct ocean access.
It also includes a chef’s kitchen featuring a gas cooktop, a cooking island, a food warmer, double ovens, and an expansive window overlooking the pool and waterway.
Other features include covered terraces, second-story terraces, and an expansive pool area featuring a fully equipped kitchen and dining area with a barbeque grill.
