‘Scream Queens’ Star Billie Lourd Flipping Cobalt Blue Contemporary in Santa Monica’s Sunset Park

SELLER: Billie Lourd
LOCATION: Santa Monica, CA
PRICE: $2,395,000
SIZE: 2,279 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Up-and-coming actress and dyed in the wool Hollywood scion Billie Lourd, 24-year-old daughter of late and legendary actress/writer Carrie Fisher and high-powered talent agent Bryan Lourd, appears to have caught a classic case of The Celebrity Real Estate Fickle. Less than a year ago, in May 2016, the “Scream Queens” star paid $2.25 million for a striking, cobalt blue residence in Santa Monica’s Sunset Park neighborhood that she’s flipped back on the market at $2.395 million. Originally built in 1944 and radically reimagined nearly 20 years ago as a loft-inspired urban farmhouse by interior designer Sally Trout, the two-story residence is currently configured with two en suite bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,279 square feet.

Securely set behind a concrete wall topped by dense foliage, the front door opens directly into a sprawling, loft-like space defined by a curved interior wall punctuated by a seemingly random cluster of lighted display niches. Matte finished wide plank hardwood floorboards unite the main floor living spaces while the curved wall efficiently and effectively defines the functionality of the interconnected areas that include a living room anchored by a minimalist concrete fireplace, a small office/den and an unconventionally shaped eat-in kitchen with dove grey Shaker-style cabinets topped by a darker grey countertop that cantilevers off one end to create a handy-dandy snack bar. Behind the den/office, a family room that is easily converted to a third bedroom includes a television-surmounted fireplace, built-in storage cabinets and wood-trimmed glass doors to the backyard.

The main floor guest bedroom has a compact en suite bathroom completely slathered in teeny-tiny square tiles on the floor, walls and ceiling while the airy master bedroom occupies the entire upper floor under a vaulted ceiling and features a concrete-faced fireplace between floor-to-ceiling built-in storage cabinets plus a dressing room lined with built-in wardrobes. The master bathroom is snazzily renovated with stark white radiant heated floor, a pair of floating vanities set against a pixellated pattern tiled wall, a freestanding soaking tub and a separate glass-faced shower.

An attached and finished two-car garage, accessible from an alleyway that runs behind the property, is decked out with stainless steel wet bar and funkily furnished with a pineapple-shaped piñata and a ping-pong table. Like the kitchen and family room, the garage opens through glass doors to a slender, hedge-privatized yard with lap-length dark-bottom swimming pool and multi-level decking that incorporates built-in banquette seating.
