    Default Cameron Diaz Buys $10m Beverly Hills Home‎

    It's certainly a far cry from the grotty and smelly swamp where her animated husband Shrek likes to wallow.
    But Cameron Diaz knows that his sprawling three-acre Hollywood mansion would definitely suit her Princess Fiona down to the ground.
    The actress has just splashed out on this $10million home deep in the heart of Beverly Hills.

    Cosy: With it's wooden beams, gold-plated framed paintings and big comfortable sofas, the living room has an English country home feel to it

    Quite time: The reading corner is the perfect place for some relaxation

    And while Cameron, 37, might not claim to be a self-professed Anglophile, it certainly wouldn't look out of place in the English countryside.
    The living room, with its wooden beams, gold-plated framed paintings and big comfortable sofas, give off a cosy, cottage feel to the place.
    And by coincidence, it doesn't look too unsimilar to the English cottage in The Holiday, the 2006 film Cameron stars in alongside Jude Law, Kate Winslet and Jack Black.

    Open plan: The living room, seen here from a different angle, looks out over the swimming pool and back garden

    Come dine with me: The spacious dining area, lit by chandelier and surrounded by bookshelves, looks out over the living room

    New owner: Cameron Diaz, seen here at the Knight and Day premiere in Brazil last week, probably can't wait to settle into her home

    In the film, Cameron's character swaps houses with Kate who ends up in Los Angeles, while Cameron ends up in a cottage in cold, snowy England.
    And the reading corner with a view over the private, gated community is a perfect place for Miss Diaz to sit and relax with a lovely cup of tea.
    The 5,000 sq ft single storey house comes with an open plan living room that has two seating areas and also includes a dining room.
    It has six-and-a-half bathrooms - the half possibly being just a toilet - a detached three bedroom guesthouse, a tennis court and swimming pool with hot tub.
    The mansion used to belong to actress Candice Bergen, 64, best known for her role as Carrie Bradshaw's boss at Vogue in Sex and the City, and the female villain in Miss Congeniality.
    And Diaz will be surrounded by friends and famous faces when she moves into her bachelorette pad.
    Her neighbours included Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Jessica Simpson and Madonna's manager Guy Oseary.
    Newlyweds Penelope Cruz and Javier Barden also live a stone's throw away after they forked out over $3million for a home in the community.
    But Cameron, who is believed to be dating baseball star Alex Rodriguez, may not be making it a permanent move as she also owns a $1.35million home not to far away behind the Chateau Marmont Hotel.

    Hidden: For a Hollywood A-lister like Cameron, this secluded home is ideal for privacy

    Lazy summer evenings: The gazebo at the end of the garden, which comes with lights and comfy chairs, is the perfect place to relax

    Not that she has even had time to get settled in yet, having been jetting around the world on a promotional tour for her new film.
    Cameron is currently starring in Knight and Day alongside Tom Cruise and the co-stars have been to Brazil and Mexico so far for the movie's premieres.

    Fancy a dip? The swimming pool and hot tub is surrounded by luscious foliage and is perfect for secluded and private summer evening swims

    Anyone for doubles? Cameron can practice her ball skills on the tennis court

    I'm surprised how much I love this. I figured she and I would not have the same taste in houses.

    Like it a lot, particularly the outside. Very soothing, peaceful looking. I'd ditch the tennis court ASAP though, but that's just me.

    I wonder what her furniture will look like?

    I do like the house.

    Boring furniture. The strategically placed books on the table look silly, imo.

    I absolutely love it. It's very warm and inviting. Not sure I'd plonk down 10 mil (even if I had it!) but it's great!

    i agree.
    i would also remodel the pool. nothing organic looking. i would go for a geometric design. and that little bridge near the gazebo has to go as well.

    I hate the overbooked table look as well.

    But I like the house. I like the little bridge outside(looks like it goes over a fake dry stream bed-I would make that look more natural and less like a small concrete lined ditch), but I do not like the gazebo.

    Overall I like the spaces. I wish we got to see more of it, like the bedrooms, the guest house(hell at three bedrooms that is a whole additional real house!).

    I would have to add more 'pops' of color inside and out though. The way it is now, it would make me want to curl up and sleep all the time..almost too restful.

    And I would learn to play tennis...good excuse to have some nice hot tennis instructor!

    ..and I could practice MY ball skillz.

    This place was indeed so perfect. Though it looks so lonely inside, the place outside was just too perfect. It was so peaceful and calm, especially the Gazebo which makes it more romantic. The basic advantage of a gazebo is that it provides a roofed area for protection against the sun or rain. Having a gazebo in your garden allows you to stay outdoors and relax even under the hot sun or during a rainy day.
