When I saw that Reese Witherspoon listed her country retreat in Ojai, California, this week, I was stunned. I couldn’t believe she’d let this place go.
The house was featured in Elle Decor earlier this year, which may have been a sign that she was about to sell. It seems to be the thing celebrities tend to do to get interest in their properties before they go on the market, doesn’t it?
Take a look!
Libbey Ranch in Ojai
The designer Reese hired was Kristen Buckingham.
Buckingham shared this behind-the-scenes “outtake” from the Elle Decor shoot with me:
Love seeing it in the staging process (you can see more they didn’t use on Kristen’s FB page).
Here’s how it looks in the listing today (below):
According to Zillow:
“The house was originally built as a stable for Edward Libbey, the glassware magnate, who is also considered the modern founding father of Ojai. Libbey commissioned celebrity architect Wallace Neff, who put his own touch on the property.”
The ranch has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths in the main house.
Libbey Ranch was the site of Reese’s wedding to Jim Toth last year:
The property sits on 7 private acres that include an organic garden and a pool. It also comes with a barn, horse stables, and a carriage house.
