It’s not quite the Millennium Falcon, but this 10,000-square-foot spread is not too shabby either.

George Lucas just bought the Mi Patria estate in Bel Air for $33.9 million in an off-market deal. 
Spanning just under an acre, the compound belonged to Ross Perot, who acquired it in 2013 for $18 million, Variety reported. Built in 1929, the Spanish villa has five bedrooms and eight bathrooms.

According to 2013 marketing materials, the home features a double-height foyer, a formal dining room with French doors, an eat-in kitchen, and a library that’s also a 35mm screening room.

Lucas chose L.A.’s Exposition Park as the site for his $1 billion Museum of Narrative Art, he announced in January, after 10 years of planning. [Variety]Cathaleen Chen
