22,000,000$$ John Travolta’s Private Airport House With 2 Runways
The front drive of the Travolta house. Travolta’s vintage Thunderbird is in the front drive of the residence, which was designed by architect Dana Smith. Construction of the house lasted two years, but “the plan took, on and off, about six years,” Travolta says. “We moved into the guest quarters for a while to oversee it.”
A games table in the great room. “It was always John’s dream to have planes in his front yard—to practically be able to pull up to the house—so that when you wanted to go to dinner, all you’d have to do was step out the door, get on the plane and whisk off,” Kelly Preston says of her aviation-mad husband John Travolta.
The great room. Curved window walls define the great room, which looks onto the tarmac. “Michael Eisner was our first dinner guest,” says Travolta, a seasoned pilot and owner of two jets. “He looked at our planes and said, “ ‘My God, I get it. Within an hour we can be on our way to Paris.’ ” Above the mantelpiece is a 1967 work by Alexander Calder.
