As a counter-point to some of the rougher, iconic film characters he has portrayed over a nearly 50-year film career, notably Rocky Balboa and John Rambo, Sylvester Stallone’s softer artistic side seen through his paintings (displayed in galleries and museums around the world) as well as an impeccable taste in terms of architecture and interior decor are on full display with the sale of his golf club home in La Quinta, CA.

Listed for $3.35 million USD, this is a stunning custom home Stallone built in 2008, with elegant decor, four bedrooms, five bathrooms, 4,889 square feet influenced by his Italian ancestry with its Old World Mediterranean style and Caribbean Island touches throughout – double-wooden front doors, walled patio entry, inside rooms that open to the outdoors, vaulted foyer, an arched entrance into a two-storey, and beamed-ceiling living room with fireplace.

Meals can be enjoyed in a more formal dining room that opens to the rear terrace, and a large eat-in island kitchen. Other features include coved ceilings and arched entryways between rooms and floors of hardwood and tile. There is a wine room and outdoor kitchen on private terraces. The master suite has a fireplace and television that rises at the foot of the bed, large master bath, dressing room, and another private terrace with views of the mountains.

Outside, past the fire pit, is a beautiful pool and spa, lush garden, water features and a rock-strewn flowing stream that runs across the property. La Quinta, in suburban Los Angeles, has been the host city for many prestigious golf tournaments over the years.

The listing agent is Josh Reef of Douglas Elliman, Beverly Hills. Thanks to these guys for the celebrity luxury real estate story tip.
