Wouldn’t you love a chance to spend a night or more—it has rented monthly for $250,000—living it up in Queen Sophie-Anne’s (Evan Rachel Wood), very True Blood-style, 8-acre, Malibu oceanfront estate?

If you answered yes, then you should hear (and see) some neat details of this totally unique mansion, ‘La Villa Contenta’, that makes it truly ‘fit-for-a queen.’

The centerpiece for many of the True Blood scenes was in the breathtaking, gilded natatorium with it’s striking glass ceilings and eye-popping half-million shells-lined walls. A total dream house for both fangbangers and vampires!

The estate is on the market for $34.5 million with a 1.52-acre parcel (but if you want the entire 8-acre parcel, it will cost $75 million). The three-story home features 11,500 square feet of space, 4 bedrooms, 8.5 baths, a screening room, two maid’s houses, a guesthouse, a gym and nine fireplaces.

Not only does the home look like a Hollywood star’s palace–it actually has been in a number of films and television shows besides True Blood. La Villa Contenta can be seen both in Adam Sandler’s comedy ‘Funny People’ and in Paul Rudd’s ‘I Love You, Man.’

One must admit though, the home truly got a ‘star turn’ when it was featured in multiple episodes of True Blood as Queen Sophie-Anne’s ‘palace.’

Of course, for Truebies the best part was Queen Sophie-Anne’s famous daylight natatorium, which True Blood Production Designer Suzuki Ingerslev says took her breath away:

After all the location scouting I have done over the years, in my opinion, nothing even comes close to the amount of detail that went into this pool house. We all just stood there and took the room in the first time we went there, and pictures don’t even begin to do it justice. The statues, chandeliers, chair rail and ceilings are all made out of a variety of various sizes of seashells and corals. It is astounding, and we could never accomplish this on our budget, and time frame. It is truly breathtaking and exquisite.

    The house seems to nice to live in. I would be afraid of damaging something. I would like to see it on the show again. I guess that won’t happen now that it is up for sale and QSA isn’t living there. I’m not sure what will become of QSA. Yes, there still might be the summit.

    So does this mean that the queen lost the battle with Bill??

      I don’t think so b/c the queen needs to be around the the summit in Rhodes and that’s from future books. Besides the queen is living in Russell’s home now that she thinks she inherited being his wife. Will be interesting to see what happens when Russell comes back. LOL!!
