Hollywood actors often live in homes and mansions that  for most people only exist in a dream world, and Los Angeles is such world. Nicolas Cage is one such superstar, and so is his former Bel Air property.

The house was sold in 2010 for $10.5million, although the actor originally asked for $35 million, as he had bought it for $6.5million back in 1998.

This 11,817 square feet Bel Air mansion was built in the 1940s with the main structure made primarily of red bricks. Inside it counts 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 5 fireplaces and stained glass, a theater, a library and a 1,800-bottle wine cellar. The house was well know for its extravagant interior decoration and luxurious finishings.

Although Cage had to sell this and other properties back in the day, because of some financial difficulty, we certainly hope to eyewitness more fabulous Holywood-style mansions appear on our scenery very soon!
