Looks like Kristen Wiig has officially traded one historic Pasadena abode for another.
The veteran actress, comedian, screenwriter and producer — who’s set to star opposite Carol Burnett in the upcoming Apple-scripted comedy series “Mrs. American Pie” — has bought a striking Georgian-style estate that’s only a few blocks from her former Pasadena home — Case Study House #10 — which she recently sold to fellow actress Lily Collins.
Wiig paid $4.9 million for her new place, which was sold by Emmy-nominated producers Emre Sahin and Sarah Wetherbee of Red Arrow Studio’s Karga Seven Pictures (“Bosch,” “Love is Blind,” “Married at First Sight,” “Say Yes to the Dress”).
Originally built in 1930, but given a complete contemporary overhaul by the previous owners in collaboration with architect Kevin Oreck and interior designer Deborah Rhein, Wiig’s property lies on a picturesque street in a sought-after neighborhood pocket, where nearby neighbors include Meryl Streep, Grimes and Oscar De La Hoya.
Securely protected by gates and cameras, the two-story red brick structure is accented by black-shuttered widows and a bright green front door. Once inside, three bedrooms and four baths are filtered across nearly 4,000 square feet of open-plan living space adorned throughout with hardwood floors, designer light fixtures, and steel-framed windows and doors.
Natural light bathes the interiors via an automated skylight, and French doors spill out to an al fresco patio ideal for dining and entertaining. Other highlights include a formal living room sporting a tiled fireplace and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, as well as a formal dining room.
A breezeway leads to an updated gourmet kitchen outfitted with a pricey La Cornue range topped by a custom hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, an eat-in marble island and sunny breakfast nook; and an upstairs master suite rests beneath a vaulted wood ceiling, and displays a duo of windowed seating alcoves, fireplace, balcony, and vintage-style bath equipped with a clawfoot soaking tub and separate shower.
In addition to the aforementioned patio, the private and grassy grounds also host a pool with a Baja shelf and an adjacent cabana, along with a garage that’s been converted into an art room.
