Hollywood superstar Jennifer Lawrence has a swanky new address in Beverly Hills. The actor who stars in The Hunger Games films and American Hustle purchased a 5,500-square-foot abode nestled in the twisty streets of the Hollywood Hills. In fact, this Hamptons-style home has been owned by other Hollywood household names in the past, including Jessica Simpson, and before that, Ellen Degeneres among other stars.
When Lawrence recently purchased this home in fall 2014, the Internet was abuzz with suggestions that her then-boyfriend, the musician and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin (the couple has since reportedly broken up) was influential in her choice of a cozy, romantic house. The interior, reportedly designed by Rachel Ashwell, the designer famous for creating shabby-chic, is rumoured to have an ample kitchen and a beachy low-key vibe intended for the new couple to cocoon with home-cooked dinners and good wine. But we’d like to think Lawrence, who is revered for her down-to-earth attitude, simply chose it because the house, while sprawling, still has a comfortable and lived-in vibe – by ostentatious Los Angeles standards anyway.
This five-bedroom house cost Lawrence over $8 million, and for that hefty chunk of change, she is now the mistress of a swimming pool, a koi pond, extensively lush landscaped gardens, the requisite media/screening room, and a gourmet kitchen suitable for big family get-togethers and entertaining a crowd among other luxe features. It’s a romantic home, a sentiment echoed even by the real estate listing agent, Sotheby’s. “Ebonised hardwood floors and fabulous crown and base mouldings throughout are just some of the quality details in this romantically emotional home,” was the reported wording of the agency’s listing. Here’s a look at this fabulous house.
