Jodie Foster Finally Sheds Bird Streets Nest for $5 Million

After more than a year, several price chops and a change of high-powered real estate agents, Jodie Foster has finally sold her former home in the star-studded Bird Streets nabe for $4,995,000. The famously semi-reclusive two-time Oscar winner acquired the property in 1995 for an unknown amount from supermodel and actress Cheryl Tiegs, and first put the 6,060-square-foot red brick residence on the open market in June 2013, for $6,399,000.

Listing details show the fully updated 1930s residence, tucked privately behind locked gates and high hedges, has four bedrooms and five bathrooms in the main house, plus guest/staff quarters above the two-car attached garage.

There’s a skylit entrance hall flanked by formal living and dining rooms — both with fireplaces — plus a small library/office, a center-island kitchen and a cavernous lower-level screening room. The rear of the Y-shaped residence horseshoes around a red-brick courtyard with tree-shaded dining terrace and lap swimming pool.

As far as this property gossip knows, Miz Foster traded the Birds for Beverly Hills, where, in late 2012, she quietly paid former HBO exec Colin Callender $11.75 million for a gated mansion high above Coldwater Canyon.
