Damon and his wife, Luciana Barroso, purchased their Los Angeles home in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood and designed by architect Grant Kirkpatrick in 2012 for $15 million. The three-story open concept home was initially designed to reflect the area’s coastal setting with a mix of wood, stone, and glass.
The family has since made many modern updates and have decided to sell, making their primary home their $16 million Brooklyn penthouse they purchased in 2019. By leaving LA, they will lose Ben Affleck as a neighbor, who purchased his Pacific Palisades home in 2018 but gain new neighbors in John Krasinski and Emily Blunt, who purchased a condo in the same Brooklyn building as Damon in 2019. According to the listing, the Los Angeles mansion is a “zen-inspired, architectural masterpiece” and is being sold for $21 million.
The 13,508 square foot home sits on .68 acres of land and has seven bedrooms and ten bathrooms. You will notice the home has many clean lines, neutral colors, greenery in and out, and natural light created by the large windows. The great room creates a unique indoor-outdoor living and dining experience as it has glass walls and opens onto the terrace. The chefs’ kitchen has custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, making it an excellent place for any home chef.
You can find the master bedroom upstairs, creating a little retreat away from the rest of the home. It has its own private patio that overlooks the tree-lined yard, a massage room, dual dressing rooms, and a spa-style bathroom complete with a soaking tub and large shower. Other rooms in the house reflect the same style, creating a peaceful atmosphere for everyone.
The home includes an atrium placed strategically at the center of the home with 35-foot mahogany vaulted ceilings. Other unique characteristics of the home include a game room, furnished gym, media room, and wine storage area with a tasting room.
Outside you will find a yarn that is Hawaiian inspired, creating another calming atmosphere that matches the rest of the home. The tree-lined yard features a large pool and spa, a cascading waterfall, a koi pond, and a large children’s playground. Nearby the pool is a covered lounge area and an al fresco, or outdoor, dining terrace.
