Michael Douglas Spanish mansion: actor voices video for home sale
Real estate agents in Melbourne and Sydney have come out with some pretty impressive acting performances in promo videos lately, but they’re not quite Oscar worthy.
Enter Best Actor winner and “greed is good” line utterer Michael Douglas, who has taken it upon himself to spruik his Spanish mansion for sale on the heavenly island of Mallorca.
The two-time Oscar winner, 74, narrates the Engel & Völkers agency video for S’Estaca, his US$32.4 million (about AUD$47 million) home perched on a cliff above the water.

“My life has taken a new course and now it’s time for me to let someone else enjoy the privilege and adventure of S’Estaca,” he croons in the video.
“Someone who will enjoy the beauty, the privacy and the uninterrupted views, someone with the vision and the spirit of the creator of S’Estaca, Archduke Ludwig Salvator (of Austria).”
The Archduke created the “magical retreat” on the northwest coast of Mallorca in the mid 19th century after falling in love with the island, so different from the “royal court in Vienna”.
Douglas has owned the property since himself falling in love with it in 1990. It’s got its own olive groves, vineyard and cellar, as well as seven buildings including five apartments, with 10 separate bedrooms where “up to 20 people can stay … in great style and comfort”.
His own mark on the place includes “completely modernising and redecorating the old buildings” on more than 200 acres (81ha) “from the mountains down to the shore”.
The actor, who is married to Catherine Zeta-Jones, purchased the home for a reported $3.5 million with his first wife, Diandra Luker, People reports.
Sold on the romance yet? Check out the video and see how it compares to this raunchy western Sydney effort, and comical Oakleigh South and Glen Waverley performances.
