The Washington mansion of Jeff Bezos after $ 23 million is nearing completion after three years of construction.
The Amazon supremo visited the site earlier this month to see the final stages of the construction of its luxury home, which will have 11 bedrooms and 25 bathrooms.
The house was initially intended to be completed by August, but the work is still ongoing and even the neighboring diplomats have not received an update.
Construction workers said that Bezos had demanded that parts of the project & # 39; immediately & # 39; were ready and wanted things & # 39; fast, fast, fast! & # 39 ;, Washingtonian reported.
& # 39; You know – like Amazon. He wants first-class service in his own home, & an employee said.

Owner: Jeff Bezos, CEO of Amazon, pictured on the right with his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez at the tennis final in Wimbledon in July this year, bought the property in 2016
Allegedly Bezos arrived at the construction site earlier this month during a visit to the former textile museum in Washington.
Insiders say that the owner of Amazon and Washington Post has been there at least four times since he bought the property for $ 23 million in 2016.
During the construction work, two adjoining townhouses will be converted into one family in a renovation that is said to cost another $ 12 million.
The work makes the property Washington's largest home, with five living rooms, two kitchens and two libraries.
One person described the backyard designs as & # 39; beautiful, just amazing & # 39; while another said the house & # 39; beautiful & # 39; used to be.
Permits have also been approved for a range of indoor installations, including just over 1,000 lighting fixtures.

A construction expert told Washingtonian that the project & # 39; in the home port & # 39; seemed to be.
By the time builders started on lights and bathroom accessories, they would complete & # 39; third base & he said.
Floor plans for the property include a media room with & # 39; layered seats & # 39; and a shaft for an elevator.
Bezos will use the property as an east coast base to deal with homes in California, the state of Washington, Texas, and New York.
Living in the rich Kalorama district of Washington, Bezos will have neighbors, including former President Barack Obama and the Trump-Kushner family.

The area has a long history as the home of government officials, Supreme Court judges, finance minister and other powerful government and business figures.
One of the two buildings was home to the Textile Museum until 2013, when it was moved to George Washington University.
Both mansions, known as the pope and timber buildings, are in the national register of historic places.
Bezos' house is next to the Woodrow Wilson House, where the 28th President of America lived in the last years of his life after he left office in 1921.
A number of embassies are nearby, including the diplomatic missions of Turkey, Japan and the Republic of Ireland.
However, even diplomatic personnel have not received any updated planning for construction work, it is claimed.
