The person responsible for two of the highest-grossing films ever made is selling his sprawling Florida compound.
Located at 89301 Old State Rd
., in Islamorada's Plantation Key, the 6,050-square-foot house was built in 2001 and is owned by legendary producer Jon Landau, whose list of films include "Titanic," "Avatar," "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids" and "Dick Tracy," to name a few.
Like the fictional Avatar planet of "Pandora," the property is about as exotic as it gets. The Balinese-influenced estate is nicknamed "Bali Hai," a reference to James Michener’s book "Tales of the South Pacific," and comes with a total of six bedrooms and six bathrooms. It also features Brazilian mahogany carved doors, a 1,000 bottle wine cellar, a tennis court, a deepwater dock, and an infinity-edge pool and a fire pit surrounded by a hot tub.
However, arguably, one of the more impressive features is the 7,000-gallon saltwater fish pond, complete with riverbed stones imported from East Timor and Bali.
Cashing in on that Avatar money, Landau and his wife Julie bought the home for $5.8 million in 2010. According to the Wall Street Journal
, Landau is now spending most of his time in New Zealand filming the upcoming “Avatar” sequels, so he's putting the pad on the market for $13.999 million.
If the home does in fact sell at this price, it would be a new record for the Florida Keys, since the current highest selling home in the area peaked at $13.125 million.
