Brad Pitt Receives Waterfall Birthday Present

Brad Pitt just scored what may be one of the best birthday presents I’ve ever heard of: his own personal waterfall. But first, some backstory.

Back in 2006, Angelina Jolie surprised the actor with a visit to the famous Fallingwater home designed by the great Frank Lloyd Wright. Built it 1935, the stunning architectural achievement sits directly on top of a waterfall in rural southwestern PA.

“He’s so hard to buy for,” Jolie told Fallingwater’s staff members during their visit.

“Brad said he had wanted to experience Fallingwater ever since he took an architectural history course in college,” Fallingwater’s Curator of Education Cara Armstrong said. “He and I talked quite a bit about design and art. He was incredibly well informed about architecture.”

Pitt has long expressed his love for architecture; calling it his true passion. Indeed, we’ve seen his involvement in everything from helping to rebuild New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward to projects in Dubai and Spain as reflective of this. Now, Jolie is giving him the chance to create his own Fallingwater.

“Angelina wanted to get him something incredibly special and, because she knows how much he loves architecture, she thought this would be perfect,” a source tells the Daily Mail. “She hopes this will be a hideaway for the family. Brad has dreamed of a home with the sound of a waterfall cascading under the house.”

Apparently Jolie scooped up the waterfall and the surrounding property somewhere outside of LA – likely for a very large sum. Of course, not that money is an issue for these two; especially in light of Brad’s recent sale of his Malibu pad to Ellen DeGeneres for $12M.

And yes, this home is likely to embody many of the sustainable properties Pitt has integrated into other projects.

“He wants to pull all aspects of nature, light, glass and varying levels into the concept,” the source added.

(Note: The above image is not the actual waterfall purchased by Jolie. But I still want to go to there.)
