Zachary Quinto Lists L.A. Pad

SELLER: Zachary Quinto
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $1,165,000
SIZE: 1,505 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: The tireless, real estate-obsessed kids at Curbed were the first to reveal that Zachary Quinto, nominated for an Emmy last year for “American Horror Story,” hoisted his modern-minded 1940s bungalow between L.A.’s Silver Lake and Los Feliz areas on the market for $1,165,000.

Property records show the out of the closet actor, who spends a great deal of time in New York where he made his Broadway debut last fall (2013) to mostly swimming reviews in a revival of Tennessee Williams’ “The Glass Menagerie,” acquired the modestly sized if hardly cheap house at the base of the Franklin Hills ‘hood amid his four season run as a serial killer on “Heroes” in June 2008 for $865,000. (True story: Your Mama and The Dr. Cooter went for a look-see at this house when we moved from New York City to Los Angeles but opted instead for a less modern cottage in the Hollywood Hills. Anyhoo…)

Listing details put the gated, low-slung and pleasantly boxy abode at 1,505 square feet with three bedrooms plus a den and two renovated bathrooms. There are easy-maintenance and stylishly appropriate charcoal tiles on the floor in the combination living and dining room along with three sets of over-sized floor-to-ceiling windows. The floors switch to polished concrete in the double-wide galley style kitchen that’s fitted with the same simple, unadorned cabinetry, dove gray solid-surface counter tops and medium-grade stainless steel appliances there when we peeped the property back in 2008. A built-in breakfast banquette is backed by an enormous window and wood-framed glass doors open the kitchen to the sun-dappled, “Sunset” magazine worthy backyard with tree-shaded dining area, minimalist-minded water feature, concrete planters and a lounging deck with an ever-so de rigueur built-in fire pit.

Your Mama hasn’t an iota what Mister Quinto’s real estate future holds but iffin we were the betting type — and we’re not — we’d wager both our long-bodied bitches, Linda and Beverly, he plans to settle more permanently in The Big Apple and/or he’ll gravitate to something more expensive and celebrified in Tinseltown. But what do we know, right?
