Jodie Foster’s House

Jodie has listed one of her two Californian residences for $9,975,000. The property, located in one of the more prime locations of Beverly Hills was bought by her in 2005 for $8,100,000. It is spread over 5,484 square feet. However, the listing shows 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms and it’s a bit of a mystery how so many rooms have been squeezed into such little space.

The answer to that could probably lie in the acre of gated grounds that surround the property. It has enough space for a swimming pool, lighted tennis courts, and a spa. Some speculate that there may another 2-bedroom guest house on the grounds which would explain the bizarre number of rooms mentioned. There are several people who are of the opinion that Foster’s residence is something in the nature of a fixer upper or teardown. However, sources close to the listing agency rubbish such claims. This 1949 built home has ivy covered walls and although it may require slight remodeling, it doesn’t require to be torn down. The layout and design of the house is very interesting. The patio is lined with bricks and has an outdoor kitchen near the pool. The family room has pitched ceilings and a fireplace with intricate carvings on it. There is yet another fireplace in the house, this one being in the living room and made from stone. The wood-paneled library has a wet bar and can also double as a media room.
