If there’s one thing celebrities want in a home, it’s privacy — and that’s exactly what Eva Longoria got with this charming French country home in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood of Los Angeles.
Nestled at the end of a quiet street and hidden behind gates, the compound sits on nearly 3 acres of land and comprises two separate residences, two standalone studios and a quaint stone cottage.
But the former "Desperate Housewives" star, who had her first child with husband José Bastón in 2018, seems eager to say au revoir to the property. The estate was on the market last summer for $11 million, and now the price has been reduced to $9.8 million.
The main villa includes three bedrooms and three baths, all featuring wide-plank oak floors. The living room’s centerpiece is a gorgeous stone fireplace, but the real focal point is the corner exposure view of the city below, which is simply stunning.
In the farmhouse kitchen, oak cabinets and tile floors offer a neutral color scheme. The room also has stainless steel appliances, white countertops and a large lantern light fixture.
The villa features oversized French doors that lead out to the trellis-shaded dining terrace, where you can have dinner alfresco when weather permits.
It also looks out onto the property’s resort-like pool and spa, but for a really good view, step out onto the storybook footbridge that spans the width of the water below.
The second home at the compound has a country-chic vibe, featuring dark hardwood floors and a gray-toned kitchen that comes with glass display cabinets.
A small stone cottage feels right out of a fairy tale from the outside and inside; it’s a happily ever after for wine lovers. It features a large wine refrigerator and can be set up as a tasting room. Of course, it can also be used for other purposes if vino isn’t your thing.
