New Digs for ‘New Girl’ Zooey Deschanel

Once again, both Yolanda Yakketyyak and Lucy Spillerguts swore to this property gossip that quirky and currently with-child singer and sitcom star Zooey Deschanel (“New Girl”) and her fiancee/baby daddy, up-and-coming producer Jacob Pechenik, surreptitiously and via trust coughed up a smidge more than $4.5 million for a brand spanking new quasi-Cape Cod/Colonial-style residence in the low-key but high-cost community of Manhattan Beach.

Listing details we cajoled out of the digital ether show the never-lived-in two-story residence, on a irregularly shaped and large-for-the-community 0.2-acre parcel, has plenty of room for the new baby, with six bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms in 5,166 square feet. There are formal living and dining rooms — the former with a gas fireplace — and a well-equipped center island kitchen that opens to a roomy dining area with wet bar and built-in wine storage. It’s two steps down from the kitchen to a spacious family room with gas fireplace and French doors that open to a stone-paved patio and a flat and newly sodded backyard. High-tech features include a central vacuum system, camera-enabled security, energy-saving lighting program and a multizone heating and cooling system.

Deschanel, the Emmy-nominated daughter of five-time Oscar-nominated cinematographer Caleb Deschanel (“The Natural,” “The Passion of the Christ”), continues to own an updated 1930s cottage in the Hollywood Hills that she quietly snapped up in 2009 for $1.65 million from two-time Oscar nominee Mark Ruffalo and — in six degrees of celebrity real estate separation — our research reveals she previously co-owned a picturesque 1920s Spanish-style duplex building near Hancock Park with her older sister, “Bones” star and producer Emily Deschanel, purchased (via trust) in 2011 for not quite $1.4 million by David Fincher and Cean Chaffin.
