Matt Damon Selling Pacific Palisades Mansion (EXCLUSIVE)

We hear from two well-placed celebrity real estate snitches that Matt Damon has furtively floated his Zen-modern mansion in the celeb-saturated upper Rivera area of Pacific Palisades as a super-secret whisper listing with an asking price of around $20 million. The Oscar winner, scheduled to reprise his role as CIA assassin Jason Bourne in the fifth installment of the money-minting spy franchise, purchased the nearly 9,000-square-foot contemporary in the early days of 2013 for $15 million, and marketing materials from that time show the mansion was designed with five family bedrooms, two staff bedrooms and a total of nine bathrooms.

All but hidden behind gates and a forbiddingly high hedge, the boxy abode was designed in the mid-2000s by L.A-based KAA Design Group as a cluster of interconnected glass, stone and wood pavilions that orbit around a central atrium with a soaring, 35-foot mahogany ceiling. The open-plan layout provides generous formal living and dining rooms, an office, eat-in kitchen and family room, a screening room and a state-of-the-art home gym. Disappearing walls of glass open up to a series of courtyards, gardens and sleeping porches, and the fully landscaped, 0.68-acre corner parcel includes flat lawns and gardens connected by wood walkways and numerous water features that include a koi pond and a swimming pool with adjacent pavilion.

Damon and his wife, Luciana, previously maintained an almost 13,000-square-foot mansion in Miami Beach, once owned by Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees. They bought the two-parcel property in 2005 for $14.5 million, first put it up for sale in the spring of 2013 with a $20 million price tag, and sold it late last year for $15.375 million.
In the past few weeks, Damon has been busy on the promotional trail for box office topping sci fi pic “The Martian,” which screened at the Toronto Film Festival.

Coincidentally, Damon’s property is on the same block as his pal Ben Affleck’s compound, which recently went on the market for $45 million in the wake of Affleck’s pending divorce from Jennifer Garner.
