Reese Witherspoon lands $21.5 million for an English country-style house in Los Angeles

Actress and producer Reese Witherspoon has sold a Los Angeles home for $21.5 million, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The sale represents a significant increase in the value of the gated Brentwood estate: A trust linked to Ms Witherspoon paid $15.895million for the property in 2020, records show.

The house, a traditional English country-style estate in the lower Mandeville Canyon area, came on the market for $25 million in early March and found a buyer in less than a month, according to listing site Zillow..

Ms Witherspoon renovated the circa 1990s house after buying it. She could not immediately be reached for comment.

A formal two-story lobby has black-and-white marble and limestone flooring. The home also features a white oak staircase and a family room with a four-seater bar, according to the listing.
