If you’ve got a little extra cash laying around and want to treat yourself to something extravagant, how about laying down the scratch to purchase the ridiculously over-the-top estate currently on the market belonging to Hulk Hogan’s ex-wife, Linda Hogan?
The former Mrs. Hulk Hogan bought the sprawling estate back in 2010 for $3.5 million out of the massive settlement she received in their divorce — which included more than 70 percent of Hulk’s liquid assets (which equalled about $10.41 million total), as well as a 40 percent stake in Hulk’s various companies, and a $3 million property settlement. If you’re keeping count, that amounted to around $7.44 million from the liquid assets alone. Linda Hogan also got to keep an assorted array of cars: a Mercedes-Benz, a Cadillac Escalade, a Corvette, and a Rolls-Royce.
The home Mrs. Hogan is selling is being listed by Coldwell Banker Previews International, who describe it as a “celebrity compound.”
“Be king or queen of the hill at the spectacular Linda Hogan private gated celebrity compound at Wood Ranch in Simi Valley. Located behind two sets of gates on 23+ acres with 360 degree valley, mountain & Wood Ranch Country Club & Golf Course. This estate was completely remodeled, turn-key in the last few years and has a 6300 sq. ft, main residence re-done to perfection with every possible luxury amenity a buyer could want including Crestron system & security cameras.”
Aside from the luxury amenities, the former Hogan Knows Best star’s home also includes all the necessities every home must have, like a gym, an “award-winning” pool complete with waterslide, waterfalls, and an alcove, a jacuzzi, and a helicopter pad — you know, for when a Rolls-Royce just won’t do, and a private jet would look silly parked in your back yard.
Hulk’s ex describes her mansion as “like always being on vacation… I love to walk the dogs around the lake…. I can pick a few avocados, oranges or grapes along the way. ” She’s not being facetious either. There is a working orchard on the property that produces 60,000 pounds of avocados a year, as well as a small vineyard that grows Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Taking a stroll along the property will also bring you to the one-acre private lake that boasts its own nature reserve that is home to Koi fish, catfish, and turtles.
Today describes Linda Hogan’s mansion as a “five-bedroom, five-bath Tuscan-style villa [that has] a dining room with a fireplace decked out with a hand-carved wood mantle, a courtyard that fits a 13-foot table and a master suite with a large balcony overlooking the valley.” If you need a 13-foot table in the courtyard, then obviously the helicopter pad is necessary. There is also a 300-foot long fully protected dog run with a fenced play area with separate enclosure off the main house for all you dog lovers out there.
So, how much will Lady Hulk Hogan’s mansion set you back, brother? Only $5.5 million. But when you consider it has its own helicopter landing, it’s obviously worth it. Seriously, helicopter landing!
