Bye, Bye Bird Streets!
Jodie Foster just sold her Hollywood Hills mansion in the famed Bird Streets after struggling to find a buyer. She listed the spread for $6.4 million in June 2013 and it languished on the market for more than a year. It took a couple price chops to get the deal done. Property records show the deal closed on October 6, 2014 for $4,995,000.
Foster purchased the home in 1995 from model Cheryl Tiegs. With a distinguished address and oodles of famous neighbors, Foster’s Spanish Villa was the ultimate celebrity hideaway for the notoriously private actress.
The home has 4 bedrooms, 4 full and 2 half bathrooms, an office and an attached guest suite. Adjacent to a formal dining room, a butler’s pantry leads to a stunning kitchen. A luxurious master suite features a sitting area, walk-in closets, fireplace and sauna.
Outside, the central courtyard pool and brick patio are shielded by a high-reaching hedge for the utmost seclusion – a must for the notoriously private Foster, who had never openly discussed her private life in the public until she outed herself in an emotional speech while accepting a lifetime achievement award at the Golden Globes.
In other real estate moves, Jodie sold her Beverly Hills mansion for $8.3 million in January 2012 and purchased a 5 bedroom, 6 bathroom, 3,752 square foot home in Beverly Hills for $11,750,000 on June 25, 2012.
