The Oscar winner first purchased the home for $3.3 million back in 2014, and has kept the seven-bedroom, eight-full and two-half bathroom home largely as-is. This is no knock on the conditions of the home, but rather, a testament to the durability of its design and structure.
Reese Witherspoon is reassessing her real estate portfolio, and as a result, she’s recently put the largest of her four Nashville homes on the market for $4.4 million.
From the outside, the red-brick house, which sits on nearly 1.75 acres, is quintessentially Southern, with a column-supported porch. Once inside, the home opens onto a double-height foyer with a curved staircase disappearing to bedrooms upstairs.
On the ground floor, the formal living and dining rooms are spacious and flank the staircase to create a truly grand entrance; the eat-in kitchen features a double-wide center island comprised of a granite countertop and space enough for some counter seating, adjacent to a family room with a stacked-stone fireplace.
Upstairs, the master suite dominates the space, with its own fireplace, an enviable walk-in closet, a separate dressing room with a lighted, full-length mirror, and, of course, a lavish bathroom with a deep soaking tub and a separate steam shower. The master suite even features a private terrace. Elsewhere in the home is a fully-stocked gym.
The back of the house opens out onto a dining and lounging veranda complete with a top-of-the-line outdoor kitchen and a semicircular spa next to an outdoor fireplace. A self-contained guesthouse sits on the other side of a swimming pool, and hosts two additional bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as an open-plan living and dining room and a high-end kitchen. Beyond the guesthouse is a grassy yard with a garden perfect for growing herbs and vegetables in good weather.
In addition to their 11,000-square-foot home, now up for sale, Reese Witherspoon and her husband, talent agent Jim Toth, also own three other properties in the area, including a 1930s white-brick residence they also bought in 2014 for nearly $2 million. The home, located in the upscale Oak Hill area, was a fixer-upper at the time of purchase, though it has charming features, such as a paneled library and refinished hardwood floors.
