Eva Longoria’s Desperate Move to Sell Mulholland Drive Home at an Incredibly Low Price Will Leave You Speechless

If there is one takeaway from the current crisis, it is that one virus can ruin everything. Schools, shops, restaurants, and malls have all shut down to avoid crowds from gathering and spreading the sickness.

But there is something this outbreak can’t stop: Eva Longoria’s desire to sell her Hollywood Hills mansion, which was on the market for almost three years before it found a new owner. However, this is not a reason for celebration for the ‘Dora and the Lost City of Gold’ actress because despite being in an A-lister neighborhood, the house was sold for $3.2 million less than what she paid for when she bought it from Tom Cruise in 2015.

The property was initially priced at $14 million, so selling it for only $8.25 million is a desperate move for the ‘Desperate Housewives’ star, especially if you consider the fact that the deal included approved plans for the modernization of the estate and an expansion of the main house.

Eva and her husband Jose Baston made a massive loss on the sale. The couple made significant renovations to the property after buying it from the Mission Impossible actor in hopes of increasing its value. The project was headed by one of the most sought-after architects, Mark Rios of Rios Clementi Hale Studios whose works include The California Endowment and Mark Taper Forum.

The upgrade was in accordance with Eva’s vision of a functional yet sophisticated home, and it indeed met the ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ alum’s standards with its Tuscan-inspired architecture – ornate gates, tiled roofs, arched windows and doorways, wooden gates, and so on.

With two separate structures in a gated 2.75-acre land, it is really hard to pinpoint what is wrong with this property. It is located at the end of the famous Mulholland Drive and sits atop a cliff, which means that the estate promises breath-taking views.

Sure, a villa-style mansion may seem basic for a California property, but if you set your eyes on its amenities — a lagoon-style pool complete with a wooden bridge over, al fresco dining terraces, a greenhouse, stone-clad pathways with greeneries on both sides, a stone cottage, and a separate four-bedroom guest home with a refined kitchen and wood floors – getting this place at such a discounted price is really a real estate mystery.

The main house’s interior is warm, cozy, and classy with Venetian plaster walls, vaulted cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors, and a cluster of windows. It also has three en suite bedrooms and a kitchen that is furnished with top-of-the-line appliances.
