The only thing between Brooke Shields and her Pacific Palisades home? A new owner. The former Calvin Klein jeans model and actress has put her woodsy retreat on the market for $8,195,000, Dirt reported.
Shields purchased the rustic abode in 1989 for $2.47 million. So the star of “The Blue Lagoon” and “Endless Love” stands to clear some serious capital gains, should a deal pan out.
Shields has long since relocated to New York City, splitting time between a West Village townhouse and Hamptons getaway. But she continued to hold on to her SoCal home and has offered it as a luxury rental over the last few years for as much as $35,000 a month.
As we reported in 2018, Shields was said to have rented her place out to Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner during their marriage, while their massive compound was under construction.
Since the property offers a secure and secluded spot in a coveted community, we can see the celebrity appeal.
The 5,345-square-foot, chalet-style residence offers five bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms. Located in a secluded canyon in the prime neighborhood known as the Upper Riviera, the sweet retreat offers canyon and mountain views.
You enter the property from a private, gated driveway and a motor court leads to a charming front porch. The two-story foyer leads to a spacious living room with a fireplace and walls of windows, and doors that open to a wraparound patio on the main level.
In addition, the spread includes a dining room and an up-to-date chef’s kitchen with professional-grade appliances, large island with bar seating, and a breakfast room with a fireplace.
Upstairs, the master suite includes an office, sitting room, fireplace, and a balcony overlooking views all the way to the Getty Museum. The en suite bathroom includes a walk-in closet, spalike bath, fireplace, and sauna.
On the lower level, you’ll find four more bedrooms, a media lounge with bar and kitchenette, laundry, plus storage space.
A new owner can entertain outside on the lushly landscaped half-acre, with multiple decks, a dining area with a barbecue, as well as a pool and spa.
The longtime model and actress has been in show business since she was a baby. She starred in a Louis Malle film, “Pretty Baby,” at the age of 12, and as a teenager, landed a Vogue cover and became the face of Calvin Klein jeans for an iconic ad campaign.
As an adult, the Princeton University graduate has also held roles on the TV show “Suddenly Susan” and more recently on “ Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”
