Once owned by Tom Cruise, the secluded three-acre property offers multiple residences, a resort-like swimming pool, and 180-degree city views.

Eva Longoria has once again cut the asking price of her Hollywood Hills West compound. The award-winning actor, producer, and activist first listed the gated estate in 2017 for $14,000,000, after acquiring it two years prior from fellow film star and Golden Globe–winner Tom Cruise. A year later, she slashed the price to $11,000,000—which is $400,000 less than what she originally paid. Eager to sell, Longoria recently reduced the price even further and is now seeking $9,495,000.

Eva Longoria—known for her roles in Desperate Housewives and The Young and the Restless—purchased the multiproperty estate from Tom Cruise in 2015 for $11,400,000. Just two years after acquiring the home, she listed it for sale—and she has been seeking a buyer ever since.

Set on a 2.75-acre lot just above the Hollywood Hills, the Tuscany–inspired compound was built in 2004 and offers a total of four structures: a three-bedroom villa, a four-bedroom guesthouse, and two studios. Plans for a full renovation of the dwellings by architect Mark Rios were recently approved and are included in the sale.

Offering two detached residences and two additional studio spaces, the compound spans nearly three acres. Walking paths crisscross the property—including this bridge that overlooks the resort-like swimming pool.

The extensive, gated property is a secluded retreat in the heart of Los Angeles. Stone and gravel walking paths connect the separate structures and outdoor spaces, creating a resort-like. Scroll ahead to take a look around the estate, which is currently listed for $9,495,000.

One of the two residences on the property is a bright and airy French-style villa, which was fully remodeled in 2006. In the family room, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams enhance the sense of space, while windows and doors invite an abundance of fresh air and city views.

The spacious home includes multiple living and entertaining areas. A large formal dining room sits just off the kitchen.

The vaulted, beamed ceilings continue into the kitchen, which is outfitted in custom cabinetry and professional-grade appliances. The room offers plenty of counter space and cabinetry for storage. 

Sweeping views of the pool, property, and city beyond can be enjoyed from the villa terraces.

The second residence is a four-bedroom, four-bath country house, which takes on a different aesthetic both inside and out.

A large, stone fireplace anchors the main living room. Wide-plank hardwood floors and extensive wood details run throughout the home.

A wood-paneled dining area is located just steps away from the kitchen. Windows wrap around the space, providing views of the wooded area around the structure.

In the kitchen, high-end appliances and custom cabinetry line the walls, while marble caps the counters and floors.

A custom-built greenhouse is situated on another side of the property.

Neatly nestled along the driveway is smaller stone cottage, which can easily serve as a studio space or guesthouse.
