Jeff Bezos unveils ‘party pad’ renovations to DC MUSEUM he is turning into a private mansion

Richest man in the world Jeff Bezos purchased the former Textile Museum in Washington D.C. in 2016

This is where the richest man in the world plans to entertain the country’s political elite. 

As part of his takeover of Washington D.C., Jeff Bezos paid $23 million for the former Textile Museum in Kalorama, Washington D.C., in 2016.

The 27,000-square-feet home was already the biggest in the city, but the Amazon founder and Washington Post owner dropped an additional $12 million in 2017 to expand and renovate it.  

Bezos and his wife MacKenzie will use the pad as both a family residency and an entertaining pad. Surely they will have good guests, as their wealthy neighbors include the Obamas and Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

The Washingtonian obtained copies of the blueprints for the former museum’s renovations, and they reveal just how extravagant Bezos’ pad in the capital will be.

The home will have 25 bathrooms, 11 bedrooms, five living rooms, five staircases, three kitchens, two libraries, two workout rooms, two elevators, a walk-in wine room, a whiskey cellar and a huge ballroom for parties. 

The old museum includes two separate buildings: the Pope house, where Bezos and his family will live, and the Wood house, where the magnate will entertain.
