Andie MacDowell is looking to part with a whimsical Silver Lake cottage, listing the 1928 Storybook Tudor for $3.99 million after a brief ownership. Though marked down from her 2021 purchase price, the half-timbered, 3,461 sq. ft. haven still evokes timeless magic. And it looks like it may have already seduced a buyer—it is currently pending sale.
Nestled near the reservoir, the .16-acre grounds exude pastoral charm. Inside, original details enchant—arched doorways, oak woodwork, a sweeping staircase. Contemporary finishes like the chef’s kitchen tastefully modernize without detracting from old-world spirit.
Five bedrooms accommodate family and guests beneath the steeply pitched roofline. The grand upper level with lake views provides scenic lounging, while the indulgent owner’s suite offers a spa-like bath. Outdoors, stone paths meander towards the pool, complementing the landscape’s drought-tolerant plantings.
For MacDowell, this whimsical retreat proved all too ephemeral. Perhaps a screenwriter will find creative inspiration relishing this home’s storybook aura. Whoever recognizes the cottage’s magic can claim a timeless Hollywood hideaway.
MacDowell’s upcoming projects include action thriller Red Right Hand, with Orlando Bloom, and comedy film Goodrich, with Michael Keaton and Mila Kunis.
