Michelle Monaghan Sells Hollywood Hills House Over Asking Price (EXCLUSIVE)

SELLER: Michelle Monaghan
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $1,565,000
SIZE: 2,028 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms plus guesthouse

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: After a long and undoubtedly frustrating 1.5 years on and off the market, Michelle Monaghan, currently portraying a devoted and high-ranking cult member on the Hulu original series “The Path,” has at long last sold her house in the Hollywood Hills for $1.565 million, well below the original asking price of $1.695 million but $70,000 above the property’s last asking price of $1.495 million. It doesn’t take a real estate expert or a mathematics savant to recognize that when improvement expenses, carrying costs and real estate fees are factored in the “former blue-ribbon hog wrestler” from Iowa and her Australian-born graphic designer husband Peter White lost a pretty penny or two on the property that they acquired, per tax records and other online resources, via trust in June 2007 for $1.5 million. Stylishly appointed if on the tiny side by Tinseltowner standards, the modern-minded 1920s Mediterranean measures in at 2,028-square-feet with two bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, per listing details, plus a dinky bonus room and pint-sized guesthouse.

A gated and secured courtyard privatized by a towering hedge links the street to the front door that opens without foyer or ceremony directly into a combination living/dining room with wood-beamed ceiling, medium brown hardwood floors, fireplace, and French doors to a street-side roof deck atop one of the house’s two single-car garages. It’s a couple steps up from the living/dining room to a second dining area lined with multi-paned casement windows and open over a short peninsula to a contemporary and compact but efficiently arranged kitchen with late-model name-brand appliances and a putty-toned striated stone counter top that waterfalls over the edge of espresso colored cabinets. Two upper floor bedrooms include the master suite that’s roomy enough to accommodate a small sitting area with fireplace and additionally provides a dressing area, marble bathroom with steam shower, and French doors to a partly covered private veranda with over-the-treetops city view. Tucked up behind the house a separate but attached guest suite opens to a small private flagstone terrace and includes ship lath clad walls, raised ceiling, and private bathroom.
