Actor Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinketh Smith have reportedly put their dream home in Calabasas, California up for sale.
They have put up the house for sale in the market for $42 million. They have lived there for two years, reports dailymail.co.uk. They had reportedly taken seven years to build the 25,000 sq ft property. If reports are to be believed, they have also said to put their house in Hawaii up for sale.
When Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett Smith built this dream home which they called the Smith Compoud is a 25,000 square foot castle. Inspite of such a big size the family insists that their home is extremely intimate and they have done their best to give it a natural and earthy look.
Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith live with their children Willow, Jaden, and Trey. Speaking about their castle, Jada had once said, "For Will and me this home was always a spiritual endeavor. We're very earthy, organic people. We wanted to create a family retreat, something made by hand and as natural as possible, something that ties back to the land."
Will Smith's house in Calabascas, California has architectural details from the Middle East, Africa, the American Southwest, and Asia.

One of the primary draws of the property was a picturesque man-made lake with views of majestic Saddle Peak in the distance. In short order Will and Jada purchased a string of adjacent plots to assemble the rambling 150-acre parcel: their sylvan Shangri-la.

Given the environmentally sensitive landscape and the area's labyrinth of regulations, the building-permit process dragged on for four years. Construction finally commenced in 2003, after Samuelson (The local architect) and his team had regraded the property to its natural topography and restored sections that had been leveled for equestrian use.

The textural quality of traditional three-layer stucco, with all its inherent imperfections, is echoed in exposed ceiling timbers harvested from old homesteads and barns. Banisters of hammered wrought iron and floors inlaid with river stones in spiral and infinity-knot patterns reinforce the project's hand-forged ethos and spiritual aspirations.
