Without so much as a press release or tweet, Brad Pitt has put his Malibu home on the market for a mind boggling $13.75 million dollars. The estate is perched on a bluff, overlooking the Pacific Ocean and was purchased in 2005 when Brad had just divorced Jennifer Anniston but before he got together with Angelina Jolie. The estate features a glass walled post-modern contemporary house, complete with a swimming pool and tennis court and celebrity neighbors include super model Cindy Crawford and top actor Leonardo DiCaprio. Pitt initially listed this four-bedroom estate for $18 million in February 2009.When Brad first bought the property back in 2005 it was valued at $8 million but since then he has made some innovations and additions that has increased its value on the market. The inclusion of a heated lap pool and a tennis court saw the price rocket to $11.3 million after six years, despite other properties in that area going down in price. In spite of this increase, when the property was revalued in 2009 at $18 million, when it actually entered the real estate market the price was slashed to $13.45 million.
As for particulars, the Malibu estate has 1.26 acres of prime Encinal Bluff land in Malibu, California, and the house measures 4,088 square feet. Built originally in 1962 and sitting behind private gates, its new features now include walls of glass open to sweeping ocean views, three fireplaces, a walk-in freezer, and dark bamboo floors. Access to the sandy beach cove is via a direct path and there is also planning and coastal approval for a proposed second story designed by Chris Sorensen, an architect who specializes in environmentally friendly design. In addition to the pool and tennis court outside, a covered porch and open patio look out on to the coast line, according to the listing and of course, there is a state-of-the-art security system (to keep all your fans out!)
