Popular Hollywood star Johnny Depp was on the verge of losing two of his homes in West Hollywood — but was able to take out a $10 million loan to save them.
Records show that his smaller house on N. Sweetzer Avenue, which faced foreclosure back in 2016 in the amount of $4.28 million, was in full reconveyance after the actor paid what was due.
Depp took out the massive loan back in March on the other home — known for its uncanny resemblance to a gothic replica of a Bavarian castle. That castle-shaped home went into a $5 million default in 2018.
Per Daily Mail, Depp was forced to take out the eight-figure home loan with City National Bank — nicknamed the “bank to the stars” for its bumper borrowing deals to A-listers — after blowing his $650 million fortune on litigation with Amber Heard and other reckless spending.
Occupying 7,430 square feet, the property takes after a set of a horror movie, replete with turrets and towers. Depp purchased the eight-bedroom, 10-bathroom home in 1995 for $2.15 million.
Near the storied Sunset Strip, it’s virtually hidden from view — located on a cul-de-sac, behind lush foliage and trees planted for privacy. All that can be seen from street level is the front gate.
“We were getting these vans with open tops and the people are talking, and cheering and yelling, and it’s been annoying,” John Ryan, 63, who’s lived on the street for 28 years, previously told The Post.
The home seems to be in a deteriorated state, however. Overgrown trees surround the property.
