Aubrey Plaza has set her views on a new residence following the impending sale of her longtime Hollywood Hills residence. According to public records, the eccentric, Delaware-born actress, comedian, and producer — best known for her work on “Parks and Recreation” and “Legion,” as well as an upcoming role in season two of HBO’s dark comedy “The White Lotus” — recently spent $4.7 mιllιon on a “classic Spanish Grand Dame” that is only a few blocks away from her former residence.
Even while both homes, owned by the 38-year-old and her husband, screenwriter/director Jeff Baena, were built in the 1920s and have Spanish vernacular architecture, the new dwellings are larger and more luxurious, making them ideal for sharing. Four bedrooms and six bathrooms are located in the totally renovated living space of little under 4,000 square feet, which is enhanced by grandiose rooms with oak flooring, high ceilings, arched doors, wood-sash windows, and seamless indoor-outdoor habitats.
The cream-colored, terracotta-roofed building is concealed behind walls and gates on a double lot encompassing more than a quarter acre, just minutes from Griffith Park. It has three stories and a beautiful courtyard lined with century-old trees to welcome guests. A tiled entryway with a portico-topped front door leads to a sun-filled living room with a brick fireplace, whitewashed wood-beam ceiling, and a picture window overlooking the surrounding vegetation.
Additionally notable features on the main level include a formal dining room with French doors leading to a garden, a gourmet kitchen with all-white cabinetry, marble countertops, an apron sink, an eat-in island, high-end stainless appliances, dual walk-in pantries, and access to an outdoor dining patio with a view of a koi pond. There are also two bathrooms decorated in a classic manner, a cozy den, and an office/study with bookcases and carved beam ceilings.
A magnificent master retreat with two walk-in closets, a bathroom with a clawfoot tub and separate shower, and a dramatic magnesite staircase with the original ironwork are located on the second floor. Three additional en-suite bedrooms are located on this floor, including one that, according to the advertisement, could be used as a cinema room and another with a solarium and veranda.
The lower floor, which connects to an attached two-car garage, has a climate-controlled wine room and a ton of storage space. A huge pool, a cabana with a steam shower, and a lush lawn are all featured in the private backyard.
