LA QUINTA, CA -- Sylvester “Sly” Stallone has not only smashed it as a leading actor, but also has an artistic side displayed in his paintings and his good taste in choosing stunning homes and input in their elegant decor, according to
Sylvester “Sly” Stallone
  While retaining bi-coastal residences in Los Angeles and Coconut Grove in Miami, he has recently put his golf club home in La Quinta, California on the market for $3.35 million.

Frank Capra
La Quinta, in suburban Los Angeles, is famous for its abundance of golf courses and where Frank Capra wrote the screenplay for Lost Horizons in 1937 while lounging poolside at the La Quinta Resort & Club.

Kim Kardashian-West
Stallone’s four-bedroom, five-bath, 4,889-square-foot home choice was likely influenced by his Italian ancestry with its Old World Mediterranean style and Caribbean Island touches.

They include double-wooden front doors; walled patio entry; inside rooms that open to the outdoors; vaulted foyer; an arched entrance into a two-story, beamed-ceiling living room with fireplace; and multiple conversation areas. 

Kanye West
Dinners can be enjoyed in the more formal dining room that opens to the rear terrace or in a number of other locations from the large eat-in island kitchen to the outdoor dining spaces and courtyard. 

Attractive features include coved ceilings and arched entryways between rooms with floors of hardwood and tile.  A classic home for entertaining, there is a wine room and outdoor kitchen on private terraces. 

 Kylie Jenner
Upstairs, the master suite has a fireplace, a television that rises at the foot of the bed, large master bath, dressing room and another private terrace with long-distance views to the mountains. 

Outside past the firepit and just steps off the terrace across the grass is a lovely pool and spa, lush plantings, water features and a rock-strewn flowing stream that runs across the property.

Tom Brady

La Quinta has been the host city for a number of prestigious golf tournaments over the years including annually The American Express formerly known as the Bob Hope Desert Classic.

  La Quinta is a celebrity hot spot and has attracted residents such as Kanye and Kim Kardashian-West, Tom Brady and Kylie Jenner.

An actor, director and screenwriter, Stallone is also a prolific painter whose work has been displayed in art museums and galleries in the United States, France, Russia and Switzerland.

Bob Hope

His most recent movie, Rambo: Last Blood, in which he takes on a Mexican drug cartel, opened last fall with box office sales over $91 million so far.

Sylvester Stallone is selling the custom home that he built in 2008 in La Quinta’s golfing community of Madison Club.  Priced at $3.35 million, the listing agent is Josh Reef of Douglas Elliman, Beverly Hills.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr.’s Key West Pirate Home Selling for $3.7 Million

                  Dale Earnhardt Jr.

KEY WEST, FL -- Affectionately known by NASCAR fans as the Pied Piper of Daytona, Dale Earnhardt, Jr. is much more than an award-winning, race-car driver, but also oversees a myriad of businesses that would exhaust most top business-school grads, according to
One of his most successful new ventures is restoring historical Key West houses, preserving their original charm, adding modern features that make the homes comfortable and even introducing whimsical features.
                                            Dale Earnhardt Sr.
His latest work, designed with a hat tip to the island’s pirate days, is in the Old Town neighborhood near the Mallory Square and Duval Street shops, trendy bars, cool restaurants, parades and street entertainers - priced at $3.7 million.
          Amy Earnhardt

Having semi-retired in 2017 after 21 years as a full-time, stock-car driver and amassing 26 victories, Earnhardt still races occasionally between overseeing his businesses and restoring homes in Key West.
Dale comes from a long line of NASCAR drivers from his grandfather, Ralph Earnhardt; his famous father, NASCAR Hall-of-Famer Dale Earnhardt, Sr. and other Earnhardt family relations also in the fast-cars business.

Ralph Earnhardt was father of Dale Earnhardt Sr.
and grandfather of Dale Earnhardt Jr.
He is owner of JR Motorsports, Hammerhead Entertainment, a signature line of eyeglass frames, Dale Earnhardt Jr. Chevrolet, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. Buick-GMC-Cadillac.
 He also owns two Whiskey River Beer and Wings restaurants in North Carolina and is co-owner of an auto and truck-filter mail-supply company.

by authors like Ernest Hemingway

In 2018, Dale and his interior-designer wife, Amy, really got into the creative spirit in Key West finding old conch houses to restore.

The first house they restored was recorded in a four-part reality TV series for DIY Network called Renovation Realities: Dale Jr. & Amy.

On completion, the house sold in just days. Their second house has been completed and has recently been put on the market.

                                           Harry S. Truman

Built in 1863 during the Civil War and full of old Key West charm that has seen its share of the country’s history - the most southern city in the contiguous U.S. and an extended vacation town for presidents including Franklin Roosevelt, Harry Truman and Dwight Eisenhower.

 The Earnhardts’ latest project is quite large compared to most of the Key West homes at 3,306 square feet with five bedrooms and four baths.
Deceptive in size from the gingerbread front entrance, the rooms retain most of the original architecture along with added pirate and nautical themes.

Franklin D. Roosevelt

Rope-wrapped columns, lots of wood, a ship’s wheel on the side of the large wrap-around bar in the kitchen and parrots sitting up in the rafters watching the goings on.
 On the second floor there is even a secret floor hatch that can be lifted to spy on the mates below. The swimming pool is huge by Key West standards over two fathoms deep.

For non-pirates, that would be 14-feet, a perfect place to hone one’s scuba-diving skills. 

Across the cultivated-jungle garden is a guest house and above the pool on the second-story, wrap-around balcony is a gate where walking the plank into the water below is a real possibility.

When the six-toed cat appears on the front porch, it can be easily returned to Ernest Hemmingway’s house down the street, and as a reward, stop by Sloppy Joes for a lazy-afternoon gin and tonic.
Dale, Jr. and Amy Earnhardt’s pirate-themed conch house whimsically speaks to Key West’s historical beginnings.
Now for sale at $3.7 million, the house is listed with Bob and Debbie Cardenas of Ocean Sotheby’s International Real Estate, Key West, Florida.
