Although she still has to pay a $10.3 million judgment, Amber Heard hasn’t let that stop her from continuing to earn money. As TMZ first revealed, and property records confirm, the “Aquaman” actress’ mysterious and once-secret Yucca Valley, Calif. has ever been offered for public sale. The secret deal was signed for nearly $1.1 million, nearly double the $570,000 Heard paid for the Mojave Desert digs just three years ago, in early 2019.
The big profit comes as no surprise, as home values in the desert have skyrocketed since the COVID-19 pandemic. Records show the cash buyers, a non-famous married couple, have no known connection to Heard: He is a Las Vegas-based entrepreneur in the insurance industry, his wife and his longtime secretary.
Although it has been Heard’s main residence for several years – and photos clearly taken at the property have been posted on his public Instagram account in recent months – the existence of the house has only been widely known. in May, when Heard declared his city of residence in televised testimony publicly during the media circus that was the Depp v. Heard.
No word yet on where the Heard real estate train will stop next, but the glamorous actress has reportedly been living in the Hamptons for the past few months, or practically a world away from the desolate landscape of her former Yucca Valley neighborhood.
Yet some might say there is something particularly beautiful about this particular six-acre property, in all its rocky, forbidding natural splendor. Built in 2015 and located approximately 10 miles west of Joshua Tree National Park, the home features three bedrooms and three bathrooms on over 2,400 square feet. Other amenities include an attached three car garage, concrete floors, LED lighting throughout, surround sound system, and a very custom 110 foot wooden deck in the back yard.
