If there ever was a home that was filled with good vibes, we’re guessing it’s one that belongs to Oscar-winner Jeff Bridges. The beloved actor, known for films like “Crazy Heart” and “The Big Lebowski,” just listed his sprawling Montecito compound for $7.995 million, realtor.com reports. 

Set on over four acres of beautiful California countryside, the three-bed, two-and-a-half bath Spanish Revival estate was originally built in 1919 by famed architect James Osborn Craig. Extensively renovated in 2016, the property has been updated to embrace modern amenities while still possessing the qualities of a picturesque meditation oasis. Hardwood floors run throughout the home, filled with original windows and doors that stream in natural sunlight. High ceilings tower overhead, five fireplaces are scattered throughout, and every room seems to open out to lusciously landscaped gardens. A fully remodeled kitchen has upscale appliances, a center island, stylish cabinetry, and quartz countertops, as well as an adjoining family room with beamed ceilings and a cozy fireplace. A large dining room overlooks the outdoor gardens, which are just a few steps away via french doors. The master bedroom is a private oasis in its own right, complete with a crackling fireplace and bay windows. In the remodeled master bath, there’s a deep soaking tub, huge double shower, and his/hers sinks. An expansive walk-in closet features extensive storage and seating areas, perfect for prepping for a night out on the town.

The home also features a cozy den with a wall of built-ins and plenty of space for getting some work done. But open up the doors and you’re right outside on the stone patio, where the sparkling swimming pool and spa sit next to a comfortable pool house. Underneath the mature oak trees is an even larger patio with extensive stonework, perfect for enjoying meals outside in the California sunshine or sitting by the fire pit. A backyard filled with flat, grassy areas and mature trees is surrounded by gardens, and also leads to the one-bedroom guest house, perfect for an au pair or visiting in-laws. There’s also a 5,000-square-foot barn, where, according to realtor.com, Bridges likes to “perform with his band, paint and meditate,” which seems particularly on brand for him.
