Apparently it takes a village to contain Johnny Depp. The actor has put his estate in Plan de la Tour, France, on the market at close to $26 million.
About 17 miles from Saint Tropez, the 37-acre property includes an entire Provencal village of stone-built houses dating back more than 200 years.
“The Pirates of the Caribbean” film series star has used the retreat as his family getaway. Since buying the property in 2001, he has restored and decorated the homes one by one, spending more than $10 million on improvements.
He converted a church to a guesthouse and installed a wine-tasting cave that looks like a set from “Pirates.”
The more than one dozen structures include a main house, several guest cottages, a chapel, a bar and restaurant, a workshop/garage and a staff house. The 10,760 square feet of Bohemian-style living space contains more than 12 bedrooms and 12 bathrooms.
Other living spaces include a hunter’s cabin, a painter’s studio where Depp worked, a children’s playroom and a gym.
The acreage is marked by gently sloping grounds with vineyards, olive trees, a vegetable garden, fountains, a large swimming pool surrounded by sand, a smaller swimming pool and a skateboard area.
Depp, 52, has starred in more than 50 major motion pictures, including "Edward Scissorhands," "Benny and Joon" and “Donnie Brasco.” He gained recognition among television viewers in the 1980s series "21 Jump Street." The versatile actor will star in the upcoming films “Black Mass,” “London Fields” and “Yoga Hosers.”
Furniture and the star’s personal belongings will be included in the sale.
