Academy Award winner, a passionate environmentalist, and Hollywood heartthrob Leonardo DiCaprio has been known by many titles since his debut into film and television over two decades ago (yes, you can complain about feeling old now, because it really has been that long). We get a lot of questions about Leonardo DiCaprio House – I guess you guys are curious about where this stud lives and what his life is like. We aim to please, and first up is a bit about this superstar, then his homes – so let’s dive in!
Leonardo DiCaprio’s early television origins began with an appearance on the children’s series Romper Room and Friends (1979), and then appearances on television commercials for brands such as Matchbox Cars, Apple Jacks, Kraft Singles, Bubble Yum, Fred Meyer, Honda, and Suzuki in the late 80s. After doing his rounds in advertising, Leo would go on to make brief appearances on series such as The New Lassie, The Outsider, Santa Barbara, and Roseanne before nabbing his roles on Parenthood and Growing Pains in the early 90s.
His first actual film debut was in the 1991 Scifi film Critters 3, DiCaprio wouldn’t really get to show the world his true talent until starring opposite Robert DeNiro in This Boy’s Life (1993), and then co-starring with fellow up-and-coming star Johnny Depp in the film What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?, a role which garnered the actor an Academy Award nomination for his depiction of Arnie Grape, a mentally-challenged young man cared for by his older brother (Depp) following the death of their father. DiCaprio would go on to star in The Basketball Diaries (1995), and then break our hearts in modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s Romeo + Julie, before finally melting hearts altogether in the epic romance Titanic (1997), which would go on to become the highest grossing film of all time and bump a young DiCaprio up from child star to hottie heartthrob (oh come on ladies, you know you wanted to be part of Jack Dawson’s sketchbook back in the day!).
With his pension for gritty roles, those brooding and serious facial expressions, and his handsome good looks – Leonardo DiCaprio is frequently considered this generation’s Robert DeNiro, and with the talent and passion that he gives to every film, it’s no surprise the man would earn such a distinguished comparison. Also no surprise he’s an Academy Award Winner for his role in The Revenant.
Leonardo DiCaprio House: The Tale of $60,000,000
From his Hollywood compound to his island getaway, Leonardo DiCaprio has impeccable taste in real-estate and has some breath-taking homes in his property portfolio. Here are some of the more notable bachelor pads, both past, and present, that this A-lister has been lucky enough to call home.
Leonardo DiCaprio House Hollywood Hills
Purchased for $4 million back in 1994, Leo’s Hollywood Hills compound is the result of two side-by-side properties merged together, one of which formally belonging to pop icon Madonna before she sold it to DiCaprio for $2 million not long after his purchase of the first property.
Leo commissioned a full renovation of the 4,551 square-foot property in order to create the ultimate Hollywood digs to suit his needs. The 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom home features a massive basketball court and swimming pool as well as incredible city views.
Currently, the house acts as an occasional crash pad for some of Leo’s nearest and dearest, including best friend Tobey Maguire. We all need a friend like that!

Leonardo DiCaprio House Los Angeles
Built in 1931, this traditional, Spanish style home in Silver Lakes has been part of Leo’s real-estate collection for an amazing 19 years. However, the actor has reportedly decided to finally part ways with the 3,560 square-foot property and has placed it on the market for $1.7 million as of 2018. The 4-bedroom, 4-and-a-half-bathroom home features a swimming pool, a super private courtyard complete with a fountain, and a covered pavilion.
Leonardo DiCaprio Malibu House (Current)
Despite listing his old beach abode (more on that below), it seems Leo is not done with Malibu just yet since the actor reportedly dished out $23 million on a 610-square-foot property on a cliff’s edge in Paradise Cove in 2017. Yep – you heard that right. 610 square feet.
The original home on the property, previously owned by Ridley Scott, was demolished shortly after the purchase to make way for DiCaprio’s brand-new beachfront haven on the 1.76-acre beachfront property.

Leonardo DiCaprio Malibu House (Former)
Yet another gorgeous notch in Leo’s property-owning belt is the exotic beach bungalow the actor owned for over a decade before listing it for $10.95 million back in 2016. Complete with an awesome view of the Pacific Ocean and a private beach to chillax on, this cozy little 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, 1,765-square-foot beach house possesses a modern, yet simplistic charm in terms of décor and features a private hot tub and a deck that is perfect for a lazy day of lounging and watching the waves.
Property records show that the home has been taken off the market, so who knows what he’s doing with it!

