A few months ago, Kumail Nanjiani and Emily Gordon were reported to be house-hunting in the trendy Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles. We don’t know if the actor, comedian and screenwriter — probably best known for his role as Dinesh in the HBO comedy series “Silicon Valley” — and his longtime writer/podcaster wife ever pulled the plug and settled into new digs. But they did just hoist their Spanish-style mini-compound in Los Feliz onto the rental market for $9,500 per month.
Purchased by the Hollywood couple for just over $1.1 million more than eight years ago, back in spring 2014, the 1920s-era property has since been given a complete makeover by Karen Vidal and Beverly Klein of Vidal Design Collaborative, complete with all-new paint, wallpaper, light fixtures and more. Up for grabs is a main house featuring two bedrooms and three baths in 1,400 square feet of single-level living space, plus a detached one-bedroom guesthouse with its own kitchenette and bath.
Fully hidden away from prying eyes, on a gated and hedge-lined parcel spanning less than a quarter-acre of land, the white stucco and terracotta-roof structure is being offered sans furnishings. But highlights include a jade-hued living room displaying a large picture window trimmed in wood, along with a dining room that connects to an eat-in kitchen decked out with a skylight, custom cabinetry, a wine refrigerator and pricey Bertazonni range.
A separate office space clad in black-and-white wallpaper boasts a built-in desk and a powder room is adorned with a stained-glass window, while the master suite is showcased by a spa-inspired bath equipped with dual vanities and a steam shower; and outdoors, the fenced backyard includes a saltwater pool, fire-pit, and kitchen and barbecue setup ideal for al fresco entertaining.
Rounding it all out: an enclosed courtyard out front, as well as an access-controlled driveway that can accommodate parking for up to four cars. The listing is held by Santos Aleman of Santos Aleman Real Estate.
