A luxurious British estate in Surrey (UK), which the famous Hollywood actor and director Antonio Banderas acquired after his divorce from actress Melanie Griffith, is up for sale. Thanks to this event, all admirers of the talent of the hot Spaniard can look into the house, which, according to Antonio, "sparkles like a diamond." It is unlikely that fans will be able to buy a mansion in an elite town called "English Beverly Hills", but everyone, without exception, will definitely be able to enjoy photographs of a three-story residence surrounded by a fragrant garden.
The famous Spanish heartthrob, Hollywood actor and director - Antonio Banderas, recently put up for sale his stunning half-timbered mansion located in the suburbs of London.
Let's remind: Antonio Banderas decided to buy a mansion 30 km from London after his divorce from his second wife, winner of the Golden Globe, Oscar and Emmy nominees - Melanie Griffith. In 2015, the hot Spaniard left California with his beloved Nicole Kimpel and settled in the countryside away from the bustle of the city. For the star actor, the German company Huf Haus produced a prefabricated house featuring floor-to-ceiling glass panels installed on all sides of the mansion. Estate with a stunning three-storey house of 500 sq. m, an outdoor pool, a luxurious garden and green lawns for more than 4 thousand square meters. m of land cost the Hollywood star 3.1 million euros.
The impressive house, which is designed according to the principles of the renowned Bauhaus school of building and shaping, is as energy efficient as possible even though all the walls are made of glass. To ensure a comfortable living environment, the façade of the building has been replaced with high-end triple glazing with multifunctional characteristics. This, combined with its transparent properties, allows natural light to penetrate into all rooms without significant heat loss and excessive heating of the interior on sunny days. But underfloor heating and a modern air conditioning system allow you to maintain a comfortable temperature at any time of the year.
It is worth noting that despite the fact that the house turned out to be viewed, ensuring complete confidentiality was not a problem. The mansion is surrounded by a forest and a large territory, which guarantee absolute peace and solitude, hiding the actor's private life from the prying eyes of passers-by and neighbors.
The house has 2 full floors and an attic space, where there are: 5 spacious bedrooms (four of them have comfortable bathrooms); several living rooms and a hall with designer furniture; an eclectic dining room for 10 people; modern kitchen with an island and a bar counter for tea drinking and socializing in an informal setting; library; multimedia room; gym; sauna; several bathrooms, dressing rooms, utility rooms and four balconies. The interior design in all rooms is minimalistic - exclusive accessories in limited quantities, expensive furniture in neutral colors (the only exceptions are spectacular armchairs and sofas in the living room), paintings by famous artists and indoor flowers.
The adjacent territory will satisfy the lovers of outdoor recreation 100%. The patio, which has an exit from the living room, will delight you with a summer dining area, garden furniture and a swimming pool. The rest of the land has been ennobled by professional landscape designers who have created a delightful garden, green lawns, flower beds and alleys among wild trees. There is also a fairly spacious garage for 4 cars at once.
The location of the estate is also worth noting. Given the popularity among the famous and powerful of this world, there are several golf courses, tennis courts, elite restaurants and boutiques of famous brands on the territory of the settlement. Plus, the town is located next to the expressway, so stars and millionaires can very quickly get to London by luxury cars. And the fact that English Beverly Hills is located in a natural area will be an additional bonus for lovers of a quiet and measured life in the fresh air, surrounded by famous neighbors.
According to Novate.ru, Antonio Banderas decided to sell one of his most comfortable houses only because after a heart attack he returns to his homeland in Spain, where he has already opened a theater, which takes a lot of money and time. For his estate, the star owner asks for 3.5 million euros, which is quite an acceptable price for such a property in the UK.
Another Hollywood star John Travolta sells luxury real estate, but already on a private island, where he lived for over 30 years. So what forced the famous actor in a hurry to get rid of a luxurious mansion on the azure coast of the Atlantic Ocean with its own beach and pier?
