Actress Emily Wickersham’s 1935-built residence in Los Feliz went up for sale this summer and was quickly scooped up. The now-former NCIS cast member listed the four-bedroom, four-bath compound for $3.85 million and sold it at full ask.
The .17-acre property is designed as a lifestyle oasis, packing in a ranch, a pool house currently purposed as a breezy dining room, and a garage that works as a studio. All told, there’s 3,341 sq. ft. of living space at this address.
Renovations include steel-framed windows and doors, and some period-specific updates that include the kitchen backsplash. Original details accumulate quickly into a deliriously romantic atmosphere; topping the list is a kiva-shaped multi-pane picture window with a stained-glass insert, French casement windows, an arched living room fireplace with a red brick border, and flush build-in bookshelves. Toning and textures are varied and tasteful; dig the scalloped tile in the master bath.
Back to the kitchen, which is a gem. Aside from the Moorish-inspired tile, the room boasts an artful mix of butcher-block tops and glossy dark cabinetry, a tile floor that riffs on the backsplash pattern, and a seamless transition to a sunny dayroom with a large set of casements opening onto the property.
The outdoor living area is a courtyard with an outdoor fireplace, a fire lounge, and various sitting, dining and lounging areas.
