The Dude abides an­other sale

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - Real Estate - By Neal J. Leitereg and Jack Flemming

Os­car-winning ac­tor Jeff Bridges is repris­ing his role as seller in Mon­tecito, where his Span­ish Re­vival-style com­pound of five years is on the mar­ket for $7.995 mil­lion.

He and his wife, Su­san Ge­ston, sold an­other Mon­tecito prop­erty — a 19.5-acre vine­yard es­tate — in 2017 for $15.925 mil­lion.

Set on four acres, the Span­ish Re­vival-style main home is ac­com­pa­nied by a guest­house, a pool house, a car­riage house and a horse fa­cil­ity

with five stalls and a tack room. The ver­dant grounds con­sist of gar­dens, red­woods, oak groves and or­chards, and a pri­vate well.

Bridges, 67, won an Academy Award in 2010 for the film “Crazy Heart.” His scores of movie cred­its also in­clude “Hell or High Water,” “True Grit” and “The Big Le­bowski,” and last year, he starred in “Bad Times at the El Royale.”


In San Cle­mente, the ocean­front es­tate that be­came known as the

West­ern White House dur­ing Richard Nixon’s pres­i­dency has re­turned to mar­ket at $57.5 mil­lion, a roughly 23% dis­count from its orig­i­nal $75 mil­lion ask­ing price.

Called La Casa Paci­fica by Nixon dur­ing his own­er­ship, the 5.45-acre es­tate was ac­quired for the pres­i­dent’s use in 1969.

Owner Gavin S. Her­bert, the for­mer chief ex­ec­u­tive of Al­ler­gan Phar­ma­ceu­ti­cals, bought the prop­erty from Nixon in the 1980s and re­mod­eled and ex­panded the es­tate. At its heart is a Cal­i­for­nia Colo­nial Re­vival-style home of about 9,000 square feet.

Among fea­tures are an ocean-view of­fice used by Nixon.

Ac­com­pa­ny­ing the main house is a two-bed­room guest­house, staff res­i­dences, of­fices, a green­house and for­mal gar­dens.

Jeff Bridges and his wife, Su­san Ge­ston, are seeking about $8 mil­lion for their four-acre es­tate in Mon­tecito. The Span­ish Re­vival-style home, de­signed by James Os­borne Craig, fea­tures a beamed- ceil­ing liv­ing room, hard­wood floors and walls of win­dows that bring in leafy views.
