Brooke Shields  Gets $7.4 Million for  Her Charming Rustic-Chic  Los Angeles House

After 25 years of enjoying the sprawling canyon views of her Los Angeles abode, Brooke Shields parted ways with her longtime home.

The Blue Lagoon actress sold the secluded 5-bedroom house for $7,400,000.

Brooke Shields made a nice profit  from the sale, as she paid $3.25 million for the home back in 1997.

At the time, the actress was still married to former tennis player Andre Agassi.

She rented it to fellow celebrities for a whopping $25,000/month. 

While Shields held on to her rustic chic Los Angeles pad for 25 years, she didn’t live here — especially in recent years.

According to People.com, many celebrities have rented the house over the years, including former A-list couple Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, who lived here while their own home (nearby) was being renovated.

Other sources reported that actor Matt Damon, singer/songwriter Randy Newman, and hit filmmaker J.J. Abrams have also lived here over the years.

If you’re wondering what made this Pacific Palisades retreat so popular among celebrities, here’s a rundown of its most notable features:

The celebrity pad is set in a secluded, lush canyon in the Upper Riviera neighborhood of Pacific Palisades,  Los Angeles

It has a chic rustic vibe that makes  it cozy and inviting, evoking sophisticated country living despite being just minutes away from the city

Clocking in at 5,345 square feet of  living space, the Pacific Palisades  home has a total of 5 bedrooms and  5.5 baths

It has a modern chef's kitchen appointed with professional  appliances, a kitchen island and  a breakfast nook

Outdoor amenities include a pool/spa, multiple decks and patios, and a dining & BBQ area that's perfect for entertaining guests.

But despite the house's uncontested charm, the actress’ decision to part ways with her Los Angeles home doesn’t come as much of a surprise.

Brooke Shields has long been living on the East Coast with husband Chris Henchy, an American screenwriter and producer best known for his long-lasting collaboration with Will Ferrell.

But the actress has admitted that she will miss her cozy, rustic retreat. She took to Instagram to say goodbye to  her longtime home:

“We’ve been packing up  my LA home and I’ve been  taking the time to say goodbye to the nooks and details I’ll miss the most…including this swing spot where we hung this mosaic by @jogartin from our wedding,”

Brooke Shields

“The art is coming with  me, but the swing will  have to stay  #love”
