‘Amistad’ Actor Djimon Hounsou and Family Enjoy Dream Life in $10 Million Mansion

Actor Djimon Hounsou, known for roles in “Blood Diamond” and “Guardians of the Galaxy,” is seeking a tenant for his Westchester, CA, home. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom property, located just minutes from Playa Vista’s amenities, is available for $11,750 per month. Hounsou purchased the 1990 mansion for $2.1 million in 2020. Situated in a cul-de-sac in Westport Heights, the nearly 4,000-square-foot residence features a great room with maple flooring, a beamed cathedral ceiling, and walls of windows. The space is complemented by a fireplace-equipped sitting room with a stone wall, offering a cozy ambiance.

A modern kitchen with a center island, plenty of work space, and Sub-Zero, Wolf, Viking, and Bosch appliances is to the side.

Dual closets, a fireplace, and a spa bathtub are in the first-floor master suite. This bedroom opens to a rose-filled courtyard.

There are three more bedrooms and two baths upstairs. The coolest detail? Interior balconies link each room. The hot tub, barbecue, and various decks are outside.

Amenities include a downstairs flex room, a laundry room, and a two-car garage.

Benin-born actor, 59, made his debut in Steven Spielberg’s “Amistad.” He has since appeared in over 70 films, including “Gladiator,” “A Quiet Place Part II,” and “Shazam!” Nominated for multiple Academy Awards.
