If you watch The Holiday every year to laugh, cry, and swoon over Jude Law in glasses — you've likely also felt a pang of jealousy over Cameron Diaz's character, Amanda's, California home. With its elaborate gates upon entering and dreamy backyard, I vividly remember watching it and deciding that's it, I will own a home with ivy going up the exterior walls one day. Finally, I can snag the exact estate used in the movie; I just need to find around $12 million first.
Listed for $11.8 million, the house has 7-bedrooms, 6-bathrooms, and the iconic pool that made Iris — Kate Winselet's character — lose her sh*t.
Can't say I wouldn't act exactly the same if I was spending my holiday there.
As for the interior, it's not what you saw in the movie. Only the exterior of the house was featured in The Holiday, and while Amanda's house was modern and sleek, the actual home is much more traditional.
Excuse me, current owners, would you mind doing a The Holiday-style swap for a week so I can decide whether or not it's worth nearly 12 mil? Thanks!
