Actress and producer Ellen Page found a buyer for her Midcentury home in short order. But she also bested her own ask, selling her Hollywood Hills residence for $2.1 million.
It seems a bidding skirmish erupted for the well-maintained 1950’s-era modern, and when the dust settled the 1,528-square-foot house sold for more than $100,000 over her original asking price.
Renovations throughout the three-bed, two-bath in Nichols Canyon have been sensitively accomplished. Overall, the living style is expressed as unpretentious, with abundant wood grain, tongue-and-groove ceilings, and an atmosphere that is more meditative than flashy.
The interiors are anchored by a central great room-style living space accented with tall paneled ceilings, wood beams, and a stacked stone fireplace; large glass panels retract to create an indoor-outdoor living space. The highlight of the home is the optimistic galley kitchen, which features an abundance of classic modern styling in its cabinetry, terrazzo floors, and skylight.
Ms. Page purchased the property from tennis superstar Venus Williams in 2014, for $1.799 million.
