On top of being a successful actress with numerous feathers in her proverbial professional cap, Anna Kendrick also has amassed a notable real estate portfolio on the side. The “Pitch Perfect” star owns several homes in the Los Angeles area, with her main residence being a lavish spread she bought from Muse drummer Dominic Howard about two years ago.
Now the 37-year-old thespian — who’s also appeared in “Twilight,” “Up in the Air,” “Scott Pilgrim vs. the World” and “A Simple Favor,” among many other films — is taking on the new role of landlord, having hoisted her more modest Beachwood Canyon house onto the rental market for $12,950 per month.
Purchased by Kendrick for just $1 million about 11 years ago, the circa-1930s property has been fully renovated since, and rests on a woodsy parcel sited amid a secluded cul-de-sac. Up for grabs within the gray two-story stucco structure are three bedrooms and four baths in a little more than 2,700 square feet of modernized living space boasting oak floors, high ceilings, built-ins and loads of natural light.
Though the listing notes the place is being offered without furnishings, highlights on the open-concept main level include a spacious living room displaying a floor-to-ceiling stacked-stone fireplace and two sets of glassy French doors spilling out to a covered deck warmed by yet another fireplace. A dining area connects to the kitchen, which comes with an eat-in island, marble countertops and stainless appliances; and elsewhere are two ensuite bedrooms.
A curving wood staircase heads to the top floor, where a charcoal-hued master retreat is showcased by a separate sitting room and walk-in closet, as well as a spa-like bath equipped with a floating vanity, soaking tub and large glass-encased shower. Outdoors, the grassy and fenced backyard hosts an al fresco lounging and dining patio, and an oversized driveway tucked off to the side empties out at a two-car garage.
In addition to the aforementioned properties, Kendrick — who now can be seen in the thriller “Alice, Darling,” streaming on Amazon Prime Video — also owns another currently vacant house on the same street as this rental offering.
The listing is held by Jack Graniti and Marc Burrows of Pacifica West Properties.
