Angelina Jolie’s secret Sydney home hits the market for $11 million

Angelina Jolie’s secret Sydney home hits the market for $11 million

A stunning Sydney home used by Angelina Jolie while she filmed Unbroken has hit the market.

The Hollywood actress secretly used the home as a private wharf to secretly travel to Cockatoo Island, and now it is up for $11 million.

The bright and airy house at 37 Duke Street, Balmain East was used by Jolie specifically for its private jetty, as she would board the boat that would then ferry her to Cockatoo Island undetected to direct her Academy Award-nominated film.

Marcus Lloyd-Jones from Modern House said that the privacy of the home was what entranced Jolie, and now other buyers too.

The property sits at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac that is used by only two other residences.

Modern House’s Marcus Lloyd-Jones said this privacy was a major drawcard for Jolie and for interested buyers too.

“She was driven in [to the five-car garage], she would walk along the jetty, jump on whatever boat it was and go to Cockatoo Island to direct the movie and back the same way,” Mr Lloyd-Jones said.

“It was incredibly private.”

While Jolie used the home strictly as a thoroughfare, the home has many wonderful features including three incredible levels with harbour views.

The Nordon Jago Architects-designed house sits on a 790-square-metre waterfront block with its own private beach, leased jetty and mooring for a 50-foot boat and boat storage.

“Everything about this house is on a grand scale from the five-car garage to the 21.5-metre lap pool,” Mr Lloyd-Jones said.

“I’d like somebody to show me a larger lap pool in Balmain and the list keeps going.

“If somebody has a car collection or a large boat it’s truly the best of Sydney. That’s what’s on offer.”
