Brad Pitt is filming War Machine in England — and it’s been reported that he and wifey Angelina Jolie looked into multiple homes (or more specifically, mansions), but didn’t find one in London that had enough privacy and security. So they looked outside the city to Surrey and found the perfect new celebrity-priced pad.
Would you pay $21,000 a month to live like the Brangelina clan? Because that’s the Jolie-Pitts' new rent, according to Us Weekly — and many of the homes near them are on sale in the $30 million ballpark in US currency equivalent.
Their new home has an indoor and outdoor pool, movie theater, and a spa. It’s got eight bedrooms and is situated right next to the river Thames.
Surrey is a bit more “country” but it’s just on the outskirts of London — with towering property values. But what makes Surrey worthy of home in this price range?
For folks like the Jolie-Pitts, it might have a lot to do with the amazing schools in the area and easy transportation into London, since Surrey is the home of many who do the daily London work commute on the train.
If you're simply vacationing in Surrey, here's what you've got to do.
First, you must stay at the Langshott Manor Hotel. It’s quintessential English: a 16th-century stone mansion with ivy growing up the sides, surrounded by a stunning garden. Rooms have standalone bathtubs and there is a high tea service. It's just a fairytale come to life, and for convenience, it’s also not far from Gatwick airport.
When you escape to the country, go on a hike or bike ride… or maybe just check into a spa for the day and totally unwind.
There are lots of parks and even castles to check out here.
Walk around Box Hill area, explore the grounds of Guildford Castle, or the Hampton Court Palace. Grab yummy British picnic foods at the cute mom and pop shops and take it along with you.
The best bit about Surrey, if you ask us? Spending afternoons shopping, hitting up the farmer's market, and hanging out in Vero Cibo Cafe in downtown Guildford, and then spending the evening walking the same streets to have dinner and drink ciders in the many pubs — like the Red Lion Inn, White Horse, or Kings Head Pub.
