Melanie Griffith has a new place to call home now that she’s unloaded the mansion she owned with ex-husband Antonio Banderas. The actress is reportedly renting a new estate in Los Angeles for a hefty monthly price. What’s the scoop on Griffith’s current pad?
Variety reports that Melanie Griffith’s new home is in the Outpost Estates area of Los Angeles. The home has a Mediterranean villa style and was built in the 1920s. The home has 4,725 square feet of space with four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. Griffith’s new place features numerous fireplaces, arched windows, wood beams and wrought iron gates.
The home also has a curved staircase and double-height rotunda in the entryway with formal dining and living rooms. The kitchen is a showstopper, it seems, with granite counter tops, high-end appliances and a pressed-tin ceiling. Griffith can also relax in the sunroom, den or movie theater and naturally there’s a luxurious master suite.
The home sits on a.28-acre hilltop spot with lush landscaping. Melanie will be able to relax with an outdoor fireplace, grilling station, sports court and, of course, there is a pool and cabana on the property as well.
Neighbors in the Outpost Estates area include Salma Hayek, Charlize Theron, Big Bang Star Johnny Galecki, Orlando Bloom, William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman along with Friends star Matthew Perry and Sex and the City actor Kyle MacLachlan.
Though Griffith and Banderas more than a year ago, they only listed their previous Los Angeles estate for sale this past spring. As was previously reported by the Inquisitr, their Hancock Park place was listed for $16.1 million. That home featured 15,000 square feet of space with 11 bathrooms and 13 bedrooms.
As TMZ notes, Griffth and Banderas sold the Hancock Hills estate for a record amount for the area and seemingly made out pretty well with the sale. Melanie’s new rental home is significantly smaller than her Hancock Hills home, but it doesn’t come with a cheap price tag. The site reports that she’ll pay in the neighborhood of $50,000 a month on a two-year lease.
Banderas and Griffith split last summer and finalized their divorce last month. Though they ended their 20-year relationship, they are still tied together by 18-year-old daughter Stella. In fact, the family was together for Stella’s high school graduation in June.
Though the couple has owned homes in several cities, it looks like Melanie Griffith’s mansion rental in Outpost Estates is where she plans to settle in and call home now that she’s officially divorced and moving ahead on her own.
