For those of you in the market for some new and super Swank-y real estate, you're in luck because Hollywood’s "Million Dollar Baby", Hilary Swank, has just listed her Pacific Palisades million dollar mansion (well $9.495 million) for sale.
Known for Oscar-winning portrayals of undeniably strong women, this A-list actress remains one of the few left in Hollywood that actually tries to AVOID the tabloids and limelight. After viewing this 6,700-square-foot abode, her desire to remain unseen suddenly makes sense – who would ever want to leave their home when it looks like this?
This Los Angeles mansion was originally purchased by Swank in 2007 after she reportedly began dating talent agent John Campisisi. Now, according to the latest gossip, she has decided to put the house on the market because of the couples recent split last month.
Despite the unfortunate circumstances, we cannot help but drool over this ocean-view Mediterranean-style mansion. Built in 1928 and restored by the Santa Monica and Santa Barbara-based architects Mark Appleton & Associates, alongside NYC designer Mark Zeff, this striking Southern California property is far from the trailer parks of her humble beginnings.
Six spacious bedrooms and seven bathrooms are just the start for this California dream home as it also features a backyard area with a saltwater swimming pool, a private spa, and a poolside cabana. Adjacent to the pool (which has picturesque views of the LA skyline) is an outdoor kitchen and barbecue station with a dining area that seems perfect for hosting rousing get-togethers or for a relaxing dinner with your family.
For an even more panoramic view, make your way up to the top floor which has an open-air terrace that overlooks the beautiful backyard and Pacific Ocean. Looking for something more intimate? Enjoy the outdoor fireplace that's surrounded by lush green plants and comfortable lounge furniture.
Once you make your way indoors you will be greeted with ornate iron wrought gates, inviting hardwood floors and a distinctive chandelier. The open-plan kitchen features a center island and modern appliances, along with a wood beamed ceiling, which leads into a roomy breakfast area with a large built-in banquette.
With a lower level made up of a lounge, complete with a state-of-the-art surround sound theater that seats up to 17 guests and furnished with custom leather recliners, you can assume that there's never a dull moment within this celebrity home.
