Even A-list real estate experts like Leonardo DiCaprio make a misjudgment on an asking price every now and then. After the actor reduced the price of his Spanish-style hacienda in L.A.’s Silver Lake neighborhood from $1.75 million to $1.6 million, he sold it in less than 24 hours. The home’s currently under contract.

DiCaprio bought the house for $775,000 back in 1998 for a family member. It was built in 1931 and appears to have many of its original features intact. There’s colorful Spanish tile work throughout, terra-cotta floors, elaborate wrought-iron railings, high-beamed ceilings, and carved wood doors.

The charming tile work is one of the 3,560-square-foot home’s most gorgeous features. You’ll find it in the bathrooms, around a fireplace, throughout the kitchen, behind fountains, and on steps throughout the home.

There are new features as well, including solar panels on the roof.

The four bedroom, 4.5-bath home sits on a 6,484-square-foot lot stretching from one street to the next, with neighbors close by. However, there is plenty of privacy, thanks to high walls, hedges, and gates.

As is typical of Spanish-style homes, the gated entry opens on to a tree-shaded courtyard with a fountain and koi pond. Out back, there’s a pool and a large, covered pavilion with a drop-down movie screen for films al fresco.





An elevator whisks residents between the sun-filled master suite on the third level, down past the kitchen, living room, and study on the main level, to a three-car garage, workshop, hobby areas, and storage rooms down below.

DiCaprio, who has been nominated for six Oscars and won one for Best Actor in “The Revenant,” is currently working on Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.” His luxury real estate portfolio includes a couple of homes in the Bird Streets neighborhood, two beachfront properties in Malibu, a Tudor in the Los Feliz area, a significant Palm Springs pad, and a number of upscale condos in Manhattan.
