    Sylvester Stallone and third wife/former model Jennifer Flavin are selling their vacation home in the resort town of La Quinta, CA for $4,500,000, according to The Real Estalker. The duo paid the exact same sum for the Addison Mizner-inspired Mediterranean-style villa in January 2010. In November 2011, the home was listed at $4,300,000, but within 10 days, the price tag jumped $200,000 to its current figure.

    Offered fully-furnished in the exclusive Madison Club, this home embodies Mizner’s approach to blending the simple elegance of Spanish architecture with the fanciful Mediterranean style. The home features 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and is a sprawling 5,173 square feet. A private and gated courtyard leads to the front door that then opens to a living room and dining room and entertaining space with wood floors, stone fireplace, sitting areas and windows that slide open to reveal the swimming pool and outdoor kitchette.

    The Madison Club, according to its own website, was designed “in the tradition of California’s classic old-line country clubs.” Luxury amenities include 24-7 private security, concierge services, a 56,000 square foot clubhouse with several dining options, movie theater, billiard room, fitness center with men’s and women’s locker room, full-service spa facility and outdoor swimming pool complex. A croquet lawn and numerous terraces with fire pits and quiet seating areas surround the sprawling clubhouse that overlooks a meandering pond and immaculate Tom Fazio-deisgned course.

    Homeowner’s association dues for this home are $1,600 per month.
