Emma and Andrew Shack Up in Beverly Hills

BUYERS: Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield
LOCATION: Beverly Hills, CA
PRICE: $2,500,000
SIZE: 3,862 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Thank to the always informative Lucy Spillerguts, young and faux ginger-tressed actress Emma Stone and her slender, half-English man-beau/Spiderman co-star Andrew Garfield (The Social Network, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus) recently dropped $2,500,000 on a Beverly Hills, CA residence once owned by deceased English actor Dudley Moore.*

Miss Stone, a teen aged thespian now in her mid-20s, got her big Showbiz break in 2007 when Judd Apatow suggested she dye her blond hair red for the high-grossing comedy movie Superbad.** Since then Miss Stone has landed a lot of plum roles in star making movies like the Spiderman franchise, Crazy, Stupid, Love and The Help. The increasingly in-demand actress has almost half a dozen more potentially high-profile projects lined up including another Spidy movie with her live-in boyfriend, Gangster Squad with the idiosyncratically bewitching Ryan Gosling and Movie 43, the upcoming cameo driven rom-com in which half of Tinseltown shows up including Gerard Butler, Hugh Jackman, Halle Berry, Naomi Watts, Richard Gere and Uma Thurman just to name a few. Make no mistake, chickens, this wholesome-seeming starlet has arrived and Your Mama expects she will quickly earn herself a proper Hollywood fortune, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and a few more industry accolades and statuettes to add to the Teen Choice, Screen Actors Guild, Satellite and People’s Choice awards she already has.

The 1.5 story, flagstone-faced traditional/ranch residence, located on a wee, leafy lane up in twisty and sometimes traffic-choked Coldwater Canyon, sits low and private behind electronic driveway gates and a thick, skin-shredding bougainvillea hedge. Listing information we enticed up out of the interweb shows there are a total of four bedrooms and .5 bathrooms in 3,862 square feet, according to listing information and the L.A. County Tax Man.
Dark, high gloss wood floors in the double-wide entrance hall continue into the voluminous, step-down living room with vaulted wood ceiling, partially paneled walls washed with crisp white paint, a massive white brick fireplace, clerestory windows, and a full wall of French doors that open to a concrete and red brick courtyard terrace at the back of the house. Double glass doors in the living room open to a temperature controlled walk-in wine closet with custom-built, floor-to-ceiling bottle racks.

The adjoining formal dining room also has a bank of French doors that connect to the backyard entertainment spaces and also opens over a high serving counter to a galley-style kitchen finished with wood beams on the ceiling, white tile on the counter tops and a wide window over the vintage—or vintage-style—stainless steel sink and marvelous, built-in drainboard. Just off the kitchen there’s a spacious laundry room with slop sink, a convenient pantry space and a sunny breakfast room with raised fireplace.

One of the four bedrooms has a private pooper and might be used as a guest bedroom or domestic quarters and the other two guest/family bedrooms share a Jack-and-Jill bathroom. The master suite offers a third, marble-faced fireplace and backyard access through more French doors. The renovated master bathroom has sepia-colored stone tile floors, an extra-long double sink vanity, an over-sized soaking tub with garden view and a separate glass-enclosed shower plenty big enough for two.

An L-shaped, flexi-use space tucked up into the attic on the second floor is fully finished with dark wood floors, an exposed post and beam ceiling and a long row of six-pane windows with tree top views.

Red brick terracing surrounds the heated, rectangular swimming pool—as does one of the most clunky and more hideous examples of a child safety barrier we’ve ever seen—and a slightly raised deck at one end is partially covered by a sun-bleached pavilion used by the non-celeb sellers as an outdoor dining space.

Miss Stone and Mister Garfield have been reported in the interweb to also share an apartment in New York City but Your Mama knows about as much about that as we know about the mathematical calculations required to understand the motions in the ocean.

*Property records don’t make at all clear if this house was purchased by Miss Stone separately or with Mister Garfield. For the sake of our gossipy discussion, let’s just say she bought it and that Mister Garfield—as he alluded recently on the Ellen—lives there with her.

**Don’t belive Superbad was an honest to goodness hit? Tell that to the relatively low $20 million budget and the $169+ million in global revenues.
