Bezos Doubles Down on Billionaires' Bunker, Buys Third $90 Million Mansion in Florida

Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has further solidified his presence in the ultra-exclusive Indian Creek Island in Florida, nicknamed the "Billionaire Bunker," by purchasing a third mansion for a staggering $90 million. This latest acquisition brings Bezos' total spending in the high-security enclave to $237 million.

Bezos' buying spree began last year, coinciding with his engagement to Lauren Sanchez. In June 2023, he secured his first property on the island for $68 million, followed by another valued at $79 million in October.

The newest addition to Bezos' real estate portfolio boasts six bedrooms and a sprawling 12,135 square feet of living space. This waterfront mansion boasts a luxurious lifestyle with a sprawling front lawn and an inviting outdoor pool.

Bezos' Move to Miami and Tax Advantages

In November 2023, Bezos announced his relocation from Seattle to Miami, citing a desire to be closer to family and a fondness for the city. This move also offered significant financial benefits, with Florida's tax policies being considerably more favorable to billionaires like Bezos. Currently ranked third on the Forbes' billionaire list with a net worth exceeding $200 billion, Bezos has long expressed his affinity for Miami, a city he considers home since founding Amazon in 1994.

What is the Billionaire Bunker?

Indian Creek Island is a gated community synonymous with exclusivity and unparalleled security. Accessible only via a guarded bridge and patrolled by a private police force 24/7, the island offers its elite residents – a mix of celebrities and business tycoons – a haven of luxury. Amenities include a private 18-hole golf course and a dedicated country club.

With a median home price of a staggering $29.5 million, Indian Creek Island rightfully holds the title of the "world's most exclusive municipality" and the nickname "Billionaire Bunker." Bezos joins an illustrious list of neighbors that includes Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, NFL legend Tom Brady, and investor Carl Icahn, all residing within the island's 41 properties.

Bezos' Expanding Real Estate Empire

This recent purchase further expands Bezos' real estate portfolio, estimated to be worth over $600 million. His holdings span prestigious locations like New York, Washington D.C., Beverly Hills, and West Texas. Notably, he also acquired a private estate in Hawaii for roughly $78 million in 2022.
