THIS IS WHAT TOM HANKS GOT FOR 26 MILLION DOLLARS?

Photo Credit: Pacific Coast News

We’ve been told this is a photo of the 26 million dollar house that Tom Hanks bought and we have to admit we’re more than a little disappointed. The Architecture from this angle seems pedestrian at best, and not at all inviting. The pool area is flat and dull with no relief from the sun. The landscaping is far from lush and there seems to be no shaded outside area for entertaining. Imagine a three story house this size with only four bedrooms! We have to say the outside of the house, which is very important in California, doesn’t live up to the astronomical price. (Click on photo to enlarge)

    We’re with you Janet. The place is nowhere near worth 26 mil. There must be something REALLY stunning in the interior, because the exterior sucks, Big Time.

    This may be a case of misidentification. Check it out.

    Maybe they want to entertain indoors.

    I’m sure they will add landscaping and little touches to make it their own. I’m sure they paid for the location, privacy and view….anything else can be done over.

    Janet,

    Good morning. I must say that I agree with you 100%. When I saw your posting the other day, I was excited to see what Mr. Hanks purchased because I really admire him. But I must say, it’s not what I expected at all, but if he and his family are happy with their new piece of real estate, that’s all that matters. Smooches. P.S. Hell, I’m glad somebody in America can afford to keep and/or purchase a home. Good times.

    It looks like a hospital or huge office building. And I agree about the pool area, it is so exposed and plain looking. I can’t imagine what they found attractive about the thing. I would also be worried, being in California, about the whole thing going down the hill, what with earthquakes, landslides, and the like. I see it has somewhat of a retaining wall, but with the weight of that thing, that wall would be comepletely inadaquate. Why people insist on building houses in precarious places like that is beyond me. I think it’s just rediculous and stupid. They’ll be screaming for help when it starts sliding and breaking up.

    Wanna bet they will doing some remodeling to the tune of another $5 million or so. No star hardly ever buys a house without extensive remodeling.

    If I’d sold my soul to the devil like Hanks et al, of COURSE, I’d have some cool digs like this! After all, he’s living like this now because we know his soul will burn 1000 years into eternity!

    Tom, don’t forget the smores . . .

    I don’t know anything about real estate in California, but maybe this is the going price for a house this size in its location? I agree with other posters who said surely he and his wife will put their own touches on the place. And as long as they are happy with the purchase, then it doesn’t really matter what anyone else thinks. I hate when I buy something and think “what will “X” person think.” Does it really matter what “X” person thinks? If I’m happy with whatever I bought, I shouldn’t have to apologize to anyone else for it.

    I can’t stand it. The place looks like an office building I used to work in. It looks cold, uninviting and sterile. Not cozy at all. Maybe some people don’t like cozy though. To each their own I always say. As long as he keeps pumping out wonderful movies, I could care less where he decides to hang his hat.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • SCIENTOLOGY IS LOSING ANOTHER MAJOR CELEBRITY
    |


    Another one of the most famous female members of the church of Scientology is very quietly planning to extricate herself from the organization. She won’t discuss it now and perhaps never will, but she used to be a close friend of Leah Remini. It’s a brave thing for a celebrity to do, but this actress has been having doubts for awhile and Leah’s anti-Scientology series pushed her even farther. Longtime members have to adjust to losing most of their friends and many business associates (assistants, managers, accountants, nannies etc) so it takes a LOT of preparation. This will be a huge slap in the face of David Miscavige.
