Rachel Bilson is definitely not in “The O.C.” anymore.

The actress dropped $3.25 million for a mid-century, contemporary home on Linda Ridge Road just above the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Variety reported.

Bilson’s new pad spans nearly 3,700 square feet and has six bedrooms and four bathrooms. Floor-to-ceiling windows, a stereo system, a wet bar and a uniquely-shaped swimming pool are included in the retro home.

Notable architect Gregory Ain custom built the home in 1950 for Walter W. Ralphs Jr., heir of the Ralphs grocery store chain. The local landmark is fittingly dubbed “Ralphs House.”

The Pasadena home was previously listed for rent at nearly $5,600 a month, property records show. It hit the market at just under $3 million late July.

Michael Bell of Sotheby’s International Realty had the listing.

The actress, best known for her roles in “Nashville” and “The O.C.”, recently spit from longtime boyfriend and co-parent Hayden Christensen. The two shared a four-bedroom home above Sherman Oaks up until it sold earlier this year to Lucky Brand executive Barry Perlman for $3.8 million. [Variety]Natalie Hoberman
