The veteran actress has placed her 1920s storybook Tudor in the Eastside Los Angeles neighbourhood of Silver Lake on the market for a dash under US$4 million
Though she bought it barely two years ago, actress Andie MacDowell has now decided to turn the page on her classic Storybook Tudor.
The longtime L’Oréal ambassador and veteran actress has hoisted the property in the Eastside Los Angeles neighbourhood of Silver Lake back on the market for a dash under US$4 million—or US$100,000 less than she paid for the place amid a fierce bidding war back in November 2021.
Nestled on a compact parcel, and separated from the street out front by a landscaped yard dotted with towering cypress trees, the whitewashed structure was originally built in 1928. Recently remodelled, the two-storey house features five bedrooms and four baths in a little more than 316 square metres of stylish, neutrally hued living space boasting blonde hardwood floors, gentle curves, high ceilings and lots of natural light.
Main-level highlights include a spacious formal living room sporting a large Palladian fanlight window and wood-burning fireplace decorated with a stylish veined-marble surround, along with a formal dining room flaunting another large window and a ballon-like chandelier. An updated kitchen is outfitted with an eat-in island, a La Cornue range and Miele appliances tucked away behind custom panels, plus backsplashes and countertops matching the marble in the living room fireplace.
A curving staircase heads upstairs, where there’s a family/media room offering panoramic views of the Silver Lake Reservoir, along with a dreamy primary bedroom suite holding a sitting area, walk-in closet, and luxe bath equipped with dual vanities, an oval soaking tub, glass-encased shower and yet more of that beautiful marble that seems to be a running theme throughout.
Outdoors, the fenced grounds are laced with native California plantings, and host a small pool designed by local landscape firm Terremoto. There’s also a two-car garage with a loft that’s been converted into the ideal space for relaxing and entertaining.
In addition to her for-sale house, the 65-year-old South Carolina native also owns a vacation house in Montana. She sold a two-home compound in L.A.’s Highland Park neighbourhood last year for US$2.7 million.
The listing is held by Natalie Trabin of Compass.
