Reese Witherspoon Puts $10.5 Million Pricetag on Brentwood Estate

It’s no secret Oscar-winner Reese Witherspoon has been on a long and drawn-out house hunt on the Westside of Los Angeles. Last year — so the scuttlebutt went — she and her talent-agent hubby, Jim Toth, were thisclose to buying a $20-ish million multi-acre estate on a little-known lane in an especially bucolic corner of fancy-pants Pacific Palisades. And in mid-2010, she actually bought a Mandeville Canyon fixer-upper from the ever-wacky actor-lawman Steven Seagal. The existing residence was razed, but Miz Witherspoon soon caught a classic case of the Celebrity Real Estate Fickle and sold the newly vacant 2.5+ acre spread in late 2012 to filmmakers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy.

We heard recently Miz Witherspoon is still peeping at private and pricey properties in the Palisades, and perhaps she’s found something to her liking, because she’s quietly made her longtime home in Brentwood available, with an asking price of $10.5 million.

An adjacent parcel, also owned by Witherspoon, can be had for another $3.5 million, and would bring the total size of the property to 1.3 acres. Privately set at the tail end of a quiet cul-de-sac in a discreet, guard-gated enclave, the three parcels that comprise the property were picked up between December 2003 and December 2013 for a combined total of just over $11 million, per property records.

Listing details show the walled, gated and vine-encrusted two-story, California Spanish-style casa has a guest-impressing double-height foyer with curvaceous stairway, formal living and dining rooms, and a cozy library. French doors in the eat-in kitchen and adjoining family room open to terraced lawns, spacious patios, an outdoor fireplace and a swimming pool and spa. The house’s five en-suite bedrooms include a star-worthy master suite complete with vaulted ceiling, fireplace, marble bathroom, two fitted walk-in closets and an attached room for a gym, office, yoga studio or whatever.

    Movie Stars are limited by the scripts that come around. She is type cast, nowadays. She needs to play something we don’t know is her and win us over all OVER again.
    Like when Eddie Murphy FIRST played all the people at the table in those fat suits? His mistake was letting everyone KNOW it was him. That was so unknown and unique he could have gone for an Oscar with the right script. Be hilarious if he had won best supporting in 3 ways AND best actor, *oh well*
    Not sure what I would offer for Reese’s role. The formula for her is STALE. Need a secret mold-breaker.
    Maybe I can set her as a futuristic Predator fighting robot/cyborg that saves the planet.

    Perhaps it is because of the DUI episode, but I just get a sense that all is not well in Reeseville with hubby. Her career may have hit the wall but he is mega rich, no? Hence why have to sell to buy.
