This mid-century dream house is on the market for $2,049,000, and it's (one of) Angelina Jolie's childhood homes. According to Curbed, Jolie Pitt's mother, Marcheline Bertrand, moved to the house in the 1980s, after leaving Jon Voight. But who cares who lived there? Do you care that Joe Piscopo also lived there? The Palisades home is gorgeous, and it's kind of upsetting to see how much more you can get for your money just 25 miles outside of the city.
The 4,088-square-foot house was built in 1958, and it's also knowns as "The Whitney House," since it was built for the Whitney family (of Whitney Museum fame). From the listing:
The Whitney House, outstanding renovation of iconic circa 1959 mid-century contemporary, designed for a descendant of one of America's most important "art" families.
Appointments include natural stonework (walls and floors), redwood, oak, pine and large ceiling beams flank the great room. Period railings from the second floor loft were restored and create much style. State of the art redwood kitchen w/Viking appliances. New baths include white marble in master. New mechanicals.
Two acre parcel with old stone walls provides much privacy. Space for pool, tennis and/or garage. Home is located on charming, narrow lane. NYC just 25 minutes away.
Bonus: Bill Murray and Björk also have homes nearby; you guys can start a band together. Once you build that garage.
