Demi Moore buys home in Calif. for $3.4 million
Actress Demi Moore has purchased a home in Beverly Hills, Calif., for about $3.4 million.
The four-bedroom, five-bathroom home, on nearly an acre dotted with oak and sycamore trees, was built in the 1950s but was recently redesigned.
The 4,500-plus-square-foot house has a glass-and-steel entry and a two-story living room.
The home also has a library, recreation room, koi pond and pool.
Moore began her acting career as a regular on the daytime drama General Hospital. She later starred in such films as Ghost (1990), Indecent Proposal (1993), Disclosure (1994), The Scarlet Letter (1995), Striptease (1995), G.I. Jane (1997) and Passion of the Mind (2000). She had a role in this summer's Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle.
Since her 1998 split with actor Bruce Willis, she has spent much of her time raising their three daughters in Idaho.
