Jude Law, 'Side Effects' Star, Puts London Home Up for Sale

One of the "Side Effects" of being a celebrity as hot as Jude Law? You tend to go through homes pretty quickly. At the tail end of 2010, he and then-on-again (now-off-again) girlfriend Sienna Miller settled in London's star-studded Highgate neighborhood. Then, last March, he was reportedly apartment hunting for a $10,000-and-up rental in New York City. Now, he's putting his sweet Georgian townhouse in London's posh Maida Vale neighborhood up for sale for $6.8 million, The Real Estalker reported. (That's converted from the 4.35 million pounds that it's listed for in British currency.)

We're wondering why he's cutting the townhouse loose now after all the trouble that he went through to make it his own. He rented the place for four years before finally buying it from his landlord for 3.5 million pounds, according to The Evening Standard in London. Then, he had to get his plans for extensive renovation to the place approved by neighbors, which he did last September. And now -- poof! -- he just tosses it away (albeit at a hefty price)?

Well, believe us, whoever picks up Law's home will want to hold onto it forever. Set "well back from the road," the Ian Green Residential listing says, it's primed for privacy. There's a beautiful 144-foot-deep backyard garden to feast your eyes on. Though details are slim, it appears that inside you'll find a double reception room, a conservatory, a sweeping kitchen and a huge master bedroom with a dressing room and en suite bathroom.
