The home was purchased by the actor in October 2007 for $1,715,000. After holding onto the home for nearly 7 years, Reynolds listed the place for sale, so he could close that chapter of his life and be fully invested in his new life in Bedford, NY with new wife Blake Lively.
Not unlike a messy breakup, it took a considerable amount of time for Ryan to be fully untangled from this Los Angeles home. He placed it on the open market in the fall of 2009 with an asking price of $1,900,000. The home wasn’t in as high demand as Ryan Reynolds himself, so he took it off the market six months later.
It came back onto the market in July 2011 with an asking price of $1,690,000. With no movement, Reynolds was forced to chop another $91,000 off, to bring the asking price to $1,599,000. No buyer stepped up, so Reynolds took the home off the market until July 2013, when it popped back onto the market with the same $1,599,000 asking price he was hoping to get in 2011. 2.5 years and another $100,000 price chop later, market conditions worked in Reynold’s favor and he was able to find a buyer willing to pay $1,405,000, and the deal closed on January 4, 2014.
The home’s listing describes it as a “sophisticated Hollywood Hills private home…at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac.” The home boasts a private entrance though walled and gated courtyard. Amenities include a newer roof, hardwood floors, solar heating, tank-less water heater and French doors throughout. The 1,789 square feet includes 2 bedrooms, 2.5 remodeled bathrooms, and a cook’s kitchen. The home is ideal for indoor/outdoor living with a gorgeous patio for entertaining and a landscaped yard with walkways overlooking canyon views.
