Brad Pitt sells longtime LA house for $39M
By Hannah Frishberg,
A certain Hollywood heartthrob has successfully offloaded the California compound — where he and Angeline Jolie raised their children — for $39 million.
Brad Pitt, 59, quietly began looking for a buyer in January after listing this LA lair for sale off-market, meaning it was never publicly for sale — and there are no listing images showing the property’s details.
The “Bullet Train” actor purchased the home in Los Feliz from none other than Elvira , the actress otherwise known as Cassandra Peterson, in 1994.
He paid the Mistress of the Dark just $1.7 million for the mansion at the time, and has subsequently added on multiple neighboring lots.
When he started his search for a new owner this winter, he sought approximately $40 million for the mega-mansion it had become, The Post reported at the time.
The original plot he got off Peterson dates to 1910, when it was constructed by an oil baron.
It subsequently housed Jimi Hendrix when he wrote the song “May This Be Love” within the 6,700-square-foot home, according to the outlet.
During Pitt’s time on the property, he and his ex-wife Jolie, 47 reared their six-kid brood — Maddox, 21, Pax, 19, Zahara, 18, Shiloh, 16, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 14 — in addition to extensively expanding the space.
The new owner gets not only the oil baron’s original abode, but also 1.9 acres including a skating rink, a tennis court, a swimming pool, an enormous Koi pond, a skate park, a motorcycle garage, a ballroom and a movie theater.
The palatial estate is not far from the home Jolie bought for $24.95 million in 2017, following the pair’s 2016 split.
“I wanted it to be close to their dad, who is only 5 minutes away,” the “Maleficent” actress once told British Vogue of the proximity to her ex-husband, with whom she’s been locked in a harrowing divorce battle over assets and children since their split.
