Be­zos has gone shop­ping on the West­side, buy­ing a home for $12.9 mil­lion in a deal com­pleted off­mar­ket.

Never pub­licly listed for sale, the 1956-built house sits on a hal­facre lot that backs up to the Span­ish-style es­tate that Be­zos bought in 2007 for $24.45 mil­lion.

In other words, it’s a real-world fire­wall for the multi­bil­lion­aire.

De­tails are few and far be­tween, but tax records show that the home has 4,586 square feet of in­te­rior space on one level. For­mal liv­ing and din­ing rooms, four bed­rooms and six full bath­rooms are among the liv­ing spa­ces. There are two fire­places.

Ma­ture trees, pa­tio space and a swim­ming pool fill the backyard. A mo­tor court with two gated en­trances marks the en­trance to the prop­erty. Com­bined with the neigh­bor­ing es­tate, the two prop­er­ties to­tal about 2.5 acres.

Be­zos, 53, founded Ama­zon.com in 1994 and owns nearly 81 mil­lion shares in the com­pany. With a net worth of about $85 bil­lion, he is among the rich­est peo­ple in the world.
