Katie Holmes Buys Modernist Manor House in Calabasas
TMZ says that Holmes is high-tailing it back to California to be nearer to Hollywood, so she can get her career back on track. Ex-husband Tom Cruise must be thrilled -- he's got a massive estate in Beverly Hills, and this moves brings daughter Suri closer. Holmes' next phase in life will start inside a "Grand European Manor with contemporary flair," situated on an expansive lot.
Located atop a cul-de-sac and bordering pristine conservancy land, Holmes' new home is an expansive main residence with a separate guest casita. Extensively customized with the finest finishes, the home's features include a gourmet center-island kitchen with professional appliances, dark distressed wood floors, and use of rare stones and marble accents.
The open floor plan includes several entertaining courtyards, including one adjacent to the dramatic formal living and dining rooms. A grand foyer is accentuated by an open library/loft and Katie's brand new master retreat has a sitting area and a large sun deck.
Outside, resort-like grounds feature an oversized pool with sunken fire-pit lounge area, several seating enclaves, a covered loggia, large grassy area, kitchenette and sports court. Perfect for Suri as she grows!
