'Brangelina' House on the Market in Edmond
By Charles Bassett, NEWS 9
OKLAHOMA CITY -- A home in the metro inspired by two famous actors is nearing completion and comes with a hefty price tag.
A 4,000 square foot Edmond home called Brangelina was inspired by actors Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and was designed by artist Xvala and sculptor Daniel Edwards.
Outside, the home looks like any other home in the area, but the differences are on the inside.
"It's a name with exclusivity, and if you can give exclusivity to somebody you're giving them optimism," Xvala said.
The house has the same features of a regular house including bedrooms, bathroom, a big kitchen, family room, and garage, but what is most noticeably unique about the home is the art throughout.
"The house itself is a work of art," Edwards said.
The home features the controversial sculpture of Angelina breast feeding, but the signature piece is a sculpture of the famous couple being intimate. The sculpture is bolted to the ceiling in the master bedroom and was designed by Edwards.
"The sculpture mounted on the ceiling above the bed is pretty much to inspire the room's occupants to be loving and nurturing and intimate," Edwards said.
The artists said the downturn in the housing market also inspired them to build the home, but it isn't cheap. The price tag is nearly $500,000.
"We're not trying to create the most affordable home. That's not our battle. We're trying to create the idea that a home is a special place," Edwards said.
There will be one stipulation for the person who ends up buying the home. They must sign a honorary contract saying they'll allow Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie to stop by anytime they like.
"Whoever buys the house, if it's bought as an art piece or a livable home, both celebrities have full-time access year-round here," said Cory Allen, Brangelina project coordinator.
The artists said they have reached out to the couple, but still have not received word on whether they will actually stop by.
The builders are still putting some finishing touches on the house, but it should be ready in about a week.
