The mansion in Maine, in the United States, that the actor John Travolta, 67, shared with his now-deceased wife, actress Kelly Preston, was put up for sale.
The protagonist of “Grease” and “Saturday Night Fever” requests for the house located in Islesboro, an island off the coast of Maine, 5 million dollars, according to the Portland Press Herald newspaper.

The couple bought the property in 1991 when they first got married and remodeled it from a “very dark and gloomy” house to a bright family home for their unborn son Jett, according to a 1999 report in Architectural Digest. Built in 1903, the 1,000-square-meter (10,830-square-foot) home has 20 rooms and stands on a 19-hectare (48-acre) property along the ocean.
Travolta told Architectural Digest that he and Preston bought the house after visiting actress Kirstie Alley at her home on the island. The couple said they always wanted to have a house big enough to host dozens of family members.
