Emmy-winning actress Tatiana Maslany — who has the lead role in Marvel’s upcoming “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” TV series, but is probably best known for playing multiple characters in the sci-fi thriller “Orphan Black,” and also starred in the “Perry Mason” remake — has just doled out $2.1 million for a stylish ranch-style home in Los Angeles, tucked away in San Fernando Valley’s northeastern and equestrian-friendly neighborhood of Shadow Hills.
After it popped up for sale with a nearly $1.4 million ask this past February, records indicate the Canadian actress, 36, won the place in a fierce bidding war — paying more than $700,000 over asking.
Described in the listing as a “little slice of paradise,” the 1940s house weighs in at just over 1,800 square feet, and includes four bedrooms and two baths. Recently updated by its previous designer owners, the single-story residence boasts gorgeous interiors accented throughout with wood-beam ceilings, blonde hardwood floors and modern amenities.
Brick walls, an iron gate and two-car garage front the wood-clad structure, which is highlighted by an expansive courtyard with a seating area. Once inside, a spacious light-filled living room is adorned with vintage light fixtures, built-in shelves and a brick wood-burning fireplace that’s been painted white, and an updated kitchen is outfitted with jade-hued cabinetry, butcher block countertops, top-tier stainless appliances and a cozy breakfast nook hosting a built-in banquette.
Four bedrooms can be found in separate wings of the home, including a primary suite sporting a bath equipped with a tub/shower combo, plus a wood-paneled guest bedroom with direct access to a strikingly black-tiled bath. Outdoors, the woodsy grounds span a little over a quarter of an acre, and contain a pool flanked by a sundeck, wet bar and a petite detached structure that’s currently being used as a private office.
Elsewhere on the property is a grassy lawn abutting a brick terrace that’s ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining, along with steps leading up to a cactus garden and secluded lounge spot overlooking picturesque views of the Verdugo Mountains.
