Arnold's Love Nest Sold!
When Arnold Schwarzenegger admitted that he had fathered a child in 1997 with his and Maria’s housekeeper of 20 years, it was a shock wave that traveled around the globe. Wasn’t he listening to all the rhetoric on family values by his Republican party? After distastefully laying waste to his wife and children, with a smirk on his face, answered his CNN interviewer when asked if there had been others, “I’m not perfect.” Of course Maria filed for divorce in 2011 when the news broke, but undaunted, Arnold continued to stroke his ego by authoring his book, “Total Recall: My Unbelievable True Life Story.” Published in 2012, not surprisingly, the book hasn’t made it to the New York Times Bestseller List.
The attractive home that the Schwarzeneggers purchased when they married in 1986 and lived in for 17 years went back on the market several years ago. This is also the infamous house in which Arnold impregnated the housekeeper. They sold it in 2003 for a little under $18 million, all the while with Maria not knowing the maid’s son was fathered by her husband. They even took the maid with them to the next house.
The 10,000 square foot house sits on 2.5 acres with 9 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms spread between the main house, a guest suite and guest quarters. The house has huge spaces for entertaining and a cook’s kitchen with commercial appliances. The grounds contain a pool and tennis court and lovely landscaped gardens.
Arnold and Maria’s former family home originally priced at $23 million, reduced to $13.9 million, sold for $12.9 million.
