Sylvester Stallone's mansion on market for £2.7million - take the video tour
Got $3.35 million - that’s £2.7 million - going spare? Then you could put in a bid for Hollywood A-lister Sylvester Stallone’s Californian mansion.
The star of the Rocky, Rambo and Expendable movies has put his golf club home in La Quinta on the market.
La Quinta, in suburban Los Angeles, is famous for its abundance of golf courses and where Frank Capra wrote the screenplay for Lost Horizons in 1937 while lounging poolside at the La Quinta Resort & Club.

Stallone’s four-bedroom, five-bath, 4,889-square-foot home choice was likely influenced by his Italian ancestry with its Old World Mediterranean style and Caribbean Island touches including double-wooden front doors and walled patio entry.
Inside rooms open to the outdoors, there is vaulted foyer,n arched entrance into two-storey, beamed-ceiling living room with fireplace, as well as multiple conversation areas.
Dinners can be enjoyed in the more formal dining room that opens to the back terrace or in a number of other locations from the large eat-in island kitchen to the outdoor dining spaces and courtyard.
Attractive features include coved ceilings and arched entryways between rooms with floors of hardwood and tile. A classic home for entertaining, there is a wine room and outdoor kitchen on private terraces.
Upstairs, the master suite has a fireplace, a television that rises at the foot of the bed, large master bath, dressing room and another private terrace with long-distance views to the mountains.
Outside past the firepit and just steps off the terrace across the grass is a lovely pool and spa, lush plantings, water features and rock-strewn flowing stream that runs across the property.
La Quinta has been the host city for a number of prestigious golf tournaments over the years including annually the American Express, formerly known as the Bob Hope Desert Classic.
La Quinta is a celebrity hot spot and has attracted residents such as Kanye and Kim Kardashian-West, Tom Brady and Kylie Jenner.
An actor, director and screenwriter, Stallone is also a prolific painter whose work has been displayed in art museums and galleries in the United States, France, Russia and Switzerland.
His most recent movie Rambo: Last Blood, in which he takes on a Mexican drug cartel, opened last autumn with box office sales of more than $91 million so far.
