Back in March, Sarah Silverman hoisted her somewhat idiosyncratic West Hollywood condo of 15 years onto the open market. Though the decoratively extroverted pad remains available with an unchanged $1.8 million pricetag, that hasn’t stopped Silverman from upgrading her L.A. real estate situation in a big way. Records reveal the Emmy-winning actress and stand-up comic recently shelled out $3.5 million for a lush property in the Los Feliz neighborhood.
Since the house is all-new — built in 2020 — and was never publicly available for sale, photographs and details remain scant. But dated renderings show that the walled and gated complex includes a boxy, ultra-contemporary house with two full floors and four bedrooms, all of them with ensuite bathrooms.
Situated in a particularly celeb-dense part of Los Feliz, where some of Silverman’s nearest neighbors include Scarlett Johansson, Kate Mara, and Lykke Li, the house hunkers atop a knoll well above the street. For privacy and serenity, the .21-acre lot is ringed by mature trees and hedges, and there’s an extensive security system.
Although it’s not certain that the new house adheres exactly to these specs, those renderings reveal the new structure offers an attached two-car garage connected to an open-plan main living area with living and dining spaces, plus an open kitchen with high-end appliances. Foldaway glass doors spill out to an oversized deck with ample space for outdoor entertaining; out there are also a BBQ, firepit, and a rectangular pool.
Also on the ground level are a powder room, plus a small ensuite bedroom probably best-suited for guests or as a gym. Upstairs are three larger bedrooms, plus a private office; the master suite offers a sitting area, marble-slathered bath, and a bedroom-sized closet. Wheat-colored hardwood floors run throughout the house.
Silverman, whose partner is former “Today Show” showrunner Rory Albanese, is set to star in the upcoming psychological thriller “Viral” with Blair Underwood. The 50-year-old New Hampshire native, who’s become known in recent years for her left-wing politics and occasionally controversial roasts of celebrities, began her career on “Saturday Night Live” in the early ’90s before landing her own eponymous Comedy Central show in 2007.
