In Hollywood, each square foot of real estate space will cost you about a thousand bucks… And that’s a bargain!
Ryan Phillippe has dropped the price of his 7,447 square foot Hollywood Hills home from just under $7.5 million to just under $7 million. The discount proves that no matter how many iconic teen hits you’ve starred in (Cruel Intentions, anyone?), with this economy it's tough to sell a house.
The actor first put the house on the market for $7.45 million in 2010. He bought the house shortly after his divorce to Reese Witherspoon in 2008. The listing was removed in 2011.
Today, the house is listed for $6.995 million with real estate agent Billy Rose at The Agency.
According to Zillow Blog, Phillippe’s bargain house comes with the name “Rising Zen” for its Asian-modern fusion of style. The mansion features 5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, and a two-story gym. There’s a media room, an art studio, a koi pond (cause every baller needs one), an aquarium-themed bar, and spanning views of Los Angeles.
The indoor/outdoor design is perfect for the sophisticated Angeleno pretending to lead a surfer lifestyle. The outdoor space boasts a full kitchen, shower, sauna, and canopied fire pit. Of course there’s a sick built-in pool, which the house seems built around. The pool structure is fitted with underwater speakers (not that sound travels underwater anyway).
If you’re a Travolta-type and want to keep your home affairs private, the house also comes with “stoparazzi.” That’s a fancy term for high hedges and a start-of-the-art security system to keep photogs out.
But seriously… This pad is cool enough to sell your first born son for. Take a moment to peruse pictures the pics… You’ll have a hard time finding one room you don’t like!
