Matt Damon’s character in We Bought a Zoo may have splurged on an animal sanctuary, but it’s nothing compared to the star’s real-life $15 million mansion.

The 41-year-old actor and his wife Luciana Barroso recently dropped big bucks on a new home located in the upscale Pacific Palisades community near Los Angeles.

The lavish estate, which boasts six bedrooms and eight bathrooms, includes a koi pond and swimming pool in the backyard — perfect for entertaining the couple’s four daughters and guests.

Best of all, Damon won’t be the only Oscar winner in the neighborhood.

Ben Affleck, the actor’s childhood pal, also owns a home on the very same street.

The two Cambridge, Mass., naives shot to to superstardom after winning Best Original Screenplay at the 1997 Academy Awards for Good Will Hunting.

 

Damon’s new neighborhood also plays home to a host of Hollywood A-listers including Hilary Swank and Kate Hudson.
