If you’ve ever wanted to see inside a celebrity home, the Jane Fonda house is open and she’s giving you a personal tour via video

It isn’t often an A-List celebrity invites you in to take a personal tour of a beloved house she’s about to sell. But two-time Oscar-winning actress Jane Fonda has made a very intimate video describing all the things she loves about her modern, 7,100-square-foot Trousdale Estates home, as she puts it on the market for $13 million.

Of course, the 79-year-old actress is able to deliver a great performance, but Fonda is a picture of sincerity (and the Fountain of Youth) as she talks about how much she and her partner, record producer Richard Perry, have enjoyed the four-bedroom, seven-bath home overlooking the city.


In the video, Fonda reminisces about a spectacular party held in the spacious home. “We had my 75th birthday party here. We had a hundred people, could have had another hundred and fifty,” she says.

Listing agents Jade Mills and Valerie Fitzgerald of Coldwell Banker Previews remember that event in the Jane Fonda house as well. “The house is perfect for entertaining,” says Mills. “They transformed it from a cold, modern white box into a beautiful contemporary home that’s very warm and inviting.”

Both agents agree Fonda’s favorite features are the spacious master bath and a closet that is bigger than most people’s living rooms.

“When I saw the woman’s bathroom … If I hadn’t already been sold on the house, that would have done it,” Fonda says. “And then the closet! This is the first time in my 79 years that I can walk in and see everything that I have!”

Another eye-catching feature? The elevator, according to the listing agents. As Fonda herself says, “There is this amazing glass elevator. I mean it’s like a gem.”

Other fabulous elements include a gym, a media room with a full bar and cork floors,

three fire features outside, and a meditation garden with a fountain. Plus the property is eco-conscious, with photovoltaic electric panels, thermal glass windows with motorized shades, and bamboo floors.

So, if this estate is such a paradise, why in heaven’s name would Fonda want to leave? “They’re ready for a different lifestyle,” says Mills. “It’s a very large property—the lot is 36,000 square feet.” But she says one thing is certain: Fonda and Perry will be staying in the vicinity.

“Whoever ends up with it,” Fonda says of her house, “I hope you love it as much as we have.”
