J.J. Abrams, 54, who wrote and directed “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker,” initially purchased the five-bedroom, seven-bathroom property with his wife, Katie McGrath, in 2014 for $14.47 million.
The purchase was around the time his blockbuster franchise hit began filming. J.J. Abrams — already famous for directing movies from the “Star Trek” and “Mission Impossible” universes — directed, produced, and co-wrote the seventh movie in the “Star Wars” franchise.
“The Force Awakens” went on to become one of the highest-grossing movies of all time. The acclaimed creator is also known for his innovative shows, such as “Felicity,” “Alias,” and “Lost,” for which he won two Emmys. His East Coast-style traditional home hit the market on April 28, property records show.
Spanning 7,396 square-feet, the home includes a sun-drenched game room, and an open cooks’ kitchen that leads into a family room with a large breakfast space. There’s also another sitting area through french doors to the covered outdoor living room with a fireplace, heaters, a pool and spa, bocce court and carefully designed gardens.
