Tik Tok meme queen turned bonafide pop music superstar Doja Cat didn’t emerge a winner at this year’s Grammys, but the proudly eccentric L.A. native (“Say So,” “Like That,” “Mooo!”) did score a rakishly attractive new house in which to display — if all goes according to plan — many awards to come. The $2.2 million midcentury is stashed away high in the mountains above Beverly Hills, in a leafy hamlet that’s an easy walk to the hiking trails of local canyons.
Built in 1960 but since renovated multiple times, the multilevel structure sits privately behind a reasonably long driveway and a tall canopy of elm and palm trees that give the place a snug, treehouse-esque vibe. There are three or potentially four bedrooms and two bathrooms in about 2,400 square feet of living space, per the listing, while the hillside lot inself spans .19-acres of sloped land.
Out front, the garage door is accented by an unusual wood appliqué for visual spice, while a long concrete staircase leads up to the main level and front door. Inside, the home’s public spaces are confined to one massive great room, which goes for a monolithic all-white look. Floor-to-ceiling windows and a dual-sided fireplace allow in light and heat, while the adjoining skylit kitchen is decidedly no-nonsense with its grey-and-white everything, including a curved island with a vaguely streamline moderne-inspired look.
Also on the ground floor are two guest bedrooms, both of which share a single full bath. Downstairs is a full basement attached to the aforementioned garage, complete with two large storage room and a bonus room that could be a fourth bedroom or a wee private gym, office, or music studio.
