Sally Field Lists Malibu Home for $5.9 Million

Sally Field home for saleYes, we really do like her. Academy Award-winning actress Sally Field just listed her long-time Malibu home at $5.9 million. Singer Olivia Newton-John, another sweetheart of the '70s, formerly owned the property.

The 6,000-square-foot home sits on 3.5 secluded acres, up a Malibu canyon with mountain and canyon views. The five-bedroom property backs up onto a 2,000-acre land conservancy and has a large pool, lighted tennis/sports court, a three-stall horse paddock and is easily accessible to hiking trails.

The home was listed for sale in 2009 for about a million bucks more; we all know how that turned out.

Built in 1958, the two-story home has an updated gourmet kitchen, separate master bedroom suite and the de rigueur media room. (See photos of the 2009 listing here.)

Field, who shot to fame as TV's "Gidget" in 1965--then shot even higher as "The Flying Nun"--immortalized the "you like me" line in her 1979 Academy Award acceptance speech for her starring role as union organizer "Norma Rae." We're sure there will be space in her new digs for her second Oscar, which she won for "Places in the Heart" in 1984, and the Emmy she took home in 2001 for her reccurring role as Dr. Abby Lockhart's bipolar mother on "ER."

Douglas E. Carroll of Prudential Malibu Realty has co-listed the property with David Offer of that agency's Brentwood office, according to the MLS.

Is she trying to beat the 3.8% tax she will have to pay when she sells it? You know the provision that was stuck in the voluminous Obamacare bill that will be taking effect soon unless the conservatives rework the bill.

I'm sure she's moving because of the radiation from Fukushima coming ashore, though she won't admit it publicly.

Surely you must mean "Somewhere in Time": with Christopher Reeve and Jane Seymour.
