An October 7 Variety story reported “Chris Pratt Buys $15 Million Palisades Construction Site.”
Pratt, 40, who has starred in the blockbusters, “The Lego Man,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” “Avengers: Endgame,” and “Jurassic World” purchased a Marquez Knolls property in 2018 for $15.6 million.
Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger, whom he wed in June, will call Pacific Palisades home.
Schwarzenegger, 29, the eldest child of actor and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and broadcast journalist Maria Shriver, lived in the Palisades as a child before the family moved to Brentwood.
Schwarzenegger has been living in Santa Monica. She has written three books “Rock What You’ve Got: Secrets to Loving Your Inner and Outer Beauty from Someone Who’s Been There and Back,” “I Just Graduated . . . Now What? Honest Answers from Those Who Have Been There” and “Maverick and Me.”
When the newlyweds’ home is completed, it will total 10,000 sq. ft. with five-bedrooms, six-bathrooms. It will include a home gym, a wine cellar and a pool house. The mansion, which sits on a hillside lot with views of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island, is in a small gated community, shared with five other homes.
The original unfinished 8,000-sq.-ft home on that site was built in 1995 but did not have a pool.
According to Variety, the divorce stipulation between Pratt and ex-wife Anna Faris, agrees that the couple will live within five miles of each other until their son Jack, finishes sixth grade.
Faris, 42, stars in the hit sitcom “Mom,” from Palisades resident Chuck Lorre. She is also known for “Overboard,” “Smiley Face,” “Lovers Lane” and as the surrogate mother of Monica and Chandler’s twins in “Friends.”
According to Architectural Digest, Faris purchased a $4.9 million 5-bedroom, 5.5 bathroom, LEED-certified 4,000 sq. ft. home in Pacific Palisades in February 2018.
The Digest writes about Faris’ home, “Both the interior and exterior evoke a sense of organic living, with wood and stucco on the outside and white and wood detailing on the inside. The entire property sits behind tall hedges and a succulent-filled courtyard, giving off more of that clean, green vibe.”
