Eva Longoria sells Tom Cruise’s Former Home and Accepts a Huge Loss
It took almost two years and a significant price cut and finally, Eva Longoria, was able to find a buyer for her Hollywood Hills compound and is all set to bid farewell to the celeb-pedigreed house. According to Los Angeles Times, the executive producer and Grand Hotel actress sold her massive 2.75-acre possession for a lump sum of $8.25 million.
The initial asking price of the home was $14 million; as the actress and her soul mate, Jose Baston, paid $11.4 million in 2015, when they bought the estate from Tom Cruise.
Inspiring interior settings
The compound is established at the end of a long driveway just behind the extra-high-security entryways. Architect Mark Rios, substantially upgraded and refurnished the three-bedroom main compound under the ownership of the couple.
In 2017, Longoria talked about the renovations done in her house and said that everything about her home revolves around functionality. She further added by saying that her house works as a house, and not as a museum. That is why Mark put all of his efforts into making the house elevated and sophisticated, hence efficient.
While looking from the interior front, her home currently mirrors her dream of how much she wanted it to look like a modern farmhouse. The walls of the main house are made with Venetian plaster, while the floor is coated with wide-plan oak, and the ceilings are impressed by cathedral style.
Details to take your breath away
While having a look at the second floor, there is a master suite present that holds the privilege of having its own fireplace and opens out onto the balcony. While standing on the balcony, one can feel the city right underneath and can enjoy unhampered views of the valley. The estate also encompasses other properties, including a stone cottage, two magnificently built studios, a four-bedroom custom-built guesthouse.
A tidal pool fed continuously by waterfalls boasts about its own bridge walkway. Other aspects of the property are the presence of numerous gardens and various lookouts. The compound has a corner trellis-topped patio, which is a perfect place if anyone wants to eat outside of the main house.
Baston and Longoria, as of now, are settled into another sprawling west coast mansion that encompasses an area of 11,018 square foot. The couple paid $13.5 million for the 8-bedroom property.
