First Prev 1 2 3 4 5 Next Last

The Bermuda mansion owned by Hollywood superstars Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones is up for sale with a price tag of more than $10.6 million.

Mr Douglas is the son of Diana Dill, a Bermudian who became an actor and model in the US and who died last year and American movie legend Kirk Douglas.

He is also co-owner of the now-closed Ariel Sands cottage colony in Devonshire, which is scheduled for redevelopment.

The historic Warwick mansion boasts eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms, while the grounds of more than three acres contain a gated pool, a tennis court with covered viewing pavilion and an orchard.

Lyndy Thatcher, listed as the Rego Sotheby's International Realty agent for the sale, confirmed the property was listed this month, but declined further comment.

Mr Douglas and Ms Zeta-Jones bought the house, then a five-bedroom home, 15 years ago for a price understood to be around $2.5 million.

The listing on Rego SIR's website said: “This spectacular celebrity-owned, gated private estate, with stunning harbour views is a park-like oasis.

“The centrepiece of the property is a large elegant, yet informal, 1827 ivy-covered home.

“The beautifully restored main house has a large, spacious living room with fireplace, dining room, gourmet kitchen and children's suite containing two bedrooms, two bathrooms, music room and den.”

The upper level of the house boasts a huge master suite with views over Hamilton Harbour, plus a second en suite bedroom, office and large media room.

Outside, there are two 50ft cedar verandas, also offering harbour views.

The basement area has a gym, including shower, locker room, bath and sauna, as well as a storage area and commercial-size laundry room.

The grounds of the estate also contain a two-bedroom guest cottage, a 100-year-old apartment and a two-bedroom caretaker's cottage.
