Where Does Keanu Reeves Live and What’s His House Like?
Keanu Reeves is an incredibly talented actor with over 30 years of experience in his field. He possesses a certain energy and charisma that has earned him roles in some of Hollywood’s biggest films, from the The Matrix movies to the John Wick franchise. His net worth is an estimated $360 million (and counting). But despite all his fame, fortune, and glory, Reeves lives a modest lifestyle — all the way down to his house.
Keanu Reeves has built a career that allows him to have whatever he wants
Reeves’s career dates back decades. After taking acting courses in the ’80s, he booked his first TV role in 1984 on the Canadian sitcom Hangin’ In. The program was short-lived but helped the actor get his name out there. Eventually, Reeves was able to land work in a variety of projects including the 1989 science fiction comedy Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, the 1992 horror Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and the 1997 thriller The Devil’s Advocate.
Movies like The Matrix (1999), Constantine (2005), and John Wick (2014) helped him become as big of a deal as he is now. But despite his fame, Reeves has shown that he isn’t totally fond of the spotlight. He’s a famously low-key person who tends to keep most aspects of his life under wraps, from his relationship status to his living arrangements.
Keanu Reeves lives a quiet life in California
According to Velvet Ropes, Reeves lives in an $8 million mansion in The Hollywood Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles. Purchased in 2003, it’s a 5,607 square foot home that features just two bedrooms, three bathrooms, a pool, and a three-car garage.
Reeves is so private that it doesn’t appear that he has ever talked publicly about his house and its details. But he has complained about all the activity that goes on in front of his place.
“I’ll come out in the morning and get my newspaper [and star spotters are there],” he said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph (via Meaww). “You feel like an animal in a cage.”
Elaborating on the tourists and visitors that sit outside his property, Reeves continued, “They visit everyone’s homes and sit outside… They look at you like: ‘There’s One!’ And I get it. But walking around LA, no one cares pretty much.”
Keanu Reeves bounced around a lot before settling on the home
Before putting roots down in the home, Reeves spent a lot of time living at hotels, he told GQ. He also lived in rental homes around Los Angeles but nothing compared to having his own space, he added at a music festival (via The Things).
“And so for a couple of years I went looking and looking. And I had a wonderful experience. When you walk into a place and you go, ‘Oh, this is it, this is it’. So I was able to live in that place, the home where I live now. It gives you something, you know, it’s a safe place, a place to rest, a place to think, to entertain. It’s great to have it,” he shared.
