Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos Buys $68 Million Mansion on Famous Miami Island

The world’s third richest man will now be neighbors with Tom Brady and Ivanka Trump on the man-made island known as “billionaire bunker.”

MIAMI, FLORIDA — Jeff Bezos is moving to the Sunshine State.

According to multiple reports, the Amazon founder and executive chairman recently purchased a $68 million water-front property in the ‘Billionaire Bunker’ – a man-made island in Miami’s Biscayne Bay. The three-bedroom house was built in 1965 and sits on 2.8 acres.

Bezos, who also owns The Washington Post, is the latest A-list celebrity to purchase a home in the island’s posh Indian Creek Village. The 59-year-old is the world’s third-richest man, with a net worth of $161 billion.

“The Miami neighborhood is known as a hotspot for the country's wealthiest people, boasting a median house price of $29.5 million and just about 40 residents,” the Daily Mail reported. “Indian Creek Island is referred to as ‘the world's most exclusive municipality,’ with just 34 properties available across 300 acres.

“The island has its own police force which guards all of the amenities, including a private 18-hole golf course and is patrolled 24 hours a day on boats and Jet Skis.”

Superstar NFL quarterback Tom Brady owns an eco-mansion in Indian Creek Village that he began building with his ex-wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen, before they divorced. Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner also own a palatial pad in the luxurious neighborhood. Previous residents include Jay Z and Beyoncé and legendary Miami Dolphins coach Don Shula.

Bezos – who primarily lives in Los Angeles and Washington D.C. – is the latest uber-wealthy businessman to flee a blue state for Florida. Last year, Illinois’ richest resident Ken Griffin, moved his Chicago-based Citadel investment firm to Miami.
