While Nick Nolte has appeared in nearly 90 films, playing a wide range of characters, it is almost impossible to forget that you are watching Nick Nolte when you are seeing him. His impressive height, careworn face, and voice like gravel, make it hard to see past the man that is Nick Nolte, to the character he is playing. During his early career, and throughout the 90s, when he was playing characters that were tough, salt-of-the-earth, or rebellious, the fact that Nick Nolte's sheer charisma often overwhelmed the character's was not really an issue. In fact, it lead to multiple award nominations and wins, and kept Mr. Nolte in the public eye. However, by the early 2000s, he had fallen out of favor a bit, and his list of roles were far less high profile. The slow down in work could also have been attributed to his 2002 arrest for drunk driving. He was not, in fact, driving drunk, but was found to have GHB in his system. His now legendary mug shot was a wake-up call, and he underwent counseling. In 2011, he re-emerged in another tough guy role, appearing in the mixed martial arts film, "Warrior". His performance earned him an Oscar nomination, and has led to more roles since. While his workload seems to be picking up, it is apparently not quite enough to cover his large mansion in Malibu, as he just put the house on the market.
Nick Nolte's house in Malibu is 6000 square feet and sits on 2 acres of property surrounded by sycamore and pine trees. The four-bedroom, four-bath house features six ornate fireplaces, a massive living room, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Nick Nolte's house also has a master bedroom suite that includes a library, an office, and a sitting room. The ceiling height in the main living space is 19 feet. Outside of Nick Nolte's house, there is a freshwater lagoon, a tennis court, and a two-bedroom, three-bath guesthouse. The entire property is on sale for $8.25 million. Word on the street is that Mr. Nolte is just moving to a neighboring property, so if you are considering buying the home, you'd better be a fan.
