Reese Witherspoon English Country-Inspired House Listed For $25 Million
Laura Jeanne Reese Witherspoon, better known as Reese Witherspoon, is an American actress and film producer who appeared in a wide range of genres but was perhaps best known for her romantic comedies, in which she often portrayed charming yet determined characters.
Films and tv shows
In 1991 she made her big-screen debut, portraying a tomboy in The Man in the Moon. That coming-of-age drama was critically acclaimed, and Witherspoon garnered accolades for her performance. Other roles followed, including a supporting role on the television miniseries Return to Lonesome Dove (1993), before she took a break from acting to briefly attend Stanford University in 1994–95.
In 1996, Witherspoon appeared in Freeway and followed that appearance with roles in three major 1998 movies: “Overnight Delivery”, “Pleasantville”, and “Twilight”. The following year, Witherspoon appeared in the critically acclaimed Election, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination.
Her early critical successes included roles in films such as : Pleasantville and Election”, but it was her portrayal of Elle Woods in the box office hit “Legally Blonde”, a romantic comedy in which she played Elle Woods, a spoiled sorority girl who follows her ex-boyfriend to Harvard Law School; she reprised the role for the 2003 sequel, that marked a turning point in her career. Witherspoon went on to win an Academy Award in 2005 for her role in “Walk the Line”. Suddenly, Witherspoon was America’s Sweetheart, an eight-figure star with the power to cherry-pick projects like “Sweet Home Alabama” and “Vanity Fair”. Recent films include Water for Elephants”, “This Means War” and “Wild”, for which she received another Oscar nomination. Witherspoon also enjoyed success on television as a producer and co-star of David E. Kelley’s award-winning TV series, “Big Little Lies”.
Reese Witherspoon stands to make a quick buck
Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth, have popped a hefty $25 million price tag on their Brentwood home in Los Angeles. The sprawling estate is reminiscent of an English countryside, except it’s conveniently located in one of the most secluded streets in LA. Not only is the street location incredibly private, but the property itself is located at the end of a winding driveway lined by trees, so it boasts a level of privacy that is relatively hard to come by in Hollywood. Behind a front gate, the driveway ends in a circular motor court that goes up to the front door and a three-car garage.
The property is perfect for a high-profile celebrity seeking residential privacy and seclusion. Tucked away on a private lane off the main Mandeville Canyon drag, the house sits behind big gates, ancient trees and a long, winding driveway, with the entire place completely invisible to the public. Built in the early ’90s, the country English-inspired estate remains much the same elegant estate it always has been, albeit now with some pricey contemporary updates. For those updates, and not to forget the two years of skyrocketing property values, Witherspoon is now eyeing a hefty return against the nearly $16 million she originally paid.
Witherspoon-Toths gave the home’s exterior a creamy white nip and tuck. Inside, the foyer’s marble floors are all-new, as are the grand staircase’s wrought iron railing and the wooden stairs. The living room is much lighter and brighter than before, thanks to a big splash of white paint and new white oak floors.
The kitchen appears completely redone, and there are top-of-the-line new appliances. Once a dark and masculine affair, the library has been given a glitzy blue makeover. On the second floor is the owner’s wing, which has ’boutique’ walk-in closets, an office or nursery, and four en-suite bathrooms. The house has 10 French doors that open to a ‘rolling front lawn and a sweeping back lawn’ with canyon views. aThe backyard has a blue-tiled pool and spa, with a limestone barbecue and eight-seat bar.
