American Actress and Political Activist Jane Fonda sure know how to live it big, swapping one luxury castle for another and making extra bucks in the process. The 84-year-old's former mansion, sold for $8.5 million, is a sight to behold with eye-popping modern-day pieces.

The Hollywood star and her former partner, Richard Perry, spent eight years of bliss together in the romantic fairytale castle guaranteed to make every day seem like a vacation.

After their split, the former couple sold the lavishly built estate at an unbelievably discounted price, several million short of the initial asking price of $12.995 million. Here is everything to know about Fonda's relationship with Perry and the beautiful property.

INSIDE THE LUXURY HOME

The Beverly Hills mansion, which was eventually sold at the stated amount, was undoubtedly worth every dollar, with a terrific hillside location within Trousdale Estate. Before Fonda and Perry bought the property, they looked at more than thirty houses.

Finally, they fell in love with the modernist Beverly Hills mansion and eventually purchased it. During an interview, Fonda revealed that she was convinced it was the one for her and her man as soon as she spotted the house.

She said the place was classy and made her feel comfortable. The actress knew it was a place where she and her music producer partner would live happily.

The two-story castle, which comprises eight bedrooms, contemporary bathrooms, exquisite bamboo flooring, glass-walled elevator, and extravagant bars, was rightly described by Jade Mills and Valerie Fitzgerald as "7100 square feet of luxury."

The two Coldwell Banker Global luxury agents gave viewers a glimpse of the four-bedroom house via a video clip shared on YouTube.

The first stop was a luxury sitting room conjoined with a large dining area. The spread of high ceilings, stone infused fireplace, and a wet bar gave the massive living area a dreamy look.

The vast outdoor space spared no detail. The sturdy stone desk was surrounded by cozy seats, an outdoor fireplace, an adjustable temperature pool, and the perfect ocean view overlooking the sunset. Jane Fonda and Richard Perry's former estate is indeed several feet of luxury.

JANE FONDA'S NEXT HOUSE

Sadly, the pair split, and the "Grace and Frankie" star abandoned the Beverly Hills luxury for a 6,679 square feet Los Angeles mansion which she purchased at $5.45 million.

The Mediterranean-style mansion, built in 2015, boasts four bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a huge private courtyard, a terrace, and many windows.

Last year, Fonda sat down with SELF and opened up about her love life and why she is happy being single.

FONDA AND PERRY'S RELATIONSHIP

Jane Fonda and her former boyfriend dated for eight years from 2009, before they split in 2017, shortly before her 80th birthday. They spent most of their time together at the Hollywood icon's Beverly Hills home.

However, their time together hit a rough patch after the duo decided to move on as friends, putting a stop to their almost decade-long relationship. Perry referred to the breakup as a shift in the direction of their lives, and Fonda could not agree more.

The mother of three, who had been married and divorced thrice, allegedly went through with the split, following her children's advice.

The political activist's children — Troy, Vanessa, and adopted daughter, Luana encouraged their mother to break up with Perry if the relationship made her unhappy. Fonda heeded her children's advice and has since found happiness in singledom.

THE TWO FORMER LOVERS

Although the pair are not intimate anymore, they remain excellent friends and do things together. Fonda and the music producer still have a great deal of love for each other. In a statement to People, the latter mentioned:

"We continue to maintain a close friendship and care deeply about each other. Jane has rededicated herself to activism, and I am finishing my memoirs..."

Although Fonda appeared to be living well after the breakup, she experienced some difficult moments, including fighting cancer. One year after they separated, the actress became a cancer survivor, following a surgery that removed a cancerous growth from her lip.

LIFE AFTER THE SPLIT

As Perry said, Fonda is focused on impacting the world as an activist. In 2019, she moved to Washington for four months to fight global warming alongside Swedish Activist Greta Thunberg. The actress organized teach-ins and weekly rallies in front of the capitol.

Fonda said she was moved to speak up after she read the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and realized that the global warming crisis was moving quickly towards them.

Five years have passed since Fonda and Perry broke up, and while the actress may be interested in dating again, she had no interest in getting married.

In a chat before the 2021 Golden Globe award night, the star noted that she had never had a successful marriage, and she did not want to.

Fonda said she lived alone and was free to watch whatever she wanted. The freedom made her realize that she never wanted to be married again. At 84, the actress is single and loves it.

Last year, Fonda sat down with SELF to open up about her love life and why she is happy being single. The actress made it known that she had never had a problem being alone.

According to Fonda, she lived with her dog, and its presence was essential. The actress said she does not get lonely because she reads, writes a lot, and is very active on social media.

Fonda also has an assistant and a man who takes care of things at home and sometimes keeps her company. Although Fonda's fans would be happy to see her in love again, they can only support her decisions and hope for the best.
