The Los Angeles residence that Academy Award-winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio put up for sale last summer has been relisted with a price snip.
DiCaprio purchased the sensitively renovated 1926-built Tudor from musician Moby in 2018, and listed it last August with a $5.75 million ask. The 4,644 sq. ft. house is currently priced at $4.895 million; DiCaprio handed Moby $4.91 million for the keys, according to public records.
Looking somewhat reticent behind a frame of mature trees, and given focus with a bright red front door, a first impression of the house is of an imperious but inviting destination. A ground floor terrace, decorative half-timbering and a second level veranda decorate its façade.
Inside the home, a series of tasteful revisions buttress the original details nicely, giving the whole a sense of cohesion. Most appealing among the spaces is the living room; its groin vaulting, carved fireplace and blazing white walls and ceilings would make for a peculiarly ethereal effect if not for the mid-toned plank floors.
The kitchen is similarly disarming, with an adjacent dayroom sporting a window seat breakfast nook and French doors that open to a café patio. A covered living space and balcony overlook the pool area.
DiCaprio’s upcoming projects include the Martin Scorsese-directed Western crime drama Killers of the Flower Moon, with Robert De Niro.
