Burt Reynolds Slashes Price of Florida Waterfront Estate

Burt Reynolds has chopped the price of his 3.39-acre waterfront estate in Tequesta, Fla., originally listed way back in 2008 for $10.5 million, all the way down to $4.9 million. Reynolds acquired the estate in 1980 for just $700,000, and lived there with his second wife Loni Anderson.

In addition to a 12,538-square-foot mock-Mediterranean mansion with five bedrooms and seven bathrooms, the gated and secured estate includes a billiard room, a 20-seat cinema, and a separate guesthouse. There’s an octagonal screened cabana next to the pool, a private dock and a helicopter landing permit — a rarity in the area, according to listing details.

The famously mustachioed Oscar-nominated actor (“Boogie Nights”) is a well known collector of Hollywood memorabilia — especially that which relates to his own career. Much of it once filled his Tequesta mansion, but he recently auctioned a boatload of baubles, everything from the trophies earned from his early football successes to his 1998 “Boogie Nights” Golden Globe.

    According to the article, “Burt Reynolds sold his 1998 “Boogie Nights” Golden Globe” along with other memorabilia he owned… As far as I’m concerned I’ve always tought this was an extremely average and overrated movie who have been botched, Paul Thomas Anderson is capable of doing much more than that, Burt Reynolds probably doesn’t care either for the Oscar he won for that same movie…

    Reynolds did much to spur early film activity in Georgia. My understanding is that he was wanting to create a Hollywood style movie lot like Warner Bros and the state dropped the ball. Still, he shot many films here in the 70s that “said ‘Atlanta’ all over”. Gave lots of young professionals like me opportunities on both sides of camera, too
    . The town and state owe him ‘Thanks’! All the best, Burt!

    Burt…loving your great home and everything in it. So very Retro and I am sure awesome times of the past. I wish I had the money…would buy it in a heartbeat and leave it just the way it is! I look at older places as a walk through history. Your movies are a piece of your heart and soul and so is that great home of yours!! As always, I wish you all the best in whatever you do.

    Big Burt; Less is more. Rosebud.

  5. Brian says:

    Awful…..tear down. Sorry Burt!

  6. Marie Ann says:

    It’s a beautiful home in a great location. It is way to cluttered, the kitchen is way too outdated , and the style of furniture does not go with that style of home. It would probably sell much quicker if it was empty.

    Hi Mr. Reynolds: My daughter and I really enjoyed your show at the Lyric. I was the lady that greeted you upon arriving and yelled “Welcome Mr. Reynolds, you look great and I wish you many more years of health and prosperity, and May God Bless You! You were very gracious to respond a blessing in return to me. I was seated in the fourth row, with a black and white sweater blouse top. I’ve always enjoyed your movies and TV shows. You have a great laugh, don’t ever loose it. Could you give me the title of the movie debuting in the fall. I moved from the Pocono’s in PA. to Florida to join my daughters in Jupiter and Juno Beach. We made a family visit years ago to the museum on Route 1. We truly enjoyed it and bought shirts and coffee mugs for the family. I do wish you well in the future.
    God Bless and watch over you always. Sincerely, Deanna Magyar PS: I saw you at Charlotte Motor Speedway with Hal Needham with the race car in the 70’s. Hope to see you again.

    Burt Reynolds is a American icon. It’s so funny how many haters there are. Almost everyone enjoys putting down someone that is successful. I experience this often. I’m very successful and people always want to tear you down because your successful.
    Mr Burt Reynolds…I salute you……although I’ve never met you….. You seem like a man that knows what he likes and takes no shit off anybody………..

    I honestly forgot Burt and Loni were married.

    I no longer have a crush on Burt Reynolds.

  11. Sandpiper says:

    How many ways can I say awful?! My favorite ghastly room is the library — with no reading lamp. Such an oxymoron. Mama, I recall years ago when you first wrote this one up. Aunt Mary, The Staging Lady and I were going to driver over there and do an intervention, complete with dumpsters in the driveway! (P.S. Aunt Mary was bringing the Sherry and chocolates.)

  12. J.E. Vizzusi says:

    Selling just about everything you have in life and ridding yourself of material possessions can be a very good thing. Its the inner Peace we all desire, not mansions and yachts.

  13. John Michael says:

    The 2 Garbage pails were what sold me on it

  14. Eric says:

    Somebody’s stuck in a time warp.

    An architectural albatross — poor, sad bastard.

    If he can’t get a gig on Hoarders he might just as well burn the place down…
