Life is good for Sylvester Stallone right now. His career has never really gotten off-track, but with the success of the Expendables franchise and now Creed the 69-year-old actor, writer, director, and producer should be busy as can be and rolling in money.
Perhaps that is why he is willing to take a $300,000 hit on this 5,173 square foot home in the upscale LaQuinta community, near Palm Springs in California.
That loss doesn't take into consideration real estate fees, any money he has put into the home, and carrying costs. This isn't the first time he has tried to sell the home either. He bought the Mediterranean Revival-style villa for $4.5 million in January 2010, but put in on the market a year later for $4.3 million.
Ten days later, he upped the price to $4.5 million, but it never sold. He tried to sell it again in 2014 for $4.2 million, but couldn't find any takers. This time he is asking $4.199 million.
The home is in the gated Madison Club golf community, and is advertised as a "Golden Globe movie star's villa." So the realtors are definitely trying to appeal to certain people—either those in the movie business or those who make enough money to live like they are.
The chef in you will have more than enough space to create whatever meals your heart desires in this incredible kitchen, but if you like the idea of cooking outside there is an outdoor grill area that any man would be proud to call his own.
The master bedroom has enough space to entertain a small party if you want, and even contains a wet-bar for refreshments, a fireplace to keep you war, and access to the home's gorgeous back door patio.
The bathroom will give you and your wife more than enough room to get ready at the same time with double sinks and plenty of counter space. Should you want to enjoy the jets in the tub it looks like it is long enough to fit either an NBA center or two normal sized people.
If you are still not sold on the place try sitting outside in the backyard for awhile. It will be hard not to relax with a view like this.
Perhaps the only downfall to the place is what the homeowner's association charges each month in fees–$1871. However, you do get quite a bit for your money: round-the-clock security, concierge services, and a clubhouse complete with a screening room, pool rooms, workout facilities, full service spa, an outdoor pool, tennis courts, and various dining options.
