Actress-model Katie Holmes may have tried to move quietly into her new home in Calabasas last month, but it didn’t take neighbors long to figure out who she was and for TMZ to spill the news.

The ex-Mrs. Tom Cruise and mother of Suri spent $3.795 million for a 6,200-square-foot house and guest house in a gated community, public records show.

Priced most recently at $3.899 million, the half-acre estate borders undeveloped land.

The elegant-looking interiors center on a high-ceilinged hall/foyer with a staircase leading to a library loft.


Large windows and French doors bring light into the formal dining room and living rooms. The updated kitchen, with a large eat-at island, opens to a family room with a corner fireplace. There are six bedrooms and seven bathrooms.

Outdoor spaces include a covered patio, a pool deck, a swimming pool with a spa, a step-down fire pit, a sports court and lawn.

Holmes, 35, was featured in the miniseries “The Kennedys” (2011) and was on “Dawson’s Creek” from 1998 to 2003. She’s in the 2014 films “The Giver,” “Miss Meadows,” “Days and Nights” and “Mania Days.”

The property previously sold four years ago for $1.85 million.

Isidora Fridman and Tomer Fridman of Ewing Sotheby’s International Realty were the listing agents. Because the deal closed outside the Multiple Listing Service, it remains to be learned who represented Holmes in her purchase.
