Actress Naya Rivera Sells to Artist Lari Pittman (EXCLUSIVE)

Location:
Los Angeles, Calif.
Price:
$3.55 million
Size:
4,330 square feet, 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms

In the aftermath of her short and stormy marriage to actor Ryan Dorsey, “Glee” alum Naya Rivera has sold her 1930s clapboard-clad traditional residence in the affluent foothills above L.A.’s Los Feliz area for $3.55 million. The buyers were internationally acclaimed painter Lari Pittman and artist Roy Dowell. Rivera, who popped up as a recurring character on high-school musical-dramedy “Step-Up: High Water,” purchased the more than 4,300-square-foot, East Coast-style home a little more than five years ago for $2.6 million. There are five bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms over three levels of renovated and updated interior spaces that mix vintage architectural detailing with modern flourishes and amenities.

A petite foyer features an elegant, tightly curved staircase; the step-down living room has a fireplace embellished with graphic black-and-white tile work; a library/den has a deep, cushioned, built-in sofa banquette set into a windowed bay; and the formal dining room opens to a renovated kitchen in black and white. Two guest bedrooms and a hall bathroom join the master suite on the upper level while the expansive lower level incorporates another bedroom with bathroom suitable for guests or staff. A media lounge, game room and family room with fireplace and French doors open to a wrap-around deck overlooking a private, hedge-encircled backyard, swimming pool and spa.

Word on the celebrity real estate street is that Rivera has been keenly interested in several multimillion-dollar homes tucked up into a quiet Beverly Hills canyon, and has initiated and canceled at least one escrow. Meanwhile, Pittman and Dowell sold their previous home, an architecturally significant, two-residence compound in the foothills on 5.7-acres above La Crescenta, about 20 miles north of downtown L.A., for $4.25 million to Red Hot Chili Pepper Michael “Flea” Balzary.
