Johnny Depp puts entire French village up for sale

Hot Property | Johnny Depp

Sometimes it takes a village. For Johnny Depp, make that an entire village.

The actor has put his “estate” in Plan de la Tour, France, on the market at close to $26 million.

About 17 miles from Saint Tropez, the 37-acre property includes a complete Provencal village of stone-built houses dating back more than 200 years.

Since buying the property in 2001, Depp has restored and decorated the homes one by one, spending more than $10 million on improvements.

He converted a church to a guesthouse and installed a wine-tasting cave that looks like a set from “The Pirates of the Caribbean” film series. The star has used the retreat as his family getaway

Hot Property | Johnny Depp
Actor Johnny Depp has listed his 37-acre estate in Plan de la Tour, France, for sale at close to $26 million.
The more than one dozen structures include a main house, several guest cottages, a chapel, a bar and restaurant, a workshop/garage and a staff house. The 10,760-square-foot Bohemian-style living space contains more than 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.

A hunter’s cabin, a painter’s studio where Depp worked, a children’s playroom and a gym are among other living spaces.

The acreage is marked by gently sloping grounds with vineyards, olive trees, a vegetable garden, fountains, a large swimming pool surrounded by sand, a smaller swimming pool and a skateboard area.

Depp, 52, has starred in more than 50 major motion pictures, including “Edward Scissorhands,” “Benny and Joon” and “Donnie Brasco.” He gained recognition among television viewers in the 1980s series “21 Jump Street.” The versatile actor will star in the upcoming films “Black Mass,” “London Fields” and “Yoga Hosers.”

Furniture and the star’s personal belongings will be included in the sale.

Côte d’Azur Sotheby’s International Realty is the listing agent. Tony Mark of Sotheby’s International Realty in Malibu was the referring agent.

5 Remodels That Make Good Resale Value Sense — and 5 That Don’t

Check out this amazing article from Houzz.com, written by:

Repeat after me: I am the master of my remodel. Perhaps you should say it again, because sadly, it’s not always so. Remodels sometimes have a tendency to develop their own inertia, as decisions lead to new dilemmas, unintended consequences and surprising outcomes. In some cases, these flights of fancy are perfectly acceptable, provided the design and completed execution truly align with the vision and budget.

But if your budget is a concern, and the wise investment of limited home improvement dollars matters, then there are a few basic guidelines you should familiarize yourself with before planning your remodel. Today we review five remodels that typically make good financial sense, providing a nice return on the investment at the time of resale — and five that don’t.


The best part of my job

As a working mother, it can be hard to juggle all the work and time needed to parent.

But the one thing I love most about my job, is that I can do the work anywhere!

This morning, I’m negotiating a deal, completing paperwork, and scheduling appointments, all while watching my son’s baseball game! I’m connecting  with my community, supporting my son and enjoying this gorgeous sunshine.

I love my job!
