Jeff Bezos and girlfriend are shopping for some of the most expensive mansion in America – WATCH

The richest man in the world is shopping for a love nest in Los Angeles — and he’s not ruling out a nine-figure price tag, The Post has learned.

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Amazon boss Jeff Bezos has been actively shopping for homes in the Beverly Hills and Bel Air neighborhoods in recent weeks with his girlfriend Lauren Sanchez — and some of the mansions they’ve toured have been listed for more than $100 million, sources said.

There are fewer than 10 houses in the Los Angeles area on the market at any given time that fit Bezos, Gitlin said.

One of those he has visited was the 10.1-acre estate at 750 Bel Air Road known as “Chartwell,” which recently sold for $150 million, confirmed Drew Mandile of Sotheby’s International Realty, the broker on the property. “He is always looking,” Mandile said of Bezos. “He is an energetic man who has a large appetite.”

Why We Love It: In the words of the homeowner, this house “epitomizes midcentury modern.” When the owners bought it in 2004, it was in teardown condition—the previous owner had died a few years before.

The Mansion That Inspired ‘Gone With the Wind’ Is Up for Auction

We actually do give a damn about this property.

30 of the most beautiful plant-covered buildings we’ve ever seen

From wisteria to bougainvillea–we love how they add magic to any exterior.

What is it about a plant-covered building that alights our senses and delights us so much? Perhaps it’s the ultimate bridge between natural and man-made beauty, because there’s nothing that delights us more than gazing upon trailing autumn branches over a Brooklyn brownstone or bunches of lavender-toned wisteria drooping over a stern Victorian façade. In fact, the appeal of a photogenic house exterior is so widely shared, it’s begun to irk the residents of one particularly ’grammable Paris street. And it doesn’t stop there.
