Matt Damon Selling Modern Pacific Palisades Estate for $21M

The Academy Award-winning A-lister Matt Damon has listed his posh Pacific Palisades residence for a hefty $21 million.

That is certainly a pretty penny, but the property, at 13,508 square feet on 0.58 acres, is one of the largest available in the prestigious Upper Riviera neighborhood of Pacific Palisades.

But size isn’t all that matters. The Zen-inspired residence built in 2004 is also a private and tranquil retreat. The architect, Grant Kirkpatrick of KAA Design Group, used warm woods and natural stone to give the seven-bedroom home an organic feel.

The grounds are full of lush, tropical plants that benefit from the sea breezes and humidity from the nearby Pacific Ocean.

Mature foliage surrounds the children’s play area, pool, spa, waterfall, and koi pond, and also a Hawaiian-inspired lanai with a covered lounge and an alfresco dining terrace.

The estate is perfectly suited to a celebrity of Damon’s stature. It’s private, gated, and feels remote, yet is just minutes away from the new shopping, dining, and entertainment complex known as the The Palisades Village, as well as the prestigious Riviera Country Club. It’s also a quick drive to Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, and the LAX airport.

Damon, 50, has starred in numerous hits, including the “Oceans” trilogy, “The Talented Mr. Ripley,” “Saving Private Ryan,” “Invictus,” and “The Martian.” The last two on that list won him Oscar nominations. He has three films in post-production, “The Last Duel,” “Stillwater,” and “No Sudden Move.”

Eric Haskell of The Agency has the listing.
