Sally Field sells Malibu house


Oscar-winning actress Sally Field has sold her Malibu house for $5.65 million, the Multiple Listing Service shows.

The two-story ranch-style home sits on 3 acres with separate guest quarters, a pool, a lighted tennis court, a three-stall horse paddock and access to nearby riding trails on more than 2,000 acres of park land. The main home was built in 1958 and had been owned by Olivia Newton-John. Five bedrooms and six bathrooms lie within nearly 6,000 square feet of living space.

Since she starred on the ‘60s TV series “Gidget” and “The Flying Nun,” Field, 64, has made a name for herself on the big screen too in such films “Forrest Gump” (1994), “Places in the Heart” (1984) and “Norma Rae” (1979). She had a role in the recently canceled “Brothers & Sisters” (2006-present) and will play Mary Todd Lincoln in the Steven Spielberg-directed film “Lincoln,” to be released next year.

Field bought the property in 2004 for $4,822,500.

Douglas E. Carroll of Prudential Malibu Realty and David Offer of Prudential Brentwood were the listing agents, according to the MLS.
