Olivia Wilde and Jason Sudeikis are the new owners of one seriously stylish home. The Booksmart director and the former Saturday Night Live star recently spent $3.5 million (nearly $150,000 over the asking price) on a 2,833-square-foot Spanish-style home located above the Silver Lake Reservoir in Los Angeles. The four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom dwelling hit the market earlier this year and was in escrow within two weeks, according to Variety.
Designed and built in 1928 by Frankie Faulkner (one of L.A.’s first female architects), the dwelling features a classic exterior and a chic modern interior, thanks to a 2016 remodel by DISC. Though the property looks like a rather unassuming single-story house from the outside, the front facade cleverly hides three entire floors of living space. The main floor is large and open, with an impressive barrel-vaulted ceiling, original fireplace, and a large arched window in the living area. The eat-in kitchen has a modern, geometric vibe, with limestone countertops, custom cabinetry, and an eclectic mix of high-end and vintage appliances. An adjacent dining space overlooking the backyard is flooded with natural light.
On the ground floor is a guest bedroom suite with its own private entry, bathroom, and wet bar. The remaining three bedrooms are all on the top floor: Two share a bathroom, while the master suite has its own en suite, with marble countertops and dual vanities and a deep soaking tub. The master bedroom features a large walk-in closet.
Out back is a saltwater swimming pool and sunken spa, plus a tiled lounge area and a patch of lawn. Olive trees and various types of cacti fill the space and help to ensure ultimate privacy. In addition to their new purchase, Wilde and Sudeikis also own a luxurious home in Brooklyn, which they picked up for $6.5 million in late 2014.
