Vince Vaughn Wants $12,500 per Month for Kate Bosworth’s Old House in the Hollywood Hills

OWNER: Vince Vaughn
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $12,500 per month
SIZE: 2,890 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: An anonymous birdie chirped in our inbox, and the celebrity property gossips at Zillow already caught wind, that virtually always working actor, producer and season two “True Detective” star Vince Vaughn has made a residence he owns in the Nichols Canyon area of the Hollywood Hills available for lease at $12,500 per month. Current online marketing materials, which curiously make use of the exact same listing photographs from the time the 6’5” poker aficionado purchased the property in July 2014 for $2.375 million from fellow Tinseltowner Kate Bosworth, show the two-story residence sits on a gated, 0.54-acre lot and includes three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in 2,890 square feet.

Of course, it’s very possible and maybe even likely that things have been changed up somewhat or even significantly, but at the time of Mister Vaughn’s purchase the house sported crisp white walls, vaulted and wood beamed ceilings, and milk chocolate-colored hardwood floors that ran throughout the interconnected living and entertaining spaces on the main floor that include a “formal” living room area with white brick fireplace and an adjoining lounge with built-in television and media-storage cubbies and a back wall papered in a fetching and feminine floral print on a mustard base. Around the backside of the fireplace, the dining room then opened and presumably still does to a wide but still galley-style kitchen that was certainly well stocked if plainly dressed with beige countertops on white cabinets and white subway tile backsplashes. The gigantic greenhouse window over one of two porcelain farmhouse sinks is, as far as this property gossip is concerned, an architectural festivity that injects a needed bit of edge and drama, not to mention natural light, into the proverbial heart of the home.

There are — or were — two guest/family bedrooms on the main floor, one that opens through French doors to the garden and the other with a bank of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves. The bedrooms share an unexpectedly spacious hall bathroom with convenient exterior access from the pool and a liberal use of luxurious if, at least for those who prefer a bit of spice in their decorative palette, quotidian beige stone tiles and countertops. The master suite, privately perched all by itself on the upper floor, incorporates a landing at the top of the stairs with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, a good-sized bedroom with strategically placed skylight over the bed, a balcony nestled in the treetops, a fitted walk-in closet, and a white ceramic tile bathroom fitted with marble-topped double-sink vanity, jetted tub, and separate steam-equipped shower. The main living and dining areas open through a series of glass doors to a broad deck and terrace that runs the full length of the house and wraps around to a bamboo-ringed, lap-length swimming pool.

Mister Vaughn, a staple of celebrity property gossip columns in Los Angeles and Chicago, maintains a small but impressive and frequently in flux residential property portfolio. Last September he sold a 4,064-square-foot townhouse in Chicago’s River North nabe for $1.4 million, and he and his missus, former Canadian real estate agent Kyla Weber, continue to own a 7,308-square-foot Craftsman-inspired mini-manse in Manhattan Beach, Calif., that they bought in early 2014 for $6.447 million. They also own a classic Colonial on a leafy street in the affluent La Cañada-Flintridge area of Los Angeles that was scooped up in April 2013 for $3.925 million, cosmetically refreshed and then put up for sale in August 2015 at $5.299 million, and is currently in escrow to be sold for an unknown amount to an unknown buyer. And, finally, Mister Vaughn still possesses and can’t for the life of him seem to get rid of a titanic, 12,000-square-foot triplex penthouse atop the Palmolive Building in Chicago — part of which was once the office of Playboy’s now 80-something-year-old in-house playboy Hugh Hefner — that he acquired in September 2006 for $12 million, first put up for sale in 2011 at a ridiculously optimistic $24.7 million, and last had listed on the open market in the fall of 2015 with a hugely reduced price of $13.9 million.
