What better moment for a new owner to put the Depp-Heard love nest on the market than now, with all the attention Johnny Depp and Amber Heard have received as a result of their high-profile court case? Despite just being married for 15 months, the Los Angeles building was their home, and the one-bedroom penthouse was where they “spent a good amount of their time,” according to the listing agent. Depp actually owned five of the penthouses atop the landmark Eastern Columbia Building in downtown Los Angeles. He advertised and sold all of them for a total of $12.78 million after his 2016 divorce from Heard. One of the apartments, the one-bedroom, two-bathroom penthouse, is now available for $1.765 million.
Depp is well-known for his acting roles in films such as Edward ScissorHands and Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean series, but he is almost as well-known for his propensity for owning bizarre real estate, which demonstrates the imagination that has proven to be a part of his fame. Johnny was one of Hollywood’s highest-paid performers, so it’s no surprise that he was able to purchase practically any beautiful or unusual home he liked!
Born in Owensboro, Kentucky, Depp owns or has owned a 45-acre island in the Bahamas that he discovered while filming Pirates of the Caribbean; a collection of expensive homes in the Hollywood Hills that he planned to connect with a series of tunnels; a Kentucky horse farm that he purchased for his mother; an entire French village near St. Tropez; and the five LA penthouses.
If you’ve been paying attention to the news, or you’ve just been scrolling through the hilarious memes, you’d know that Johnny Depp’s love life has been about as interesting as his real estate holdings. He married makeup artist Lori Anne Allison when he was just 20 years old, in addition to the Amber Heard marriage. Sherilyn Fenn, Jennifer Grey, Winona Ryder, Ellen Barkin, Kate Moss, and French singer-actress Vanessa Paradis are among the celebrities with whom he has had engagements or serious dating. According to rumours, Johnny is reuniting with Moss, who was a partner with Depp on some of his more nefarious endeavours, including his 1994 arrest for trashing a hotel room in New York City.
The 1,780 square foot, two-story, one-bedroom penthouse in Los Angeles is housed in one of the city’s most historic buildings and has soaring ceilings and a cosy lounge area on the staircase landing. The building’s amenities include a rooftop saltwater pool, fitness studio, spa, sundeck, Zen garden, and 24/7 concierge service, in addition to its exceptional walkability to restaurants and shopping. The listing agents are Ernie Carswell and Rick Tyberg of Douglas Elliman, Beverly Hills.
