After seven years, it’s time for a real estate upgrade for entertainment industry phenom Chloë Grace Moretz. A showbiz veteran at 26 — she began acting as a child and has already tallied up more than 70 film and television credits — Moretz has packed up her Range Rover and put her multimillion-dollar starter home in the hills above downtown Studio City on the market at almost $6 million.
The titular character in the 2018 drama “Greta,” the voice of Wednesday Addams in the animated “Addams Family” films, and currently starring in the Amazon sci-fi series “The Peripheral,” Moretz is all set to turn a pretty penny on the secluded property she picked up in early 2016 — when she was just 19! — for a very grown up $3.4 million.
Tucked down a leafy and curvaceous private cul-de-sac, near the convenient apex of the Laurel Canyon overpass that connects Hollywood and Studio City, the late ‘90s home sits behind a high wall and security gates. With a total of 6,715 square feet, the three-story, buff-colored stucco structure is capped by a classic red-tile roof and has just enough wrought-iron accents inside and out to qualify it as a quintessentially southern California-style pan-Mediterranean-inspired home.
There are five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms dispersed across the 5,600-ish-square-foot two-story main house that has been cleared of most personal belongings and staged for the selling process. Beyond the courtyard entry, there’s a double-height living room with fireplace, a dining room, and a recently redone eat-in kitchen with premium quality appliances. Elsewhere, an en-suite guest bedroom works well as a home office, while a petite home theater has comfy tiered seating for six.
Along with a trio of bedrooms, a couple of bathrooms and a rec room, the upper floor’s primary suite offers two walk-in closets, a fireplace, and a balcony outside a private sitting area. Well suited for long-term guests, family members or live-in staff, the main house sits atop an 1,100-square-foot, studio-style guesthouse that includes a high-end kitchen, private bath and walk-in closet.
Ringed by mature trees that provide excellent privacy, the slightly more than half-acre hillside parcel allows for numerous and expansive stone-paved patios along with a dark-bottom pool with spillover spa, a built-in grill and an outdoor fireplace. A lushly grassed lower terrace is all ready for croquet, at-home picnics or a children’s play structure.
A quick scan of tax records reveals other residents of Moretz’s micro-neighborhood include Christensen Hayden’s brother Tove Christensen and German film producer Michael Ohoven and his beauty queen/actress wife Joyce Giraud.
