A piece of history from one of the world's biggest companies has been scooped up in short order.
The Bellevue, Washington house where Jeff Bezos founded Amazon has found a buyer.
Take a look inside the house, including the garage where it all began.
After a little over a month, it has found a buyer. Listing agent Lin Shen of Sea to Sky Realty confirmed to Business Insider that the property is now in contract.
The house, in Bellevue, Washington is an instrumental piece of Amazon's history. It was in the garage of that home he was renting at the time that Bezos started Amazon, then an online bookseller, in 1994.
Take a look inside the home where it all began:
Amazon's origins trace back to this unassuming home.
It's 10704 NE 28th Street in Bellevue, Washington. Bezos founded Amazon in 1994, at age 30, in the garage of this home.
Bezos and his now ex-wife, MacKenzie Scott, rented the home after moving to Washington.
They reportedly paid $890 a month in rent, The Wall Street Journal reported in 2011.
Here's the garage where Amazon began.
In fact, the home appealed to Bezos partly because he wanted to be able to brag about building a startup out of a garage, in the Silicon Valley tradition, according to the Journal.
Here's another angle of the garage.
It's unclear if the garage was significantly changed in the renovation, says listing agent Lin Shen of Sea to Sky Realty.
The home has been renovated since Bezos lived there.
It was built in 1954 but renovated in 2001, according to its Zillow listing. It's unclear if the garage was significantly changed in the renovation, says listing agent Shen.
It has 1,540 square feet of living space.
It has three bedrooms...
...and two bathrooms.
There's a granite and maple kitchen.
It also has a sizable great room, and skylights give the home plenty of natural light.
In the backyard, you'll find a large deck.
The home also has a hot tub, according to Zillow.
The home has changed hands several times.
It was sold for $182,000 in 1998; $375,000 in 2005; $620,000 in 2009; and most recently $1.53 million in 2019, according to Zillow. It hit the market with an asking price of about $2.3 million on January 18.
