Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel want $ 35 million to say “bye, bye, bye” to their LA mansion
Pop star Justin Timberlake and his wife, actress Jessica Biel, are putting their sprawling Los Angeles resort on the market for $ 35 million.
The gated estate spans about 10 acres in a cul-de-sac in the Hollywood Hills, according to listing agent Justin Paul Huchel of Hilton & Hyland, who markets the property with his colleague Drew Fenton.
Mr. Timberlake, a Grammy-winning singer and actor, paid $ 8.3 million for the property in 2002, ahead of his marriage to Ms. Biel, according to records. Built in 2000, the Spanish villa-style primary residence is approximately 13,000 square feet with seven bedrooms, a gym, screening room, and outdoor entertainment space that surrounds the house. There’s also a separate guesthouse, tennis court, and an 85-foot zero-edge pool.

Mr Timberlake, 40, and Ms Biel, 39, who have two children together, renovated the house and added the pool, according to Mr Huchel.
The property also has a lot of Hollywood history. He was once in the estate of Hollywood star Errol Flynn. In the 1940s, Mr. Flynn built a complex with hidden passages, peepholes and one-way mirrors, according to the book “Errol Flynn Slept Here” by Robert Matzen and Michael Mazzone.
In the 1980s, the house was demolished and the land subdivided. Actress Helen Hunt built a house on approximately 3 acres of land which she then sold to Mr. Timberlake. The “Cry Me a River” singer has also purchased approximately 7 acres of vacant land from Ms Hunt which sits behind the primary residence and offers more privacy, Mr Huchel said.
A centerpiece of the house is a covered outdoor patio with a wooden ceiling, as well as the pool and hot tub overlooking the San Fernando Valley, Huchel said. The pool runs the length of the house and then drains into a separate plunge pool, he said.

Mr Huchel said the property, with a large, rolling lawn and vegetable patch, is possibly one of the largest in the area. “Just a blade of grass in the [Hollywood] Hills is hard to find, ”he said.
Mr. Timberlake and Ms. Biel declined to comment. The couple own property in New York, Montana and Tennessee, and Mr Huchel said they spend less time in Los Angeles.
Mr. Timberlake recently played an ex-convict in the movie “Palmer”, while Ms. Biel played and is an executive producer of “The Sinner” in the United States.
