Soap star Drake Hogestyn is ready to sell the Malibu retreat where he has no doubt spent many days of his life. It is up for sale at $4.995 million.

The Tuscan-style two-story, built in 2002, features wood-beam ceilings, French doors, hardwood floors, decks and balconies. There are fireplaces in the living room, family room and master suite of the 6,616-square-foot house, which has a total of five bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms. The grounds of about an acre include a circular driveway, a swimming pool, sycamore trees, fruit trees and an herb garden.

Hogestyn, 59, has been on “Days of Our Lives” since 1986, with a few breaks as he was thought to be killed off and then returned to the show. Before that he was on the series “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers” (1982-83).

The property was purchased in 2003 for $2.9 million, public records show.

Irene Dazzan-Palmer and Sandro Dazzan of Coldwell Banker’s Malibu Colony office are the listing agents.
