More than a year after announcing her split from husband Brad Pitt, actress and humanitarian Angelina Jolie has purchased the former home of filmmaker Cecil B. DeMille for the sale price of $24.5 million.
Built more than a century ago, this six-bedroom, ten-bath mansion and sprawling two-acre estate, which was home to DeMille for four decades, offers a plethora of amenities that Jolie and her children will surely enjoy, including lush green exterior gardens, several outdoor sitting areas and an in-ground pool. The home also offers a detached guest house, which shares in the breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean and the L.A. city lights below.
The roughly 11,000 square foot interior of the home has been fully restored recently, including an updated chef’s kitchen with a spacious center island, and a wood-paneled dining room. The home also features beautiful molding throughout, as well as arched doors and four fireplaces.
Situated in the Laughlin Park area of Los Feliz, Jolie’s new abode will also provide her with privacy and security, along with plenty of space for both residents and guests.
Listed for sale in March of this year, the estate was owned and maintained by Cecil DeMille’s family for more than 30 years after his passing in 1988.
