Reese Witherspoon Buys Steven Seagal Home: Weird?

reese witherspoon home brentwoodImagine you're Reese Witherspoon and you have your $7 million house budget all set for a buy. Could you imagine, of all the celebrity homes she could own, that she'd tell her real estate agent, "Take me to the Seagal estate. That's the home I want."

It might not have gone down exactly like this, but Reese Witherspoon did, indeed, just buy the home of Steven Seagal.

Nothing against Steven, but if I were shopping for the Brentwood home sweet home of my dreams, I don't think the home of a martial arts film star would be on my radar. That Seagal, though, he had a totally awesome swimming pool, and in case Reese and the kids ever need it, an on-site Buddhist temple, too!

Photos after the jump.


Yep, Mr. Seagal is a Buddhist, who knew? But I guess when you're a reincarnated 17th-century Buddhist spiritual master, then you kinda have to be Buddhist, right? Again, who knew?

But anyway, back to the house ... Reese Witherspoon paid $7 million for the Seagal house. She and her kids Ava, 11, and Deacon, 7, will enjoy 7 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms (!!!), and a sweet swimming pool on the 6,125-square-foot estate.

Let's take a peek inside.

Yeah, this place definitely needs some light and color and quite possibly a woman's touch. So dark and masculine! Definitely need comfier chairs for watching TV, too.

Some Reese Witherspoon style wouldn't hurt in this family room either. This room is definitely not zen.

Pretty bland bedroom, but I'm sure Reese will make it nice.

Ooh la la. Look at that pool and the bonus Asian-inspired garden alongside. I love how so many rooms in the house open up to the pool. Perfect for letting in light, entertaining, and day-to-day mom peace of mind.

Speaking of peace of mind, I wonder what Reese will do with Steven's Buddhist temple. What would you do with it?

Reese is only now moving out of the home she formerly shared with ex-husband and the kids' father, Ryan Phillippe. Here's to starting fresh, girl!

What do you think of Reese Witherspoon's choice of Steven Seagal's home? Think she can make it lovely?
