If you have an extra $3.45 million sitting around, you may want to take a look at the English Country manor-style home of the model, actress, and author Rachel Hunter. The 4,500 square foot Hollywood Hills home was purchased in April 2004 for $2.425. The home features an oversized lot, five bedrooms and five baths.

Who is Rachel Hunter?
Rachel Hunter hails from Glenfield, a suburb of Auckland, New Zealand. At the age of just 16, she was a top model walking the runways in Paris and throughout Europe. Most people think of hunter as a model, but she’s been in several movies, videos and TV shows including the Aussie-version America’s Got Talent.
Hunter’s has many other talents. She authored a book of her travels titled “Tour of Beauty,” but over the last couple of years, Hunter’s passion has moved into another realm. She has become a mediation and yoga instructor splitting her time between India, New Zealand in Los Angeles.
With this busy “on-the-go” lifestyle, there’s no doubt that Rachel has very little time to spend in her opulent LA home.
