‘True Blood’ House for Sale for $35 Million
The home featured in True Blood, La Villa Contenta, has hit the market for $35 million.
It sits on 1.52 acres in Malibu -- but if you want the entire 8-acre parcel, it'll cost a cool $75 million, Yahoo! Real Estate reports.
The home, which served as the fictional abode to vampire Sophie-Anne Leclerq (played by Evan Rachel Wood), was also up for rent this summer for $250,000 a month.
La Villa Contenta is owned by real estate developer Richard E. Weintraub, who runs Weintraub Financial Services Inc. , and his wife, Liane, who rented it out while they traveled. They're reportedly building another mansion nearby.
The three-story, 12,045 home overlooking the Pacific Ocean contains four bedrooms and 8.5 baths. It also has a screening room, gym, tennis courts, and a guest house with two maid's quarters, loggias, decks and landscaping. It also has glass ceilings and walls lined with 500,000 seashells.
True Blood’s production designer Suzuki Ingerslev says of taping there: "After all the location scouting I have done over the years, in my opinion, nothing even comes close to the amount of detail that went into this pool house. We all just stood there and took the room in the first time we went there, and pictures don’t even begin to do it justice. The statues, chandeliers, chair rail and ceilings are all made out of a variety of various sizes of seashells and corals. It is astounding, and we could never accomplish this on our budget, and time frame. It is truly breathtaking and exquisite."
