The Oscar-winning actor, who will leave Los Angeles, separates from his luxurious house acquired more than thirty years ago.


Brad Pitt is packing up.

After almost thirty years spent in his residence in the Los Feliz district of Los Angeles, the actor leaves for new horizons… and puts his house up for sale.

To afford it, you will have to pay 39 million dollars (36 million euros).

The actor had bought it in 1994 from actress Cassandra Peterson, famous for the title role of the saga "Elvira, mistress of darkness", for a much less substantial sum: 1.7 million dollars (1.6 million euros).

The property has increased in value over the years and renovations.

During a first sale last January, the asking price was even 45 million dollars (41 million euros).

The amount finally fell, without clear reasons being given.

Happy in “Los Feliz”

Photos of the vast Los Feliz villa are rare.

Nevertheless, emerging from the 620 square meters of wooded land, we can distinguish a main dwelling with a gray roof.

Rich in brick fireplaces, it has 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms.

A second brick house and 4 guest residences complete the property.

There is also a skatepark, a ballroom, a cinema, two swimming pools, a jacuzzi, a pond...

The building was renovated by a team of architects and designers.

The property, surrounded by lush nature, was built in 1910 by an oil baron.

New start

In thirty years, “Los Feliz” will have witnessed the milestones in the life of Brad Pitt.

Starting with his story with Angelina Jolie, who lived there with him and their 6 children until 2016, the year of their separation.

At almost 60 years old, the actor is preparing to leave Los Angeles to settle in Carmel Highlands.

A small town in northern California in which he acquired, in July 2022, the “DL James House”.

Perched atop a cliff and overlooking the ocean, the house is the most expensive in all of Carmel - $40 million (€37 million).

LISTEN TO THE PODCAST

No one knows for now if the move was motivated by the new "tax on mansions" which will come into effect on April 1 in Los Angeles.

From now on, all owners wishing to sell their property will have to pay a tax of 5.5% if it exceeds 10 million dollars (9.2 million euros).

If this measure aims to finance public housing and fight against the homeless crisis which continues to worsen in the city, many personalities are preparing to leave the City of Angels.
