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 ObamaDems ready to move past Michelle Obama’s ‘go high’ message Obamas greeted by screaming fans at Martha's Vineyard Kamala Harris tied with Bernie Sanders as betting favorite for 2020 Dems MORE, and President-elect Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpDems make history, and other takeaways from Tuesday's primaries Pawlenty loses comeback bid in Minnesota Establishment-backed Vukmir wins Wisconsin GOP Senate primary MORE’s daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, who will serve as an adviser to his father-in-law.
