Sylvester Stallone is looking to knock out a sale of his desert getaway. The actor has placed his La Quinta, CA, home on the market for $3.35 million.
However, the transaction might be somewhat of a gut punch to his wallet. Stallone, who is 73, purchased the home in 2010 for $4.5 million. So even at full ask, he stands to lose on the investment.
The nearly 4,900-square-foot home will definitely be a winner for the buyer lucky enough to snag it. Built in 2008, the villa opens with heavy wood double doors onto a vaulted ceiling entryway.
The layout includes four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, and a double-height living room with a stone fireplace. The formal dining room opens out to a terrace.
The floor plan also includes a wine room and a powder room.
The spacious kitchen has a large wood and stone island. Upstairs, a master suite includes a disappearing flatscreen TV, perfect for catching your favorite Stallone flick.
In addition, the spacious place has a fireplace as well as a private terrace. The master bathroom offers dual vanities and a tub.
Architectural details include arched entryways and beamed ceilings. While the home has been emptied of personal items, a couple of reminders are still in place, including a cool “Rambo” movie poster and a painting possibly created by the owner.
Outside are multiple terraces, a pool, an outdoor kitchen and dining area, and a built-in fire pit.
The relaxing retreat backs up to a burbling creek. Golf fans will appreciate that it is located inside the exclusive Madison Club.
The club’s privacy and excellent links have proved a draw for celebs. Randy Gerber and Cindy Crawford purchased a place at the club last year.
“The half-acre property’s outdoor space includes lush plant life, including palms, a pool, spa, and terraces,” says the listing agent, Josh Reef with Douglas Elliman.
He notes that its lot is the largest of all of the villas on the property.
Praising the villa for its “privacy, peace of mind, and safety,” he describes the offering as a once-in-a-lifetime chance at a property “once owned by a legend, for a legendary price.”
“The architecture is timeless, just like the current homeowner,” he says.
Stallone is best known for his iconic role in “Rocky,” made in 1976, which he wrote himself. The film spawned multiple sequels, as well as the spin-off “Creed.” The A-lister also wrote or co-wrote and starred in both the “Rambo” and “The Expendables” franchises.
