Leonardo DiCaprio is unloading several pieces of his Los Angeles real estate portfolio, one of which is very much in keeping with his image as one of Hollywood’s tenured playboys, while the other reveals a more surprising, suburban side to the Oscar-winning actor.
DiCaprio just listed a four-bedroom, three-bathroom home in Studio City that he quietly has owned since 2014. This $2.4 million listing comes just a week after the star put his Malibu spread, which is located on the exclusive stretch of coast called Carbon Beach, on the market for $10.9 million.
Built in 1937, the 3,400-square-foot Studio City ranch home sits on a 15,000-square-foot lot in Colfax Meadows. It has an expansive front yard, verdant landscaping, a pool and an interior open-floor plan with French doors, “a palette of soothing neutrals,” high ceilings and a kitchen outfitted with Viking appliances.
The Malibu home is a different story. The 1,765-square-foot two-story residence has a gated courtyard, a garage, wood floors and glass sliding doors that lead to a deck with a Jacuzzi, panoramic views and a private stairway to the beach where paparazzi regularly sneak up to snap shots of starlets and industry titans. According to previous reports, the spread periodically has been leased for as much as $50,000 a month. DiCaprio bought the house in 1998 for $1.6 million.
The listing agent on the Malibu home is Partners Trust’s Katie Bentzen. The listing agent for the Studio City home is Michael Okun of Sotheby's International.
