Steve Martin has had the kind of long, successful acting career about which most performers dream. After establishing himself as a comedic writer for "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour", he began performing stand-up on late night talk-shows, and then multiple successful concert tours. From there, he shifted his focus to acting, playing co-starring and starring roles in such popular projects as, "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", "The Jerk", "Pennies from Heaven", "All of Me", "Three Amigos", "Roxanne", "Planes, Trains, and Automobiles", "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels", "Parenthood", and its sequel", "Leap of Faith", "Bowfinger", "Bringing Down the House", and "The Pink Panther", and its sequel. He often served as a co-writer or primary writer on these films, as well. In addition to his success as a film actor, he has also guest-starred on multiple television shows, including his recurring role on "The Smothers Brothers Show", "The Tracey Ullman Show", "Saturday Night Live", and "30 Rock". An accomplished painter, musician, playwright, novelist, and director, as well, he has wracked up numerous awards across all disciplines. To date, he's won one Emmy Award for writing, four Grammy Awards – two for Best Comedy Album, and two for Best Bluegrass Album, the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor, and the Kennedy Center Honor. In other words, Steve Martin is a total renaissance man… and a wealthy one at that. His success in all artistic arenas has led to a very impressive art collection, and an equally impressive real estate portfolio. Recently, he chose to put one of his homes on the market.
Steve Martin's house is in Lurin, St. Barthelemy, in the Caribbean, and is spread out across 28,191 square feet. The sprawling mansion, called Villa Au Soleil, houses four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms. Steve Martin's house also comes complete with high open-beam ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows that showcase the gorgeous view of the surrounding landscape from nearly every room, a state-of-the-art kitchen, formal dining room, and a media room with a large flat screen television. Outside of Steve Martin's house, you can find terraces, a sun-deck, a stunning infinity pool with two levels, a lily pond, and a gorgeous private, tropical garden. The picture-postcard-perfect home is on the market for $11.24 million, and it will be interesting to see if anyone as pedigreed as Mr. Martin, chooses to plunk down some money for it.
