Arnold Schwarzenegger's Former Home Sold for $12.9 Million: Property Was Family Home, Site of Housekeeper Affair [PHOTOS]

Arnold Schwarzenegger's former Pacific Palisades home recently sold for $12.9 million after spending two years on the market.

 The property was listed for sale in 2011. That year, Schwarzenegger's name hit headlines because news surfaced of his affair with his housekeeper, who worked in the home for 20 years.

Schwarzenegger and wife Maria Shriver lived in the house from 1986, the year they were married, to 2003.

Schwarzenegger's extramarital affair with Mildred Baena, as well as their illegitimate son Joseph, now 15, was publicly revealed in May 2011.

The Terminator actor claimed in interviews that he himself did not know about Joseph until the child was eight years old.

Designed in a Mediterranean style typical of homes in the area, the 10,000-square-foot villa sits at the end of a long gated driveway and was built in 1982 but has been remodeled since, with a total of 9 bedrooms, 9.5 baths, a large pool, cabana and championship-size tennis court.

The grounds, spanning 2.48 acres, include expansive lawns, gardens and a duck pond. The property also provides direct access to Will Rogers State Historic Park horse trails and polo fields.

In 2002, Schwarzenegger and Shriver purchased another Brentwood home, which they still own today.

Despite a breakup that was very public, Schwarzenegger and Shriver are in no rush to finalize their divorce, reported the New York Daily News.

Schwarzenegger and Shriver are parents to Katherine, 24, Christina, 21, Patrick, 19, and Christopher, 15.

While the couple announced their separation on May 9, 2011, there have been reports speculating that they may have reconciled.

According to TMZ, the actor-turned-politician told a German newspaper in January: "We're not fighting any war. I still hope for reconciliation. I still love Maria."
