If you ever wanted to live in a lake house previously owned by apparently-retiring actor James Woods, there is now an easy way to do it.

Woods recently announced that he has retired from the entertainment business, according to a press release. Selling the home, as well as several of his other “real estate holdings on both coasts,” is part of his plan to "simplify his life."

“It is with a mixture of joy and sadness that I present this property to be sold,” Woods noted in the release, adding that the home has been in his family for decades. “It has been a part of my family’s copious fantastic memories of great times in Rhode Island, a state that I still call home.”

While the address was not disclosed, Woods, 70, said the house consists of two lakefront properties. Some of its most notable features include beaches, as well as multiple dock areas and a cobblestone boat ramp.

The 2,087-square-foot, 3 bedroom/2.5 bathroom house is listed for close to $1.4 million.

“The first home has been lovingly restored using period and reclaimed materials to keep its authentic feel,” the release stated. “The second home built in more recent years is a classic shingle style waterfront residence crafted with only the finest products available today.”

Allen Gammons Jr. of Berkshire Hathaway Gammons Realty in East Greenwich described the property as “awe-inspiring.”

“It has been a pleasure watching Jimmy care for his family home over the years, and while I know it is sad for him to part with it, he is anxious to find a new owner that will find the joy and love of family and friends at this special place,” he said.

Gammons told the Associated Press Woods' retirement has nothing to do with the friction his conservative political views have caused in Hollywood.

Woods said his retirement will give him more time to “enjoy his many passions,” such as traveling, photography, antiquing, golfing, and poker.
