Cambridge native Matt Damon is about to become a New Yorker.
Damon and his wife, Luciana Barroso, are selling their seven-bedroom, 10-bathroom mansion in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles at an asking price of $21 million.
Listing agent Eric Haskell of The Agency told The Wall Street Journal that the couple is selling the house because they plan to make New York City their primary home. The couple purchased a $16 million Brooklyn penthouse in 2019.
Described as a “Zen-inspired, architectural masterpiece” in its listing, the 13,508-square-foot mansion features modern touches including an atrium with 35-foot mahogany vaulted ceilings; a chef’s kitchen with custom cabinetry, Bluestone countertops and stainless-steel appliances; and a great room built with glass walls to create an indoor-outdoor living and dining experience.
Elsewhere in the home, amenities include a game room, bar, gym, media room, and wine storage and tasting room. The primary bedroom suite, meanwhile, has a private terrace, dual dressing rooms, a massage room, and a spa-style bath with soaking tub and expansive shower.
Outside, the 0.68-acre estate has a large pool and spa, a cascading waterfall, a koi pond, an expansive children’s play area, and a Hawaiian-inspired Lanai featuring a covered lounge and alfresco dining terrace.
“It’s like a tropical retreat,” Mr. Haskell told WSJ. “You don’t feel like you’re in Southern California anymore.”
Besides losing proximity to Hollywood with the move, Damon and Barroso will also be leaving behind a good friend: the Pacific Palisades neighborhood is also home to Ben Affleck, who purchased a $19.25 million mansion there in 2018.
Meanwhile, Damon and Barroso’s new neighbors will be fellow Massachusetts actor John Krasinski and his wife, Emily Blunt, who purchased an $11 million condo in the same Brooklyn building in 2019.
