The historic French Quarter estate that Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt lived in for a decade has officially been sold for a cool $2.8 million.

The aughts power couple purchased the 1830s traditional-style house for $3.5 million shortly after their 12-year relationship began, after Pitt became heavily involved in rebuilding homes destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. They sold it a decade later in 2016 for $4.9 million, records show. The house changed hands multiple times since Pitt and Jolie sold it, including toPaul Allen, the late Microsoft co-founder who died in 2018, as well as recording engineer Cosimo Matassa.

Since the property was first listed for $5.35 million in September 2022, it underwent a series of price fluctuations. A year later, it dropped to $3.25 million. In early November of 2023, the estate was re-listed at $3.475 million. In December, the house went up for auction with bidding starting at $1 million. “The campaign resulted in nearly 1,000 inquiries from buyer prospects and registered 12 bidders participating in the auction,” Scott Kirk, president and CEO of auction managers Interluxe Auctions, tells ELLE DECOR, before it was ultimately sold. The buyer has not yet been identified on public records.

The seven-bedroom, seven-bathroom house boasts a number of balconies across its three stories, offering street views of the city’s famously raucous parades. Inside, many historic details of the restored residence remain intact, including its marble mantels, Venetian-plastered walls, and characteristic crown moldings. Other features include a grand winding staircase, a chef’s kitchen with a large butcher’s block island and a custom marble pantry, a home gym, and a gated carriage-style driveway illuminated by gas lamps. There’s also a private courtyard with a pool, fountain, and two-story guest house.
