The way they were (er…lived).
Whether you were shocked, saddened, or apathetic about Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce announcement, there’s no denying that this piece of celebrity gossip has taken over the news cycle. And while the two are currently figuring out who gets custody of their six children, they’ll also have to negotiate who will get the many homes they purchased throughout their 12-year relationship (two of which were spent as a married couple). The globe-trotting couple and their large brood had homes in Los Angeles, the French countryside, New York City, and New Orleans. Here, we take a look at their real estate portfolio.
In Los Angeles, the family live in a Hollywood compound that Pitt (who’s reportedly a big fan of architecture) had owned since the 90s. Over the years, he bought the surrounding properties so that ultimately, the compound was comprised of five different estates. But that’s not the only house they own in California—they also call an 11.5-acre Santa Barbara ranch home.
The couple owned two homes in New Orleans, Louisiana, as well. One was a six-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bathroom house purchased in 2006 for $3.5 million. The second one (pictured below) was 1830s mansion in the French Quarter, across the street from actor Matthew McConaughey’s house. In 2015, they listed the five-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom house for $6.5 million.
In New York City, the family’s home base was a luxury apartment in the Waldorf-Astoria Towers (pictured below). It’s connected to the famed Waldorf-Astoria hotel.
And of course, we can’t forget to mention Chateau Miraval (pictured below), the couple’s villa in the French countryside, where they got married in 2014. Purchased in 2012 for an estimated $60 million, the property sits on 1,200 acres and has 35 bedrooms. It’s also where they produce their award-winning Chateau Miraval Rose.
