Henry Cavill Buys $5 Million Mansion Near Hollywood

Just a few months ago, before the summer of 2013 began, not many in the US knew who Henry Cavill was, he could walk around mostly undetected, except for a few loyal fans that followed him around. Things have certainly changed for the handsome Brit. Now we hear he has bought a $5 million mansion to escape it all.

It seems a bit extravagant, but in California real estate is not cheap, not by a long shot. At the equivalent of roughly $5.5 million, Henry’s new mansion is certainly private.

The home is located on a remote area of the shores of Lake Sherwood, about 20 minutes away from Hollywood, where work is for him when he’s in the US.

Henry Cavill is said to be “blown away” by the futuristic look of his new home. He has been looking for a more permanent base than the apartment he has been living in for the past 18 months, while promoting Man Of Steel in which he plays Superman.

The four bedroom home reportedly has a movie room (very appropriate), floor-to-ceiling windows to enjoy the lake view, a dock, a pool, and guest quarters for when friends and family visit.

Henry decided to buy the property after signing a multiple movie deal with Warner Bros. for a possible Man Of Steel franchise. If the movies do well, he is signed for up to five films in which he would portray Superman/Clark Kent.

According to a friend the new place fits Henry’s needs perfectly, since he’s been looking to find a more private place to avoid paparazzi and fans that follow his every move.

The 30-year-old British actor, who is single by the way ladies, said that he blames the public life he leads for his recent romantic break ups with actresses Gina Carano and Kaley Cuoco.

“Some days you feel there’s really no escape from being under the Hollywood microscope 24/7. I’m hoping to find a place that gives me the luxury of a little more peace and quiet than I’ve been used to of late.” Henry Cavill stated.
