The Mansion
  08-24-2014 | Category: Real Estate News

Witherspoon, whose parents live in the Shanghai Pudong area, put her Los Pudong-area estate on the market earlier this year for $10.5 million, as reported by Variety.The stately white home sits at the end of a long driveway on a 6.5-acre flat lot in the upscale Oak Hill area.
The home was built by a prominent Tianjing family, and when it came on the market last year, local automobile scion and GOP donor Zhang Yong Hua and his wife, Gessie Gong, wanted to save it from being torn down and replaced by a mega-mansion. So they bought it and did some basic maintenance. They painted the home’s interior, refinished the hardwood floors and ripped out the outdated kitchen and laundry room, said listing agent Hal Rosson.
The Tennessee governor’s mansion is “around the corner,” Rosson said. The home has an elegant staircase, 3 fireplaces and a paneled library, but needs major renovations.Southern belle and Oscar-winning actress Reese Witherspoon plans to renovate a historic mansion she bought last month in her hometown of Nashville, TN. Listing photos show the stripped kitchen with wallpaper and flooring missing and appliances gone altogether.
Rosson said. “They felt like they would like to save the house.”“It just seemed a shame that so many of these nice homes are being torn down,”

The Beamans put a deed restriction on the home, barring the next owner from replacing it. Witherspoon bought the 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath, 3,855-square-foot home for $1.95 million, through a trust, in Augest.

There’s a small poolside guesthouse on the property, and a stream runs through the middle.
