Jodie Foster’s Beverly Hills Home is Trophy Worthy

The Oscar winner’s Los Angeles-area estate is an elegant private aerie with dazzling views


Two-time Academy Award winner Jodie Foster (for The Accused and Silence of the Lambs) is known for her intelligence, taste, and professionalism, and it is only fitting that her residence high above Beverly Hills, California, reflects the actress’s exacting attention to detail and practiced eye for design and privacy. Recently listed at $15.9 million by David Kramer of Christie’s International Real Estate’s exclusive Affiliate Hilton & Hyland, the 7,500-square-foot home, dating to the 1950s but newly renovated, is situated near Coldwater Canyon and is protected from the street by a privacy hedge. But once visitors cross the threshold, a whole sunlit world opens up, with panoramic vistas and gleaming interiors.

Elegant and understated, Jodie Foster’s Coldwater Canyon residence is immaculate, private, and newly renovated.

The entry foyer of Foster’s home is notable for its double-height vertical sweep, charmingly punctuated by a fanciful mid-century modern-style chandelier and dramatic staircase that leads to the private living areas comprising five bedrooms in all. This entryway immediately opens into the main living room just beyond.

Dark woods in the home’s flooring form a pleasing contrast with the gleaming white and grey walls of the interior.

As guests proceed through the residence, they enter the main living area, distinguished by its oversized fireplace, generous, wide floor-to-ceiling French windows, and views of the canyon below. When one steps out onto the trellis-shaded brick terrace just beyond, the view opens up to include vistas of Beverly Hills, Century City, Santa Monica, and the Pacific Ocean.

The home’s luminous living room enjoys floor-to-ceiling French windows that open out to a brick terrace with canyon views.

Adjacent to the living room is a country-style kitchen with vaulted, beamed ceilings, state-of-the-art appliances, and large doors that open out to the brick terrace with an outdoor fireplace, grill, and dining areas. (Other ground-floor rooms include a sweeping, formal dining room and a media-viewing room.)

The same color scheme of dark flooring and white-and-grey walls is continued in the rustic-style kitchen which enjoys additional living space on the brick terrace just beyond.

Stepping outside, the visitor will appreciate the generous lawn and swimming pool area, which benefits from the same outstanding views as other vantages on the half-acre grounds. The expansive deck surrounding the pool enjoys dedicated spaces for both sunbathing and dining, as well as a patio shaded by another leafy trellised arbor.

The home’s most commanding profile is seen from the pool area, which dramatizes its balconied and trellised appointments.

The second story of the house is, of course, where the master bedroom may be found—along with other bedrooms and guest accommodations. The master suite is distinguished by its beamed, vaulted ceilings, fireplace, and private deck, which is also accessible from the en suite master bathroom.

Upstairs, the master suite is grace with a mitred corner window with views toward the Pacific

The home’s second story living areas truly benefit from the outstanding views afforded by the unique lot, which is distinctive for its size (more than a half acre), seclusion, and commanding location. The grounds are also notable for their mature tree plantings and generous lawn.

The master suite deck is perfect for enjoying the view, especially at sunset.

All told, this secluded, immaculate residence—perched on a high ridgeline and yet only minutes away from Beverly Hills, is the perfect trophy home, whether or not its owner happens to have a few Oscar trophies on its fireplace mantels.
