Critically acclaimed actress Charlize Theron had little trouble selling this updated Spanish style in Los Angeles; the property above Beverly Grove hit the open market late last month with an asking price of $1.995 million, and moved into contingent status less than two weeks later.
The two-bedroom is comfortably ensconced within a steep and formidable border of privacy hedges, where it unfolds its exterior living style of terra-cotta tile step-up terrace, lap pool, lawn, and studio. Inside, the home’s living style is expressed in updated period terms, with arched doorways, candle sconces, natural, low-gloss plank hardwood, and bright white.
The home’s step-up kitchen and dining area is a treat; the dining room has been staged as a dayroom for the shoot, which emphasizes the cozy romance of the home’s layout while offering a luxurious sense of space that spills out through a fanlight-flanked multi-pane glass door to the exterior living area. The kitchen is unusually spacious for a 1,500 square-footer, and serious chefs searching for shelter in L.A. should put this house on their must-see list, although the location, refined interior and overall seclusion of the spot should make it a must-see for anyone with two million dollars to spend.
As of writing, backup offers are being accepted for the home.
Theron’s upcoming projects include the 10th and 11th installments of the Fast & Furious franchise. She also stars in the upcoming superhero film The Old Guard 2.
