Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas are in talks to sell their Westchester estate to Aussie cardboard billionaire Anthony Pratt, of Pratt Industries.

The power couple bought it for around $11.25 million in 2014 and are in contract to sell it for around $15 million in an off-market deal, reports the NY Post.

The palatial 1,436 sqm residence at 44 W. Patent Road in Bedford Corners was built in 1895.

It features eight bedrooms and an incredible 18 bathrooms, all on 13.28 acres.

It includes a handsome chef’s kitchen, plus a spa with two indoor pools, a gym, a sauna and a steam room. Zeta-Jones renovated it room by room, sharing photos on social media throughout the process with the hashtag #StyleByZeta.

Per Instagram, Zeta-Jones converted a barn on the property into a “girl cave” with a ballet barre and mirrors, a sewing machine and a large sofa.

Outside, there’s another pool, a tennis court, a guest cottage with two apartments and a greenhouse.

It’s to be hoped that Pratt is a horse lover; as the estate additionally includes a four-stall barn, an outdoor ring, four paddocks and direct access to the Bedford Riding Lanes trails.
