“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.
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.
