Hey y’all, the Los Angeles real estate market has been busier than a weatherman lately! The latest to throw her hat into the property ring is actress Brianne Howey — probably best known for her portrayal of free-spirited Southern Belle Georgia Miller on the Netflix series “Ginny & Georgia” — who just plunked down $5.7 million for a snazzy homestead over in a prime pocket of Brentwood.
Records show Howey and her lawyer husband Matt Ziering, who are currently expecting their first child together, paid $405,000 over the asking price for their newly acquired property. Built in the late 1940s, but renovated and expanded through the years, the creamy stucco and terracotta-roof structure rests on a petite parcel spanning less than a quarter-acre, and is fronted by an attached two-car garage.
Inside, five bedrooms and a matching number of baths are spread across a little more than 4,300 square feet of two-level living space, which is highlighted by a formal living room boasting a fireplace and built-in window seating. A formal dining room connects to the galley-style kitchen, which comes complete with Caesarstone countertops, newer stainless appliances and a breakfast nook.
In addition to a fireside family room with built-in shelving, the spacious great room contains a game room equipped with a wet bar and pair of fireplaces. French doors spill out to an inviting backyard that’s ideal for al fresco lounging and entertaining with a brick-clad terrace, pergola-covered patio warmed by wall-mounted heaters, and pool and spa flanked by a grassy lawn.
As for the sleeping quarters, two bedrooms with baths can be found on the main level; and three additional en-suite bedrooms upstairs include a master retreat adorned with a sitting area bolstered by a three-sided fireplace, French doors opening to a patio and two walk-in closets. A recently remodeled marble bath sports dual vanities, a soaking tub and large glass-encased shower.
A Los Angeles native, the 33-year-old actress made her TV debut in 2010 in The CW’s “90201” while she was still studying theater at New York University, and went on to snag a part in “Twisted Tales.” Howey landed her first major film role in 2014, starring alongside Jason Bateman and Jason Sudeikis in “Horrible Bosses 2,” and she’s also appeared in TV shows such as “The Exorcist,” “The Passage” and “I’m Dying Up Here.”
