Married actors Kathryn Hahn and Ethan Sandler upgraded their residential circumstances, real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak whispered, with the $2.55 million purchase of a stylishly updated, 1920s Mediterranean villa in the Los Feliz area of Los Angeles. The not-quite-4,100-square-foot residence, discreetly secreted behind a tall hedge on a 0.2-acre corner lot, has four bedrooms and four baths.
A grand, double-height foyer with snazzy, dark-stained, chevron-patterned hardwood floors steps down to a graciously proportioned living room with oversized windows on three walls that flood the room with natural light. The formal dining room connects through to a sleek and expensively outfitted all-white kitchen with a double-wide center island and an adjoining breakfast area set into a rounded bay that overlooks the backyard.
An en suite bedroom on the main floor is perfect for guests or a live-in maid. Two more guest/family bedrooms on the second floor share a vintage-tiled hall bathroom, and the oversized master suite includes what listing details describe as “dual sleep chambers,” along with a walk-in closet and a remodeled bathroom with a marble-topped, two-sink vanity, jetted tub, and a separate glass-enclosed steam shower. Outdoor recreation and leisure amenities include terra-cotta-tile terraces, a built-in grilling station, a petite swimming pool, a circular spa, and, along the side of the house, in the shade of a couple of mature trees, a bocce court.
Hahn — co-star of the comedy “Bad Moms” who also plays a tough but sensitive rabbi on the Amazon series “Transparent” — and her actor/producer husband (who occasionally pops up on “Transparent” and is listed as a co-executive producer on the sitcom “New Girl”) previously owned a substantially smaller 1920s Mediterranean in nearby Silver Lake that they bought in late 2004 for $825,000. They sold that earlier this year for a bit more than $1.6 million, well above its not-quite-$1.4-million asking price.
