Actor Nicolas Cage -- he of the many houses on multiple continents -- has placed his nine-bedroom, English manor-style mansion in Los Angeles' Bel-Air area back on the market for a reduced asking price of $29,999,000 after it had been on the market last year for $35,000,000.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on Cage's new asking price for the 11,817-square-foot mansion, which was built in 1940 and which has nine baths, high ceilings, a theater, a custom wine cellar, a game room, an Olympic-sized pool and a circular driveway with a fountain, according to public records and listing information. The mansion sits on almost exactly one acre (a 43,116-square-foot lot, to be precise), according to public records.
The mansion came back on the market on September 3. Cage (shown here with wife Alice Cage) had pulled the house from the market last December, as we had noted on December 29, 2007. The mansion has an amazing celebrity pedigree, having been owned from 1974 until 1998 by crooner Tom Jones, who sold it to Cage in March '98 for $6,469,000, according to public records (and not the 'around $7 million' amount that we have incorrectly used in previous posts). Prior to that, the mansion had been owned by Dean Martin. Check out an online listing sheet for Cage's mansion -- complete with photos.
