Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence bought Jessica Simpson’s former Beverly Hills home reportedly for more than $7 million.

Designed by Kerry Joyce, the 5,500-square-foot five-bedroom home features a gym, gourmet kitchen and an outdoor stone courtyard that leads to a koi pond. There’s also a swimming pool in the back yard.

The Hamptons-inspired house was built in 1991 and recently renovated by Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture. Simpson originally bought the home in 2005 for $5.275 million on the heels of her divorce from singer Nick Lachey. She then sold it in late 2013 for $6.4 million. It was most recently listed at $7.895 million.

Other previous residents of the property include “Crocodile Dundee” star Paul Hogan, Hollywood manager Rick Yorn and Ellen DeGeneres. The seller’s identity was not disclosed. [Zillow] —TRD
