Brad Pitt Acquires Expensive Bachelor Pad in Carmel
Brad Pitt, formerly married to American Actress Angelina Jolie, recently acquired a bachelor pad in Carmel, California. Founded in 1902, Carmel or Carmel-by-the-sea, is a city in Monterey County in California, USA. The film producer acknowledged the purchase of the property in an interview with Extra during the Hollywood Premiere of Bullet Train.
The award-winning actor went on to give more details on the reason he acquired his new real estate. He talked about how being a bachelor influenced his reasons for buying the bachelor pad. Brad also revealed that he has been in love with Carmel-by-the-sea since the ’90s. According to Brad, the opportunity was irresistible, so he just had to give in. In his words:
“I guess I am [a bachelor],” Pitt stated. “It is a pad. Why not…? It’s a place I have been in love with since the ’90s and it was a lovely owner… The opportunity came up, and I couldn’t pass it up.”
About Brad Pitt’s New Property
The bachelor pad acquired by Brad Pitt cost a whopping $40 million. Looking at the features of the property, one may not consider the purchase exorbitant. Given that Brad is already in love with the area is a major reason for the acquisition.
His bachelor pad is named after the American writer, D.L. James, and it’s perched on the seaside bluff. The historic property was commissioned by the author far back in 1918. The star’s purchase is record-breaking by being one of the most expensive real estate deals in Carmel.
Betty White, the Golden Girls icon, used to reside in the area before she passed on. Her property sold in April for $2.825 million above the asking price of $7.95 million. Brad Pitt’s new bachelor pad is built with local sandstone and granite, and the structure blends with the landscape. According to Gamble House, local flora and fauna, including the incorporation of gulls, seaweed, and seashells, have been carefully carved into marble around the home.
