Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank has reportedly split with her boyfriend of five years, Hollywood agent John Campisi, and apparently their break up has brought about the sale of their shared Pacific Palisades home, which Swank bought in March 2007 for $5.8M. The 6,700-square-foot, six-bedroom, 6.5-bath Mediterranean mansion is a far cry from the car Swank and her mother lived in when they first moved to Hollywood. Originally built in 1928, the house was substantially modified and renovated by L.A.-area starchitect Marc Appleton, with interiors by NYC-based designer Mark Zeff. (UPDATE: Or was it Peter Dunham?) Listed for $9.495M, the mansion features a 17-seat home theater and a wine/cigar room, with peeks at the Pacific. Art enthusiasts may also be interested to know that this house also lies just downhill from the artists retreat at Villa Aurora, where writers Thomas Mann and Bertolt Brecht and filmmaker Fritz Lang met after escaping Nazi persecution during World War II.
