Academy Award winning actress Renée Zellweger. has listed her sprawling, 39-acre Pomfret, Conn. estate on the market for $1.5 million, according to Real Estalker, and is putting her celebrity status to good use in helping to sell the property.

“Socially, architecturally and aesthetically, Pomfret is the embodiment of the old-fashioned American small town,” she said in a recent release about the listing, “while it is simultaneously, a culturally rich and sophisticated community.”

Zellweger purchased the estate, the main house of which is a 1779 Colonial, 3,400-square-foot property with four bedrooms and three bathrooms, as well as a guest house and a barn, for $1.32 million in 2004 as a vacation retreat. She renovated, updated and upgraded the property’s primary structures, Real Estalker said.

Jonathan Radford of Coldwell Banker has the listing.
