Leonardo DiCaprio has come a long way in 20 years – leapfrogging from Romper Room and Friends to becoming a Hollywood A-lister and, at the same time, acquiring an impressive real estate portfolio that could make Ellen DeGeneres envious . Just a few of his properties include Madonna’s former home in LA, that he snapped up in the 1990s, Dinah Shore’s fabulous Palm Springs home that he bought in 2014, and a US$23 million Malibu home he grabbed in 2017. But not all of his buys stay in his portfolio – he’s given some to his family members as gifts. Erika Jayne mansion misery: why is the RHOBH star’s home up for sale?

Built in 1928 and completely updated, the careful execution of the work retained and enhanced its period details. There are arched doorways, a tiled roof and floors, stained-glass windows, elegant baths, sweeping staircases, an intricately carved entry door and inlaid ceilings. The eat-in kitchen has all the bells and whistles that make it both pretty and functional, and the family room can alternatively be used as a media room with its drop-down screen.
