‘When We Rise’ Actor Charlie Carver Picks Up Itty-Bitty Starter Cottage in L.A.’s Silver Lake (EXCLUSIVE)

BUYER: Charlie Carver
LOCATION: Los Angeles CA
PRICE: $799,000
SIZE: 755 square feet, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: A covert digital communiqué from veteran celebrity real estate snitch Lucy Spillerguts first informed us and property records do indeed confirm that up-an-coming actor Charlie Carver, best known for his role as Porter Scavo on “Desperate Housewives” and more recently seen in Dustin Lance Black’s currently airing and critically acclaimed mini-series “When We Rise,” shelled out $799,000 for an itty-bitty, architect renovated starter cottage in Los Angeles’s hipster thronged Silver Lake community.

Listing details date the smartly re-done residence to the early 1900s and show the cottage measures in at a picayune, apartment-sized 755-square-feet with just one bedroom and one bathroom plus a flexible-use loft area. A glass door with vibrant orange painted wood trim efficiently if gracelessly opens directly into the living room that features a vaulted ceiling, milk chocolate colored wood floors that run throughout the house, a minimal-minded mantel-free fireplace set between towering bookcases, and a built-in storage cabinet that cleverly incorporates cantilevered stairs to the loft. The unexpectedly spacious and generously windowed eat-in kitchen provides simple white Shaker-style lower cabinets, open upper shelves for dishware storage and display, butcher block counter tops, and a pristinely restored vintage range. The lone bedroom is indisputably compact but does offers several closets; the bathroom has crisp if ordinary white ceramic tiles in the bath/shower area; and the bi-level loft that overlooks the living room provides extra space for storage, lounging, and/or overnight guests.

The small house is privately tucked away off of a narrow alley and set up into the corner of a ruggedly maintained and slightly sloped .12-acre parcel with, according to marketing materials, drought tolerant native landscaping, reclaimed brick terraces, raised planting beds for growing vegetables, and numerous fig and citrus trees.

    Wasn’t he only for a few minutes in the first episode of “When we Rise”? Seems a bit pathetic to list that and point out that it was critically acclaimed when he certainly is much more known for other projects where he had much more screentime. Of course those weren’t critically acclaimed..

    Very clean, cute and cozy…I love tiny homes. Congratulations, Charlie!
