In August 2007, Cage purchased a home in Middletown, Rhode Island. The 24,000-square-foot, brick-and-stone country manor occupies 26 acres, has 12 bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and ocean views and borders the Norman Bird Sanctuary. The estate is called the “Grey Craig”. The sale ranked among the state’s most expensive residential purchases, eclipsed by the 2007 $17.15 million sale of the Miramar mansion on Bellevue Avenue in Newport. Also in 2007, the actor purchased Midford Castle in Somerset, England. Shortly after selling his German castle, Cage also put homes in Rhode Island, Louisiana, Nevada, and California, as well as a $7 million island in the Bahamas, up for sale.
Nicolas Cage remains one of Hollywood’s highest paid actors, earning $40 million in 2009 according to Forbes Magazine.
