Melinda Gates bought a $1.2 million cottage in Seattle’s North Broadway neighborhood three weeks before she and Bill Gates filed for divorce.
She bought the four-bedroom, two-bathroom home in early April, according to a deed seen by Insider.
The Gates announced they were divorcing on Monday after 27 years of marriage.
“After a great deal of thought and a lot of work on our relationship, we have made the decision to end our marriage,” they said in a statement. “Over the last 27 years, we have raised three incredible children and built a foundation that works all over the world to enable all people to lead healthy, productive lives.”
