Reese Witherspoon has a new $6.9 million country house in Ojai, California.
According to the listing, it’s a Wallace Neff architectural masterpiece known as Libbey Ranch that includes an equestrian compound:
“The perfect 6+ acre hideaway is nestled in fabulous Ojai Valley, a short drive to one of LA’s most sought after vacation spots. Fabulous new master suite. Incredible privacy.”
Update: It was later reported that Reese got the place for about $5.8 million, knocking a chunk off the asking price.

The home appeared in House Beautiful when it was owned by interior designer Kathryn M. Ireland.
In the article, Ireland explained:
Originally, this house was designed by Wallace Neff in the ’20s to be a barn. Then another architect, Austen Pierpoint, made changes in the ’40s so it could be a home. This is classic Spanish architecture, but with a sense of bohemian fun, comfortable and loose.I love the way this house moves from the kitchen into the living room. And then these massive iron door handles everywhere. I love to lift them. It’s downright medieval.
