Mia Michaels Sells Faux-Tudor Cottage for $1.8 Million

Award-winning former “So You Think You Can Dance” judge and choreographer Mia Michaels has sold her 1920s faux-Tudor cottage just below L.A.’s perennially chic and boutique-lined Melrose Avenue for $1,775,000. Contemporary movement-minded Miz Michaels, whose choreographic credits also include the “Rock of Ages” movie and Cirque du Soleil’s extravaganza “Delirium,” picked up the 2,098-square-foot residence in March 2011 for $1.35 million, and tap-danced the entirely overhauled and modestly scaled, if hardly cheap, house on the open market this April, with a $1.849 million pricetag.

A tiny foyer leads to a spacious living room with fireplace and conscientiously restored plaster ceiling details. The formal dining room links to a center island kitchen and adjoining den/family room fitted with a custom built-ins. Listing details show there are three en suite bedrooms — one of which Miz Michaels used as an office and display space for her three Emmy statuettes — plus another half bath for visitors.

A gated driveway runs along the side of the house to a garage near the rear of the diminutive .16-acre property that listing details rather munificently called a “mini-estate.” Beside the garage, there’s a flat patch of grass with room for a pool.
