Oscar winner Michael Douglas has starred in some of the greatest films of the past century — but it’s his latest role as a real estate voiceover actor that has everyone talking.

In an attempt to sell his vacation home, Douglas upped the ante on the normal real estate video by deciding to narrate it himself. In the two-and-a-half minute video, Douglas walks would-be buyers through his mid-19th-century estate, called S'Estaca, and honestly, hearing his voice does kind of make you want to buy it.

In the video, Douglas explains, the estate, located along the coast in Mallorca, was first built by Archduke Ludvig Salvator.

“He had fallen in love with Mallorca, so different in every way to the formality of the royal court Vienna,” Douglas says. According to Douglas’ voice over, Salvator used the property to lure in Empress Cici of Austria and even built a baiting house just for her, which he carved directly into the estate’s rocky facade. Like the archduke, Douglas too immediately fell for the estate’s charms.

“When I first saw S’Estaca in 1990, I also fell under its spell and bought the property,” Douglas says in the video. “Many of my friends have stayed at S’Estaca and we have enjoyed wonderful times here together.” According to Architectural Digest, the famous guests who have spent time there include Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Jack Nicholson.

Douglas spent 30 years modernizing the home, which now comes with five separate apartments and 10 bedrooms. The estate also comes with its own olive grove and vineyard.

“My life has taken a new course, and now it’s time for me to let someone else enjoy the privilege and adventure of S’Estaca,” Douglas says. “Someone who will appreciate the beauty, the privacy and the uninterrupted views. Someone with the vision and the spirit of the creator of S’Estaca, Archduke Ludvig Salvator.”

The asking price for the estate is $32.38 million.
