Academy Award-winning actress Jodie Foster has listed her 7,500-square-foot Coldwater Canyon home in Beverly Hills home for $15.9 million. According to the Observer, Foster spent $11.75 million for the secluded walled and gated property in June 2012, and she and her wife Alexandra Hedison have made it their primary residence, according to Yolanda’s Little Black Book, which first spotted the listing.
The five-bedroom, 5.5-bath house, which is situated on a 0.65-acre parcel, originally was built in 1952 and has since been expanded and remodeled. A private walkway leads to a two-story formal entry, which has a dangling light fixture and a staircase with a dark wood railing. The formal living room, which contains a grand fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows, is found between a media room and a formal dining room. The listing is held by David Kramer of Hilton & Hyland.
Leonardo DiCaprio has listed a Spanish-style residence he owns in the hills above the Silver Lake Reservoir for $1.749 million. According to Variety, the four-bedroom home was built in the early 1930s and offers 3,560 square feet of living space on three levels. The house is nestled behind a high-walled and securely gated courtyard featuring a lily pad-topped koi pond and Spanish tile accents and opens via imported carved wood doors to a foyer that steps down to a spacious, wood-floored living room with a tile-surrounded fireplace, several sets of French doors and a soaring wood-beamed ceiling.
The formal dining room has elegant parquet wood flooring, while the kitchen is highlighted by white ceramic tiles bordered in dark blue and starburst-patterned tiles. Also included is a library/study; master suite boasting a sitting room with fireplace; and a semi-subterranean level that incorporates workshop and hobby areas, plus a bunker-like garage that accommodates three or more cars. Outdoors is a pool, as well as a loggia featuring a drop-down movie screen and projection TV system. Brett Lawyer of Hilton & Hyland serves as the listing agent.
