You had me at seven fireplaces (and a bread oven).

 

Actress Renee Zellweger's Connecticut country home, on the market for $1.6 million, is hardly roughing it.

 

The luxury farmhouse, built in 1770 and updated in 2004, is a stylish and luxurious country getaway. Set on 38 acres overlooking the Quinebaug River in rural Pomfret Center, the retreat at 96 Cotton Road is 3,463 square feet with a top-of-the-line kitchen, a bread oven in the family room and a swimming pool.

 

ZillowThe updated home has old-fashioned charm with exposed beams and architectural details. There is also a guesthouse and a recreation space in the barn.

Zellweger, who won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for her role in "Cold Mountain," broke out with her 1996 performance in "Jerry Maguire" and endeared herself to audiences in "Bridget Jones's Diary" by wearing giant underpants.

 

She bought the Connecticut getaway in 2004 and has listed it at least once before.

The listing is held by Joanna Dresser of Christie's International Real Estate.

Very nice, but it looks like you have to go to Rhode Island to get there. It is also priced rather high compared to the surrounding properties.

How many loaves of bread has she baked in that family room "bread oven"?  She hasn't done any movies in years.  Just proves that "celebrities" can be hard-hit by the economy just like the rest of us "regular people".
