Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos is now the owner of the largest home in Washington, D.C., The Washington Post reported Thursday, revealing that the billionaire business tycoon purchased the 27,000-square-foot former Textile Museum in D.C.’s upscale Kalorama neighborhood.

 

The Cherry Revocable Trust bought the building in October for $23 million. But it wasn’t until Thursday that it was revealed that the Amazon founder and CEO was the property’s owner. Plans to renovate the building are still under review by the Advisory Neighborhood Commission.

Bezos has a home in the Seattle area, where Amazon is headquartered. He doesn’t oversee daily operations at the newspaper, making it unlikely that he’ll permanently relocate to the city. Rather, the home is expected to be a place for Bezos and his family to stay during trips to Washington, the Post reports.

In Kalorama, Bezos, his wife and two children will be joined by some high-profile neighbors, including outgoing President and first lady Barack and Michelle ObamaMichelle LeVaughn Robinson ObamaMichelle Obama: We raise men to feel 'entitled' Michelle Obama: 'Don't tweet every thought' Michelle Obama, Prince Harry visit public school in Chicago MORE, and President-elect Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpDems win from coast to coast Falwell after Gillespie loss: 'DC should annex' Northern Virginia Dems see gains in Virginia's House of Delegates MORE’s daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, who will serve as an adviser to his father-in-law.
