Brad Pitt is known for his award-winning performances, romantic entanglements, and an affinity for architecture.
In fact, the actor’s reported love of all things design is evident in his extensive property portfolio. Most recently, he picked up a century-old coastal estate in Carmel, CA, for $40 million.
This jaw-dropping purchase also shows the actor’s talent for finding premium properties.
Over the years, he’s picked up homes in Los Angeles, the south of France, and New Orleans, many of which he still owns. Let’s take a look at these homes.
Pitt just dropped a ton of money to make a move up the coast.
His $40 million off-market purchase on this coveted stretch of California coastline is one of the priciest sales ever for the area, according to the Wall Street Journal. Built in 1918 and known as the D.L. James House, it’s named after the owner who commissioned the home.
The Carmel Highlands locale is on a bluff overlooking the water. Designed by the legendary architecture firm Greene and Greene, the home is constructed from locally sourced granite and sandstone, and it appears to be built into the rock. It features a Mediterranean-style roof and arched windows.
In 1994, the year he starred in “Legends of the Fall” and “Interview With the Vampire,” the actor splurged on a Los Feliz pad for $1.7 million. It represented the first step of an impressive land grab in the trendy neighborhood.
In addition to this five-bedroom, 5,760-square-foot home, Pitt later spent $380,000 and $475,000 for two adjacent one-bedroom abodes in the mid-1990s. In 2003, he dropped one of the neighboring homes for $740,000.
In 2008 and 2009, he dropped $1.28 million and $1.1 million for two more adjacent two-bedroom homes, giving him a contiguous compound.
Costing Pitt nearly $5 million total, the compound now measures almost 2 acres with at least four structures. It reportedly contains a Craftsman main house, pool, tennis court, and skate park.
Around 22 years ago, Pitt married his first wife, Jennifer Aniston, and they picked up a retreat up the coast in Santa Barbara County.
He paid $4 million for the 11.5-acre, oceanfront estate just outside Santa Barbara, according to Architectural Digest. Reports say he continued to use the home during his marriage to his second wife, Angelina Jolie.
South of France
The home collector also owns a French chateau.
Known as Miraval, the 1,200-acre spread was purchased by Pitt in 2008 for an estimated $60 million, according to some reports. In fact, the haute home was the site of his wedding to Jolie in 2014. The villa has become the focal point of legal battles after the couple’s split in 2019.
There are said to be multiple cottages, a recording studio, a chapel, indoor and outdoor pools, a gym and spa, and a screening room. Kid-friendly features include a dirt bike course and a video game room.
The grounds include olive groves, organic vineyards, a private pond, and helipads, Dirt reported. The wines produced are most notably rosé.
After Hurricane Katrina, Pitt picked up a mansion in the French Quarter of New Orleans in 2006 for $3.5 million.
He and Jolie owned the circa 1850 property around the time that he created a foundation to build homes in the city’s devastated Ninth Ward.
The organization, despite facing criticism, reportedly built some 150 homes, including this tiny home.
Pitt wound up selling the six-bedroom home in 2016 for $4.9 million.
The “Ocean’s Eleven” star couldn’t resist buying a midcentury modern beach house in Malibu in 2005. He renovated the five-bedroom vacation pad, which also includes fireplaces, a tennis court, and beach access.
The remodeled residence was sold to serial home flipper Ellen DeGeneres in 2011 for $12 million.
Beverly Hills, CA
While married, Aniston and Pitt purchased a magnificent mansion in Beverly Hills for $12.5 million.
The home was built in 1934 for Oscar winner Fredric March, star of “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” and designed by architect Wallace Neff.
Aniston and Pitt embarked on an extensive remodel. Upgrades included marble flooring in the kitchen, a screening room, and a pub room with wood floors imported from a 200-year-old French chateau, according to the Wall Street Journal.
After the pair split up, they sold the 12,000-square-foot, Normandy-style estate in 2006.
Years later, the posh place returned to the market for as much as $56 million. Eventually, the couple’s former residence sold for $32.5 million in 2020.
