Jodie Foster first listed her Hollywood home back in June of 2013--for $6.399 million. In September of 2013 she dropped the price to $5.995 million. She still didn't find a buyer for the 6,000-square-foot Spanish-style home. In the spring of 2014, Foster once again listed the house--with a new agency--for $5.75 million. She finally sold it for what the Wall Street Journal reports as about $5 million.

Once Jodie Foster's primary residence, the home was a lot like the very private actress. It featured a surround of lush hedges and an entrance in the back. It has a wall just off the dining room that opens to a beautiful outdoor--very secluded--courtyard. With five bedrooms and six bathrooms, Foster had plenty of room for friends and family to visit, but because of the rather secluded image she portrayed to her public, what took place when the actress lived there is relatively unknown.

The home was built in 1935, and was previously owned by actress and fashion model Cheryl Tiegs. The identity of the home's newest owners hasn't yet been released.

Conrad Hitchcock of Hilton & Hyland represented the buyers. He didn't identify the buyers, but noted they loved the home’s “Spanish charm." He also added that the home requires "very little work."

“Jodie has taken immaculate care of it,” he said.

Forbes reports that Jodie Foster owns a Hollywood mansion that she purchased in 2012 for $11,750,000. It is noted that she wasn't living in the Spanish-style home at the time of its sale.

Jodie Foster has long led a fairly reclusive private life. She will long be remembered for outing herself during an emotional speech as she accepted a lifetime achievement award at the 2013 Golden Globes. She married Alexandra Hedison in April of this year.

Hopefully Jodie Foster and her wife are enjoying the privacy wherever they may be living now that she once enjoyed in her Spanish-style home--not to mention the $5 million she just reeled in from the sale.
