Reese Witherspoon appears ready to move on from her beloved seven-acre ranch in Ojai, California.

The 36-year-old actress recently listed the property, the same place she wed a year earlier to entertainment agent Tim Roth, for a tidy $10M.

In a 2009 interview, she said she purchased the ranch just outside Los Angeles because it reminded her of her childhood in Tennessee. “We have chickens and we grow cucumbers and tomatoes. I love it.”

“I’m building a barn,” she added. “I think it’s cool. I really do have animal friends, I have donkeys, I have goats, I have pigs.”

Reese’s home was most recently featured on the September cover of Elle Décor.

The LA Times has the details on the listing saying:

Designed by celebrity architect Wallace Neff, the ranch was originally built in 1923 as stables for glassware titan Edward Libbey. Details include original hardware, turrets, original stonework, plank floors and Spanish tiles. The two-story main house features beam ceilings, a massive stone fireplace in the living room, a library loft with a fireplace, four bedrooms and 31/2 bathrooms. Three guest cottages, a carriage house, a swimming pool, a barn, stables and pasture complete the 7 acres of grounds.

Given Reese’s love of country living, I wouldn’t be surprised if she purchases something similar – but with a bit more space between neighbors. In 2011, Witherspoon received complaints from locals after her two donkeys apparently did a bit too much heeing and hawing.

An irate neighbor told Us Weekly, “It’s so bad that a few residents have sent her a letter.”
