You know it’s the home of a private celebrity when the estate is gated and covered in vines. The home of Oscar-winning actress, Jodie Foster, recently hit the market for $9,975,000. The prime piece of Beverly Hills real estate is located two blocks behind the famed Beverly Hills Hotel in the prestigious location just north of Sunset Blvd—a neighborhood that celebrities have preferred for their homes for years due to the posh city and private amenities.
Foster stepped into fame as a child actress and received her first Oscar-nomination for “Taxi Driver” at the age of 12, going on to receive two Academy Awards, one for her role in “The Accused” and the other in “Silence of the Lambs.”
Jodie Foster’s home is a 1949 Cape Cod-style house that boasts over 5,400-square feet and sits on nearly an acre. The home includes seven bedrooms, eight bathrooms, a championship tennis court, swimmer’s pool, and two-bedroom guest house. The flat lot has mature, lush landscaping and open patios throughout.
What isn’t mentioned in the listing is the interior of the home. The Real Estalker reports that the actress also had an interest in remodeling the home. Foster purchased the home in 2008 for $8,100,081, and it appears that whatever remodel she had planned wasn’t finished. According to the listing, buyers can “restore the existing home or build your dream estate… Bring your designer and architect.”
Despite what may be a rough exterior, the location of this home is what matters, pushing its listing price above the expensive median Beverly Hills home value of $1,880,200.
The listing is held by agent Jeffrey Hyland.
