Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry (shown here with Gabriel Aubry, her French-Canadian boyfriend and the father of her daughter Nahla) bought this Mediterranean-style home in Beverly Hills for $2.275 million back in 2001. It’s small by Hollywood standards–only 2 bedrooms and 2 baths–but I can definitely see why it appealed to her. The home sits on a lovely and secluded 1.3 acres and looks like a sweet little hideaway to me.
The house is currently on the market for $5 million. Rumor has it that Halle Berry’s mother has been living here recently.
According to the listing:
One-of-a-kind rustic & private Old-World Mediterranean graced by magnificent gardens, fountains, al fresco dining & seating areas, fire pit and sumptuous stone spa in a verdant canyon setting. The vibe is majestic, yet casual with vaulted heavy wood-beamed ceilings, wide-planked wood floors, detailed custom-made ironwork, stone-carved fireplaces, a dramatic staircase, banks of French doors/windows & a master suite tub carved out of stone. Cook’s kitchen.
The kitchen may be a little too narrow for people who cook a lot:
The master bedroom:
It looks like this balcony is off the master bedroom:
How many throws can you spot? I think at least 3 of them may be the same one moved strategically around the house for the photos. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that. We all appreciate an agent who makes an effort!)
If you buy this house, then actress Amy Adams might be your neighbor. She reportedly purchased a renovated ranch down the street.
