They already own a London pied-à-terre and stunning 16th century farmhouse tucked away in the English countryside — where they quarantined during the Covid-19 pandemic — but Carey Mulligan, 37, and her longtime husband Marcus Mumford, 35, have added to their property portfolio with the $6.5 million purchase of a stateside home in the Hollywood Hills, high above the Sunset Strip.
Records show that Mulligan and Mumford — she an Oscar-nominated British actress best known for her work in “An Education” and “Promising Young Woman,” and he the California-born, English-raised lead singer of Grammy-winning folk band Mumford & Sons — got a slight $25,000 discount on the Spanish-style digs, which were built way back in the late 1920s and have since been extensively renovated with a mix of period details and modern amenities.
Nestled on a double parcel of land spanning less than a quarter-acre, the creamy stucco and red terracotta-roof structure features four bedrooms and six baths spread across nearly 5,000 square feet of living space on three levels. Highlights include a living room adorned with a fireplace and family room with French doors spilling out to a tiled patio, plus a formal dining room that connects to a sleekly designed kitchen outfitted with custom cabinetry imported from London, an eat-in island, and high-end Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances.
Standing out upstairs is a sumptuous master retreat sporting a Juliet balcony and walk-in closet, as well as a luxe bath equipped with a large soaking tub and separate shower. Elsewhere is a movie theater and production studio; and out back, the resort-like grounds are fully hedged, and host a pool flanked by an elevated lounge area with fire-pit and covered al fresco dining area with its own kitchenette. Per the listing, there’s also a two-car garage and plenty of parking for guests.
