Actor Chris Pratt may be moving into the Marquez Knolls neighborhood—if the construction underway at a property he bought last year for $15.6 million is any indication.
Pratt purchased the expansive unfurnished “construction site” in an off-market sale last year, Variety revealed.
The sprawling property is set in motion to become a 10,000-square-foot mansion with five bedrooms and six bathrooms, according to Architectural Digest. The former dwelling had an 8,000 square feet interior and was built in 1995.
The new digs will feature a modern, infinity-edge swimming pool and pool house, home gym, wine cellar, and parking garage with multiple spaces, according to AD.
It’s located in a small gated-community by a hillside, with expansive views of the Pacific Ocean and Catalina Island.
Pratt, 40, has secured his action-hero status in movies like “Avengers Infinity War,” “Avengers: Endgame,” “Jurassic World,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and “The Lego Movie.”
Earlier this year, Pratt married book author Katherine Schwarzenegger, 29, who spent some of her childhood years in the Palisades. Her famous film-action hero father is former California Governor and Palisadian Arnold Schwarzennegger.
While waiting for the new digs, the newlyweds are allegedly living in West Los Angeles, in an 1,800-square-foot bungalow that Katherine purchased for $3.5 million in 2016.
It seems both Pratt and ex-wife Anna Faris are skilled in off-market Palisades purchases: Faris paid $4.9 million for an eco-friendly home in the family-friendly area prior to Pratt’s purchase, shared the Observer.
Faris, who stars in the television series, “Mom,” bought a five-bedroom, fully LEED-certified residence with an energy-efficient water filtration system, solar system, sound system and security features. The 4,000-square-foot house built in 2012 was converted over by the previous owners.
According to details divulged about Pratt’s divorce settlement with Faris, they have agreed to live within five miles of each other until their son reaches sixth grade, AD reported.
