Tommy Lee Jones' House: Will a $26 Million Sale Finally Make the Man Smile?

By on February 25, 2013 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

When you think of Tommy Lee Jones, you think of grizzled lawman.  You think of a sheriff, or a deputy, or a man on a mission.  You think tough, no nonsense, a real man's man.  Or maybe you just think of the dude who somehow managed to frown his way through the entirety of Will Ferrell and Kristin Wiig's very funny Golden Globes presentation.  However, you picture him, Tommy Lee Jones is pretty much synonymous with the idea of dudes you just don't mess with.  The award-winning actor-director, who was the college roommate of Al Gore(!), grew up in Texas, and began his professional acting career just after graduating from Harvard University.  He made his Broadway debut in 1969, and his film debut in, "Love Story", a year later. From then on, he moved between theater, film, and television work continuously, and has not stopped since.  He is most widely recognized for his performances in multiple critically and commercially successful films, including "JFK", "The Fugitive", "Natural Born Killers", the "Men in Black" franchise, "No Country for Old Men", "Captain America: The First Avenger", and most recently, "Lincoln", for which he received his fourth Oscar nomination.  When he is not acting, he likes to spend time on one of his multiple ranches.  Recently, he chose to put his estate in Florida, on the market.

Tommy Lee Jones' house is an 11,000 square foot mansion set on 50 acres of land.  The main house contains four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a state-of-the-art kitchen, hardwood floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows on all sides.  Tommy Lee Jones' house also comes with a regulation-sized polo field, where he often plays  polo with his local team.  There are also 48 stalls to accommodate the many horses that frequent the ranch for matches.  Surrounding the main structure of Tommy Lee Jones' house, there are also multiple horse trails.  He purchased the property for $4.62 million in 2002, but multiple renovations (and his increased fame), have boosted the selling price to a gulp-inducing $26.75 million.  Maybe some Tommy Lee Jones/polo game loving fan will jump at the opportunity to buy the property.  Only time will tell.
