Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt Sell New Orleans Home for $4.9 Million Amid Divorce
The 7,645 square foot property was bought up for $4.9 million, according to documents filed with the Land Records Division of the Orleans Parish Clerk of Court’s Office via The Hollywood Reporter on Friday.
The former couple first listed their French Quarter real estate for $6.5 million in May 2015. At the time, a rep for Jolie and Pitt told PEOPLE they were selling it in order to look for something “more off the beaten path.”
Jolie, 41, and Pitt, 52, purchased the 1830s-era mansion for $3.5 million in later 2006 after Hurricane Katrina. Following the natural disaster, the actor created the Make It Right Foundation to foster new housing developments in the Lower 9th Ward neighborhood.
The three-story home features five bedrooms, three bathrooms and two half-baths with Venetian plastered walls, marble mantles and fireplaces, crown moldings, a chef’s gourmet kitchen, a grand spiral staircase and an elevator. In addition there is a separate two-story guesthouse.
On Sept. 19, Jolie filed for divorce from Pitt in a Los Angeles court, stating the date of separation as Sept. 15. The former couple had been together since 2004 and are parents to six children: Maddox, 15, Pax, 12, Zahara, 11, Shiloh, 10, and 8-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne.
