Living Like Matt Damon In Pacific Palisades, $21MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Basically, we all want to be Matt Damon. Fit. Intelligent. Talented. Completely Decent Human Being. And while checking all those boxes is not entirely possible, for $21,000,000 we can occupy the space he and his family call home in the Upper Riviera neighborhood of Pacific Palisades. It is, like Damon, effortlessly stylish and warm. Plus seven bedrooms and ten bathrooms.
Built in 2004 and designed by Grant Kilpatrick of KAA Design in the firm’s signature style (probably best described as California Arts + Crafts x Kyoto, with a deep bow to Frank Lloyd Wright’s early 20th Century Prairie Style) of elegant, simple spaces, beautifully crafted and imbued with a sense of serenity and seamlessly connected to the outdoors. It’s dominated by an immense central space with 35-foot ceilings; a screening/media room is at the top of the stairs.
Also on the upper level, the principal bedroom suite, with a pair of dressing rooms and a very Zen yoga/massage space.
Off the central space on the main level, there’s the kitchen and a family room open to the back yard and pool.
What We Love: The Japanese/Hawaiian inspired dining pavilion and lanai next to the pool– a pool that is not standard bright turquoise.
