Forget The Wolf of Wall Street. Leonardo DiCaprio is the wolf of the Los Angeles real estate market. The Oscar winner just dropped $4.91 million on a five-bed, eight-bath home in the ritzy Los Feliz neighborhood known as The Oaks. If you think the luxurious digs look familiar, it’s probably because music maestro Moby just put it on the market back in February for $4.495 million. Moby bought the home just two years ago for $3.4 million, so it looks like he’s going to make out like a bandit on this deal.
Built in 1926, the traditional-style home underwent a two-year renovation after it was purchased by Moby. Fully reimagined to embrace modern amenities and the original craftsmanship, it’s filled with grand public rooms, towering ceilings, and hardwood floors. Measuring 4,464 square feet, the property is ideal for DiCaprio, who loves his privacy from the prying eyes of paparazzi. Guests enter through the large foyer and continue into the dramatic living room, with a beautiful crackling fireplace and towering ceilings. There’s a state-of-the-art kitchen with a walk-in pantry, as well as direct access to the beautiful outdoor living area. Upstairs, there are two dramatic master suites, each with chic bathrooms and spacious closets. One features its own loft/study/yoga practice area, perfect for zen masters like Leo and Moby! On the lower level, an assistant’s office and guest suite has a secret “speakeasy” entrance that connects to a full bathroom and steam room. Ideal for entertaining, the home features a stunning swimming pool and spa that’s surrounded by lush landscaping throughout the 9704-square-foot lot.
Leonardo has quite the busy real estate portfolio. In 2016, he listed his Malibu, CA estate for $10.95 million, after owning it for 18 years. (However, a lot of those were spent renting it out for the bargain price of $150,000 per month in the summer season.) Back in 2013, he sold his other beachfront Malibu compound for $17.35 million. He also owns multiple properties in New York City, Palm Springs, and West Hollywood. Oh, and Moby won’t be all that far: he still owns the home next door.
