Mark Bezos, younger brother of world’s richest man Jeff Bezos, is selling his swanky 4-acre estate in Scarsdale, NY, for $11 million.
Built in 1905, the property last changed hands in 2008 for $4 million. The younger Bezos soon embarked on a major renovation to the home.
It now features modern amenities and “timeless finishes,” according to the listing, which describes it as “one of the most beautiful homes in Scarsdale.”
The property includes a main house with six bedrooms, four bathrooms, and five powder rooms, and a four-bedroom, four-bathroom guesthouse.
The approximately 10,000-square-foot main house features a 22-foot entry foyer, which leads to a living room with custom bar, kitchen with casual dining area, and formal dining room.
Other rooms worth noting include a home office, home theater, game room equipped with a golf simulator, gym, wine cellar, and second-floor atrium.
The 3,500-square-foot guesthouse includes a great room, kitchen, and changing rooms.
Outside, there are dining and lounging spaces, a heated pool with waterslide, spa, and stone fire pit.
Located just a half-hour train ride from midtown Manhattan, the upscale Westchester County community boasts “stellar public schools and luxurious parks and pools,” according to the New York Times. Bezos’ purchase and subsequent renovations resulted in “inflated prices and taxes for his neighbors.”
The posh neighborhood is right in the middle of Scarsdale, close to Heathcote Five Corners, Scarsdale Village, and the Golden Horseshoe shopping center.
Bezos has put roots down in the community. He’s served as a volunteer firefighter for the Scarsdale Fire Department, and even gave a popular Ted Talk about his experience.
Bezos has also served as senior vice president of communications, marketing, and events for the Robin Hood Foundation, an anti-poverty organization. Previously, he owned an advertising agency, which he sold in 2006. He is also a founding partner of Venly.
