Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are in the midst of a divorce and as they prepare to part ways financially, they are doing what they can to sell off their properties.
After listing their French mansion, Chateau Miraval, earlier this month, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have sold their home in New Orleans. According to a new report, the couple’s French Quarter home, which they purchased prior to their marriage, sold for $4.9 million.
“Dating back to the 1830s, the row house had been listed a year ago for as much as $6.5 million. [Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie] bought the property in 2007, following Hurricane Katrina, for $3.5 million,” the Los Angeles Times revealed to readers on October 31.
According to the report, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s home was a brick traditional-style house with a front balcony and dormer windows and located in a historic area of town.
“The nearly 7,650 square feet of living space includes scaled formal rooms, an updated kitchen, a laundry room, five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Venetian-plastered walls, custom-designed marble mantles and crown moldings are among the interior details,” the report explained. “A grand staircase and a an elevator connect the three-story home. A guest house and a two-car garage also reside on the 5,920-square-foot lot.”

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie parted ways at the end of last month after a 12-year relationship and two years of marriage. The couple also shares six children together, Maddox, 15; Pax, 12; Zahara, 11; Shiloh, 10; and Vivienne and Knox, 8.
At the time of Jolie’s filing, rumors surfaced claiming Brad Pitt may have gotten physical with Maddox and ever since the claims were made, he has been restricted from spending time with his kids without a therapist present. Because Brad Pitt is unable to spend unsupervised time with his kids, he has been staying in his Hollywood Hills home by himself while his estranged wife and their kids live in a rented home in Malibu, California.
As Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s divorce proceedings continue, it seems fairly likely that the couple will sell many of their homes in an effort to make a clean break. In fact, they’ve already listed their French home, which includes its own vineyard.

Last month, the Hollywood Take broke down Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s net worth, revealing that while both parties are worth a substantial amount, Pitt’s net worth is a bit higher than Jolie’s. According to the report, Brad Pitt is worth an estimated $240 million while Jolie is worth $160 million.
Around the same time, sources revealed to TMZ that the dividing of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie’s net worth should be fairly easy due to their prenuptial agreement. As the sources explained, their prenup is “ironclad” and clearly lays out the specifics of their combined net worth.
While Brad Pitt and his wife have a total of 12 properties together, including their recently sold home in New Orleans and their French mansion, seven of those homes belong to Brad Pitt and two belong to Jolie. Meanwhile, the other three homes were bought by the couple together prior to their 2014 marriage.
“Rather than properties being an issue in the divorce, we’re told custody of their kids will be where the war really plays out,” TMZ explained to readers.
