Denise Richards -- Packin'

6/25/2006 12:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Denise RichardsDenise Richards apparently isn't feeling the love in Westlake Village, a posh suburb in Los Angeles County.  According to the Hot Property column in Sunday's L.A. Times, Richards is putting her house on the market for $4.3 mil.
 
Richards bought the 7,400 square foot house last year, around the time she split from estranged hubby Charlie Sheen.  According to the Times, she paid just under $4 million.  With commissions and expenses, at best she'll break even, assuming she gets full asking price.
 
Here's the Hollywood twist.  Richards found the house with the help of her one-time friend, now arch-rival, Heather Locklear.  Richards is dating Locklear's estranged husband, Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi fame.

Denise Richards' house

Richards and Sheen are locked in a nasty divorce battle.  On Thursday, Sheen had his deposition taken and went face to face with Richards, creating what we're told was a "tense" situation.
 
Richards wants sole custody of the couple's two children.  Sheen wants joint custody.
 
Richards has made a variety of allegations against Sheen, claiming in effect his alleged dalliances on the internet and other activities make him unsuitable as a parent.  Sheen has denied all the allegations.
 
As for the Richards' house, it's a safe bet one of her motivations is to get away from her neighbor -- none other than Heather herself.  In other words, it's time to get out of dodge.
