If those walls could talk … they'd have a lot to say.

According to property records, Reese Witherspoon is thisclose to unloading her massive — and rather famous — estate in California's Ojai Valley.

While the "Mud" actress initially listed the nine bedroom, seven bathroom, 5,000-square-foot property for $10 million, the sale-pending price tag shows she's taking $5.9 million for it.

And while that multimillion-dollar price is still nothing to scoff at, when the storied house's history is factored in, it sounds like a steal!

Witherspoon, 37, actually said her "I do's" to second husband, CAA agent Jim Toth, in the backyard in 2011 — with Hollywood elite like Renée Zellweger, Sean Penn, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Downey Jr., and Tobey Maguire looking on, no less.

The mansion also served as a safe haven for her "Water for Elephants" co-star Robert Pattinson after news broke that his then-girlfriend Kristen Stewart had an affair with director Rupert Sanders.

Originally built in 1923 as horse stables for glass mogul Edward Drummond Libbey, Witherspoon turned the Mediterranean-style home and surrounding stables into a full-on farm, keeping donkeys, goats, pigs, chickens, and four dogs on the lot, which sits high in the Ojai hills and on seven acres of land.

"As soon as I drive through the gate, I relax," the Tennessee native, who bought the property from interior designer Kathryn Ireland in 2008, told Elle Décor while showing off the land for its cover in 2012. "The air is fresh, the phone isn't ringing, you can't access email. Time slows down. Within an hour, I'm lying on that couch taking a big fat nap. It's like having a little bit of Tennessee in California."

Though, even then the Oscar winner showed signs of detachment, calling herself merely the land's "caretaker."

"When you buy a beautiful piece of art, you don't really own it," she explained.

That statement just got a lot more literal.
