When most Hollywood stars decide to buy a house in the country, it’s fair to say they opt for a substantial pile complete with all the trimmings of pool and tennis court.
But a small farmhouse with a rusty old barn? In Louisiana?
Well, that’s what Scarlett Johansson and husband Ryan Reynolds have plumped for in their latest real estate acquisition.

Even by U.S. standards, the two-storey building with a separate garage is fairly small. But this seems to be the kind of house the couple, who married in 2008, prefer.

Their previous Los Angeles home had only four bedrooms and five bathrooms, which was considered to be conservative for the Hollywood scene.

The 25-year-old Lost In Translation actress and her husband had restored the colonial style building to its former glory as well as updating it with a variety of eco-friendly touches such as solar heating.

Having a smaller home means fewer household chores which is a consideration for Scarlett.
