Actor Matt Damon is listing his Zen-inspired home in the Pacific Palisades area of Los Angeles for $21 million.
According to listing agent Eric Haskell of The Agency, Mr. Damon is selling because he and his family recently decided to make New York City their primary home. In 2017, The Wall Street Journal reported that Mr. Damon was buying a roughly $16 million Brooklyn Heights penthouse at a condominium project known as the Standish.
“They really love it there, even with everything going on with Covid,” Mr. Haskell said.
The Pacific Palisades house has a mix of warm wood and stone and would not look out of place in Maui. “It’s like a tropical retreat,” Mr. Haskell said. “You don’t feel like you’re in Southern California anymore.”
The roughly 13,500-square-foot, seven-bedroom home has a central atrium with a 35-foot vaulted mahogany ceiling and an open-plan living and dining room with walls of glass and high clerestory windows. Amenities include a game room, a bar, an office, a gym, a screening room and a wine storage and tasting room, the listing shows.
