The LA mansion featured beautifully kept lawns, palm trees and a pool that wouldn't look out of place in a Mediterranean villa. The property also boasted three separate balconies, patio doors, a water fountain and several stone sculptures. Sir Tom's home spread over half an acre of land. The home's interior stood in stark contrast to the LA vibe of its exterior and was much more eclectic in style. Leopard print was a recurring motif in the house across its floors, walls and furniture - all decorated by Linda. Wood-framed paintings hung on the walls, and two wooden giraffes stood tall on either side of the marble fireplace.
