Banderas, Griffith sell house for $15.94 mn

Los Angeles, June 19 (IANS) Actor Antonio Banderas and his estranged wife Melanie Griffith have sold their home here for a staggering $15.94 million.

The 54-year-old actor and Griffith, who tied the knot in 1996, opted to sell the 15,110-sq ft property in the city’s Hancock Park Enclave after announcing their decision to divorce “in a loving and friendly manner”, reports

The sale is a record for the neighbourhood, beating the previous best set just last summer by as much as $4.94 million.

The property, which dates back to the 1920s, has reportedly been sold to Ted Sarandos, the chief content officer at the streaming service Netflix, and his wife Nicole Avant, the former ambassador to The Bahamas.

The sale represents a massive profit for the duo, who acquired the mansion in 1999 for $4.2 million, before buying the neighbouring property for $1.3 million a year later.
