Jane Fonda Sells Beverly Hills Home

In the heart of Beverly Hills, a residence with a storied past and a touch of Hollywood glamour has hit the market once again. The former home of Jane Fonda and Richard Perry, located in the prestigious Trousdale Estates neighborhood, is a testament to the couple's taste and the life they shared before their separation. This modern architectural gem, originally purchased by Fonda and Perry in 2012 for $7.3 million, is now listed for just under $11 million.

Jane Fonda, an Oscar-winning actress known as much for her activism as her roles in film and television, found this house to be a place of happiness and celebration. It was here that she celebrated her 75th birthday, surrounded by friends and family, in a home that she once said felt right from the moment she and Perry drove through the gate. However, after eight years together, the couple decided to part ways, leading to the sale of this iconic property.

The house itself is a marvel of modern design, built in the early 1960s and updated to meet contemporary standards without losing its original charm. Spanning over 7,100 square feet, the property features four bedrooms, six bathrooms, bamboo floors, vaulted ceilings, and double-glazed walls of glass that blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living. The living room, with its stacked-stone fireplace, is a focal point of the home, offering a cozy yet elegant space for gatherings.

The gourmet kitchen is equipped with high-end appliances and opens to a breakfast room and an outdoor dining terrace, perfect for entertaining guests or enjoying a quiet morning. The master suite offers a fireside retreat, dual walk-in closets, and luxurious baths, providing a private oasis within the home.

Outside, the property boasts a solar-heated swimming pool, sundeck, fire pit, and a meditation garden with a fountain, all set against the backdrop of ocean and mountain vistas. These features, along with the home's rich history and connection to Fonda's life and activism, make it a unique find in the Beverly Hills real estate market.

Jane Fonda's activism has spanned several decades, marking her as a prominent figure in advocating for social and environmental causes. Beyond her illustrious career in Hollywood, Fonda has been deeply involved in climate change activism, co-founding the organization Fire Drill Fridays, which focuses on raising awareness and prompting action on environmental issues. Her commitment to social justice has also seen her support gender equality, indigenous rights, and fair labor practices. At age 86 Fonda is as active as ever and was arrested in 2020 during a climate protest. 

As this property enters a new chapter, it continues to embody the spirit of its former owners—grounded in history, yet forward-looking and luxurious. It stands as a piece of Beverly Hills' architectural history and a reminder of the lives and stories that have unfolded within its walls.
