Famous billionaire and Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos, has reportedly resumed construction on his $175 million home following his engagement to his girlfriend of five years, Lauren Sánchez.
According to a Daily Mail report on Thursday, May 25, workers are currently working on the roof of the expansive, three-story mega-mansion located in Beverly Hills, California.
Bezos, whose net worth is $138 billion, purchased the 10-acre estate previously owned by former Warner Bros. president Jack Warner in early 2020.
The 28,000-square-foot home features the main house, a guesthouse, a gym, a pergola, and a separate house for security.
Following his engagement to Sanchez, Bezos plans to expand the property with a new pool house, a powder room, and retaining walls.
Bezos proposed to his Emmy Award-winning journalist girlfriend aboard his $500 million superyacht, Koru, while in the South of France for the 2023 Cannes Film Festival.
The news comes shortly after the couple were seen kissing and cuddling on board the superyacht over the weekend.
Sanchez, 53, was also spotted wearing an engagement ring with a huge diamond on her finger, confirming her acceptance of Bezos’ proposal.
The couple made their relationship public in January 2019 after Bezos ended his 25-year marriage to MacKenzie Scott, with whom he shares four children.
During that period, Sanchez, the former co-host of Good Day LA, was also going through a divorce from her husband of 13 years, Patrick Whitesell.
Sánchez shares two children with Whitesell and has a son from a previous relationship with former NFL star Tony Gonzalez.
