Hollywood star Reese Witherspoon
has listed her Californian estate for $10 million (£6.2 million).  The property in Ojai – an hour from Los
Angeles – has long been a retreat for the Oscar winning star and her
family.  And, it was also reportedly
home to actor Robert Pattinson after his recent split from girlfriend and Twilight co-star Kristen Stewart.

Property provides and escape from the paparazzi and glitz of Hollywood

The $10 million Ojai home is an
hour from Los Angeles — and the paparazzi that comes with it.  Listing agent Billy Rose, co-founder of
brokerage The Agency, says that the area that feels ‘like you’re in the country
and you’re away from it all’.

“Assuming the reports are
correct and Pattinson was there, it’s a place that people don’t care. There’s
not the same sort of celebrity attraction that we have (in L.A.) with the vans
and buses with people who want to go look at houses that people lived in 40
years ago,” explained Rose. “I think that you can be much more of a
normal person up there.”

Getting away from the razzmatazz
of Hollywood is likely to be what attracted the Legally Blonde and Water for
star when she purchased the home.

The estate at 915 Del Norte Rd,
Ojai, California, 93023 was originally built as a stable for Edward Libbey, the
glassware magnate, who is also considered the founding father of Ojai.  NBC reports that Libbey commissioned celebrity
architect Wallace Neff, who put his own touch on the property.

Previous owners of the luxury
include Ghostbusters actor
and director Harold Ramis and designer/supermodel Kathy Ireland. Ireland
completed a full remodel of the property, but as Rose explained, kept the
authenticity of the home.
