Sitcom and movie actor Jim Belushi has been trying to sell his expansive villa in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles for years. Originally rumored to be listed off-market for $42 million, the Mediterranean-style estate officially went up for sale in 2017 for $38.5 million and has been price chopped since. Now, the star has dropped the price to $27.995 million, only $2 million less than the last asking price. With this new reduction comes a change in broker as well, so Belushi seems to be getting serious about selling his beloved residence.Clocking in at a whopping 14,371-square-feet, the exquisite beauty is filled with European influence. Light and airy like a villa in Tuscany, the interiors boast Italian Terracotta tile floors, Venetian plaster walls, and hand painted wallpaper. Peruvian tiled roofs add some Latin flair while hardwood floors from North Carolina represent the South, making this six-bedroom mansion somewhat of a house of the world. It is also a house of luxury with a wine room and sauna always at the ready.Step out grand doors and the romantic outdoor spaces are like a storybook. Under a latticework pergola enjoy sipping aperitifs in front of the stone fireplace or having friends gather for a dinner party around the dining table. Statues and fountains are sprinkled throughout immaculate landscaping, and a swimming pool and Jacuzzi are at your fingertips, too.Elizabeth Halsted of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices
