If Brad Pitt weren't an actor, we bet he'd be a pretty famous architect by now!
The sexy star is left Angie and the family while he begins renovating the couple's $70 million French Château!
The architectural enthusiast will oversee major renovations to the family's home, which is classified as an historical monument in the tiny village of Brignoles, not far from the city of Aix-en-Provence. Apparently the super-star couple wanted to give the estate a more contemporary feel.
The 1000-acre Château Miraval already boasts a private 75-acre vineyard, a moat, a lake, a swimming pool, twenty fountains, a forest, and its own aquaduct system, complete with hidden tunnels. Yea, we see why the place needs improvements.
The list of fixes to the 35-room spread include: hot tubs, steam rooms, a spa, a new gym, a larger wine cellar, a motorbike track for Pitt's â€˜cycles, and an improved helicopter landing for the avid flyers. Security will also be extremely tight. Brangelina will install a surveillance center, spy cameras, alarms, and even infrared sensors. Sounds like a Mission Impossible movie.
Pitt has already taken on designing a five-star hotel complex in Dubai, so fixing up the French Château should be a total breeze.
