Apparently when it comes to his Montecito real estate holdings, the dude does not abide.

Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges has put his four-acre compound in Montecito on the market for $8 million, the Los Angeles Times reported. The property on San Leandro Lane includes a 100-year old Spanish Revival-style home, guesthouse, pool house, carriage house and horse facility.

Bridges and his wife, Susan Geston, purchased the compound in 2014 for $6.9 million, and remodeled the interior in 2016.

It was built in 1919 by James Osborne Craig. The 3,300-square-foot main home has one story with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The property features a brick patio, pool and spa, as well as gardens, redwoods, oak groves and orchards.

Bridges previously lived in a another Montecito pad for more than 20 years. He sold the 19.5-acre vineyard estate in Villa Santa Lucia for almost $16 million in 2017, the Times reported.

Bridges, son of actor Lloyd Bridges, starred in “Crazy Heart,” “The Big Lebowski” and “True Grit.” He and his brother Beau also inherited a Malibu beach pad from their mother, who purchased it in the 1950s.

Montecito frequently attracts celebrity homebuyers like Rob Lowe, Oprah Winfrey and Natalie Portman, and it still does despite devastating mudslides a year and a half ago. Most recently, Ellen DeGeneres purchased another mansion there for $27 million, and adult film company owner Bill Asher bought a compound for $15 million. [LAT]Gregory Cornfield
