Ali Larter and Hayes MacArthur List Los Angeles Contemporary (EXCLUSIVE)

SELLERS: Ali Larter and Hayes MacArthur
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $4.295 million
SIZE: (approx.) 5,500 square, 4 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: An early morning covert communiqué from longtime celebrity real estate aide-de-camp Lucy Spillerguts informed this property gossip that teen fashion model-turned-actress Ali Larter put her Los Angeles home up for sale at $4.295 million. Property records indicate the “Heroes” and “Resident Evil” horror franchise star and her actor husband, Hayes MacArthur, currently a series regular on the police procedural parody “Angie Tribeca,” acquired the boxy triple-story contemporary in June 2009 for $2.925 million, and current listing details show the approximately 5,500-square-foot residence, tucked into a sweeping curve on a mostly wooded half-acre parcel in the Nichols Canyon area and all but completely hidden behind a towering hedge, has four bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.

Loft-like open plan living spaces on the middle level have pale, glossy and magnificently extra-wide oak floor boards and include an airy corner living room with over-sized windows placed on either side of a raised hearth fireplace faced in probably pricey but, let’s be honest, butter beans, utterly yawn-worthy beige stone. On the room’s rear wall, floor-to-ceiling dark chocolate bookshelves conveniently incorporate a well-stocked bar area with itty-bitty beverage fridge. In the spacious dining space, the Larter-MacArthurs, or perhaps their team of professional decorators, courageously surrounded the appetizingly long and decoratively fashionable, live edge dining table with an unorthodox mélange of cozy-looking sheepskin-lined Arne Jacobson-designed Egg Chairs, an ever-so-slightly fetishistic tufted black leather bench, and a Danish modern trio of teak armchairs with seats and backs upholstered in some sort of (hopefully faux) crocodile-like reptile skin. A chunky work island with integrated snack bar divides the dining area from the austerely monochromatic kitchen outfitted with hardware-free white lacquered cabinetry, white marble countertops, white glass backsplashes, and high-grade white appliances. Four sets of glass sliders open the living and dining areas to a slender terrace that runs the full width of the house with backyard and canyon overlook.

An eye-catching if somewhat vertiginous glass-railed and open-tread staircase ascends to the upper most floor, where two en suite guest/family bedrooms are joined by a master suite that encompasses a small private balcony and an enviably proportioned walk-in closet. Frosted glass panels on either side of a double-sided fireplace swing open to an entirely white marble bathroom with garden tub and separate, glass-enclosed steam shower. A fourth bedroom plus a well-equipped gym and a family room are located on the lowest level that opens out to a shaded veranda and that flat and grassy backyard where a geometrically simple rectangular swimming pool and inset spa ever so slightly cantilevers over the sylvan hillside with framed canyon views.
