Sweet Home Alabama's Josh Lucas Sells L.A. Home He's Owned for Almost 20 Years for $2.2M
The 48-year-old actor has been living in Bali, Indonesia, where his son Noah, 7, attends a special, environmentally focused school
The 48-year-old actor and father of one, best known as the heartthrob in Reese Witherspoon’s 2002 rom-com Sweet Home Alabama, has sold his 2,835-square-foot Laurel Canyon abode for $2,197,000, PEOPLE confirms.
The property was first listed for $2,298,000 in October 2019, with Jacqueline Tager of Sotheby’s International Realty.
The three-bedroom, four-bathroom single family home was built in 1924 but was recently renovated by Interform Architecture. It uses “exclusively green, eco-friendly design principles,” according to the listing, which also states the home is “at the forefront of the low-carbon and sustainability movement.”
According to the Los Angeles Times, records show Lucas bought the house in 2002 for $452,000.
Lucas, who recently appeared in Ford vs. Ferrari, is currently living in Bali, Indonesia, where he relocated in order to enroll his son Noah Rev, 7, in a special environmentally focused school he describes as “such a special place.”
A gated courtyard provides an entry into the modern home, creating a barrier between the house and the street — perfect for providing privacy. Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin are rumored to have stayed at the property at one point, the listing description states.
Inside, guests are met with a spacious living room and dining room. A sleek eat-in kitchen is also located on the main floor. Neutral colors are used throughout the space, maintaining its chic, understated atmosphere.
Floor-to-ceiling doors on the ground level lead out to the backyard, where a massive patio, saltwater pool, entertaining space and spa can be found.
The second floor of the home is taken up entirely by the master suite, which leads out to a private, wrap-around balcony with views of the nearby Hollywood Hills. Two other ensuite bedrooms can be found on the other floors of the house.
