    Reese Witherspoon is taking on a project!

    The ‘Sweet Home Alabama’ actress just bought a second home in Nashville, paying $1,950,000 for an amazing, stately mansion that’s in a sad state of disrepair.

    Described as a “once in a generation opportunity,’ the home is a stately 1930’s era home on massive 6.5 acre Oak Hill lot that’s in need of some major, major TLC. The home, as it stands now, has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms and 3,855 square feet.

    Reese and Jim have some serious love for Tennessee. After all, they named their young son after the state. With a son named “Tennesee,” it’s no surprise that the showbiz duo are doubling down there. Reese already owns one Nashville mansion, which she picked up for $760,000 in 2005. She grew up in Nashville, and her parents still live nearby. Although she’s been a long time California girl, times, they may be a-changin’.

    Currently, Reese and Jim have their Brentwood, California mansion for-sale as an off-market deal. They’re asking $14 million for their 5-bedroom estate and an adjacent lot. They also used to own a place in Ojai, CA, but that sold at a loss late last year.

    This new Nashville buy isn’t really a shocking purchase for “America’s Sweetheart.” Reese has always had an affinity for revamping homes and making them her own. She completely redid her ranch in Ojai, CA when she first bought it, and all of her other homes have been upgraded and renovated to perfection.

    Her new Nashville mansion has great “bones” and oodles of charm. There’s a masculine wood-paneled library, amazing hardwood floors throughout, and traditional details that give the home a distinguished feel. Each window looks out upon a picturesque brook and sweeping views of the sprawling grounds.

      3 homes totaling over 10,000 square feet on 10+ acres, resort-style pool

      Songstress Sheryl Crow is singing a sad little tune after chopping $4 million off the asking price of her prized compound in Los Angeles.

      After listing for the first time in 2012 and trying to (unsuccessfully) sell her Hollywood Hills home for $15,950,000, Crow’s compound was delisted in December 2013 and just came back on the market with a more down-to-earth ask of $11,950,000.

      Set behind private gates, Crow’s Spanish-style compound sits atop a hill and is comprised of 3 houses that total more than 10,000 square feet on 10+ acres.  She purchased each home individually in and around 1998, and meticulously combined the properties over the next few years.

      The main home is a remodeled and restored ‘Spanish Revival’ with 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, a 2-story entryway, chef’s kitchen, library, wine cellar and music room.

      A second home is a Craftsman built in 1909, and has 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and views of the vistas of Hollywood.

      The third home on the 10 acre property is a cottage that dates back to 1885, complete with a oak-floored kitchen, 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.

      The entire compound is tied together with canyon pathways, trails, a tee pee, campsite, playground, palapas and a resort-style infinity pool.

      A true treasure in the heart of Hollywood.

      Crow’s had a hard time in the real estate game in recent years. This home has sat on the market for months and months, and her equestrian property in College Grove, TN has also had a hard time finding a buyer, even after more than 2 years and nearly $2 million in price reductions.

      The rest of her portfolio includes two off-market properties. One is a $3.6M estate in Nashville, Tennessee and the other is a beachfront escape in Florida.

      The listing agent for her Los Angeles estate is Myra Nourmand of Nourmand & Associates.
