“Don’t Look Up” now, but Leo DiCaprio is tweaking his extensive real estate portfolio yet again! Barely three months ago, the Oscar-winning actor — currently appearing with Jennifer Lawrence in a satiric film about a pair of astronomers who try to warn world leaders about an asteroid set to destroy Earth, due out on Netflix later this month — paid a cool $13.8 million for an oceanfront Malibu retreat, while simultaneously hoisting his home atop exclusive Carbon Beach onto the market for $10 million.
The 47-year-old “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood” star also owns a century-old English Tudor Revival home in Los Feliz, plus a Spanish Colonial-style mansion elsewhere in Los Feliz.
Now DiCaprio’s turning his attention toward Beverly Hills, where he just purchased a 1930s estate property for $9.9 million. Originally listed for $10.2 million, he scored a slight discount on the five-bedroom, six-bath spread, though the sale price is still far more than the $6.1 million the sellers paid for the place in 2016. But the house has since undergone a meticulously trendy restoration, replete with chevron and white oak floors, designer light fixtures and attractive steel-case doors offering up an ideal indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
Tucked away behind walls and gates, on a little over a quarter-acre of land in the Beverly Hills Flats, the traditional structure greets with a formal entry displaying a curved spiral staircase. Once inside, 5,000 square feet of living space is marked by a gray wood-paneled family room with built-in bookshelves, plus an open-concept entertainment area sporting a snazzy brass wet bar and doors that open to the backyard.
Other highlights include a gourmet kitchen outfitted with high-end stainless appliances, a beverage center and an eat-in island — all accented by black granite and white Carrara marble. Floor-to-ceiling French doors in the adjacent breakfast nook spill out to an al fresco dining terrace.
There are three upstairs bedroom suites, including a master retreat situated under a cathedral ceiling, and boasting a handy mini-bar, luxe marble bath with an oval soaking tub and separate lounge that spills out to a balcony overlooking the outdoors, where the lush grounds are dotted by mature olive trees. There’s also a patio holding a firepit, large rectangular pool and flat grassy yard, along with a detached one-car garage connected to a guesthouse with its own patio ideal for outdoor grilling and dining.
Aside from his newest digs, and those Los Feliz and Malibu properties — which also include an all-but-vacant $23 million parcel of land atop Paradise Cove — DiCaprio also owns a midcentury modern Palm Springs mansion, several fancy condos in New York City and a private island off the coast of Belize. His main residence, however, remains a three-house, four-parcel compound in the Bird Streets neighborhood of Los Angeles, replete with jetliner views of the entire city skyline to the Pacific Ocean.
The Beverly Hills listing was held by Randy Fred and Rana Desar of Rodeo Realty; DeCaprio was repped by Brett Lawyer of Hilton & Hyland.
