Keanu’s Hollywood Hills home which he’s dubbed his “Chateau Modern” was purchased for $4.85 Million and is now estimated to be worth $8.07 Million.

Talk about a good investment!

To emphasize, the 5,607 square foot mansion comes with a pool, a three-car garage, and a sizeable courtyard to soak in that southern California sun.

Apparently, Keanu also owns or owned a piece of real estate in Honolulu Hawaii.

With a 30-foot waterfall lining the entranceway as the main feature, nature-flavored opulence is everywhere.

This gorgeous home which covers 10,245 square feet consists of 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms spread across 3 stories.

The Price?

A Spanking $6.8 Million.

Cars

Asides from a few fancy pants houses, one might easily assume that Keanu has a couple of luxurious or lightning-fast cars in his garage.

While for the majority of celebrities that couldn’t be truer, it isn’t for Keanu.

Despite how awesome he looks behind the wheels of a Mustang in John Wick or a nonstop bus in Speed, Reeves is more of a Motorcycle guy himself.

Sure, he’s slung praise for his $100,000 Porsche 911 Carrera and his rare air-cooled $150,000 Porsche 933.

But, his heart ultimately lies with the two-wheeler.

Motorcycle

His long list of bikes which he chops and changes regularly is headlined by this old school Norton Commando.

Although these models were relaunched in 2008, the one in Keanu’s collection is a classic from 1973.

The Beautiful Italian Stallion was with the Wachowskis, who was the writer and director of The Matrix Trilogy, but Keanu is the current caretaker of the Ducati.

Keanu Reeves Lifestyle and Vacation

Reeves is shockingly private, largely shunning the flashy celebrity lifestyle.

It was around early 1999 when he met and fell in love with Jennifer Syme an actress and personal assistant.

Before long Jennifer was Pregnant.

However, shortly before Christmas 1999, eight months into her pregnancy, Syme gave birth to their stillborn daughter, Ava Archer Syme Reeves.

The loss of a child is one of the most intense tragedies a person can endure which inevitably takes a massive toll on relationships.

Especially, the one between the child’s parents.

This was very much the case with Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Syme.

Sadly, but very much understandably the couple split few weeks after laying their daughter to rest in January 2000.

At a dinner party in 2009, Keanu met Alexandra Grant and went on to write two photographic books together.

The couple went public with their relationship in November 2019.

Keanu lives a pretty moderate lifestyle and constantly keeps in touch with his mom and other family members.

In fact, he’s attended several events with his mom.

He has been spotted in places like Japan, Sydney, New York City, and San Trope just to name a few.

Keanu Reeves Charity and Donations

When we say the word, Keanu Reeves, for a lot of people the word that comes to mind; “Generous”.

And that couldn’t be more accurate.

In the man’s own words, “Money is the last thing I think about, I could live on what I have already made for the next few centuries.”

Reeves supports several charities and causes.

He’s founded and operated his own private foundation which provided aid to a couple of children’s hospitals to which he donated millions.

The foundation also provides cancer research.

However, Keanu does not like to associate his name with the foundation and simply lets the foundation do its thing.

Furthermore, Reeves has also donated significant amounts to People for the Ethical Treatment to Animals (PETA), the SickKids Foundation, and Score.

Similarly, it is reported that Keanu handed a significant portion of his profits from the Matrix sequels to the film’s costume design and special effects team.
