Per the Los Angeles Times, the actress bought the posh compound—also known as “Vila das Flores”— in 1999 after filming wrapped for her breakout role in “She’s All That.”
Originally built in the 1930’s, the Paul Williams-designed estate is filled with classical touches including hardwood floors, white wainscoting, and a pair of brick fireplaces.
The chic chef’s kitchen is outfitted in polished granite countertops, glass-paneled cabinetry, and a breakfast nook with views of the backyard gardens.
The spacious dining room boasts oversized picture windows and French doors that lead to an al fresco lounge.
The master suite comes complete with a colossal walk-in closet and a bathroom with a claw-foot soaking tub, as well arched dormer doors that open to private balcony.
The lush backyard features several fountains, fire pits, and entertaining patios—not to mention a blue tiled circular spa.
There’s even an adorable guesthouse—separated by a flagstone courtyard—offering another bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. With a combined total of four bedrooms, four baths, and over 3,000 feet of living space, we’re not surprised it took Cook nearly two decades to let go of the charming place.
