Does swapping New York for LA count as downsizing for Matt Damon?

Matt Damon and family are moving to their penthouse at the Standish in Brooklyn, and have put their Pacific Palisades' mansion on the market at $21 million.

For the first time in decades, Matt Damon will be making a move without his best friend, Ben Affleck.

They moved their families together to Los Angeles’ Pacific Palisades – even on the same street – back in 2012.

Matt and his wife, Luciana, purchased their luxurious home for $15 million, and have now put it on the market for $21 million.

This time it appears Affleck will be staying in Los Angeles to be near his three children while the Damon home goes on the market and the family moves to their six-bedroom penthouse at the Standish in Brooklyn Heights, New York, which they purchased in 2018 for a record-breaking $16.745 million.

The Damon’s magnificent contemporary home that is now for sale, has lush year-round landscaping and a 365-day, indoor-outdoor lifestyle.

The 4000sq m home has seven bedrooms and 10 baths, while the home’s focus is the centre atrium soaring to 10.5m with mahogany ceilings.

California-style formal rooms open seamlessly via movable glass walls allowing for vanishing thresholds between living and landscape.

Of course, there is an enviable chef’s kitchen in mahogany with bluestone countertops, the master suite has its own private terrace, dual dressing rooms, massage room and bath.

Also included is a game room, bar office, staff quarters, wine storage and tasting room, and a media room.

Outside is a pool, spa, children’s play area, a waterfall, koi pond and Hawaiian-style covered lanai for dining and lounging among tropical plantings.

The listing agent for the Damon home is Eric Haskell of The Agency, Beverly Hills.
