The 38-year-old actress was particularly excited after discovering the island’s two homes were designed by Pitt’s favourite architect Frank Lloyd Wright, the Mirror reported.
A source said that as soon as the ‘Girl, Interrupted’ star heard the island was on the market, she arranged a viewing and was really impressed with it.
The insider said that the house is perfect for romantic getaways or as a family retreat, as its very private, asserting that Jolie knows that the island’s heart shape will mean much to the ‘Fight Club’ star.
The exclusive 11-acre Petra - has a helicopter pad - is off the US coast 50 miles north of New York City and the cottage on it was put up in 1950, nine years before Wright’s death, while the main house was built in 2008 from a Wright plan and is one of his most spectacular designs.
