Curbed LA called it back in April of last year when it was just a rumor, but now the LA Times confirms that Matt Damon purchased a home in Pacific Palisades, California for $15 million last year. The seven-bedroom home was built in 2004 and sits on a prime 29,000 square foot lot.
Inside the home, dramatic 35 ft mahogany vaulted ceilings provide an airy feel. Disappearing walls of glass and an open floor plan add to the feeling of casual elegance with an emphasis on indoor/outdoor living. There are three levels connected by an open atrium and a floating stairway. There are a total of four family bedrooms , including a private master suite. Other features include a guest suite, office, a gym ready for Hollywood-style workouts, two maids rooms, and a five-car garage. The home was built to house a modern family and a former listing quotes architect, Grant Kirkpatrick of KAA design, who described it as “a space where a family’s memories are born.”
Damon’s hometown buddy Ben Affleck lives nearby and US Magazine spotted Ben and wife Jennifer Garner headed to a pool party at Damon’s home last summer.
