Jane Fonda once said she knew this tasteful Beverly Hills beauty was a house where she could live very happily as soon as she and Richard Perry drove through the gate for the very first time. The couple went on to pay late film and TV director John Rich $7.3 million for the place in summer 2012, and Fonda even held a party there to celebrate her 75th birthday.
But life happens. After eight years together, the Oscar-winning actress and her music-producer partner wound up splitting and putting the home up for sale in January 2017 for a little less than $13 million. Finally purchased a year later by an unnamed Irish celebrity for a substantially reduced $8.5 million, and leased out in the years since, the modern residence in the Trousdale Estates neighborhood has now returned to the market, this time asking a speck under $11 million.

Built in the early 1960s, and subsequently updated, the two-story structure is fronted by a gated motorcourt flanked by an attached three-car garage. Tucked away on almost an acre of land overlooking ocean and mountain vistas, the four-bedroom, six-bath abode features a little more than 7,100 square feet of open-concept living space boasting bamboo floors, vaulted ceilings and double-glazed walls of glass providing seamless indoor/outdoor environs.
The many highlights include an entry foyer displaying a staircase and glass-encased elevator, plus a window-lined great room anchored by a dining area and sunken living room equipped with a stacked-stone fireplace stretching to the ceiling and an adjacent wet bar. A family room sits next to the gourmet kitchen, which is outfitted with an eat-in island, verde quartz countertops, high-end Miele and Wolf appliances, and a breakfast room with sliding glass doors leading out to an al fresco dining terrace.
A fireside master retreat on the main level is spotlighted by a separate sitting area and an office space, as well as dual walk-in closets and luxe baths; and the lower level holds a gym, a seated bar, lounge area and screening room clad with cork floors. The amenities continue out to the tree-laced grounds, which host numerous patios, a solar-heated swimming pool surrounded by a sundeck, fire-pit and serene meditation garden bolstered by a fountain.
