Settle in with a cup of coffee on your Saturday morning, we've got a picture-ific update to the endless saga that is Nicolas Cage's real estate listings. His home on Copa de Oro Road in Bel Air, California has been on and off and back on the market several times. But as the Real Estalker says, he looks serious this time, cutting his price down to $17.5 million, neatly half of what he was asking back in September 2007 but still healthily above the $6.469 million he paid in 1998. The new listing has a gorgeous tour from Westside Estate Agency.
The pics reveal a lot more than we have seen of the house before. I've always known that Nicolas Cage is a bit of a collector but this house showcases the many things that he has amassed over the years. The framed comic books and even the giant Mickey Mouse in the casual dining room were no surprise but the huge amethyst geode was a bit of a shocker. Over at the Real Estalker Mama's place there's been quite a discussion over the decor. It's a crazy pastiche of objects, Cage is a collector who has never had to restrain himself with thoughts of budget. Rather than restricting himself to theme rooms, he has combined different styles and time periods in a way that seems more Charles Foster Kane than middle-aged movie star. The resulting spectacle is far from being a cozy domicile but it is definitely worth a look.
