Shortly after her pivotal character on “Nashville” was killed off earlier this year, Connie Britton went house hunting in Los Angeles, shelling out close to $3.1 million for a 1920s Mediterranean villa in L.A.’s Los Feliz area. Set well below the street and all but invisible behind a low wall and a sky-high hedge, the vine-encrusted and tile-roofed residence, designed by acclaimed architect Paul Revere Williams, measures in at nearly 4,100 square feet over three floors, with four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.

Preserved original features include a hand-stenciled, exposed wood ceiling and classic checkerboard-pattern flooring in the foyer. Steps down are a living room with hardwood floors, fireplace and adjoining sunroom with tree-framed view of the downtown skyline through a row of arched windows. There’s a second fireplace in the oversized dining room, and a spacious center-island kitchen opens to a window-lined breakfast room with a dreamy view of the Griffith Park Observatory.

Two ample guest bedrooms on the upper level, both with private balconies, share a vintage-tiled hall bathroom, while the master suite offers a bedroom with fireplace, a separate sitting room, an updated bathroom and a walk-in closet plus a closet-lined dressing room outfitted with a washer and dryer. The lowest floor, not accessible from inside the house, contains a wine cellar, lots of storage and a roomy lounge or guest bedroom with en suite bathroom. The terraced backyard has a black-bottom swimming pool.

The flame-tressed actress, on the big screen Oct. 13 in the bio-drama “Professor Marston and the Wonder Women,” maintains a plump property portfolio that includes a modest house in the Beachwood Canyon area of Los Angeles bought in 2001 for $765,000; a bungalow-style residence in Austin, Tex., picked up in 2010 for almost $800,000; a clapboard-clad Colonial in Brentwood, Tenn., acquired in 2013 for $750,000; and an apartment in the same lower Manhattan building where Megan Ellison also keeps a Big Apple pied-a-terre.
