From TRD Los Angeles: It’s official: Angelina Jolie is moving to Los Feliz in Los Angeles.

The actress and philanthropist closed on her purchase of the famed Cecil B. DeMille estate for $24.5 million last week, two months after it was rumored that she made a bid on the 2.1-acre spread, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The 11,000-square-foot mansion hit the market in late March for $24.95 million. The Beaux Arts-style abode, built in 1913, has six bedrooms, 10 bathrooms, a grand foyer, a formal living room, and multiple fireplaces. Outside, there is a tea house above the swimming pool, a pool house with a fitness room and a separate guesthouse studio.

Brett Lawyer and Rayni Williams of Hilton & Hyland shared the listing.

DeMille, an early filmmaker, bought the property in 1916 for $28,000 and later acquired the house next door, which used to be home to Charlie Chaplin. DeMille lived in the Laughlin Park home for about 40 years until his death in 1959, after which his family maintained it. [LAT]Cathaleen Chen
