The Daily Mail reports that the 64-year-old actor and his wife have placed their large property in trendy Santa Barbara in California on the market. He kept his own alligator as a pet when he was “James Sonny Crockett” in the cult series “Miami Vice”, and now he doesn’t have enough space for his own horses, so he wants to move to somewhere larger. It seems that Don Johnson and his wife bought their home last year for 12.5 million Dollars, and now they would like to sell this character property for 14.9 million Dollars.
Santa Barbara is the place where the famous live and where tourists come from all over the world. The town, and especially the Montecito neighbourhood in which the property is situated, is one of the most expensive residential areas in the USA. The quiet location directly by the Pacific and just under 90 miles North West of L.A. offers a high quality of life and a mild climate all year round. If this has made you curious, you can take a look at some spectacular homes around L.A.
With his secluded lifestyle in California, the life which the former series star is living is a far cry from the gangster hunter image of shady Miami in the 1980s. The actor is still talked about in connection with the 80s TV series. Spectacular car chases after drug bosses and pimps, Hollywood-type appearances in designer suits in music video style in a pastel look were the images with which Miami obtained its official status of being sexy and dangerous. The city in the SunshineState has now successfully fought off its undesirable reputation, and is scoring with highly-priced real estate, an international art scene and beautiful architecture.
