One of the most popular actors not only in ABS-CBN but also nationwide is John Lloyd Cruz. People would fall in line in cinemas for his movies, would have sleepless night watching his TV shows and dramas, and buy all the things that he endorses.
John Lloyd Cruz has initially rejected the idea of having his glamorous house featured in any magazine. According to YES! Magazine, Cruz said:
Dati sinasabi ko, ayoko talaga, ayokong ipakita iyong space ko. Ayokong ipakita iyong ginagalawan ko sa bahay.
But after thorough thinking and giving back to his supporters, JL, as he is popularly known, finally agreed to give people a glimpse of his house.
His Comfort Zone
According to PEP.ph, Cruz has always wanted a French Mediterranean-inspired design for his house. This 1,100 square meter home is located in the religious and cool city of Antipolo.
Ang gusto ko talaga, parang magmukha siyang bahay sa L.A., like French Mediterranean. Sa loob, American iyong feel.
Whenever the Kapamilya star is in his house, he feels relaxed and comfortable.
Luxury and Style
The living room of the house has a cathedral ceiling to give more breathing time for people. There are also two doors near the staircase, leading to an entertainment room and lavatory.
The dining area has a 10-seater narra dining table which acts as the centerpiece of the space and gives you a great view of the garden and the pool.
Under the stairs near the living room and dining area is a powder room which, according to PEP.ph, has a urinal that costs PHP 75,000 and a flush around PHP 35,000.
The kitchen is similar to the kitchens of cooking shows. There are an American manufactured double-door fridge and an ice and water dispenser.
Outside the house, there is a four-foot pond filled with koi fish that makes a great facade of the house. It also has a big swimming pool in the backyard.
The house has an 80 square meter guesthouse with its very own two bedrooms, living room, eating and cooking area, and a bathroom. It was completed before the major residence was finished.
John Lloyd Cruz’s house just shows how hard he worked as an actor and endorser. This is a living proof that with perseverance and luck, you can definitely reach your dreams.
