It seems like the search is over for Amazon’s chief executive officer as he reportedly purchased not just one, not two, but three Manhattan penthouse apartment units at 212 Fifth Avenue in New York. The deal includes a three-story condominium and two additional units located right below it.

Bezos main residence, called The Crown, spans over 10,079 square feet of living space that occupies the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th floors of the building. It has five bedrooms and five bathrooms inside. The triplex highlights a private elevator and multiple verandas with an over-looking view of Madison Square Park.

The Crown’s price-tag was $58 million in the listing, although, reports didn’t confirm the exact amount Bezos has paid for it. Together with the two other units, adjacent to The Crown, he paid a total of $80 million. That makes Bezos whole property to be a total of 17,000 square feet with 12 bedrooms.

The interior of the penthouse is a state-of-the-art architecture. It is very exquisite with plenty of giant windows to showcase the beautiful Manhattan view. The custom kitchen has a marvelous Ash Millwork design, marble table tops, and high-end Gaggenau appliances. It also has an elegant library with a marble and glass chimney.
