The breakup of one of Hollywood’s biggest couples became a little more real this week: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie finally sold their home in New Orleans’s historic French Quarter. Despite the impressive price of $4.9 million, it was considerably less than their original $6.5 million ask for the three-story row house when they listed it almost a year and a half ago. According to listing agent Nina Killeen, however, Pitt and Jolie are “happy with the outcome.”
The duo first purchased the house in 2009 for $3.5 million—which means they still made a profit—when Pitt began spending more and time in New Orleans as part of his efforts to help the city rebuild after Hurricane Katrina. Constructed in the 1830s, it features a main house with four bedrooms and four bathrooms, as well as a guesthouse with an extra bedroom. Considering the Jolie-Pitts were at one point a family of eight, we’re having visions of cozy slumber parties between the couple’s six children, away from the hustle and bustle of the raucous streets below.
Other features worthy of the price tag include a majestic spiral staircase, but if guests are too tired to walk, they can always opt for the home’s built-in elevator. There’s a front balcony—from which Pitt once threw a drink to Matthew McConaughey on the street—that overlooks the city’s historic French Quarter, as well as a modern kitchen and a two-car garage. No word yet on who purchased the home.
