According to the Wall Street Journal, Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn have listed their home in Marin County, California, about 18 miles north of San Francisco, for $15 milion. The Penns purchased the property in 1996 for $2.1 million, and spent two years rebuilding the original 1933 Spanish-style house. The manse doesn't appear to be listed publicly, but the WSJ said:
The 10,000-square-foot house was designed with hand-hewn wood-beamed ceilings and floors, stone fireplaces and hand-painted tiles in the bathrooms and kitchen. The two-story home has five bedrooms, a home office, an au pair suite, a gym, and a three-car garage. A two-bedroom guest cottage has its own two-car garage. There's also a pool, tennis court, gardens, and dog run.

You'll have to look at the photos to tell me your thoughts, but I must admit that I'm pretty dismayed by the couple's décor choices. To begin, the hand-painted kitchen tile floors remind me of those hideous leather patchwork purses that are trendy among hipsters these days. Although it does have a pretty stunning, walk-in, stone fireplace, the living room is boring (beige curtains on beige walls), and too lodgy for Marin Country. The Spanish-style exterior is pretty nice, though; it reminds me a bit of Reese Witherspoon's Ojai home. What do you think? Worth $15 million?
