When I saw that Reese Witherspoon listed her country retreat in Ojai, California, this week, I was stunned. Why, Reese? Why would you sell Libbey Ranch? This is my dream house. If it were mine, you’d have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands. No way would I let it go.

I wish I had the $10 million to buy it now that it’s back on the market. Sadly, I don’t. I was pretty excited to see more of her lovely property in the listing photos, though. Take a look:

According to Zillow, “The house was originally built as a stable for Edward Libbey, the glassware magnate, who is also considered the modern founding father of Ojai. Libbey commissioned celebrity architect Wallace Neff, who put his own touch on the property.”

The house made headlines this year when Reese reportedly let her friend and former co-star Robert Pattinson hole up here after Bella Kristen Stewart cheated on him. (Maybe a Twihard will buy it since he slept here?)

It was recently featured in a gorgeous Elle Decor spread. The designer who worked with Reese on the house was Kristen Buckingham.

Buckingham contacted me and shared some “outtakes” from the Elle Decor shoot. Loved seeing this behind-the-scenes shot of the kitchen, while it was still in the staging process for the photos (you can see more they didn’t use on Kristen’s FB page):

I always enjoy seeing how a house evolves over time with different owners, decorators, and styles. Here’s how the kitchen looked when designer Kathryn Ireland lived in the house and it was featured in House Beautiful:

Here’s a room I don’t remember seeing photos of before:

Libbey Ranch was the site of Reese’s wedding to Jim Toth last year, so you’d think there would be some sentimental reasons to hang onto it.

The ranch has 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths in the main house, along with a barn, horse stables, and a carriage house. It sits on 7 private acres that include an organic garden and a pool.

If you missed it, I wrote a post comparing how it looks now to how it looked when designer Kathryn Ireland lived in the house: Reese Witherspoon’s Sweet Retreat.
