Martial arts film star's Marina del Rey trophy home hits the market

Jean-Claude Van Damme, of martial arts film fame, has listed his Marina del Rey home for sale at $9.999 million.

The custom home sits on a canal with cityscape and ocean views. The more than 7,500 square feet of living space on three stories contains a home theater, a gym, a wine cellar and an elevator.

The master-bedroom suite has dual bathrooms for a total of six bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. There are five interior fireplaces and one outside.

A rooftop deck with a pool offers 360-degree vistas.

Van Damme, 54, is a martial artist, actor and film producer and director. The Belgian kickboxer and bodybuilder will star next year in the film "Kickboxer: Vengeance." He is known for his roles in "Until Death" (2007), "Double Impact" (1991) and "Bloodsport" (1988).

"The Muscles From Brussels," as he is nicknamed, bought the property in 2012 for $6 million.

Shaun Hurley of First Team Real Estate is the listing agent.

A lookout tower and secret garden

Actor Jeff Bridges and his wife, Susan, have listed their estate in the Montecito foothills for $29.5 million.

Gates on the 19.5-acre property open to a long driveway that crosses a stream and ends at a circular stone-paved motor court.

Set amid mature olive trees, oaks and Italian cypress is a 9,535-square-foot, Tuscany-inspired house designed by Santa Barbara architect Barry Berkus and built in 1988. A massive hand-carved front door sets an Old World tone.

Unusual features include beams from East Coast bridges on the ceiling of the library/study, a hedged secret garden and a third-floor tower room and roof deck with panoramic views.

Attached to the main house are 770 square feet of guest quarters including a living room with skylight, a galley kitchen, a fireplace, a bedroom and a bathroom. There is also a 710-square-foot home theater and recording studio.

Separately, a detached guesthouse of more than 1,800 square feet has a semicircular living and dining room with a fireplace, a galley kitchen and two bedrooms.

Expanses of lawn and an elevated deck surround the swimming pool, which is edged with stone. Fruit orchards, vineyards, hiking trails, a rustic playhouse and a footbridge over the stream complete the grounds.

The property was once owned by Grammy-winning musician Kenny Loggins. The Bridgeses paid slightly less than $7 million for the estate in 1994, according to Los Angeles Times reports at the time.

Bridges, 65, won an Oscar for "Crazy Heart" in 2010. Among his film credits are "The Giver" (2014), "True Grit" (2010) and "The Big Lebowski" (1998).

Suzanne Perkins of Sotheby's International Realty is the listing agent.

Ex-Lakers coach leaves coast

Mike D'Antoni is leaving Los Angeles on a high note, as far as real estate goes.

The former Lakers head coach and his wife, Laurel, have sold their home in Manhattan Beach for $9.5 million — nearly 40% more than what they paid for the property in 2013.

The three-story contemporary, on a walk street, was built in 2003 and features ocean views from most bedrooms and public areas.

Within the 5,000 square feet of space are living and dining rooms, an updated kitchen, a wine bar, five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. A cherry-paneled elevator services all three floors, including a sub-basement level with a 2,000-bottle wine cellar and tasting room.

The D'Antonis, who moved to West Virginia this spring, put the house on the market in March for $9.8 million. They bought the house in April 2013 for $6.9 million, records show.

Ed Kaminsky of Sports Star Relocation was the listing agent. David Caskey of Shorewood Realtors represented the buyer.

D'Antoni replaced interim coach Bernie Bickerstaff in 2012, signing a three-year, $12-million contract to be the head coach of the Lakers. During his tenure with the team, he piloted the Lakers to a 67-87 record before resigning after the 2013-14 season.

The 64-year-old was in play for the Denver Nuggets head coaching opening this off-season, but the job ultimately went to former Sacramento Kings head coach Michael Malone. D'Antoni served as head coach of the Phoenix Suns from 2003 to 2008, winning NBA coach of the year in 2005, and head coach of the New York Knicks from 2008 to 2012.

Chili Pepper sells garden spot

Red Hot Chili Peppers singer and lyricist Anthony Kiedis has sold his 1940s villa in Hollywood Hills West for $4.2 million.

The remodeled two-story opens to a living room with 14-foot ceilings and city views. The dining room features coffered ceilings and has a terrace overlooking the swimming pool.

A new kitchen, a library with high ceilings, a bar, a bonus room, three bedrooms and four bathrooms are within the living space, which tax records show to be 2,679 square feet.

Gardens and paths complete the walled and gated grounds of close to a quarter-acre.

Kiedis, 52, co-founded the Grammy Award-winning alternative rock band. The group has recorded 10 studio albums and such hits as "Can't Stop," "Higher Ground" and "Under the Bridge."

The musician bought the property two years ago for $3.65 million, public records show.

Kurt Rappaport of Westside Estate Agency was the listing agent. George Penner and Joshua Gaunya of Deasy Penner & Partners represented the buyer.
