Built in 1919, the home’s undergone substantial renovations. It’s been decorated by celebrity interior designer Brenda Antin, who cleverly managed to keep and incorporate many aspects of the bungalow’s vintage charm.
The home dates to a time when the film industry was gaining traction in L.A., and it’s in an ideal location that’s close to studios. You can easily imagine generations of filmmakers inhabiting the two-bedroom, two-bath, 1,711-square-foot home.
According to public records, Douglas bought the house in 2006 for $1.28 million. She was no doubt charmed by the original crown molding, tiled fireplace, and hardwood floors.
The kitchen still has some original built-in shelving and cabinetry and an antique Wedgewood stove, which still works. But the space has been opened up, and now features a Carrara marble island and counters and other new appliances.
Bonus rooms include a library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, and an enclosed sunroom/office, which could also be used as an art studio.
“This house is amazing, with lots of highlights to mention,” says listing agent Mica Rabineau of Nourmand & Associates, Beverly Hills. “The home is light-filled, with windows throughout,” so owners can fully enjoy the California sunshine.
Douglas, 52, is the granddaughter of Melvyn Douglas and known for her roles in films such as “Good Fellas,” “Cape Fear,” and “Ghost World.” She has also guest-starred in TV series, including “Seinfeld,” “Frasier,” and “Six Feet Under.”
