Good Deal Hunting

24.09.21

One of Hollywood’s most bankable stars and among the highest-grossing actors of all time, Matt Damon’s films are responsible for almost $4 billion in box office receipts. Together with his writing partner and life-long friend, Ben Affleck, Damon won an Academy Award and a Golden Globe for Best Screenplay for Good Will Hunting. As an actor, he took home a Golden Globe for his starring role in The Martian.

His most recent project is the upcoming The Last Duel, which was filmed in France and Ireland during the pandemic. Damon found himself locked down for three months with director Ridley Scott and the rest of the film’s cast and crew in the small Irish town of Dalkey, about 45 minutes away from Dublin. The actor loved it so much that he reportedly considered moving to Ireland. Instead, Damon and his family have taken up residence in their $16.75 million Brooklyn Heights penthouse, at its time of sale the most expensive piece of residential real estate ever sold in Brooklyn.

Bidding farewell to Los Angeles, Damon listed his Zen-inspired Pacific Palisades mansion for sale in January for $21 million. The asking price has now been reduced to $17.9 million. Situated on the same premier street his buddy, Affleck, still calls home, Damon’s 13,508-square-foot residence boasts seven bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, and nearly three-quarters of an acre of lushly landscaped grounds with mature trees, a koi pond, a children’s play area and a resort-style pool and spa. Master-architect Grant Kirkpatrick of KAA Design has used warm woods, natural stone and lots of glass to produce an aesthetic of timeless beauty, while including artful details throughout the spacious mansion. The home’s focal point is its central atrium with 35-foot, vaulted-mahogany ceilings that let in tons of natural light. Open floor plans and disappearing glass walls connect the sprawling living and entertaining areas. A spectacular chef’s kitchen features custom-mahogany cabinetry, Bluestone countertops, and top-of-the-line, stainless-steel appliances by Viking, Miele and Wolf. The luscious master suite includes huge dual walk-in closets, a spa-style bath with a massage room, and opens onto its own private terrace with palm tree and garden views. A game room, bar, office, gym, media room, staff quarters and wine storage and tasting room complete the stunning, gated estate.

Located on the Pacific Coast between Santa Monica and Malibu, Pacific Palisades has become one of Los Angeles’ most sought-after neighborhoods for Hollywood’s power players. Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Billy Crystal, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, John Goodman, Steven Spielberg, Kate Hudson and Diane Keaton are just a few of Matt’s former neighbors. Private and serene, the Damon estate is moments away from the Getty Villa and Will Rogers State Beach and convenient to the world-class shopping, dining and entertainment available in Palisades Village, Brentwood, Santa Monica and The Riviera Country Club.
