Academy Award winner Jack Nicholson has put his property in Malibu, California up for sale for US$4.25 million.
The ranch style property was built in 1966 on a twenty eight acre plot and includes three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a separate guest house, a tennis court, a cabana, a putting green, a swimming pool and a spa.
The seventy nine year old actor bought the property in 1977 and has now decided it’s time for a change.
Located in a secluded mountainous area of California, the property features mountain views to the north and views of the Pacific Ocean at the rear.
The interiors have a rustic theme with exposed beams, wood panelled ceilings and two hundred and fourteen square metres of living space. In fact, the property is very modest for such a high profile, A-list celebrity, having been described as “bland at best” by some.
It is not clear where Nicholson will move next but, given his extensive property portfolio, he won’t be short of choice.
Nicholson owns a four lot compound in Beverley Hills, a two bedroom home in Cahuenga Pass, Los Angeles, three properties in Aspen, Colorado and a five bedroom home in Kailua, Hawaii.
The veteran actor’s career spans five decades during which he has received a total of twelve nominations for Oscars; eight for Best Actor and four for Best Supporting Actor. He is to date the most nominated male actor in Academy Awards history, winning the Best Actor category for his roles in ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’ in 1975 and ‘As Good As It Gets’ in 1997.
Although who can forget his deranged character Jack Torrance in Stephen King’s The Shining in 1980?
Only Nicholson and British actor Michael Caine have been nominated for acting role Oscars in five different decades.
Despite his age it seems the Hollywood star has no intention of retiring; he has just finished filming his latest movie ‘Americana’ which is set in the 1860s in America’s Confederate South. The movie tells the story of a farmer and a slave owner who flee the American Civil War for Brazil. Nicholson plays the lead Edgar Johnson.
