American Forbes notes that recently the richest man in the world (his fortune is $ 131.3 billion) and his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez were seen when examining the most expensive mansions in the most prestigious areas of Los Angeles, Beverly Hills and Bel Air. The legendary estate, designed in the 1930s for Jack Warner, who was then president of the Warner Bros. film company, could not help but attract their attention. In 1992, Architectural Digest magazine wrote that only a few Beverly Hills homes can rival Warner’s estate. “It was and remains a model of the magnate’s estate,” the magazine emphasized.
After the death of Jack Warner in 1978, his wife owned the estate. After her death in 1990, media tycoon David Geffen bought it for $ 47.5 million. Then it was a record amount paid for a residential property in the Los Angeles area. Now Geffen sold it to Bezos, and again at a record price for these places.
