Reese Witherspoon has just flipped her historic Nashville home to veteran music producer and founder of 11 One/Music, Randy Wachtler.
The producer paid $7.4 million for the home, located in the prestigious Belle Meade neighborhood of Nashville – nearly double what the actress and her husband, Jim Toth paid in 2018. Since purchasing the home that summer, the actress renovated the Colonial-style mansion into one of the world's best homes, complete with a grand staircase and a chandelier-topped bathroom.
The estate spans 8,400 square feet, reports Dirt (opens in new tab), which shares that the 1930s home boasts a host of ornate architectural assets, including columns and a trio of dormer windows that fill the interiors with natural light. The home's exteriors are equally as noteworthy, thanks to its veranda-topped brick porch, which is the perfect sunny breakfast spot.
Actress Reese Witherspoon is best known for her roles in Legally Blonde, Wild, and Walk The Line. However, beyond her place on the silver screen, the Louisiana-born star has made a name as an author and a home flipper. Her most recent sale was this estate in the celebrity hot spot of Belle Meade.
Buyer Randy Wachtler will join a list of famous residents in the southwestern Nashville neighborhood. These include the former U.S. Vice President and 2000 presidential candidate Al Gore, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Jon Meacham and singer Amy Grant.
It is easy to understand the attraction of Belle Meade; the affluent area is known for its Greek-inspired winery and Radnor Lake State Park that sits nearby.
Inside the property, Dirt reports that Reese Witherspoon 'extensively renovated' the interiors – curating the hardwood and tile floors and experimenting with fresh paint ideas that accentuate the home's natural light.
The actress also decorated the bright entryway that boasts a large staircase and vibrant artwork that grace the walls.
Reese Witherspoon also played with traditional decorating ideas in the large living room and marble-topped gourmet kitchen that bring a hint of glamor to the historic home. Beyond the main living areas, the home also boasts a screened-in sunroom with a floor-to-ceiling brick fireplace – a feature that pays homage to the home's rich heritage.
The 'resort-like grounds' also include a swimming pool and a sundeck that is sure to capture the Southern sun.
After successfully flipping houses in Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Los Angeles, and now Nashville, we can wonder, where is next on Reese Witherspoon's flip list?
