Reese Witherspoon and Brentwood mansion

Sweet home no more. After only two years of ownership, ambitious actor and producer Reese Witherspoon’s immaculate English country-style estate sold for $21.5 million. Located in lower Mandeville Canyon in the affluent Brentwood area of Los Angeles, California, the sizable 10,343-square-foot mansion features an open floor plan with classic stone tile and Tudor-style detailing throughout.

The actor, along with her talent agent husband, Jim Toth, purchased the property in 2020 for about $15.89 million via a trust, per The Wall Street Journal. Represented by Sotheby’s Graham J. Larson, the estate was listed in early March for $25 million. On the market for only about a month, the buyer, represented by Compass’ Danny Brown, was super interested in the prestigious property, resulting in a $5 million profit for "The Morning Show" star and her family of five.

Built in the 1990s, Witherspoon and Toth renovated much of the home’s custom-designed features, including the marble checkerboard flooring, and the entire kitchen. Additionally, the couple may have had some slightly less stylish amenities to improve within the home before putting it on the market, as they made a noticeable profit on the work put forth, per Architectural Digest. Witherspoon’s real estate portfolio is high-end as well, featuring mega-mansions in Bel Air (with former husband Ryan Phillipe), a ranch-style house in Ojai, and a historic colonial manor in Nashville.

Find serenity at Reese Witherspoon’s European country-like mansion

Reese's Mandeville Canyon backyard

Normally associated with surfable waves, mountainside sunsets, and winding canyon roads, Los Angeles isn’t typically known for peaceful country living. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Mandeville Canyon offers a calm picturesque country setting for many celebrities amid the glitz of Hollywood, which is located minutes away from Santa Monica and the Pacific Palisades. The "Big Little Lies" star found hers tucked in the California trees at 13151 Rivers Road, which features an encompassing stone wall with a gated entrance. A short ride up the winding driveway leads to the site of the large European-style manor that sits on a three-acre lot. The exterior features a white stone-clad façade and an abundance of traditional windows. Parking is ample with a motor court and an attached three-car garage.

Perfect for a posh sorority party, Ms. Elle Wood’s backyard is private and luxurious. The scenic lawn is luscious with a spacious entertaining area, equipped with a 40-foot, blue-tiled saltwater pool and spa, a limestone barbeque, seating for eight at the bar, and space for lawn and patio games, per Realtor.com. There are also plenty of al fresco dining possibilities, including a massive outdoor fireplace to warm up next to after a swim. The back of the house is similar to a French chateau with turret-like structured rooms and endless windows that radiate an enchanting glow to the backyard landscape.

Walk the line into celebrated actor Reese Witherspoon’s captivating Tudor-style mansion. Upon entry, the two-story foyer is deliberately grand with a quarter-turn staircase at the focal point that features custom-designed brass and steel handrails and light oak steps. The Oscar winner displayed the home’s elegant oak staircase prior to her red-carpet appearance at the 2022 SAG Awards on Instagram, which is just as brilliant as the little black dress that she wore. The walls are washed white throughout most of the home while a fascinating black and white diamond checkered marble and limestone tiled floor lies underfoot.

Newly refined, the chef’s kitchen has been completely renovated and features a farmhouse sink, gold handles on the cupboards, a wood-sided island, and marble countertops. The ground floor also houses a cozy breakfast area, butler’s pantry, family room, two classic powder rooms, and two ensuite bedrooms. The elegant formal living room features a four-seat bar, fireplace, and French doors that lead to the patio. While residing in one of the quietest properties in the westside of LA, Witherspoon may have taken care of her numerous business affairs in the all-dark blue wood-paneled office, per Hollywood Life. Since almost every room in the home is white, this is the most colorful one with its vibrant blueberry hue.
