Joel Kinnaman Lists Above Sunset Strip in Los Angeles (EXCLUSIVE)

SELLER: Joel Kinnaman
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $2,795,000
SIZE: 2,542 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: An unimpeachable tattletale sent word via covert communiqué to let us know that winsome Swedish-born actor Joel Kinnaman — star of the TV series “The Killing” and the 2014 reboot of “RoboCop” hoisted his house in the swanky Sunset Plaza area above L.A.’s swish Sunset Strip up for sale at $2.795 million. Avid celebrity real estate watchers may recall Mister Kinnaman, soon to be seen on the star-studded silver screen superhero film “Suicide Squad,” purchased the street-hugging two-story residence not quite two years ago, in July 2014, for $2.245 million and current listing details show the 2,542-square-foot faux-Mediterranean was originally built in the 1970s with three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.

A proper entrance hall makes a left turn through an arched doorway to a combination living/dining area with medium brown oak hardwoods, floor-to-ceiling exposed concrete corner fireplace, and a columned loggia that overlooks the backyard through an exceptionally large single-pane picture window. The kitchen, open to the dining area over a peninsula counter and little changed since Mister Kinnaman acquired the property, has maple Shaker-style cabinetry, slab marble counter tops, and all the customary high-quality stainless steel appliances expected to be found in a $2.8 million house above the Sunset Strip. Two guest/family bedroom on the upper level — one with a fireplace and both with tree-framed city views — share a bathroom with beige tumbled stone tile work, twin pedestal sinks, and a garden tub while the master bedroom has a third fireplace, private balcony with through-the-trees view, and attached bathroom with two-sink vanity and another garden tub next to a huge window. The compact but desirably flat backyard has a stone terrace around a plunge-sized swimming pool, a wee patch of grass, and tree-framed city views that, on a clear day, extend all the way to the Pacific Ocean.

It’s not such a surprise Mister Kinnaman wants to unload his Sunset Strip house since he’s already forked over $3.749 million for a larger and significantly more modern home across town in the supremely trendy and increasingly expensive if still somewhat gritty beach community of Venice.

The property is represented by Justin Alexander and Pardee Properties.
