Anthony Hopkins, 82, best known for his role as Hannibal Lecter in “The Silence of the Lambs,” for which he won an Oscar in 1992, is selling his Malibu home. Price? $11.5 million.
The actor has owned the property since 2001. He bought the house for about $3.8 million. The traditional residence, which vaguely resembles an English manor house with mansard windows jutting out from a brick-red roof, is hidden behind stone gates on a high bluff above the popular Zuma Beach. There is no direct access to the beach from the house, however the house offers panoramic and unobstructed ocean views.
The house was built in the 1950s. It measures over 370 square meters and has five bedrooms and five bathrooms. The rear of the house opens onto the garden, and the grounds also offer a large motor court, several outbuildings, including: “art room” and swimming pool.
