'Brad Pitt ditches $40M love nest post-Jolie split': Inside their LA real estate saga
Brad Pitt lists his $40M LA home amid bitter divorce with Angelina Jolie. Meanwhile, Jolie's $25M mansion keeps kids close to Pitt.
From Love Nest to Listed: Brad Pitt's Los Feliz Palace Goes Public!
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been the poster children for Hollywood glamour, but post-split, their real estate moves make as many headlines as their films. Amid the turmoil of their very public divorce, Pitt has opted to shake things up in the property domain, and it's grander than any movie set.
Brad Bids Adieu to $40M Mansion
He's a leading man in Hollywood, but even Brad seems to be looking for a scene change. As reported by People, Brad has listed his massive Los Feliz estate for a whopping $40 million. The house, once a humble abode of 'Elvira, Mistress of the Dark' star Cassandra Peterson, was acquired by Pitt in '94 for $1.7 million. Over the years, the 'Babylon' actor expanded this empire to a stunning 1.9 acres, sprinkled with luxe additions like a tennis court and skating rink. And to think, this sprawling paradise was once the haven for Brangelina and their brood.
Angelina's Post-Split Power Move
Not to be outdone, Angelina has her own slice of luxury in the same neighborhood. The $25 million property, previously owned by legendary filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille, isn't just about luxury, though. Angelina’s move had the children at heart. "I wanted it to be close to their dad, who is only five minutes away," Jolie spilled to British Vogue. With panoramic vistas spanning from the Griffith Observatory to the Pacific, it's both a haven for kids and a statement of style. Angelina's personal touch? "Lots of pathways and places to walk and think."
Real Estate Reflections of a Hollywood Saga
Divorce is messy. When it involves Hollywood biggies like Brad and Angelina, it's magnified for the world to dissect. Their tumultuous journey, from being declared legally single in 2019 to a still-ongoing custody battle, plays out not just in courtrooms, but in the very homes they choose. And while they hash out financials and custody, one thing is certain: Both are ensuring their kids remain the top priority, whether through staying nearby or offering them sprawling spaces to grow.
In the ever-unfolding Brangelina saga, their LA properties have emerged as silent protagonists. While the future remains uncertain, their past – steeped in love, legacy, and Los Feliz – remains an open book, page by page, brick by brick.
