London: Landon Donavan has put his 4.3-million-dollar California beach mansion up for sale amid rumours that he will be returning to the English Premier League.

The fancy 6.5 bedroom house was ideal during his time, as the star player for the Los Angeles Galaxy, where he played alongside aging midfielder David Beckham, who was this week humiliatingly left out of the Great Britain Olympic squad.

The 30-year-old footie spent two successful loan spells at the reigning Merseyside kings Everton in 2010 and earlier this year.

The beach mansion described as “the ultimate tree section compound,” sits on a spacious 9,278 square foot lot, a newspaper reported.

And the unusual property is actually composed of two individual structures on a tiered, double tree section hilltop lot.

The main house sits on the upper half of the site and features a floorplan in the “great room” style.

The living space, which is rustic Mediterranean in style, boasts impressive 11 foot high ceilings.

Meanwhile the site orientation, which is southfacing from the shared hilltop lots with west facing the back garden means that the interiors get plenty of natural light.

The main house is relatively new, and was built by Moloney Development in 2007 and 2008.

The listing has said that the main house “features an eclectic mix of antique French terra-cotta floor tiles, wide plank barnwood flooring, custom wrought ironwork, unique lighting fixtures and Walker Zanger tile and slab stone work. Groin vault, coffered and vaulted ceilngs.”

At pool level, is the spa and home gym also installed are a massage room, sauna, steam bath, cold plunge and Jacuzzi in addition it has a downstairs home theatre, a 300 bottle Wine Cellar and a night club installed upstairs next to a guest suite.
