We see Jon Landau’s future, and it’s not in Florida.
Record and film producer Jon Landau listed his Plantation Key home for nearly $ 14 million, the Wall Street Journal reports, as the man who once picked Bruce Springsteen as the the future of rock’n’roll leaves for New Zealand with his mate James Cameron to produce three “Avatar“Suites.
If he sold at that price, he would break a record for the Florida Keys, which currently stands at $ 13.125 million, according to the newspaper.
The 4-acre property consists of a two-bedroom main house, a one-bedroom apartment, and three guest modules, each with separate entrances. The beachfront grounds include a dock with a staircase leading to a snorkeling area, a swimming pool, a hot tub with fireplace, a lighted tennis court, and a covered walkway with a kitchen. There is also a pond filled with tropical fish.
Like an “Avatar”, the estate is teeming with fauna, with some 350 species of plants, each cataloged via QR codes that inform visitors about the research Landau, 61, has carried out on names, origins and the history of plants.
Landau bought the house with his wife, Julie, in 2010 for $ 5.8 million, shortly after working on “Avatar”. It was built in 2001 by the father-daughter architectural team of David and Heidi Harum. Landau named the estate “Bali Hai”, recalling the couple’s honeymoon in Tahiti in 1985, Landau told the newspaper.
The house also has a wine cellar and a games room.
The new “Avatar” films are slated for release between 2022 and 2026, with two in post-production and the third in production, according to IMDB.
He has also been the manager of rock star Bruce Springsteen since the mid-1970s.
