Johnny Depp Sells First of Five Eclectic L.A. Penthouses for $2.5 million
If you were hoping to snap up all five of Johnny Depp’s adjacent penthouses inside Eastern Columbia Lofts, a landmarked Art Deco building in downtown Los Angeles, you’re out of luck. After a month on the market, the first has sold for $2.545 million, Nick Segal of Partners Trust confirmed to Mansion Global.
The 2,500 split-level condo is the largest of the actor’s predictably eclectic units and features two bedrooms, three baths, a galley-style kitchen, and a private terrace overlooking the city. The Wall Street Journal reported that the actor initially asked a cumulative price of $12.78 million for all five—he chose to keep the original layouts out of each but added doors to connect three and used the other two as an art studio and a guest house—but was willing to unload them individually.
Public records show the “Black Mass” star bought the condos from the developer for about $7.2 million between 2007 and 2008.
While it’s unclear whether Mr. Depp, 53, decided to list the properties as a result of his volatile divorce from actress Amber Heard, it is known he also listed his 15-bedroom compound in the south of France for a reported $55 million. Last month, the former couple reached an agreement with Ms. Heard, 30, announcing she’d donate her $7 million settlement to charity.
The remaining four penthouses inside Eastern Columbia Lofts are still for sale, collectively or individually, with price upon request.
