Johnny Depp recently listed his L.A. compound – which consists of five penthouses – for a whopping $12.78 million.
Three of the units within the 11,500-square-foot compound have been used by the “Edward Scissorhands” actor for living and entertaining, and the other two were used an art studio and guest suite.
Buyers have the option to purchase the compound as a whole, or can opt to buy individual units.
Mr. Depp could easily have ripped down walls and transform the compound into a massive sprawl, but instead chose to keep it intact in order to uphold the architectural integrity of the Eastern Columbia Building that’s known for its four-sided clock tower.
Located in the Broadway Theater District of Downtown L.A., the building can’t be missed due to it vibrant turquoise terra cotta tiles, and the word “EASTERN” lit up in bright white neon on all faces of the clock. Even the views from the building are awe-inspiring thanks to all the historic buildings along Broadway.
The art deco-inspired spread was constructed in the 1930s, and was renovated in 2007. Four of the units have two bedrooms, and one is a single-bedroom unit, with 14 bathrooms in total. Three of the units are connected with doorways. Each unit has direct access to the building’s sky deck with a pool, spa, and fitness center. They’re all outfitted with bold textured walls and a dynamic mixture of pieces that are reminiscent of Old Hollywood.
Decked out in a vibrant color palette of purple, sky blue, red and black, all of the units boast eccentric decor elements like checkered flooring, over-the-top chandeliers, rich window drapes, and unique Moroccan rugs. A wall in one of the units features a large mural painted by Brazilian street artist Os Gêmeos. All of the units truly are real-life pieces of art.
The units certainly match Depp’s quirky sense of style, with cheetah chairs, crushed velvet furniture, vintage signs, and a portrait of himself hung over a sofa.
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star began investing in the compound back in 2002 when he purchased his first unit in the building. Over the years, he added to his collection, bringing it up to five units.
If Depp gets even close to the asking price, he’ll be raking in a size-able profit considering his initial $2.1 million investment.
The 53-year-old actor decided to unleash the units after he re-listed his French estate for an astounding $55 million this past summer while his marriage to actress Amber Heard started to unravel. That’s double what he asked for the 47-acre estate a year ago. It seems as though Depp felt that now was the right time to part with that asset. Heard now dwells in London, England where she’s currently filming her new project, “The Justice League.”
