Brad & Angelina Reportedly Buy $40 Million Villa in Italy
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, whom as we noted earlier this year recently spent several months with their children in Venice, Italy (above) while Jolie filmed her new movie The Tourist, have reportedly just purchased a $40 million villa nearby in Verona. The massive Palladian-style estate in the hills of Valpolicella has about 18,000-sq.-ft. of luxury living space divided into 15 rooms with seven baths, Sky Italia reports. The couple supposedly bought the mansion after looking at two other less expensive properties in the area, one priced at $13 million and the other $10 million. "They wanted something more exclusive and in record time to spend the summer vacation in Italy," Alexander Proto of Alexander Proto Consulting, the Swiss property firm favored by celebs, is quoted as saying. In addition to immense size, the very private villa on landscaped grounds is equipped with a home cinema, gym, two swimming pools – one indoor and one outdoor, both with waterfalls – Jacuzzi tubs and acres of Carrara marble.
