It was just 2011 when Will Smith, wife Jada Pinkett Smith, as well as their kids Trey, Willow, and Jaden posed in Architectural Digest showing off their mega-mansion in Malibu. It isn’t your ordinary Hollywood home. According to the Daily Mail it took the couple seven years to put together their dream home, and the end result is definitely a dream. They have custom-made furniture, gazebos, bronze fireplaces, bronze and leather chandeliers and secret nooks and crannies, all inspired by things in places like Morocco and Africa. The 25,000 square foot home was a labor of love as Jada told the magazine:
“For Will and me this home was always a spiritual endeavor. We’re very earthy, organic people. We wanted to create a family retreat, something made by hand and as natural as possible, something that ties back to the land.”
But after seven years of building and only two years of actually living in the palatial palace, the couple are putting the home up for sale. According to the Daily Mail, it’s on the market for $42 million, and this comes after they also sold their Hawaiian vacation home for $20 million last year. Seeing as how they’re getting rid of their second home in two years, not sure if this means they’re making a move to another part of the country, or as the Daily Mail tried to speculate, if they’re possibly having trouble in paradise like folks were speculating all last year. Let’s hope the latter isn’t the case.
Not sure what all this is about or what it means (because folks do sell homes every day), but the home was definitely a beauty. Check out more images of it below as we imagine ourselves in it…but for a MUCH lower price.
