Jeff Bezos spends $90,000,000 on third mansion on exclusive 'Billionaire Bunker' island

Jeff Bezos spends $90,000,000 on third mansion on exclusive 'Billionaire Bunker' island

The property is reported to have six bedrooms and be sprawled over 12,135 square feet. But if you've got it, why not spend it?

Jeff Bezos, Amazon's executive chairman, has reportedly dropped a fairly jaw-dropping amount on a new mansion, not to replace another, but to add to his portfolio.

The $90 million mansion is on Indian Creek Island, Florida, which has been dubbed the so-called "Billionaire Bunker" island thanks to how many billionaires own property on it.

It's not even Bezos' first property in the area, and he's now reportedly spent $237 million on houses in the vicinity, so he's clearly a fan.

This new mansion apparently boasts 12,135 square feet of room, with an outdoor pool and its own views over a peaceful waterfront. It has six bedrooms and we'd guess there's a pretty wide range of other hidden amenities to justify that price tag.

Indian Creek has spent quite a long time near the very top of the affordability index in the US, with Zillow calling it the most expensive city in the US to live in back in 2021.

Bezos has actually been living there for a few months now, having moved back to the area in late 2023 to be closer to his family, apparently.

He announced the move on Instagram back in November 2023 and clearly felt quite emotional about it after a couple of decades living in Seattle where Amazon's main HQ is.

Of course, that doesn't mean his only property is in Florida now - Bezos is in the stratosphere where wealth is concerned (and thanks to his Blue Origin space company, he's literally up there sometimes, too).

So, he owns property in New York, Beverly Hills, Texas, Hawaii and more besides, giving him plenty of options if he's looking for somewhere to spend a night.

The new mansion on Indian Creek Island will be a nice addition, doubtless, though, given that it backs onto a private 18-hole golf course for residents. That's the sort of bonus that not many houses come with, although he's obviously paying quite a lot for it all.

Amusingly, though, that "Billionaire Bunker" label on the island is a bit of a red herring, since it might well make people think that there are doomsday bunkers there to be bought, too.

This isn't the case, but it's a well-known fact that plenty of the world's richest people have been buying up bunkers in far more remote locations in the last few years, looking to get some sort of insurance policy against possible societal collapse or nuclear war.

These bunkers can be quite glamorous in their own right, and they're certainly hugely expensive, but you won't find many on Floridian islands with golf courses next door, sadly for their mega-rich owners.
