Actor John Travolta has decided to put his huge oceanfront mansion in New England on the market, complete with a $6.3 million (US$5 million) price tag.

The movie star had owned the longtime retreat with his wife, the actor Kelly Preston, who died last year at the age of 57 of breast cancer.

The couple purchased the 30-room estate, on the north end of Islesboro Island, in the early 1990s, according Architectural Digest.

They had heard about the area from Travolta’s actor friend Kirstie Alley, who also had a vacation home there at the time. Travolta and Preston also owned real estate in Los Angeles, Hawaii, and Florida, according to AD.

Built in 1903, the home is filled with a mix of antiques, plush custom seating, and dining areas, all in vibrant colours.

“‘They couldn’t quite put their finger on what they wanted, but when I showed up with lots of colour, they went nuts,’” Boshears told AD in 1999 of his celebrity clients.

The massive property is reached by a winding, tree-covered drive and includes a 1,006 sqm main house on four lots, with 48 acres of oceanfront property.

It also has a deepwater dock on Sabbathday Harbour.

Travolta and Preston purchased the property for the purpose of hosting their large extended families for holidays. It’s set up for large gatherings, and includes 20 bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

The property also boasts two more large porches to enjoy the sun, and a sunny back deck overlooking the swimming pool. It also includes a detached barn for car storage.

The land, partially in conservation with the Islesboro Island Trust, includes open fields with ocean views, walking paths through the woods down to the shoreline, a beach, open ocean access, and garden areas.

Travolta is best known for his iconic roles in “Grease” and “Saturday Night Fever,” as well as “Look Who’s Talking,” “Pulp Fiction,” and “Get Shorty.”

Preston had roles in “Jerry Maguire,” “The Experts,” and “Gotti.”

Travolta announced the death of his wife on Instagram, writing, “Kelly’s love and life will always be remembered. I will be taking some time to be there for my children who have lost their mother, so forgive me in advance if you don’t hear from us for a while.”

Travolta recently was seen with his daughter Ella, for an appearance in a sweet and very buzzy Super Bowl ad showing off some “Grease” dance moves.

Copacabana oceanfront holiday house sold to Sydney family


This Copacabana oceanfront holiday house has sold to Sydney family.


A white washed eco retreat style property in Copacabana has been sold for $2.525 million, snapped up by a Sydney family as their new weekender.

The buyers had been eyeing off the home at 179 Del Monte Place before coronavirus hit and came back to it after returning from an overseas holiday.

It is not hard to understand why Sydneysiders like to escape here.


“They were originally looking at Macmasters Beach but fell in love with this one,” agent Kyle Brand from George Brand Avoca Beach said.

“They had to self quarantine for two weeks after an overseas trip, but went back to looking after that.”

Sold in just 36 days, Mr Brand said that interest in prestige property was good, despite coronavirus lockdowns.

“There isn’t an increase in inquiry, but it is definitely there,” he said.

“It’s generally coming from the Sydney market, probably around 80 per cent. Wealthy people with secure jobs have no reason to be concerned by market changes. I’ve had some buyers trying to get discounts, but these types of property are never as badly affected.”

The five-bedroom Copa home includes large glass doors that frame views over the veranda, with coastline stretching all the way along to Sydney’s Northern beaches.

White washed interiors make this the ultimate old school beach house.

An upstairs kitchen includes stainless benches, European appliances and outdoor servery window that connects to a covered entertainment area.

With four individual outdoor terraces and the beach just three hundred metres away at the foot of the hill, the coastal village vibe is hard to beat.

‘Copa’ is home to a small strip of shops that include a bottle shop, pizzeria and brand new eat-in bar.

There is also a delightful little bakery called Burnt Honey that sells delicious pastries that are popular with locals.

“Copa is so quiet through the week and is a great spot for families. The local school has a really good reputation,” Mr Brand said.
