The estranged celebrity couple Melanie Griffith and Antonio Banderas have sold their Los Angeles mansion for a cool $15.947 million. Just a bit short of $16 million, the estate boasts of being a part of the most expensive sale ever for a single-family home in the affluent neighborhood.
The former family home, called Isidor Eisner estate, of the 57 years old American actress and 54 year old Spanish actor is located at Hancock Park.Along with a piece of Hollywood history, the 1.5 acres property is also home to a 15,000 square foot mansion. Designed by Hoover Dam architect Gordon B. Kaufman in 1925, the Italian Revival-style mansion features seven bedrooms and seven full and three half bathrooms. It also includes a sprawling, celebrity-style master suite with two bathrooms and double dressing rooms.The double-gated mansion also opens to a grand entry, double-height banquet hall, formal dining room with coffered ceiling, paneled library and a two-story kitchen.Additional features include a recording studio, fitness room, a guest/staff apartment, extensive security system and a swimming pool set privately in a central courtyard.The actors bought the home in 1999 for $4.2 million and in 2000, the duo bought the property next door and demolished the house to add to the grounds of their estate.
