Surprisingly, Jeff Bridge's former family estate doesn't have a working bowling alley—something his character from The Big Lebowski would have definitely fought for. The actor's chill Montecito Spanish Revival-style compound has just hit the market for $7.995 million. Sitting on four lush acres of land filled with gardens, the historic estate was originally built in 1919 by architect James Osborn Craig.

The three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home has gorgeous vaulted, beamed ceilings and even features five (five!) fireplaces. French doors also allow each room in the house to be an entryway into the yard's gardens. It was extensively renovated in 2016, and the results include a beautiful, new kitchen with custom-made cabinets and all original windows and doors.

"This is a 100-year-old compound, yet it’s completely restored," Sally Hanseth, a family friend and the home's listing agent, told Realtor.com. "It has so much soul and is exactly where you would imagine Jeff living."

The backyard includes a private well, pool, and pool house where guests can enjoy some California summer sun. Oh, and there's also a 5,000-square-foot barn on the property where Jeff Bridges enjoys meditating, painting, and jamming out with his band. Classic.
