Riverdale star Madelaine Petsch picked up a perch in Los Angeles this summer, spending $3.38 million on this heavily renovated, 1938-built Mediterranean. The 3,575 sq. ft. residence’s revision is cohesive, striking a nice balance between modern reticence and earthy warmth, with just enough material flash.
Taking point on the flash front is surely the fireplace in the step down living room, clad in marble with borderline stunning figuring, and an understated but insistent border in its surround. Steel-framed windows and doors have been added as well.
Highlights of the shared spaces include an alcove reading nook with a built-in divan flanked by bookshelves and a casement window. The staircase in this three-bedroom house is also unusually fine; a U-shaped design with discrete sections and a picture-window landing, it is further distinguished by a soft slope and very broad treads.
A spiral staircase accesses the back yard from the upper level terrace. Down on terra firma, a secluded and slightly elevated fire lounge with a pergola, an outdoor bar, and a raised patio with stacked stone retaining walls fill out the lot.
Petsch’s upcoming projects include About Fate and Jane.
