The Dude abides — by this sale.

After listing the home two years ago, actor Jeff Bridges has finally sold his 5-bedroom, 5.5 bath house for just under $16 million.

Bridges — best known for his roles in “The Big Lebowski,” “Crazy Heart,” and “Hell or High Water” — bought the property in 1994 from “Footloose” musician Kenny Loggins. Bridges originally listed the property for $29.5 million in 2015.

The home resembles an Italian villa with ivy-covered walls, a terra-cotta roof, and a massive, hand-carved door. The property, dubbed Villa Santa Lucia, is set on 19 wooded acres, and offers views of the Pacific Ocean.

The sunken living room boasts an antique stone fireplace and wood-beamed ceilings. Nearby chandeliers are adorned with Murano glass, and the master bedroom features its own intimate sitting area next to a fireplace.

There are musical artifacts — including a stash of guitars — throughout the home (Bridges won an Oscar for his role as a singer in “Crazy Heart,” and has released several albums). And, in case you’re looking for a place to stash that “nice marmot,” there’s a 770-square-foot guest cottage with skylight and galley kitchen.

French doors open from the living room to a terrace overlooking the ocean in the distance. The backyard’s turquoise pool features a small waterfall. For chillier nights, the patio also offers an outdoor fireplace.

The new owners will have a selection of A-list celebrities as neighbors, including Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey, and even Al Gore.

Susan Perkins of Sotheby’s International Realty carried the listing.
