Casa del Cielo, Estate of the Day
Today we are checking out Casa del Cielo, a beautiful estate on the Arroyo banks in Pasadena. The home was designed by architect Sylvanus Marston in 1923 in the Spanish Revival style. As the Wall Street Journal reported the home belongs to producer Gale Ann Hurd and screenwriter Jonathan Hensleigh, two people with a penchant for action/adventure movies who have a sedately lovely home. They bought the house for $5.2 million in 2001 and have renovated and restored the home while keeping its uniquely exotic style. The home has seven bedrooms, a gourmet kitchen, ornate fireplaces, ceilings with murals and pressed metal tile details,a bar, billiard room, super fantastic library, media room, gym and wine cellar. The home's three acres include gardens, terraces, a lagoon, fountains, pools, a tennis court and a guest house. This home is listed at $15 million. After the jump, their movies may be over the top but their renovation instincts are just right.
