In 2017, the famed Hollywood star purchased a contemporary mansion in Clearwater, Florida for $3 million under Hawker Investment Trust, Travolta and his late wife Kelly Preston’s go-to trust in which his sisters are listed as trustees. Located a mere mile from the Scientology headquarters, Travolta has served as a devout member of the controversial Church of Scientology since 1975. Clearwater also provides residence to fellow Scientologists Tom Cruise, who lives in a downtown penthouse, and Kirstie Alley, who owns a multi-residence waterfront compound.
Now, Travolta is bidding farewell to his former Florida home for $4 million. The property was initially listed in March for $4.65 million but nonetheless, the 67-year-old actor is walking away with a profit. This sale comes about a year following the passing of his late wife Kelly Preston in their home due to breast cancer. In January 2020, Travolta sold his $18 million Spanish-style mansion in Los Angeles and earlier this year, parted ways with his longtime waterfront residence in Maine for $5 million. He currently owns a $2.65 million Calabasas home which he purchased with Preston in 2019.
Travolta’s former Florida home spans more than an acre of picturesque land and includes five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. The open floor interior presents a modern two-story staircase and spacious foyer. The living area is equipped with an electric fireplace. The kitchen offers bar seating and a breakfast space. Upstairs, the primary suite features an ensuite bathroom with a contemporary encased spa bath and a terrace overlooking the harbor. Other luxe amenities of the home include a seaside infinity-edge pool, a separate one-room cabana, and an artist’s studio with a bath. Resting on the western shores of Clearwater Harbor, the waterfront estate is heavily gated and surrounded by foliage. The exterior space consists of an expansive boat dock and boasts panoramic views of the gleaming coast and skyline.
