Michael Douglas is selling his sprawling Spanish mansion in Majorca for £26 million – and he's narrated an impressive Hollywood-style trailer to accompany the listing of his home.
The American actor and producer first purchased S’Estaca back in 1990 and has been living there ever since with his wife, actress Catherine Zeta Jones – but the couple have been unable to sell the villa for the last five years. It was first put on the market in 2014 for £49 million, and now it's up for sale for almost half the original asking price.
'When I first saw S'Estaca, I also fell under it's spell,' said Michael in the short video, explaining that he is looking for a new owner because 'my life has taken a new course, and now it is time for me to let someone else enjoy the privilege and the adventure of S’Estaca'.
The beautiful property, which spans 750 acres of land, is situated in the heart the UNESCO world heritage site of Serra de Tramuntana, surrounded by crystal-clear waters and lush greenery.
Made up of seven separate buildings, there is plenty of room for a new family to move in right away. Inside, the interiors are dramatic and charming. The main living area has sky-blue sofas, a large brass chandelier, stone flooring and wooden beams across the ceiling.
The bathroom is as grand as can be. A large free-standing bath made from antique marble will catch your eye as you first walk in. Wooden cabinets (some which are mirrored) create a rich and dramatic feel. Plus, there's even an open fire just in case you wanted some additional warmth while bathing.
Other standout features include large stone fireplaces, a large cellar, home cinema, dressing rooms, a spring water well, outdoor bathing area, marble-lined swimming pool and picture-perfect views. Every corner of the home is so beautiful it's no wonder Michael fell in love with it when he first bought it over 20 years ago.
Previously, the villa belonged to the Archduke Luis Salvador of Austria back in 1878, so it is steeped in plenty of history. And you'll be sure to see this throughout the property, too. Outside you will find thousand-year-old olive trees, palm trees, almond trees and luscious fruit trees.
Fancy living here? The property is currently on the market for €28.9 million (£26 million) via Engelvoelkers.
