George Clooney Buying Tuscany Holiday Home – Report
Academy Award-winning actor George Clooney has made an offer on a holiday home in the Tuscany region of Italy, according to a U.K. report.
The Ocean’s Eleven star already owns properties in Los Angeles, Mexico, and near Lake Como in Italy, and is planning to move into his new marital home in England with wife Amal later this year once renovations are complete.
However, George has his eye on a clifftop villa in the seaside town of Castiglione della Pescaia, an area recommended to the actor by his chef pal Federico Salza, and he has reportedly made a bid on the house.
“Amal loves the region and told George she’d love a place away from prying eyes,” a source told Britain’s newspaper The Sun. “George has been looking all summer but loves the place and has put an offer in.”
George’s English home has undergone extensive renovation works, including the addition of a swimming pool, pool house, cinema and boat house, along with security cameras and a perimeter fence along the nearby river.
He has faced complaints over the fence, with council officials urging the Hollywood heartthrob to move it or take it down.
