Brad Pitt buys the most expensive house ever sold in Carmel

Brad Pitt bought the D.L. James House, the most expensive house ever sold in Carmel, California, for $40 million. Brad Pitt has bought himself a historic $40 million bachelor pad on the cliffs of Carmel, California.

The actor recently purchased the D.L. James House, built in 1918 and located on just over 10,000 square meters in the Carmel Highlands along California's central coast, according to The Wall Street Journal. The nearly 300 square meter mansion was never openly offered for sale and was sold off the market at a purchase price which local agents say makes it the most expensive home ever sold in the Carmel area.

Before Pitt bought the house, it was owned by Searock, an LLC formed by Chicago financier Joe Ritchie, who died earlier this year, and his wife, Sharon Ritchie. The couple had purchased the property in 1999 for $4.5 million. The D.L James House was designed by prominent early 20th century architect Charles Sumner Greene, known for pioneering the American Arts and Crafts movement. The house was built from locally quarried sandstone and granite, with a Mediterranean-style tiled roof, arched windows, and sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean. It owes its name to its first owner, the writer Daniel Lewis James, who published his works under the pseudonym of Danny Santiago.

"The most creative and ambitious work of Charles Greene's late career"

In the book Greene & Greene: Architecture as a Fine Art, author Randell L. Makinson describes the building as "the most creative and ambitious work of Charles Greene's late career and the most significant structure in Apart from the wooden bungalows of the Greenes, the James house is a unique monument in this country. The stone structure appears to have grown from its location atop the rocky cliffs south of Carmel. In places it is difficult to determine where nature's rock stopped and man's masonry genius began. »

In addition to expanding his real estate portfolio, Brad Pitt has been promoting his new movie Bullet Train and trying to spend all his free time with his six children, according to a source close to the actor who recently confided in People. Brad has dinner with his youngest kids when they're all in LA, because the kids are older and have their own lives and their own friends. “And despite the ongoing divorce proceedings with his ex-wife Angelina Jolie, the indiscreet added: “Brad has his films, he has Miraval and he has his other passions. He loves architecture, he loves creativity. He is living his best life considering the circumstances.»
