We loved Rachel Bilson as Summer Roberts in The O.C., then as Zoe Hart on Hart of Dixie, and we gladly welcomed her back on our small screens when she joined the cast of Nashville. Bilson isn’t only making fresh starts on TV; the actress, who recently split from Hayden Christensen, purchased this amazing $3.25 million mid-century home in the Linda Vista neighborhood of Pasadena, California. Scroll down to see a few pics of Bilson’s new abode, then head to Trulia for all the details.

The sprawling floor plan measures 3,678 square feet, with six bedrooms and four bathrooms. The living room features floor-to-ceiling windows, a cozy fireplace, built-in shelving, and amazing views of mountain scenery.

With so much natural light flooding into the kitchen, Bilson might have to wear shades when she’s making lunch for daughter Briar Rose (that she shares with Christensen).

A sliding glass door leads out to the landscaped backyard that has a little bit of everything: a pool, views of the canyons and mountains, an open-air courtyard, and plenty of shade for all-day lounging. Just a short drive from the glitz and glam of Hollywood, this Pasadena home is truly a peaceful paradise.
