Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie put New Orleans home up for sale

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie hope to sell their New Orleans home for a $3 million profit.

The celebrity duo - who tied the knot in the South of France last year - acquired the two-story property for $3.5 million in 2006 and are now hoping to sell it for $6.5 million having just listed it on the market, TMZ reports.

The renovated 1830s property features spectacular-looking chandeliers and high ceilings, as well as a grand spiral stair case and elevator.

What's more, the extravagant abode boasts a chef's kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and a large private courtyard, in addition to a two-storey guest house.

The home - which is situated in New Orleans' French Quarter - includes five bedrooms and more than three bathrooms.

The couple acquired the property in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, which devastated the city, and Brad, 51, spent a lot of time there as his foundation, Make It Right, helped with the rebuilding effort.

Brad's foundation was responsible for constructing affordable, eco-friendly homes in the city following the devastation and has since branched out to other destinations, including Newark, Kansas City and Fort Peck.
