Having picked up another, more expensive house last year, “NCIS” star Barrett Foa has unsurprisingly put his former home, an appealingly unconventional architectural in the fashionable heart of L.A.’s ultra-hip Silver Lake neighborhood, up for sale at a whisper under $1.7 million.
Built in 2016 and acquired by Foa at that time for not quite $1.4 million, the three-story abode was decorated for the accomplished stage and screen actor in a comfortable, organic-modern manner by designer Rosa Beltran. Listings held by Sherri Rogers and Anthony Stellini of Compass show the just shy of 2,100-square-foot home has two bedrooms and three bathrooms.
Tucked in to a tiny porch next to an open carport, the eye-catching scarlet front door opens to a compact foyer dominated by a custom-cut tree-stump repurposed as an entry table and, surprisingly, a spacious dining room with built-in banquette seating. Just off the dining room, the upscale kitchen is a somber, sophisticated affair with marbled countertops, lustrous gray and white cabinets and shimmery dove-gray tile backsplashes.
Bedrooms are privately perched on the upper floor; the main suite offers a fitted walk-in closet, private terrace and marble-accented bathroom wrapped in shiny azure tiles. The living room sits on the lower level with a polished concrete floor and full-height glass sliders that peel open to a charming, hedge-encircled courtyard garden with fire pit and water feature.
Foa’s new digs, a stylishly redone 1950s midcentury ranch of almost 2,000 square feet, sits high above historic Beachwood Canyon with stunning canyon-framed views over the city and cost him close to $2.1 million.
