Johnny Depp’s Compound in the South of France Listed at $63 Million

Though it first came up for sale in early 2015 with an asking price of just over $25 million, Johnny Depp’s quirky, village-like compound in Plan De La Tour, France, about 10 miles outside of the yacht-choked harbor at Saint-Tropez, was re-listed this year with a hugely increased price reported to be €50 million, about $63 million in U.S. dollars. The three-time Oscar nominee, soon to reprise his role in the billion dollar “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise, acquired the approximately 37-acre spread in 2001 for an unknown amount and over the next 15 years reportedly coughed up another $10 million to restore and update the numerous stone-built structures that date to the early 1800s.

The property includes an entire 19th-century hameau — a small Provençal village — with more than a dozen structures that together measure more than 10,000-square-feet with a total of 15 bedrooms and 14 bathrooms. The approximately 4,300-square-foot main house and has five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, a deconsecrated church is now a guesthouse wherein the confessional was converted to a closet, and a gypsy-style covered wagon serves as a quirky guest suite complete with a bathroom and kitchen. The estate also includes a swimming pool, an art studio and a private restaurant Depp named Café Marcheline.

Depp’s extensive international collection of residential holdings includes a villa in the upscale Paris suburb of Meudon and a largely undeveloped 45-acre private island in the Bahamas. In Los Angeles the three-time Oscar nominee has long owned a chateau-style mansion on almost 2.75 acres above L.A.’s Sunset Strip along with several of the surrounding homes and he’s sold two of the five contiguous but uncombined penthouses atop a chic building in downtown Los Angeles that he bought in 2007 and 2008 for a combined cost of about $7.2 million and, in the throes of his contentious divorce with model Amber Heard, listed as individual units earlier this year with a combined price of $12.78 million.
