Famously portrayed by Julia Roberts in Steven Soderbergh's award-winning "Erin Brockovich," she's best-known for her role in an antipollution lawsuit against Pacific Gas & Electric, which was settled in 1996 for $333 million. Since her landmark success, she's campaigned against toxic mold, water fluoridation, and other environmental and health issues.
But at home, it's all about luxury. The home's entryway is pure elegance, with a curved staircase -- complete with white wainscoting -- hugging the walls and an enormous chandelier overhead.
Enormous doesn't even begin to convey the vastness of the split-level master closet, with two rooms and enough storage space for several families' clothing.
The 5,021-square-foot house offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains from the backyard patio, with plenty of room for lounging poolside or by the fire pit.
