Kathryn Hahn and Ethan Sandler have sold their eclectically stylish Los Angeles home for a wee bit more than $1.6 million, on an asking price slightly less than $1.4 million. The co-star of the film “Bad Moms,” who also deftly portrays a complicated but levelheaded rabbi on the groundbreaking 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,” purchased the property in late 2004 for $825,000. Perched on an up-sloped parcel in the hills of the trendy and increasingly pricey Silver Lake neighborhood, the modestly sized 1927 Mediterranean has two bedrooms and two bathrooms in just under 2,000 square feet.
The two-story house sits atop a two-car garage, so it’s a glutes-working climb from the street to the front door and petite foyer that connects through to an airy and unexpectedly spacious living room with gleaming white floors, a vintage-tiled fireplace, arched windows with over-the-rooftops open views, and a fantastically high, barrel-vaulted ceiling. Just off the living room, a small den has eye-popping seismograph-patterned wallpaper and an egg-yolk-yellow bookshelf that runs around the room near the ceiling. A compact dining room opens through a wide arch to an eat-in galley kitchen expensively outfitted with custom wood cabinetry and premium commercial-style stainless steel appliances.
The main floor guest bathroom is wrapped in emerald-green ceramic tiles that idiosyncratically and perfectly match the sink and toilet. The two bedrooms on the upper floor, each with windowed closet alcoves, share a vintage-tiled hall bathroom.
French doors in the living room, den, and a vestibule just off the kitchen open to an intimate courtyard and terraced backyard with a charming tree house. The front yard is described in listing details as “an edible garden with a citrus orchard.”
