The nearly 50-acre Maine estate John Travolta shared with his late wife, fellow actor Kelly Preston, was listed Thursday for $5 million.
Located on the north end of the island of Isleboro, the home has more than 20 bedrooms and over 10,830 square feet of interior space. The property boasts views of the Penobscot Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, direct access to the water and a deep dock on Sabbathday Harbor, according to the listing.
The couple purchased the property in 1991, soon after their marriage, according to a 1999 Architectural Digest article. Mansion Global was not able to ascertain the purchase price.
Preston, who appeared in movies such as “Jerry Maguire” and “Old Dogs,” died in July after being diagnosed with cancer in 2018. She was 57.
Mr. Travolta, 67, the star of films including “Grease,” “Saturday Night Fever,” “Get Shorty” and “Pulp Fiction,” discovered the island when visiting actress Kirstie Alley there. He was looking for a place to entertain up to 50 members of his family for Christmas, according to Architectural Digest.
“It’s a fairytale house,” he said in the article. Representatives for the actor did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
Built in 1903, the shingle-style residence features a living room with a fieldstone fireplace and a whimsical custom bar, a formal dining room and a country kitchen with a walk-in refrigerator and pantry, according to the listing.
The third floor is designed for children, boasting a built-in stage, complete with props. The space also includes a schoolhouse, a library, a diner, four themed bedrooms, two terraces and a back deck.
Outside, a pool offers an alternative to swimming in the Maine’s frigid waters. The property also has a detached barn that is used as a garage, trails that lead to the ocean and open fields with water views. Part of the land is conserved through the Islesboro Island Trust.
Brian Wickenden of Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty has the listing. He declined to comment for this article.
