Quentin Tarantino is making Israel his more permanent home following the birth of his son, Leo, and now you can be his neighbor in a $5.5 million luxury penthouse — and perhaps even share a bunker.
A duplex penthouse with two floors, the property in the residential Tel Aviv neighborhood of Ramat Aviv Gimel is situated only a few blocks from the esteemed director and screenwriter — and, as required by Israeli law, has a built-in bunker.
The eight-time Academy Award winner has resided there with his Israeli wife, Daniella Pick, since the height of the pandemic.
In his most recent interview with Bill Maher last month, Tarantino revealed that in May — at the height of the Gaza conflict — he would be accustomed to hiding out in the bunker.
“There was a city-wide siren going on and that’s letting you know that the Hamas missiles are on their way. And then I take my 15-month-old son and my wife and we go down into a bomb shelter,” Tarantino said.
But the “Once Upon a Time … in Hollywood” filmmaker admitted he doesn’t “get scared” of the missiles.
“I’m not scared at all. Like everyone else here, I don’t really notice it,” he said.
Representatives for Tarantino did not immediately reply to a request for comment from The Post.
Pegged as a smart home, features of the nearby penthouse include five spacious suites with sea views and five bathrooms, three salons and a study with marble tiles throughout.
Spanning over 7,500 square feet, the property also features a 1,000-square-foot roof terrace that wraps around from the living room and overlooks the Mediterranean seaside. Two parking spaces are also reserved for the owner in the 16-story high-rise building, according to the listing.
Initially splitting his time between Los Angeles and Tel Aviv, Tarantino, 58, described his life in Israel as “wonderful” in a January 2020 interview with Yedioth Ahronoth News.
“I love the country, and the people are really nice, very nice to me, and they seem excited that I’m here.”
However, Tarantino admitted he is still trying to learn the Hebrew language.
“I can’t have a conversation now, but I know many words in Hebrew,” he said. “Obviously, I’m going to learn. I don’t want my boy or girl to speak a language I can’t understand.”
Tarantino welcomed his first child with his wife on February 22, 2020. He married Pick, who is 20 years younger, in 2018 after dating on and off since 2009.
Tarantino recently made headlines after revealing in an interview with “Billions” co-creator Brian Koppelman on his “The Moment” podcast that he hasn’t given a penny to his mom since she was not supportive of his writing career when he was a child.
“My mom always had a hard time about my scholastic non-ability,” he said.
When Tarantino was in trouble for writing screenplays in school, he recalled of his mom, “She was bitching at me … about that … and then in the middle of her little tirade, she said, ‘Oh, and by the way, this little “writing career,” with the finger quotes and everything. ‘This little “writing career” that you’re doing? That s–t is over!’”
Tarantino added, “And when she said that to me in that sarcastic way, I was in my head, and I go, ‘OK, lady. When I become a successful writer, you will never see penny one from my success. There will be no house for you. There’s no vacation for you, no Elvis Cadillac for Mommy. You get nothing. Because you said that.’”
Koppelman asked Tarantino, “Did you stick to that?”
“Yeah, yeah,” Tarantino said. “I helped her out with a jam with the IRS. But no house. No Cadillac, no house.”
The filmmaker still owns the Los Angeles home he purchased in 1989 for $2.7 million, as well as a luxury apartment in New York City.
