Reese Witherspoon Buys Flipped 'Starchitect' House in LA
When Witherspoon bought the big Nashville mansion in August, it looked like the film star was packing up the family and decamping to Tennessee, shedding her glamorous life in Southern California. It seemed like a real possibility, especially since she and husband, Jim Toth, had their Brentwood mega-mansion quietly on the market for $14 million. With this brand new West Coast purchase, it seems that they aren't leaving the Golden State, they're just changing things up and moving to a new pad!
For their new West Coast deal, property records show that Witherspoon and her agent hubby paid $12.705 million for a five-bedroom, five-bathroom, 4,344-square-foot home. The home was never publicly for-sale and the deal was an off-market transaction that closed on Aug. 28. Sneaky, sneaky.
The home was last sold in December 2012 for $4.9 million to award-winning "starchitect" Ken Ungar, who worked his magic on the property and created an estate worthy of an A-lister. Based on the sold price and the "before" pictures you can see above, Unger took a outdated estate and turned it into something worthy of a $12.7 million price tag, netting a nice profit when the deal closed.
