  • Home where Jeff Bezos launched Amazon for sale

Amazon was started from here but only for a few months did it operate out of this house's garage. It also states that this is a chance to buy a "piece of history".

The garage attached to the three-bedroom, 1.75-bath craftsman on Northeast 28th Street was the original Amazon HQ. The official listing of the house is marketing the house as "the birth place of Amazon".

The bummer for those that would be interested in buying the house as a (very expensive) bit of tech memorabilia is that the garage that Bezos worked in has been renovated since Bezos's time there and likely doesn't resemble what it looked like back when it was Amazon's first headquarters. The garage was also remodeled, so the interiors likely no longer resemble the residence when Bezos lived there. It does retain some of his additions, however, like a large mailbox that was meant to receive catalogs. After Bezos moved out, it was bought in 1998 for $256,541 - or $396,088 in today's dollars. More like in the garage of the house but it's the same location.

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 said: 'And they said, "Oh by the way, I don't know if this would matter at all, but Jeff Bezos used to live here and he started Amazon in the garage".

As tech journalists in the Seattle region, we've been keeping tabs on this house for years, given the historical significance, and we often cite it as inspiration for startups. Zillow estimates the house where Amazon was founded would rent now for $4,550 a month. The year he lived there, the county assessor valued the home at $2,000. In 2009, the house was sold again for $620,000.

A photo from the real estate listing for the home at 10704 N.E. 28th St.in Bellevue, Wash., comes with an annotation referencing the historical significance.

Former homes of famous people don't always get marketed as such - sometimes it's not clear from the listing that it's anything more than a regular old house. According to a report by Seattle Times, anyone looking to buy the house will require to fork out $300,000 as down payment.

But Mr Sullivan said the current owners only mentioned the connection in passing when they were discussing the sale.

While the Times reported that Amazon was based out of said garage only briefly, Bezos built two desks out of cheap Home Depot doors and two-by-fours there for their second office, which CNBC reported was on the same block as a pawn shop, heroin-needle exchange, and a "porno parlor".
