Now’s your chance to live like an Oscar winner. Tom Hanks, the legendary film actor famous for modern cinema classics like Saving Private Ryan, Cast Away, and Big has listed two adjacent estates in Pacific Palisades, California, for a combined $18 million, according to the New York Post and the Los Angeles Times. The actor is listing the two neighboring properties with his wife Rita Wilson, an actress who recently played a major guest role in the HBO show Girls.
While the two properties can be purchased as a set, they are as different as can be. One was built in a Spanish revival style, while the other is an English traditional construction. The two homes are also available for purchase individually. The Spanish-style home is asking $8.75 million, while the English traditional is asking for $9.25 million.
Provided the homes sell at their listing price, Hanks and Wilson stand to make a healthy profit. The couple purchased the two homes in 2003 and 2007 for a combined $13.1 million.
The 4,000-square-foot Spanish-style home, located at 1223 Amalfi Drive, was built in 1933 and features four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms. Elegant design touches include intricate ironwork, wood-beamed ceilings, a paneled dining room, and a sunken living room. Moving outside, the home features a fountain, well-maintained hedges, and various sitting areas that are perfect for entertaining.
The second home up for sale, the English traditional, was built in 1957 and is located at 1213 Amalfi Drive The home stands at a sprawling 7,300 square feet and features an impressive seven bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and a powder room. Amenities include an in-house pub and billiards room with a fireplace, a screening room, and formal living and dining rooms. Both the Spanish- and English-style estates offer picturesque canyon views.
Interestingly enough, the Hollywood power couple also owns a contiguous home on the same street, but that home is not up for sale.
