Here’s more on the listing, from John L Scott Real Estate:

Magnificent in West Bellevue! This charming Craftsman was rebuilt in 2001 w/ an enormous great room that’s perfect for entertaining! It boasts 13′ vltd pine ceiling & river rock fplc. Fabulous granite & maple kitchen entices the cook. Master suite w/divine tiled shower. Hardwoods, crown mldg, lots of skylights & natural light. Meticulous setting, big party deck w/ hot tub, fenced yard, 10×20 strg shed. Very well cared for! A slice of history-Jeff Bezos started Amazon in the garage in the 1990’s!

It’s seems to be a relative bargain for the neighborhood and given its place in history. The house next door, although much larger, sold for $3.1 million last year. Others sold for anywhere between $1.3 million and $2.6 million.

Amazon was founded in 1994 and, 24 years later, Bezos is now the richest man in the world, with several homes in the U.S.
