He may be still best known for his long-running part(s) in the “AHS” franchise and Netflix’s “Ratched” series, but Finn Wittrock has significantly expanded his portfolio in recent years with starring roles in monster hits like “The Big Short,” “La La Land,” and “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” just to name a few. Those films have helped establish the Massachusetts native, 36, as a commercially viable and very busy actor, with his future Hollywood career looking big and bright.
First things first, though — every hotshot new Tinseltown entrant needs a real estate foothold in the city. Wittrock has now found love in the hipster-chic hills of Silver Lake, on L.A.’s Eastside. Records reveal he and wife Sarah Roberts sealed the deal on a quintessential midcentury modern, and wanted the place badly — they paid nearly $1.8 million, or $361,000 over the asking price.
It’s not difficult to see the attraction. Built in 1957, the classic midcentury bungalow had remained in the same family ever since, and was “lovingly maintained and restored” over the years, per the listing. The open-plan interiors are light and bright, and the property has impressive views of the L.A. River and San Gabriel Mountains from its perch in the hills. There’s also a detached art studio — perfect for the working-from-home creative type — and of course the typical midcentury style, which is roaringly back en vogue. The 1,500-square-foot house has two bedrooms and two baths and a decidedly unconventional floorplan.
