The Petra Island is 11 acres in size. It boasts of vast expanse of stone, cement, mahogany and skylights.

The actress said the Mirror UK could not be more excited to find out that both houses were designed by one of Pitt’s top two favorite architects, Frank Lloyd Wright. Records show that the cottage was built in 1950 but the main residence was built in 2008, a picture of modern architecture.
