Jeff Bezos buys estate for $165 mn: Report

Billionaire Amazon chief Jeff Bezos has purchased a Los Angeles-area estate for 165 million, setting a new record for the region, 'The Wall Street Journal' reported on Wednesday.

Bezos bought the Warner Estate from media mogul David Geffen, according to the Journal.

It said the deal topped a Los Angeles-area home price record set last year when Lachlan Murdoch paid around 150 million for a Bel-Air estate seen in 'The Beverly Hillbillies', a 1960s television show.

The Warner Estate spans nine acres (3.6 hectares) in Beverly Hills. It is a Georgian-style compound with a floor once owned by Napoleon, guest houses, a tennis court, and a nine-hole golf course.
