Back when Brangelina were still together, the family of 8 frequently traveled the world as mom and dad filmed movies and made humanitarian trips. In 2009, Brad Pitt and the six children settled in Long Island, NY, giving Angelina the chance to film “Salt.” Like any large family, they opted to stay in a rental house. Unlike any other large family, their rental house was not only worth more than $50 million, but it was referred to as “a total fantasy home” by local real estate agents.
Recently the epic estate hit the real estate market, giving you the chance to buy the family’s former vacation home, at least if you can handle the $55 million asking price. So, what will all that money get you? Here are 20 pictures of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s former $55 million vacation home. Before we get to the pictures, here’s what you need to know about the house.
All about the House
Built in 1987, the Tudor-style mansion (known as “Sassafras”) sits along the Long Island Sound on just over 47 acres of land in Lloyd Harbor, NY. The 20,000 sq. ft. main house boasts 25 rooms including 8 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, 4 ½ baths, and a basement complete with a barbershop, spa, hot tub, plunge pool, and fallout shelter. The property also includes an additional 2 guesthouses with 5,500 sq. ft. each and a log cabin that is used as a “Tea House.”
Outside, the property includes an 8-car detached garage, lush gardens, a tennis court, an in-ground pool, a beach cabana with full kitchen, and a private beach with a pier on a cove referred to as The Sand Hole. According to the official listing, Sassafras is “a gem in the Gold Coast’s crown.” As an added bonus, 2 helipads make getting to the estate easy. Currently owned by Laval Properties Corp., the house was designed to pay homage to Sir Edwin Lutyens, a well-known British architect.
The property is definitely spectacular, but the house is probably not what you would expect Brad and Angelina to choose, especially when you consider how young their children were at the time. (Maddox, the oldest was 8, while the twins, Vivienne and Knox, had just turned a year old.) Now, let’s get started.
