Brad Pitt recently sold his Los Angeles estate for about $40 million and we’re learning some details about the generous things he’s done with the property over the years.
The 59-year-old actor first bought the 1.9-acre property back in 1994 and it was just $1.7 million back then.
Brad bought the home from Elvira, Mistress of the Dark star Cassandra Peterson and she ended up buying the home next door and lived next to him for years. Eventually, Brad expanded his estate by buying a lot of the neighboring homes.

“I think there were like 22 houses houses that were contiguous to the edge of the property. And every time they came up he bought one,” Peterson told People.
One of the homes that Brad purchased was occupied by a man in his nineties who had recently been widowed.
“He was very, very kind to the husband. His wife passed away and the husband, John, lived there,” she continued. “I know that Brad allowed him to live there without paying anything until he died. It was kind of funny because John lived to be 105.”
“I imagine Brad was thinking well, you know, he can live there till he dies, which might be any minute now,” she added.
We recently learned of some ghostly encounters that happened in the home.
