A little over three years ago, during the pandemic, Haylie Duff ditched the bright lights of Hollywood and acquired a new residence in her home state of Texas. The actress and singer recently told People that she and her longtime partner Matt Rosenberg and their two daughters had wanted to “take a chance and do something really different.”
But that was then! Now Duff has changed her mind and is hoisting her Santa Barbara-style home about 20 minutes northwest of downtown Austin back on the market, asking $3.2 million—or almost $2 million more than the place was originally listed for back in October 2020. But she still maintains a foothold in the area, having purchased and renovated a lakeside vacation house less than a mile away.

Custom built by Eppright Homes and completed in 2013, the creamy stucco and terracotta-roof structure up for sale is tucked securely behind a gated driveway, on a 1-acre parcel in the exclusive Spanish Oaks neighborhood pocket. Inside, four bedrooms and matching number of baths are spread across a little more than 4,200 square feet of two-level living space boasting hardwood floors, coffered ceilings, arched doorways, crown molding and designer light fixtures throughout.
Main-level highlights include a double-height foyer displaying a formal living room on one side and a curving staircase that leads up to a secluded office space with a built-in desk on the other. From there, a family room has bi-folding glass doors spilling out to a terrace, and a sleekly designed gourmet kitchen is outfitted with quartz countertops, dual islands, high-end stainless appliances, a butler’s pantry and an accompanying dining area flanked by a study nook.
In addition to a lounge space, another study nook and a large covered balcony upstairs, a spacious primary bedroom sports a sitting area nestled alongside a bay window, double-sided walk-in closet, and luxe bath equipped with dual vanities, a soaking tub and glass-encased shower; and outdoors, the grounds are spotlighted by a pool and spa, grilling station and far-reaching greenbelt views. There’s also an attached three-car garage and additional parking for up to four more vehicles, plus a $440-per-month HOA fee that allows the new owner access to the community’s resort-style pool and golf club.
The 38-year-old film and TV actress first gained mainstream attention in 2004 as Summer Wheatley in Napoleon Dynamite, earning a Teen Choice Award for “Choice Movie Breakout Performance.” The older sister of fellow actress Hilary Duff, she’s also known for her roles in 7th Heaven and Material Girls, as well as The Real Girl’s Kitchen cooking show she hosted back in 2014.
