Now they have one-year-old son, Leo, to think about and the possibility of more children in the future, it is understandable that their 3-bedroom, 3.5 bathroom Balinese style mansion was feeling a little cramped, so the super star couple have sold it, and RadarOnline.com has photos inside their 3,334 square-foot home.
Cruz and Bardem originally listed the house, which Penelope bought in 2005, for $3,650,000 but the real estate slump in Southern California forced them to accept the much lower price of $2,880,000.
The Vanilla Sky star, 38, had intended to use the home as a primary residence, but after becoming a mother she increasingly disliked spending time in Los Angeles in the public eye and reportedly ended up using it as more of a crash pad.
The beautiful white-walled single story home features a majestic carved wooden gate that opens into an intimate courtyard with a bubbling fountain and tropical landscaping. A kidney-shaped pool is the focal point of the back yard, which boasts a view of downtown L.A.
Inside, the house includes a maid’s room, a large kitchen with olive green cabinets, bamboo floors and a huge master suite with French windows leading to the garden.
