Tobey Maguire Nabs Santa Monica Micro-Compound (EXCLUSIVE)

Three well-placed snitches, including venerable informant Lucy Spillerguts, swear that poker fanatic actor and up-and-comer producer Tobey Maguire and his wife, jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer, have surreptitiously, through a seemingly inscrutable corporate concern, plunked down nearly $2.68 million for an artsy micro-compound on a tree-lined block in a relatively unassuming but decidedly high-cost Santa Monica neighborhood.

The main residence, a reimagined 1920’s Spanish bungalow with a minimalist-minded interior, measures in at around 2,400 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The ceiling was raised to 22 feet in the combination living/dining room that overlooks a walled and bamboo-shielded courtyard, while a compact but well-equipped kitchen opens to a roomy family room with French doors that themselves open to a loggia than runs the full width of the house. At least two upper-level bedrooms have soaring, barrel-vaulted ceilings and open through French doors to a vine-draped sleeping porch that overlooks a drought-conscious xeriscaped backyard. At the rear of the property, a two-story, warehouse-style structure of about 1,200 square feet is suitable for use as a guesthouse, home office or, as is more apropos, perhaps, a jewelry design studio.

The Meyer-Maguires — he made his name and a serious fortune as Spider-Man in the early- to mid-2000s and her father is high-powered NBCUniversal vice chairman Ron Meyer — continue to own an undeveloped residential parcel on a topnotch Brentwood street that they picked up in 2008 for a whopping $10 million. And last year, the couple paid Ricki Lake $8.45 million for a sprawling Brentwood residence just across the street and a few doors down from the above-mentioned vacant lot, a house that was previously owned by Courteney Cox, and which they lucratively flipped in April, after just over a year of ownership, for $10.4 million to a tech mogul-turned-nutrition-bar tycoon.
