SLY PUMPS UP RESIDENCE
SYLVESTER STALLONE has completed a two-year expansion of the newly built Beverly Hills-area home he bought in December 1998, for about $10 million.
Just in time for the holidays, STALLONE, who starred in the fall remake of the movie “Get Carter,” put some finishing touches on the home that he shares with his wife, model JENNIFER FLAVIN, and their two children.
Much of the work, including landscaping and improvements, is apparent even from a bird’s-eye view. The Italianstyle villa, on two-plus acres, was given an older, Tuscan look. The estate, behind bronze gates, also has a long driveway and grounds dotted with marble statues of lions, crocodiles and other creatures.
A colorful outdoor play gym with swings and slides has been installed for the children, and the grounds have been completed with a pool, two cabanas, expansive lawns and many trees, amount them redwoods and pines.
When STALLONE bought the house, it had five family bedrooms and two maid’s quarters in about 16,000 square feet, adding a library, more bedrooms and garages. STALLONE, 54, is know to have a passion for building and architecture.
STALLONE teams with BURT REYNOLDS in the sports action movie “Champs,”to be released in April, and he stars in the police thriller “D-Tox,” also due in the spring.
