Angelina Jolie wants to put down new roots.
Jolie has made an offer on the historic Cecil B. DeMille Estate in Los Angeles for just under the $24.95 million asking price, a source confirms to PEOPLE. The deal isn’t yet official, though, as the 6-bedroom, 10-bathroom mansion still has to pass the actress’s inspections.
The property’s first tie to Hollywood came in 1916 when it was purchased by iconic director Cecil B. DeMille for under $28,000, according to Variety. Charlie Chaplin once lived in a neighboring house, but after the silent film star moved out, DeMille, who produced religious epics like The Ten Commandments and Samson and Delilah, purchased and combined the two estates. He reportedly used Chaplin’s residence as production offices and a screening room.

The listing says the 1913-build has since undergone a six-year renovation, which aimed to update the home with modern amenities while still highlighting the original details.
A pool house, studio with separate entrance, fountains, rose gardens, rolling lawns and more are situated on the estate’s stunning 2.1 acres of land. The main house is 11,000 square feet, offering plenty of space for Jolie, who has been living in rental homes since her split with Brad Pitt last fall, and her six children to make themselves at home in this storied Hollywood estate.

Update (April 14, 2017, 3:55 P.M.): A source close to Angelina Jolie confirms exclusively to Vanity Fair that she has entered escrow on the house.
The original post continues below.
Angelina Jolie has made a few moves since filing for divorce from Brad Pitt—she started her professorship at the London School of Economics and premiered her new movie First They Killed My Father—but none as big or stylish as this one. TMZ reports that Jolie is purchasing a massive estate in Los Feliz that was owned by late director Cecil B. DeMille until his death in 1959. (DeMille, the Hollywood producer whose name became synonymous with “spectacle,” was behind 1934's Cleopatra—and Jolie spent years developing a Cleopatra passion project of her own. Coincidence? Probably.)
The home, owned by novelist Richard Grossman and art consultant Lisa Lyons, had been on the market for $24.95 million since late March, and TMZ writes that she paid close to the asking price.
According to the estate’s listing on Hilton & Hyland’s Web site, the six-bedroom, 10-bathroom home with its very own street name (its address is listed as 2000 De Mille Dr.) clocks in at 11,000 square feet. The Beaux Arts style mansion was built in 1913, and Jolie and her family will be getting not just the main house, but a “multi-structure compound” on 2.1 acres with a pool house and studio house.
The realtor’s site includes a video tour, which shows off the home’s sweeping views of the Griffith Observatory (as seen in La La Land) and the ocean. The grounds include gorgeous landscaping and an old Hollywood-style pool with arched fountains.
