Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie sell their 1830s row house in New Orleans


Actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who are in the process of divorcing, have begun to sell off their marital assets. The estranged couple have sold their home in New Orleans’ French Quarter for $4.9 million.

Dating back to the 1830s, the row house had been listed a year ago for as much as $6.5 million. Pitt and Jolie bought the property in 2007, following Hurricane Katrina, for $3.5 million, according to the Associated Press.

The brick traditional-style house has a front balcony and dormer windows that overlook the historic area.


The nearly 7,650 square feet of living space includes scaled formal rooms, an updated kitchen, a laundry room, five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Venetian-plastered walls, custom-designed marble mantles and crown moldings are among the interior details.

A grand staircase and a an elevator connect the three-story home. A guest house and a two-car garage also reside on the 5,920-square-foot lot.

Pitt, 52, became involved in efforts to rebuild New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. He will appear in the upcoming historical drama “Allied” alongside actress Marion Cotillard.

Jolie, 41, in 2004 won the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. This year, she lent her voice to the animated comedy “Kung Fu Panda 3.”
