Eva Longoria Bids Adieu to this French-style Villa She Bought from Tom Cruise
After five years of owning it, American actress, producer, and businesswoman Eva Longoria has said “adieu” to this sprawling Hollywood Hills compound. According to the Los Angeles Times, the 2.75-acre property was sold for $8.25 million. That is significantly less than the original price it was listed for, which was at $14 million.
The 45-year-old Grand Hotel star and her husband, Mexican businessman José Antonio Bastón, were able to purchase the property from Mission Impossible star Tom Cruise in 2015 for $11.4 million. They have since made renovations to the place with the help of architect Mark Rios.
According to Longoria, she wanted the renovations to focus on functionality. She wanted a house that is useful and not just resembles a museum. It had to be a balance between sophistication and functionality.
The interior of the 3-bedroom main house is a reflection of the Desperate Housewives star’s vision of a modern farmhouse. It is decked with cathedral-style ceilings, Venetian plaster walls, and wide-plank oak floors.
The master suite is located on the second floor of the house. It boasts of a fireplace and a terrace that offers unobstructed views of the city and valley below.
Aside from the main house, there are also other accommodations in their sprawling estate. This includes a guesthouse with four bedrooms, two studios, and a stone cottage. There is also a pool resembling a lagoon that comes complete with waterfalls and a bridge walkway. The estate also boasts a variety of lookouts and gardens, as well as an alfresco dining area.
Longoria, her husband, and their son, Santiago Enrique Bastón, live in another massive estate, but this time located in Beverly Crest. They bought the 11,018-square-foot mansion for $13.5 million in 2017, around the time Longoria was reported to be pregnant with their first child together.
Longoria is most known for her role in the TV series Desperate Housewives, in which she played Gabrielle Solis from 2004 to 2012. She then starred in the NBC sitcom, Telenovela, in 2015. Longoria has also ventured into producing and was the executive producer of the show Devious Maids and the documentaries Food Chains and The Harvest. She recently starred in the movie Sylvie’s Love in 2020 and is set to appear in the upcoming film titled All-Star Weekend.
Aside from her showbiz work, Longoria has also opened restaurants called Beso. In the fall of 2016, she launched a women’s apparel collection in collaboration with sportswear brand Sunrise Brands. She also launched her clothing line website in 2017.
