Sylvester Stallone has recently put his lavish La Quinta, California mansion on the market for what seems an entirely reasonable $3.35 million. If you want to take a look around, read on…
Stallone, who isn’t just a cinematic icon, but an accomplished artist (his work has hung in art museums and galleries in the United States, France, Russia and Switzerland) with an eye for interior design – you won’t won’t find any Rambo camo on display. He’s decided to hang on to his bi-coastal residences in Los Angeles and Coconut Grove in Miami, but his golf club home is a stunning property for buyers who want a Hollywood backstory.
The home was built by Stallone in 2008, in La Quinta’s golfing community of Madison Club…
A suburb in Los Angeles, La Quinta may be renowned for its golf courses today, but it’s also where Frank Capra wrote the screenplay for Lost Horizons in 1937, apparently while lounging poolside at the La Quinta Resort & Club (we like his style).
The home was built by Stallone in 2008, in La Quinta’s golfing community of Madison Club.
This four-bedroom, five-bathroom, 4,889-square-foot home boasts an Old World Mediterranean style, while Caribbean Island touches including double-wooden front doors and walled patio entry.
Enhancing the sense of space are inside rooms that open to the outdoors, and a vaulted foyer. An arched entrance leads into a two-story, beamed-ceiling living room with a fireplace. Feature attractions include coved ceilings, arched entryways between rooms and floors of hardwood and tile.
Meals can be served in the more formal dining room that opens to the rear terrace, or a variety of other locations, including a spacious eat-in island kitchen, outdoor dining spaces and courtyard. Wander out past the firepit and across the terrace and you’ll find the pool and spa. Water features and a rock-strewn flowing stream run across the property.
Sly clearly likes to entertain. There’s a wine room and outdoor kitchen on private terraces.
The master suite has a fireplace, a TV that rises at the foot of the bed, championship-sized master bath, dressing room and another private terrace with long-distance views to the mountains.
La Quinta has been the host city for a number of big-name golf tournaments over the years including The American Express, formerly known as the Bob Hope Desert Classic.
In you move in, you’ll be able to name Kanye and Kim Kardashian-West, Tom Brady and Kylie Jenner as neighbours
