Actor Christian Slater buys Florida home for $2.2 million

Actor Christian Slater has purchased a home in Coconut Grove, Fla., for $2.2 million.

Called Villa Dolce Far Niente and built in 1928, the estate centers on a Spanish-style home with four bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and 2,971 square feet of living space.

Features include an eat-in kitchen with marble floors, arched mahogany French doors, a misted patio area and a swimming pool.

Slater, who went house-hunting with fiancee Brittany Lopez, got his start at age 7 on the soap opera “The Edge of Night.”

The 43-year-old actor stars in this year’s films “The Power of Few” and “Assassins Run.” Other film credits include “Interview With the Vampire: The Vampire Chronicles” (1994), “True Romance” (1993) and “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves” (1991).

He and Lopez are planning a backyard wedding in July.

The property previously sold in 2011 for $1.8 million.

Taylor Corey of Coldwell Banker’s Coral Gables office represented Slater in the deal.
