Brad Pitt has made the home he purchased in April 2023 by adding his personal touched
Brad Pitt has added some personal touches to his luxury $8.3million mansion, just as he is about to resolve the years-long dispute over ownership of winery Miraval with Angelina Jolie.
Exclusive DailyMail.com aerial photos show the roof of Pitt’s Los Feliz home decked out with solar paneling and his pool area complete with colorful cushions, patterned rugs and loads of seating and tables for guests.
The Hollywood superstar, a keen architecture enthusiast, purchased the property in April 2023 from oil heiress Aileen Getty, who in turn bought his previous residence in the same area for $33million.
The health-conscious dad-of-six has also been making use of his built-in sauna, which is tucked away inside a hut at the side of the house. A massage table could be seen set up and ready with a white towel.
It’s clear he has been entertaining guests at the property as there are several sun loungers, a dining table and a large sofa that’s right above the garage.
The art buff has also added a round, orange and yellow sculpture on an exterior wall.
In 2022, Pitt had put down $40million on another mansion in Carmel, California, and he is now dividing his time between that property and this L-shaped, 3-bedroom abode – named The Steel House.

DailyMail.com previously revealed that in the last few years he’s been busy scooping up luxury homes and commercial properties, having been involved in realtor deals worth $72million.
Pitt purchased three studios from his friend, British sculptor Thomas Houseago, in LA’s Frogtown neighborhood, a former rundown industrial zone now popular with the arts community and considered one of the city’s hippest areas.
In April 2022, he paid Houseago’s firm Clearwater Real Properties LLC $4,095,000 for side-by-side parcels. It’s where Pitt was pictured coming and going immediately after the Jolie split in September 2016 when he’d taken up sculpting.
In March 2021, Pitt bought another studio from Houseago for $2,933,500 directly opposite the other two. This one is a vintage manufacturing building and Pitt took out a $2million mortgage with City National Bank to finance the deal.
In July 2022, Pitt went big in the residential housing market spending $40million on American author D.L James’ former home, known as ‘Seaward’, in Carmel, California. He purchased that outright with no mortgage.

Brad’s compound made up of five houses, which he began buying up in 1994. He sold it in 2023 for $33million to oil heiress Aileen Getty
After his break up with Angelina Jolie, he remained in their extensive compound in Los Feliz, where he and Jolie had raised their six kids, as he owned the place outright.
He’d purchased the main 5,338 square foot manor for $1.7million in 1994 and over the next 22 years – 12 of which he spent with Jolie – the estate grew to encompass five adjoining properties.
The location became a private fortress, with a skate park, secret cave and three swimming pools for the kids.
He also took the family’s Santa Barbara oceanfront home, which he purchased for $4million in 2000, and is now said to be worth $20million.
The 15-acre beach abode, located near to Gaviota State Park, was used by the former couple ‘as a vacation retreat for themselves and the kids, horseback riding and enjoying time out on the beach.’
Brad and Angie jointly owned French vineyard Miraval, a 35-room, 1,000-acre estate which they purchased for $60million in 2011, and is now at the center a bitter legal battle between them
Brad Pitt’s lawyers have accused Angelina Jolie of deliberately depriving him of complete ownership and ‘forcing a stranger into [his] family home’ by selling her share to a Russian businessman
The pair also jointly owned French vineyard Miraval, a 35-room, 1,000-acre estate which they purchased for $60 million in 2011, and is now at the center of yet another bitter legal battle between them.
The former couple had a ‘mutual and binding commitment’ to the $160 million Chateau Miraval business and both agreed never to sell their share without the other’s permission.
But a stunned Pitt discovered his ex-wife had ‘secretly’ sold her 50 percent stake to billionaire Russian oligarch Yuri Shelfer when a 2021 press release announced that he had new business partners, according to the actor’s lawyers.
In her counterclaim, Jolie accused Pitt of trying to force her into selling to his company, Mondo Bongo, on ‘unreasonable terms’ and spreading lies that Shefler was ‘an ally of Vladimir Putin.’
She also alleged that Pitt hid assets and squandered the chateau’s funds on vanity projects, including a swimming pool and an ornate staircase that was rebuilt four times.
It’s been reported that Pitt has seized back control of the French vineyard in the latest twist in the so-called ‘War of the Rosés’.
This week a court in Luxembourg has stripped Mr Shefler’s company of a portion of shares originally gifted to Ms Jolie by Pitt – putting him back in the driving seat.
