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 ObamaBlack stars reimagine 'Friends' to get out the vote Obama shares phone number to find out how Americans are planning to vote Michelle Obama: 'Don't listen to people who will say that somehow voting is rigged' MORE, and President-elect Donald TrumpDonald John TrumpBiden on Trump's refusal to commit to peaceful transfer of power: 'What country are we in?'
