  • The 59-year-old Oscar winner originally purchased the oceanfront estate for $4M in 2000 although estimates today put it closer to $20M
  • The property – located nine miles west of Santa Barbara – includes meticulously-planted vegetation which create colorful patterns on the landscape
  • Brad and his estranged second wife Angelina Jolie used the Goleta house ‘as a vacation retreat for themselves and the kids, horseback riding and enjoying time out on the beach’



Brad Pitt puts his passion for architecture and landscaping on full display at his 15-acre oceanfront getaway in Goleta, CA where meticulously-planted vegetation create colorful patterns beside the beach.

The Oklahoma-born 59-year-old originally purchased the property – located near Gaviota State Park nine miles west of Santa Barbara – for $4M in 2000 although estimates today put it closer to $20M.

Brad’s eccentric touches at the beachy abode include a ceremonial-looking teepee surrounded by a fence, cloaked in the woods at the edge of the property, and accessed by a long series of steps.

‘I love that architecture is this huge art piece you can be inside,’ Pitt told Oprah Winfrey back in 2004.

‘I believe it lifts your soul and affects your mindset.’

The Babylon actor provided precisely six swings for his six children from his 12-year relationship to Mr. & Mrs. Smith leading lady Angelina Jolie, which ended in 2016 after only two years of marriage.

Brad and the 48-year-old Oscar winner had used the Goleta house ‘as a vacation retreat for themselves and the kids, horseback riding and enjoying time out on the beach’ – according to Architectural Digest.

The scenic property also features a bizarre shipping container covered in moss and greenery, which could have also been there to fascinate the blended brood of the couple formerly known as ‘Brangelina.’

A source told NewsNation on Monday that Jolie plans on ‘dragging this divorce out’ until their youngest children – fraternal twins Vivienne & Knox – ‘turn 18’ on July 12, 2026.

The Emmy-winning producer’s home consists of two main structures beside a fire pit and what appeared to be 16 designer chairs and sun loungers littering the land.

Brad’s lighter-colored beach shack features an awning and a rooftop balcony as well as a satellite dish.

Pitt’s darker-colored beach shack has a larger deck, sun room, and what appeared to be a silo in the back.

There was an outdoor dining table near the homes and beside the two-mile driftwood-covered beach accessed by a steep staircase where a white surfboard rested.

Goleta – which was only incorporated as a city in 2002 – was previously under a ‘threat to life’ evacuation warning due to the 2021 Alisal wildfire, which raged for 40 days and consumed 16,970 acres.
