Renée Zellweger's childhood home looks like a boutique hotel - see inside

The property where the Bridget Jones star grew up was up for sale

The home where Renée Zellweger spent her childhood in Texas is so stunning it has the feeling of a boutique hotel. With free-standing roll-top baths, four poster beds and luxurious wooden detailing, the home, which went on the market just before the Coronavirus pandemic, is a really stunning space.

Back in February, the property went up for sale for $750,000 and according to records, it sold in September. The house in which the Bridget Jones star grew up is a large bungalow comprised of four bedrooms, two large bathrooms and two half bathrooms, and is set on over two acres of land. The listing stated that this was "once home to famed actress Renée Zellweger" - before noting it would not last long on the market.

The study

Realtor Chrissy Namaki admitted the connection to Hollywood royalty certainly helped her job when it came to getting attention for the property.

Another thing that undoubtedly appealled to hardcore Renée fans is that the daughter of the most recent homeowners was a cheerleader with Renée as a child. “There’s still a history there,” Chrissy told the Houston Chronicle at the time. “We’ve gotten to hear some cool stories about that.”

The living room

When it comes to décor, the property prides itself on open spaces, with a neutral colour palette and several exposed brick features including walls and fireplaces. The living room features a built-in bookcase and exposed beam ceiling, and leads through to an open-plan kitchen, where you will find white cabinets and rustic brown-hued counters as well as a small bar area at one side.

Further down the hallway, the master bedroom features a large sliding closet door made from rustic wood to match the wooden floors running throughout the house, while the pièce de résistance in the master bathroom is a freestanding bath above which hangs a suitably countrified chandelier.
