'Best Actress' Academy Award winner for 'Walk the Line;' and starred in all Legally Blonde films and other romantic comedies
5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, 1.3 acres, pool
‘America’s Sweetheart’ is looking to make a sweet real estate deal!
Per property records and The Real Estalker, the three parcels that comprise the large estate were bought in December 2003 and December 2013 for just over $11 million, combined.
A captivating and rare find, Witherspoon’s California Spanish-style estate is tucked away at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac on a double lot in the desirable, guard gated and celebrity-friendly Brentwood Circle.
Unparalleled privacy, sprawling grounds, gorgeous gardens, richly detailed spaces, a perfect floor plan make for the ideal indoor/outdoor lifestyle for any A-lister.
Interior amenities include a double-height entry with sweeping staircase, formal dining room with rich wood ceiling, and cozy library/den.
A fabulous eat-in kitchen and adjacent family room open through French doors to expansive lawn, pool/spa, outdoor fireplace, sunken trampoline, children’s playground, vegetable garden and towering Eucalyptus trees.
In total, Reese and Jim’s home has 5 bedrooms, each with private bath, including a sensational master suite with vaulted ceiling, fireplace, marble bath, two large closets, and a separate gym or office.
Reese and her agent, David Offer, have structured the deal in two ways. The main residence is asking $10.5 million, but also available to be purchased separately is an adjacent 28,870 square foot (per assessor) parcel, which would bring the total lot size to over 1.3 acres and the total cost to $14 million.
Reese is hoping this deal goes better than the sale of her former ranch in Ojai. Reese originally had the place listed for $10 million, and price chopped it multiple times, until it finally sold for almost a million less than the $5.8 million she paid for it.

Pebble Beach, CA
Original member of the iconic American band, The Beach Boys
7 bedrooms, 7 bathrooms, 4 stories on one acre
Want to live like a real ‘California Girl’ (or boy)?
Now’s your chance!
Mike Love, an original member of the iconic music group ‘The Beach Boys,’ has just relisted his spectacular Tuscan-style estate in Pebble Beach, CA for $5,790,000.
While the home is stunning, with hard-to-part-with ocean views, Love has had a hard time finding a buyer. According to the Wall Street Journal, Love originally listed the ‘Surfer’ spread in 2009 for $7.9M. It came off the market and then remerged in June 2012, when it was seeking a buyer at a lower list price of $5.995M.
Built in 2003, the 7-bedroom, 7-bathroom home sits on a coveted acre of land in scenic Pebble Beach, the seaside community famous for its incredible golf course and to-die-for coastline. Expansive and sprawling over four levels, the home has an elevator, wine cellar and tasting room, a game room, a gym and a screening room. Additionally, the home has a guest apartment with a separate kitchen.
In 2012, the Wall Street Journal reported that the Loves are selling the home because their children are no longer in school in Pebble Beach. “It is a lifestyle change,” Jacqueline Love, Mike’s wife, said at the time. The couple has an obvious affinity for vacation towns, as their primary residence is in Incline Village, near world famous Lake Tahoe.
Steve & Noel Beutel of Sotheby’s International Realty-Rancho continue to hold the listing.

Sisters, stars of 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians'
5 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms, 8,900 square feet, pool, waterfront
Fresh off the Kimye wedding, the Kardashians are ‘taking’ the Hamptons for the latest installment of their reality TV series – and they’re doing it in style.
This summer, Kim, Khloe and Kourtney (and their oodles of assistants, glam squads, nannies, etc) will descend upon the Hamptons to shoot their E! series, “Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons,” where they’ll chronicle the launch of their popular Dash retail store in the chic New York vacation hotspot, all while living in a rented mansion, which is actually for-sale for $13,950,000.
Their summer digs are sure to please even the pickiest Kardashian (we’re looking at you, Kim). The waterfront home sits on 3 acres, with a heated pool and a private dock. The 8,900 square foot estate is surrounded by water on 3 sides, and features 5 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms.
There’s an oversized den, an open living room (perfect for lounging), a professional grade kitchen, and waterfront views from every window and glass door.
Along with breathtaking views and top-of-the-line amenities, this home is made even more appealing by its close proximity to beaches and Southampton Village, where the Dash store will be open for business all summer.
There were rumbles a few weeks back that the Kardashians were all “persona non grata” in the exclusive Hamptons community, and that many for-rent homes were closing their doors to the sisters. A source told the New York Post that “many Hamptons brokers refused to work with Kardashian producers, for fear of further upsetting locals who are worried about traffic and crowds, while other owners refused to rent their homes in more esteemed locations.”
Sorry Hampton-ites. Looks like the Kardashians are coming at you – and doing it in style.
The for-sale listing on their rental is being held by Danielle Lise Desrochers of Elliman.
Studio City, CA
Actor who plays 'Peeta Mellark' in the Hunger Games films
3 bed, 2 bath, 1,506 square feet
‘Hunger Games’ hunk Josh Hutcherson has just snapped a new spread, paying $1.25 million for a gorgeous East Coast traditional in the Silver Trangle area of Studio City.
The 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom property was extensively remodeled in 2011. Now, the swank home features dark wood floors, a vaulted beam ceiling, and a formal dining room with fireplace, overlooking a charming brick patio. Oh, la la.
The cook’s kitchen has an uber-popular farmhouse-style sink, Carrara marble countertops, stainless steel appliances and a center island.
Small but mighty at just 1,506 square feet, the home has a master suite with two large closers and a master bedroom with additional Cararra marble counter tops, dual sinks and a stunning claw-foot tub.
Outside, the landscaped and terraced yard includes a sparkling blue swimming pool and views of the hillside.
This is an interesting purchase for the Hutcherson, since its not your typical celeb buy – it’s not gated and it sits directly on the street, offering little-to-no privacy to the Hunger Games star. It’s also a majorly different purchase from the super-private “tree house” home he bought in May 2012 for $2.5 million. That home is gated, tucked away in the hills and steeped in serious celeb history. Former owners included serial home buyer Ellen Degeneres and Michelle Williams and the late Heath Ledger. This new buy is likely to be an investment or for a family member.
