Move over, Ellen DeGeneres, because there's a new celebrity house flipper in business. Reese Witherspoon dropped nearly $2 million on the ultimate fixer-upper, a historic mansion in her hometown of Nashville. While this Southern estate sat neglected long enough to fall into ruin, Reese hopes to completely renovate the home, which has seen so much American history. Thanks to the concern of a local couple, the very basic renovations (floor restoration and wall painting) were taken care of prior to the real estate sale, so the actress won't have to fully gut the home.
Built in the 1930s, the 3,855-square-foot home sits upon 6.5 acres of private land that will eventually be excellent for Reese's growing family. The house itself has great bones for renovation, offering a grand entryway and a large library, along with a separate guest house that stands beside an in-ground pool. Hopefully, with plenty of money and hard work, this historic estate will make a beautifully restored home base for the Nashville native and her family. Curious about the project that Reese is taking on? Check out the photos and imagine all the possibilities of her flip.
