Don Johnson and wife Kelley Phleger just put their Santa Barbara mansion on the market for $14.9 million, a year after purchasing it for only $12.5 million.

The 3-acre gated property boasts 4 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, in addition to a 1-bedroom guest apartment. There is also a gym and a swimming pool located on the sprawling grounds.

"This magnificent French Country estate presents an uncompromising lifestyle where casual elegance meets sophisticated charm in an idyllic natural setting. Hidden away on a cul-de-sac behind a private gate, this exquisite home was masterfully rebuilt with the utmost attention to detail and with no expenses spared in quality and craftsmanship," reads the listing.

So why is the actor parting with such a magnificent piece of land? "The only reason Kelley and I are moving from this house is because we found a horse property and wanted to experience that way of living in Montecito," the Hollywood star told The Wall Street Journal.

The pair have been married since 1999 and have three children together.

Poppy Montgomery Lists Dreamy Brentwood Home Just One Year After Buying It

poppy-m-home-main-700.jpg

Poppy Montgomery has listed her Brentwood pad for $3.695 million, and while we're in love with it, apparently she wasn't, seeing as she bought it just one year ago for $3.6 million. Er, either that or she's worried about finances after her latest TV show got cancelled!

The 3,089-square-foot Spanish-style hacienda has 3 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, and there is a den, a library, an office and according to listing info, the kitchen is "an entertainer's dream with state of the art appliances and a large center island." The family room features vaulted beamed ceilings and a large fireplace, and the upstairs master is like a "soothing romantic retreat with a fireplace, tree top views and a spa-like bath."

Outside the home boasts "mesmerizing views of the private vineyard and hills beyond," and there is a sparkling pool and a terrace overlooking the backyard.

Poppy has been on a number of TV programs so we're sure she'll find another gig, but the Aussie actress hasn't had the best luck with real estate. In April 2012 she sold her Pacific Palisades for $2.88 million, which was a $250,000 loss ... yikes!

Peek Inside Mel Gibson's $30 Million Costa Rican Villa

It's weird he hasn't found a buyer for this place, because it's awesome!

Mel Gibson listed his Costa Rican estate, which comes with its own 500 acre private jungle, for $29.7 million last year, but nobody has made an offer on the property yet!

The Spanish Colonial-style home, comprised of three villas, is located on Playa Barrigona, which is so secluded that it's the perfect place for a celebrity to go for some undisturbed vacation time.

"Rarely marked on maps, Playa Barrigona is such a haven of solitude and serenity that Olive Ridley sea turtles travel thousands of miles across the Pacific each year to lay their eggs on this beach," reads the listing.

If only we had more money in the bank!

Mark Zuckerberg Drops $115 Million On 750 Acres Of Land In Kauai

And this news broke the same day it was revealed that the Facebook founder donated a whopping $25 million to the Centers for Disease Control to help combat the deadly Ebola outbreak. But remember, the Zuck is worth an estimated $33.3 billion, so this is all just a drop in the bucket!

Anyway, the rumors are apparently true: Mark Zuckerberg has purchased 750 acres of land on Kauai's north shore, and it cost him a little over $115 million. Two properties are included in the parcel -- the first is the 357-acre Kahu’aina Plantation, which includes 2,500 feet of white sand beach, and the second is Pila'a Beach, a 393-acre isolated oceanfront property adjacent to the plantation.

The plantation, which has a working organic farm, set Zuckerberg back $66 mil, while Pila'a cost $49.8 million. Technically, the tech billionaire has an 89.2% stake in the second property, so he doesn't own it outright, but given how private he is, we can't imagine he'd buy it unless it came with certain guarantees.

The plantation has approval for 80 houses, but of course, Zuckerberg only plans to build one. Maybe a guest home too? I mean, he's got enough space...
