For almost two years, an actor Ryan Phillippe is trying to get rid of his Californian home, that he bought in 2008 for $7.175 million after his divorce with Reese Witherspoon. In late 2010, Phillippe put the property on the Hollywood Hills real estate market for $7.45 million, but the timing for selling was bad, so the listing was removed in 2011. This year, once again, he will try to sell his home in the Sunset Strip area for $6.995 million, with Billy Rose of The Agency.
Luxury home, coined Rising Zen due to its combination of Asian and modern architecture spreads over 7,600 square feet of living space including five bedrooms, seven bathrooms, a master suite that takes up an entire level with direct access to two-story gym, a media room, art studio, home theater, koi pond, a step-down bar with an aquarium backdrop, cook’s kitchen with breakfast area and floor-to-ceiling windows that offer fantastic city views.
The more than half-acre of grounds includes an “eco-friendly” pool with underwater speakers, a spa, a sauna and an alfresco entertaining area with a full outdoor kitchen.
The most notable is certainly “stoparazzi,” a term coined by listing agent Rose to describe properties hidden behind gates and tall hedges with extensive security systems that effectively stop the paparazzi from harassing celebrities in their private homes.
