Hollywood couple Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn have put their San Francisco-area home on the market for $15 million.
The house is in the small Marin County town of Ross, about 18 miles north of San Francisco. The Penns bought the 2.2-acre property in 1996 for $2.1 million and spent more than two years rebuilding the 1933 Spanish-style house, says Coldwell Banker broker John McGeough, who has the listing.

The 10,000-square-foot house was designed with hand-hewn wood-beamed ceilings and floors, stone fireplaces and hand-painted tiles in the bathrooms and kitchen. The two-story home has five bedrooms, a home office, an au pair suite, a gym and a three-car garage. A two-bedroom guest cottage has its own two-car garage. There’s also a pool, tennis court, gardens and dog run.
A representative for Mr. Penn, who won an Academy Award for best actor for 2003′s “Mystic River,” and his wife, who received a Golden Globe nomination for best supporting actress for 1994′s “Forrest Gump,” declined to comment on where the couple planned to move.
