Matt Damon scopes out $40M Brooklyn mansion

It's not really Celebrity Real Estate if they haven't actually bought the place, but whispers in the housing blogosphere say Matt Damon is almost certainly picking up this magnificent mansion in Brooklyn, NY. The $40million price tag will get you 17,000 square feet of pure luxury, 15 bedrooms, 16 bathrooms and charm for days.  Damon and his wife tried to enroll their children in Brooklyn Heights’ exclusive Saint Ann’s school in August but were rejected, the Post reported. Damon also tried to buy a home 535 West End Avenue in 2012, but he was outbid. The American Institute for Architects has appropriately called this the most beautiful brownstone in New York!

"Unlike Lone Survivor, which multiplied eight insurgents into 200, Berg doesn’t exaggerate the disaster, or the heroics, and the film is more devastating for it."  Knowing the difference will make your viewing experience even richer.   filmMiss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children saw its opening weekend pull in $28.5M, followed by the Wahlberg docudrama, Deepwater Horizon.  MTV did an interesting piece about the increase in high budget non fiction work that's worth a read.
