The Bel-Air mansion once belonging to Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe just went on the market—but buying it will set you back $15.99 million.
The residence is inspired by English medieval churches, and was designed by famed architect Gerard R. Colcord. Colcord— who was known as “Hollywood’s society artist”—created over 300 impressive estates in the mid-20th century, and this stunning home is definitely up there with his most memorable works.
Spanning almost 9,000 square feet (including guest house) of living space, the four-bedroom, five-bathroom home was built in 1969. The house has an old-school charm accented by the wooden, beam-laden pitched ceilings.
Smaller touches, like antique chandeliers and built-in brick fireplaces, tie the decor together. Oak plank floors and other wood detailing run throughout the home.
Downstairs, a media room and white, bright kitchen take center stage. There’s also a full master wing that includes a sitting room, wet bar, and gorgeous marble bathroom.
The home’s exterior is equally beautiful, with oak and sycamore trees lining the grounds. Canyon and hillside views of the surrounding area are visible on all sides, and a large swimming pool surrounded by grass and shrubs is perfect for enjoying the warmer weather.
The listing is held by Partners Trust. Interested in this secluded luxury property? Run, don’t walk: Something tells us the storied home won’t be on the market for long.
