Craig had owned the home for over three decades, purchasing it with her late husband and business partner, Sidney Craig, as her eponymous weight-loss program experienced astronomical success in the 1980s.

The gated compound-like structure opens to an enormous driveway with enough parking for 18 cars, plus an indoor garage with room for four more vehicles, Willis Allen Real Estate representatives said.

Built around a central pool and spa, is a two story home designed to merge with the lush outdoors surrounding it, with many of the main living spaces focused around the floor-to-ceiling windows that face out to the ocean, which is just steps from the back-door.

Offering 7,625 square feet of space, the tan-color compound offers bright common spaces, accented with while walls and Saltillo tiled floors.
