Home where Jeff Bezos launched Amazon for sale

Now that house is for sale.

The three-bedroom bungalow where Jeff Bezos started Amazon has gone up for sale for the first time in ten years - and it would set you back almost $1.5 million.

But since the entrepreneur lived at the 1,540 square-foot property, it has undergone a great deal of renovation work and was rebuilt in 2001.

Amazon's first home, a residential property at 10704 N.E. 28th St.in Bellevue, Wash., was listed for sale Monday at an asking price of $1,488,888, complete with an historic artifact on the curb.

But the oversized mailbox that Bezos installed to receive lots of big catalogs is still there, Sullivan said.

Open houses are scheduled from noon to 2 p.m. Wednesday and 1 p.m.to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and you never know who might show up.

The Everything Store, which documents the history of the company, claims Amazon was based at the garage for a few months before Bezos began hiring and moved to a small office. And that's when Bezos and his soon-to-be-former wife, MacKenzie, ended up moving to Seattle's Belltown neighborhood, which is home to the city's famed Space Needle.

Sánchez-Bayo and his co-authors centered their evaluation on bugs in European and North American nations. More than a third of the world's insects are threatened with extinction in the next few decades.

Inside the garage, "Bezos built the first two desks out of sixty dollar blond-wood doors from Home Depot, an endeavor that later carried nearly biblical significance at Amazon, like Noah building the ark", the book reads. He's now the richest person on earth, with a net worth of $132 billion, but back when he started the company he was renting.

West Bellevue is the most expensive neighbourhood in the region, according to the Times - something that surely can't be linked to Amazon's post-garage legacy of contributing to skyrocketing rent and income inequality in Seattle-and the paper estimated that a $422,870 down payment and annual income of $422,870 would be necessary to pick up the house.

The lead photo on the listing does include a note that the home was "The birthplace of Amazon", and Sullivan of course won't be disappointed if the home's history results in a bidding war that escalates the price beyond the listing price. The year he lived there, the county assessor valued the home at $135,000. After Bezos moved out, it was bought in 1998 for $256,541 - or $396,088 in today's dollars.

"We didn't price any of that historical significance into it", Sullivan told the Times.

Magnificent in West Bellevue!

Moreover, the Seattle Times reports that the garage isn't the one where Bezos built two desks out of $60 wooden doors purchased from Home Depot - and toiled for hours building Amazon.
