Swedish model and celebrity Mini Andén and version Taber Schroeder sold a richly renovated, 1930s Cape Cod-style house at a leafy and sought pocket of L.A.’s ever-more pricey Studio City late last year for $2. 65 million plus a plugged-in property insider swears that the new owners are wed celebrities Beth Behrs and Michael Gladis. Fronted with a traditional white picket fence and a tree-shaded stretch of yard, the house’s handsomely recognizable conventional exterior belies its own bespoke and thoroughly modern-minded insides which have 3 bedrooms and three baths in near two,800 square feet.
Conventional architectural detailing including six-pane windows, first stair banisters and a few classic brick fireplaces operate in tight resistance and calm stability with daring light fittings and hardwood flooring painted bright white. Inspired by Andén and Schroeder with a classy assortment of eclectic furniture and wrapped with classic paintings of horses, the formal living area is flanked by a fireplace and open into an adjoining living room in which French doors allow easy access into the garden, while the independently modernized eat-in kitchen is a research in luxury ease and dernier cri decorative élan using a snazzy selection of high-end designer appliances and glistening white solid-surface countertops on sugar-white closets with stylish brass fittings. A little breakfast or study area with a corner fireplace surrounded by acid-etched mirrors plus a guest bedroom complete the main floor.
An ample guest bedroom, a vintage-styled bathroom plus a remarkably large, walk-in linen cupboard lined with built-in storage have been connected on the next floor from the master bedroom. The bedroom consists of built-in screen shelves plus a glamorous chandelier and the spacious bath includes a classic, claw-footed tub, a oversized shower sheathed in white subway tiles plus a vaulted ceiling punctuated by a string sky lights that fill the area with natural lighting.
There is a scenic, rock-lined koi pond in the front part of the home and a slender loggia and brick patio beyond the kitchen and living room gives way to a totally personal and rustically landscaped idyll which features a sunken fire pit surrounded by built-in seats, an eye-catching dining pavilion and a delightfully soignée, oval-shaped swimming pool.
The land has been recorded with Ted Fleming in Rodeo Realty and the buyers had been repped by Josh Myler in The Agency.
