Matt Damon has sold his Zen mansion in the Riviera neighborhood of Pacific Palisades for $18 million. In one of Pacific Palisades’ most expensive deals of the year, records show that the buyer is the first female CEO of Warner Bros, TV executive Ann Sarnoff, who has been overseeing WarnerMedia Studios and Networks since 2019. The Oscar-winner and one of the highest grossing actors of all time, Damon, originally listed his Zen retreat for $21 million in January, which is $6 million more than he paid for in 2012. Damon relocated to the East Coast in 2018 where he purchased a penthouse for $16.7 million in Brooklyn.
The 13,500 square feet mansion on two-thirds of an acre in the Palisades was designed by Grant Kirkpatrick, who is a founding partner of the Los Angeles based architecture firm KAA Design. Kirkpatrick created a tropical feel with Asahi glass, natural stone, and warm wood in the three-story building. The centerpiece of the home is the 35 foot atrium under the mahogany ceiling. The mansion has seven bedrooms, ten bathrooms, a gym, office, wine cellar, massage room, media room, and game room. Lanais and lounges create a Zen feeling around the pool at the back of the property. The rear of the property also includes a playground, koi pond, waterfall, spa, and palm trees to create a resort style space.
Laura Finley and Santiago Arana of the Agency represented the buyer. Eric Haskell, also of the Agency, was the listing broker.
