Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s Former New Orleans Home Up for Auction

A French Quarter residence in New Orleans, once owned by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, will be up for auction next month. The bidding for this historic property will start at $1 million on December 11, according to a listing on Interluxe, a luxury real estate platform. The property was last listed for $5.35 million.

History of the French Quarter Property

Jolie and Pitt purchased the three-story property in 2007 for $3.5 million. At that time, the couple established the Make It Right Foundation to develop new housing in the flooded Lower 9th Ward following Hurricane Katrina. However, residents later won a $20.5 million lawsuit against the high-profile foundation, alleging that the houses were built with defective materials that led to decayed and unsafe structures. Make It Right has yet to pay residents the damages they were awarded.

The French Quarter property, located at 521 Governor Nicholls Street, was sold by Jolie and Pitt in 2016 for $4.9 million. The 1830s-era home has changed ownership several times since then, with previous owners including Paul Allen, the late co-founder of Microsoft. Interluxe also reveals that the property was once the location of recording engineer Cosimo Matassa’s studio. The home is the winner of the 2023 Downtown Dwellings National HGTV Ultimate House Hunt.

Property Features

The historic home features marble fireplaces, Venetian plaster walls, a three-story guest house, and both private and street-side balconies. This unique property offers potential buyers a rare opportunity to own a piece of New Orleans history.
