Emilio Estevez Privately Lists Malibu Mansion Complete with Winery for $7.8 Million
'The Breakfast Club' actor, Emilio Estevez is reportedly selling his Malibu mansion in a private listing for $7.8 million, according to several news reports. The Point-Dume estate is the place where Estevez grew grapes to make wine, which sells under the label, Casa Dumetz.
Estevez purchased the home sometime back in 2000 for just $2.2 million. The residence is a 3731 square feet home comprising of four bedrooms and five bathrooms sitting on a prime 1.1 acre land, reports The Los Angeles Times.
Interiors of the home feature hardwood floors, large glass-wood framed windows and doors and high ceilings. The home has custom designed cabinets and storage space. Outside, the residence has a large swimming pool with an attached spa, a couple of sheds growing fruits and veggies and an area restricted to growing grapes. A separate guest house with a wine tasting room is also a part of the estate.
According to the Real Estalker, the home was shown in an invite-only broker open house sometime last week.
The most interesting part about the house is the winery. Estevez and his fiancé, Sonja Magdevski planted the vineyard in 2004. The two learned the art of wine making over the years.
Wine Enthusiast, a wine magazine sat down for an interview with Estevez and Magdevski where they discussed, wine and the start of it all:
"When we were in Galicia, where my grandfather is from, every backyard had grapevines, a vegetable patch and a few chickens. I did not grow up farming, but here I am now, planting grapes and pruning vines. I believe it has to do with genetics, why we are drawn to a certain thing for no apparent reason," Estevez said.
Meanwhile, Magdevski compared wine making to film making saying:
"Having a small winery-it's really like making an indie film. You have to improvise every day to make it work. But most importantly, be excited and love what you're doing!"
