Nearly two years after listing the property for an ambitious $30 million, Jeff Bridges and his wife, Susan, have found a buyer for their enormous Montecito estate. The Los Angeles Times reports that the actor, known for his roles in The Last Picture Show and The Big Lebowski, has sold the home for $15.93 million.
That’s significantly less than the initial asking price, but represents a very nice profit over the $7 million or so the actor reportedly paid for the 19.5-acre property (known as Villa Santa Lucia) in 1994, when he acquired it from none other than soft rocker Kenny Loggins
The compound includes a 9,535-square-foot Mediterranean-style mansion and accompanying 1,800-square foot guest house, along with a smaller guest house, a movie theater and recording studio, and a swimming pond.
Susan Bridges told the Wall Street Journal back in 2015 that the grounds around the home also include a hammock-equipped “fort” where the famously low-key Bridges “occasionally makes pottery.”
Vineyards, fruit trees, and hiking trails cover much of the rest of the property.
The main house has six bedrooms and six-and-a-half bathrooms to go along with an open living space on the main level, a library, and even a meditation room (naturally).
Meanwhile, at an undisclosed location nearby, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi are still searching for a buyer for an even larger Italianate mansion in Montecito. Asking price for that home is a hefty $45 million.
