Using a narrator in your listing video can make a property stand out in the market. It certainly has for a new listing that features Oscar winner and Hollywood powerhouse Michael Douglas. Douglas recently lent his voice to narrate his $32.4 million listing for his home in Spain.
Douglas narrates the history of the seven-building estate, called “S’Estaca,” located on the island of Mallorca in Spain. The home was built in the mid-19th century by Archduke Ludvig Salvator. It was the home’s history that Douglas says first drew him to the property.
The actor says that he has spent 30 years to “put my own mark on the place” in “completely modernizing and redecorating” the 200-acre estate. It features five separate apartments with 10 total bedrooms and even includes a vineyard. Douglas first purchased the home three decades ago for $3.5 million with his first wife, Diandra Luker.
The home is listed for $32.38 million with Florian Hofer of Engel & Vӧlkers. Douglas had previously listed the estate in 2014 for $60 million.
“My life has taken a new course and now it’s time for me to let someone else enjoy the privilege and adventure of S’Estaca,” Douglas says on the video. “Someone who will appreciate the beauty, the privacy, and the uninterrupted views. Someone with the vision and the spirit of the creator of S’Estaca, Archduke Ludvig Salvator.”
