The current owner, Jonathan Brooks, a hedge fund executive who founded Smithwood Partners, bought the home after the actress and actor were divorced in 2006. The famous Hollywood couple purchased the 12,000-square-foot home for USD 31 million back in 2001. What ensued then was a lengthy three years to renovate the home. The astounding property offers heated marble floors, bar rooms where wooden floors are imported from a 200-year-old French castle.

Therefore, the 1930s home emanates a Gallic vibe, or what the couple might call it as a “French Normandy Revival property”. The commodious property has four bedrooms, a spacious swimming pool, a tennis court and verdant outdoor spaces. The property is currently marketed by Susan Smith of Hilton & Hyland.
