Having packed up and moved east to even more pastoral and much more grand circumstances — a wee bit more on that in a minute — married actors Scott Foley and Marika Dominczyk have sold their longtime home in Hidden Hills, Calif., about a 45-minute drive out of Beverly Hills, for $4.5 million. The sale price is a noticeable chunk less than the not-quite-$5-million asking price, but, more impressively and importantly, well above twice the $2.133 million the “Felicity,” “Scrubs” and “Scandal” alum paid for the slightly shy of 1.5-acre spread about 8.5 years ago.
Because of its conspicuous (and ever increasing) costliness, and plethora of heavy-hitter showbiz residents, the Hidden Hills enclave is referred to by some as the Beverly Hills of the San Fernando Valley. Others more tongue-in-cheekily call the equestrian-oriented neighborhood Kardashianland due to remarkably high number of the Jenner-Kardashian clan who own multimillion-dollar estates along the wide, tree-lined streets.
And, indeed, the Foley-Dominczyk’s now former home is right up next door to a glitzy contemporary farmhouse mansion previously owned by matriarch Kris Jenner — she sold up last year for $15 million, a sizable profit on the $9.925 million she paid not even three years earlier, and moved to an even more expensive home in the neighborhood — and across the street from the sprawling estate and Axel Vervoordt-decorated French Country mansion owned by reality TV/social media titan Kim Kardashian-West and her soon-to-be ex-husband Kanye West. A short list of the many other high-profile homeowners in Hidden Hills include a few more Jenner-Kardashian family members, mononymous rapper Drake, pseudonymous musician The Weeknd, eccentric makeup mogul Jeffree Star and convicted felons Lori Loughlin and Mossimo Giannulli.
