When you’re a movie star as big as Johnny Depp, a simple mansion just won’t do.
The actor, famous for his roles in movies such as Pirates of the Caribbean, bought an entire French village back in 2001. He then spent $10 million on converting it into a sprawling estate with more than 12 buildings.
Now he’s putting the property on the market, with an low, low asking price of $26 million, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal. The original structures—spread throughout the 37-acre estate—are thought to have been built in the 1800s, and are located near the village of Plan-de-la-Tour, just north of the swanky beach resort Saint-Tropez. According to the Journal:
The estate centers around a village square, with a church that Mr. Depp converted into a guest house; a former confessional is now a wardrobe. There’s also a restaurant with a full professional kitchen, which Mr. Depp used as [the dining room]. Other buildings in the square include a laundry building and a garage, all made to look like local businesses.
