‘Basic Instinct’ Home For Sale For $29 Million
It’s a home featured in one of the most iconic movies on the 1990’s.
The 1992 thriller “Basic Instinct” starred Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone and the house in Carmel, California is on sale for a cool $29.6 million.
And, even though the movie is set in San Francisco, at least one of its many memorable moments takes place in a club which was based on the popular Limelight club in New York City. It is the scene where the character played by Sharon Stone, Catherine Tramell, meets up with Michael Douglas' character, Detective Nick Curran
The house was also most recently used as the setting for the award-winning HBO series “Big Little Lies” with Reece Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.
The home has changed hands over the years, and was owned for a few years by aviator Steve Follett, with the current owner investing millions in renovations.
No longer the beach house shown in the film, the restoration has taken the house into the 21st century.
The 12,000-square-foot residence with five bedrooms, nine baths, 12 fireplaces and two kitchens is sited on over two acres of lushly planted grounds with a pool, spa and grotto hidden away among tropical foliage.
The house also contains a two-story library, gourmet main kitchen with glass-walled breakfast area, a second kitchen, and a gym and sauna.
Glass walls provide Pacific Ocean and coastal views.
There is a greenhouse and various levels of terraces that meander down closer to the water. One is for outdoor dining, another for a firepit and another, just to sit, listen and observe the ocean.
There is also a private hot tub surrounded by a natural rock wall facing the ocean.
There are interesting facts about Carmel, California, where the home is located. Not only is it, in many ways, the anthesis of New York, Carmel has unique laws, including no high heels for women without a permit, should they cause a fall on the uneven pavement.
