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.

Zellweger has been busy shuffling her real estate assets in 2012. Earlier this year, she found a buyer, the actress Leelee Sobieski, for two apartments that she put on the market in an Upper East Side building in 2010. [Real Estalker]
