Billy Bob Thornton’s Home Sells on New Year’s Eve
The home once owned by both Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thornton — and then just occupied by Thornton — has sold for $8 million.
Jolie spent three years in the house while she was married to Thornton; after their divorce, the Beverly Hills home was transferred to him. Thornton lived there another nine years before listing it this past October for $9.995 million.
Like most celebrities, Thornton sought to limit the public’s access to the home at 801 N Roxbury Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210. Only one photo of the house was released to the MLS, and viewings of the home were set up through private appointments only. Despite the restraints, the home sold by New Year’s Eve.
According to the Los Angeles Times, Thornton and Jolie purchased the 11,000-square-foot home in 2000 for $3.75 million from Guns N’ Roses guitarist Slash.
Built in 1929, the Spanish-style home has 9 bedrooms, 10 baths, a recording studio, two-story living room, gym and library. The home’s grounds have the requisite pool, fountains, covered loggia and tennis court as well.
