American actress, producer, and director Jodie Foster recently placed her Calabasas home on the market for $2.85 million. The currently-unoccupied home, which is located within a gated community called The Oaks, was purchased by Jodie and her late mother, Evely Foster, in 2005 for $2.25 million. The 57-year-old actress reportedly gained full possession of the property after Evelyn passed away in 2019.
The Spanish Revival-style home has four bedrooms and five bathrooms within its 4,920 square feet of living space. It’s a one-story property, but there’s an additional room that makes for a second floor.
Over at one side of the house is a courtyard entry that is interestingly equipped with a massive outdoor fireplace. The front doors open to a spacious foyer designed with travertine tiles. It eventually leads to a spacious living area that serves as the living room and dining room combined. Up the 25-foot ceilings are exposed wood beams and mission-style chandeliers. The living space is also decked with a carved stone fireplace surrounded by built-in shelves.
The house has an eat-in kitchen with a similar high-ceiling with wood beams. Upgraded stainless steel appliances further improve the cooking experience along with an oversize marble-topped center island.
For the master suite, there are multiple walk-in closets and a relaxing master bathroom that would remind you of a spa complete with a deep soaking tub and a separate steam shower. Aside from the master bedroom, there are also three en suite guest bedrooms.
There is an arched loggia constructed at the backyard with enough room for a dining or lounging area. There is also a swimming pool and a hillside filled with mature trees.
In 2019, Foster also listed another property in the Los Angeles Area. She purchased the Beverly Hills mansion in 2011 and eventually listed it for $15.9 million. It was sold for $14.9 million around two months after it went up on the market.
Aside from gaining money from her real estate game, Jodie has also achieved so much in her acting and directorial career. The multi-awarded actress has won 2 Academy Awards, 2 Golden Globe Awards, 3 British Academy Film Awards, and the distinguished Cecil B. DeMille Award.
She first began her career as a 3-year-old child model before transitioning to acting in her debut project, the 1968 TV sitcom Mayberry R.F.D. She has since starred in numerous movies and TV shows as a teen. In 1980, she decided to become a full-time student at Yale.
However, she realized that acting was her calling and finally came back. Her filmography is now filled with acclaimed films like The Silence of the Lambs, Panic Room, The Accused, Flightplan, and Inside Man.
In the 2010s, she focused more on her career as a director and was able to do The Beaver in 2011 and Money Monster in 2016. She has also directed episodes of Netflix hit series Black Mirror, House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black. She reportedly has an upcoming movie titled Prisoner 760, which is slated for 2021.
