Actress Reese Witherspoon, who had earlier listed her Ojai ranch on the market, has recently purchased her 3rd property in the gated Brentwood community circle. The actress is known to have plenty of demands with respect to privacy, and hence this $3 million home will actually form a part of the massive luxurious estate she intends on making eventually. Spreading over 3,053 sq ft, this mansion is known to have 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, which would more than satisfy a family of 4, but Witherspoon is perhaps now looking for more privacy than before. She had earlier bought one of the neighboring properties for $3.325 million, and then razed the mansion on it to incorporate it as a part of her grand plans for her estate. Before that, during her marriage to actor Ryan Phillippe, she paid $4.72 million for another neighboring 7,000 sq ft property, which will now be a 3rd of the total grand estate.
This last part of the grand property acquired by Reese Witherspoon, has got quite the history of known owners. This place was known to be the residence owned by fashion designer and Maybelline model, Late Elyse Knox, who was also the wife to Tom Harmon, and is the mother of actor, Mark Harmon. Spread over an isolated region, the cottage also gained the title of ‘Enchanted Cottage’, and is known to have handcrafted and painted oak-wood flooring.
It has been put on the market for sale for the 1st time since 1956, and the new buyer certainly is looking to add to the ‘star’ factor in the times to come. After all, she has managed to spend a total of $11.05 million on it already, which nows spreads well over 1.32 acres.
