Maybe the third time will prove lucky for Reese Witherspoon? The Legally Blonde actress originally listed her Ojai Ranch for $10 million in September last year. After a couple months on the market, she lowered it to $8.9 million in November. Clearly, she’s determined to unload the property because it’s been reduced another time to $7.25 million. Given it’s history and serene outdoor surroundings, I’m surprised it’s not selling.
The historic Libbey Ranch was designed in 1923 for Edward Libbey, the father of the glass industry and considered the “founding father” of the town of Ojai. Before Witherspoon bought the Ojai ranch in early 2008, actor-director Harold Ramis (Ghostbusters) and celebrity designer Kathryn M. Ireland are among its previous owners.
For all you Twihards out there, this is the place where Robert Pattinson reportedly escaped to after he found out his girlfriend Kristen Stewart cheated on him. Here’s the property description from the agency listing it. For all you RHOBH fans, it’s The Agency which was founded by Kyle Richards’ husband Mauricio Umansky.
This historic, character-laden property features century-old hardware, fireplaces, arches, turrets, original stonework, plank floors and Spanish tiles. The four bedroom, 3-1/2 bathroom main house has a soaring beamed-ceiling living room (with a massive stone fireplace), a large and bright country kitchen opening to a large dining room, and a library loft with fireplace. There is also a swimming pool, barn, horse stables, three guest cottages, carriage house, organic garden, acres of pasture, and picturesque landscape designed by landscape starchitect, Jay Griffith.
