SELLER: Jake Gyllenhaal
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
SIZE: 2,826 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Property records and other online resources now show that Oscar-nominated actor and budding movie producer Jake Gyllenhaal has sold his house on a famously celebrity-lined road high in the hills above Hollywood for $3,262,500 to an as yet unknown buyer. (The property was listed at $3.5 million)
Property records show the Tinseltown scion and beaver busy movie star purchased the gated and very privately situated 1.92-acre property in July 2005 (via blind trust) for $2.5 million and digital marketing materials peg the late-1940s, single-story ranch house at 2,826-square-feet with two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.
A long drive way sweeps up from the street to a motor court in front of the main house that includes a formal living room with what appears to be white-painted wood floors and a step-down lounge lined with wood-framed glass sliders filled with panoramic views of the San Fernando Valley. A less formal great room/den has a vaulted and sky-lit ceiling, generous built-in bookshelves and an integrated office area and media room.
The cork-floored eat-kitchen, right off the formal living room as far as this boozy-eyed property gossip can tell, has with wood counter tops — let’s just assume they’re walnut or teak or something delicious like that — subway tile back splashes and high-end appliances that include a glass-fronted industrial-inspired fridge/freezer that costs about as much as a well-equipped Hyundai.
There are a variety of terraces and patios that surround the house plus a bulbous, bullet-shaped swimming pool with an adjacent cabana lounge. Other features of note include a detached office and — natch — a high-tech, camera-equipped security system.
Some of the other high-profile peeps in the nearby vicinity include David Hockney, Julianne Hough, Jack Huston and Shannan Click, Justine Bateman, Rebel Wilson and Quentin Tarantino.
