Brooke Shields is an actress and model who began her career in 1966 when she was just one year old. While she began her career as a child model, her success in this field continued into adulthood. However, she is now better known for her acting roles. Her first main acting role was at the age of 12 when she played the lead in the 1978 film ‘Pretty Baby.’ During her teens, Brooke Shields continued to act in films and television series while also continuing to model. Some of her films during this period included ‘The Blue Lagoon’ and ‘Endless Love.’ The actress suspended her modeling career to study for a degree in Romance Languages at Princeton University, and it was at this point that she decided to concentrate on building her acting career. Initially, she only landed small film roles. However, she went on to star in many films and also starred in various television series, including ‘Suddenly Susan’ and ‘Lipstick Jungle’. Brooke Shields has also had a recurring role in ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.’ Brooke Shields has also attracted media attention due to her relationships. In 1993, she began dating tennis professional Andre Agassi. The couple married in 1997 but divorced in 1999. Shields then married Chris Henchy, a television writer, in 2001. The couple has two daughters together. Due to the success of her career, Brooke Shields is a wealthy woman. According to Celebrity Net Worth, Brooke Shields’ net worth is around $40 million. Her wealth means that the actress and former model can afford to have two stunning homes on opposite sides of the United States. In the past, Shields has split her time between her homes in Greenwich Village, Manhattan, and Los Angeles. However, she is now spending most of her time in New York, so she has decided to put her East Coast property on the market, and it is listed for $8.195 million. Here is an overview of Brooke Shields’ rustic residence.
An Overview of Shields’ Pacific Palisades Property
The property that the actress is putting on the market is a rustic chalet-style. Shields bought the house more than two decades ago for $3.3 million. At the time, she was still married to her first husband, former professional tennis player Andre Agassi. Following their divorce, Shields retained the property, although she has not used it as her main residence. Over the past few years, Shields has listed the house on the rental market on several occasions. It was achieving a rental price of up to $35,000 a month fully furnished. At one point, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner rented the property while they were renovating their home in the same neighborhood. So, what can potential buyers expect from this $8.195 million house? It is a five-bedroom, 5.5-bathroom house property that was built in 1982. The house measures just over 5,300-square-feet that sits on a secluded plot of 0.43-acres in Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles. From its elevated position, there are gorgeous views across the canyon and over to the mountains.
The Interior of the Rustic Pacific Palisades Pad
Shields’ three-story home in Pacific Palisades has a rustic-chic style throughout and boasts whitewashed beamed ceilings and dark-stained Douglas fir hardwood floors. On stepping through the front door, there is a double-height foyer that connects to an open-plan style living room that consists of the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Due to the open layout of this space and the windows on either side of the house, the room is a light and airy space. Directly from the foyer is the living room, which boasts a fireplace and doors leading out to a wraparound terrace. The living room leads through to both a formal dining room with an eight-seater dining suite and a chef’s kitchen.
In the latter, there are top-of-the-range appliances, white cabinetry, and a marble-topped island that is practical as an additional work surface but also acts as an eat-in island. Both the dining room and the kitchen have stunning views across the surrounding area. In addition to the formal dining room and the eat-in kitchen, there is also an informal dining room that has a fireplace and a bench-style dining suite. According to Dirt.com, four of the bedrooms are on the property’s lower level. Other rooms on the lower floor include a wet bar, a media lounge, and a games room. The entire upper floor of the property is consumed by a sumptuous, penthouse-style master retreat. It includes a spacious bedroom equipped with a fireplace, an office, and a separate sitting room that opens out to a balcony that looks out to the Getty Museum. It also has a spa-inspired bathroom that includes features such as a soaking tub, a marble-clad steam shower, a fireplace, and a makeup vanity. Furthermore, there is a dressing room and a walk-in closet.
Features of the Chalet’s Grounds
The exterior of the house is wood-clad, which reflects the rustic interior of Brooke Shields’ East Coast home. At the front of the property, there is a gated driveway that leads to a brick motor court that has ample space for parking several vehicles. Shrubs and potted plants line the driveway. Most of the 0.43-acres of grounds are to the house’s rear, and the grounds are steeply sloped due to the hillside position of the property. In the backyard, there is a decked area that is ideal for alfresco dining and entertaining. From the decked area, there are beautiful views across the surrounding landscape. The rear garden is in a picturesque setting with wooded surroundings that offer the property privacy. A paved pathway leads down the garden to the other end of the garden, where there is a secluded swimming pool that boasts a spa and a pretty water feature.
