A modestly sized and stylishly staged townhouse condominium in a secured, contemporary complex on the border between Hollywood and West Hollywood, and owned, per property records, by “The Walking Dead” star Steven Yeun, has become available at $895,000. Property records show Yeun and his wife, photographer Joana Pak, purchased the two-story townhouse in the latter days of 2012 for $710,000, and current listing details show there are three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in not quite 1,900 square feet.
Exceptionally glossy, chestnut-toned hardwood floors extend from the entrance hall into the low-ceilinged but otherwise lofty combination living/dining room that features a snazzy brass Sputnik-style chandelier. Glass sliders open to a narrow, stone-tiled terrace privately tucked behind a tall hedge and just roomy enough to accommodate a picnic table and barbecue. Just inside the front door and open to the living/dining room over a raised snack bar, an efficiently arranged, U-shaped kitchen has dark-chocolate-colored cabinets and eggshell-colored solid-surface countertops, shimmering-tile backsplashes, and de rigueur stainless steel appliances.
Upstairs, two guest bedrooms — both with wall-to-wall carpeting, and one with a walk-in closet — share a hall bathroom, while the master bedroom has a fitted walk-in closet of its own along with a sleek en suite bathroom with a soaking tub and a separate tile-lined, glass-enclosed shower.
Good ol’ real estate yenta Yolanda Yakkeyyak swears on her still-functional vintage VHS player that the South Korea-born and Michigan-bred actor, set to co-star next year on the silver screen with Tilda Swinton and Jake Gyllenhaal in the action-adventure film “Okja,” has already upgraded to a freshly renovated $2.3 million single-family contemporary in the casually affluent Los Feliz area that provides four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms in just over 3,300 square feet.