Leonardo DiCaprio NYC Apartment
Always the consummate environmentalist, Leo purchased a condo at the incredibly popular, and incredibly eco-friendly, New York City high rise apartment building known as “The Riverhouse” back in 2008 for $3.67 million, and then went on to purchase yet another unit in the same building for $8 million in 2014.
The actor’s newest 2,327 square-foot unit, adjacent to his first apartment, contains 2-bedrooms and a huge terrace that overlooks the Hudson River. Additionally, the building features a 50-foot pool, a yoga studio, 24/7 concierge services, and a billiard room for apartment residents.

Leonardo DiCaprio House Palm Springs, CA
Designed by Donald Wexler for late singer and actress Dinah Shore in 1964, Leonardo’s Palm Springs home has quite the history. Palm Springs has long been a haven for celebrities looking to escape the hustle and bustle of LA. Even more so back in the day for people like Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, and Elizabeth Taylor.
Leo bought the7,022 square-foot home in February 2014 for $5.32 million and proceeded to overhaul the place with much-needed renovations before offering it up for short-term rentals. The 6 bedroom, 8 bathroom home goes for a whopping $3,750/night, and with a 2-night minimum, you can bet I won’t be staying there anytime soon.
We’ve got more where that came from! See Leonardo Dicaprio House Palm Springs Address & Photos here!
**Oh, and for those of you who ask about Leonardo DiCaprio House Palm Beach…that doesn’t exist. Our assumption is that Palm SPRINGS in the California desert has gotten confused with the more widely known Palm BEACH in Florida.
Leonardo DiCaprio Island, Belize
Though he doesn’t actually reside on the island, it would be an injustice not to add this amazing piece of paradise the actor bagged back in 2005 for $1.75 million to the list. Following the big purchase, Leo announced that the island would not only feature a completely eco-friendly luxury resort, named “Blackadore Caye”, but also that the island was to undergo a massive environmental restoration in order to replenish and restore the land back to its former glory sum 30 years ago.
As of 2018, progress on the tropical getaway is still ongoing; however, DiCaprio was reported to have received the final approval needed from Belize’s Department of the Environment to begin the construction on his dream retreat. Rumor has it, the exotic hotel will feature overwater villas, infinity pools, a rainwater filtration system, and every structure will be powered with 100% renewable energy.
Blackadore Caye Resort (also the name of the island) will have 36 bungalows and 36 estate homes, which will be powered by 100% renewable energy harvested from solar panels. Rainwater will also be collected and filtered, then run through solar-powered desalination treatments to suit the water needs of the island.

Leonardo DiCaprio Relationships
For starters, Leonardo DiCaprio wife does not exist…yet!
With a romantic history that includes 4 actresses, 15 models, and one pop singer – Leo’s little black book seriously has to be the size of the yellow pages by now.
In the past, rumors were floating around the celeb-verse that Leonardo DiCaprio and Rihanna were having an on-again-off-again fling since the pair may or may not have shared a kiss during a party at the Playboy Mansion back in 2015. These rumors resurfaced in 2018 following the reports that Leo had snuck into the singer’s birthday after party. Despite the rumors, however, it seems a pretty big stretch that these two have managed to have a secret love affair all these years, especially given that they’ve only been seen hanging out on a few occasions and both parties are currently in serious relationships with other people. So, if they have been star-crossed lovers all this time, they are seriously committed to keeping it under wraps.
So, who is Leonardo DiCaprio dating? As of this post, he’s with 21-year-old Argentinian supermodel and actress Camila Morrone. She reportedly has DiCaprio so smitten, the actor is rumored to be tossing around the idea of actually putting a ring on it. In fact, a close source to the couple let slip that the pair “are very serious” and that the lovebirds have even discussed getting engaged. So, will there be a Mrs. DiCaprio in Leo’s near future? Perhaps even a Leo Jr.? Only time and every gossip mag in Hollywood will tell. Until then, we can only wait and speculate what their super, eco-friendly wedding may look like.
Leonardo DiCaprio Net Worth
After over two decades in the biz and a boatload of blockbusters under his belt, Leonardo DiCaprio has managed to gain a massive net worth of $245 million! Hence the insane property portfolio!
Leonardo DiCaprio Oscar
Considering how much the guy has contributed to cinema and how long he’s been in Hollywood, you’d think Leonardo DiCaprio would have so many statues of the golden guy, he’d be forced to dedicate an entire house to store them.
However, out of 6 Oscar noms, the actor has only ever been given a single Academy Award for his role as Hugh Glass in the gritty 2015 drama The Revenant. The prior films DiCaprio was nominated for include What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, The Aviator, Blood Diamond, and The Wolf of Wallstreet. It’s almost criminal to think it took so long for this A-lister to be recognized by the Academy, but with the caliber of actor DiCaprio is, we can assume his first win will be only one of many future wins to come.
