Hump Day Hodgepodge: Michael C. Hall

Last June Your Mama discussed an architecturally pedigreed contemporary residence in the star-studded Outpost Estates neighborhood in Los Angeles owned by seven-time Emmy nominated actor Michael C. Hall (Dexter, Six Feet Under) and then listed on the open market for $1,995,000. The red-bearded star of stage and screen sold the four bedroom and four bathroom house in August (2012) for $1,837,500, according to property records, to globe-trotting British supper club queen Tamsin Lonsdale.

This week word slipped down the celebrity real estate gossip grapevine that Mister Hall shelled out $3,825,000 for an fully rehabbed two story 1923 Spanish Colonial casa in the celebrity friendly Los Feliz area of Los Angeles.*

Listing details show the main house has four en suite bedrooms (plus a staff room) and six bathrooms. A separate, detached guesthouse provides at least one more bedroom, a living room and a bathroom.

Other creature comforts of the walled and gated mini-estate include spacious living and dining rooms, a high quality center island kitchen with adjoining eating and lounge areas, and a state-of-the-art media room with fireplace that appears to be in the basement.

The .35 acre spread offers numerous outdoor lounging areas both in the front and in the back plus a swimming pool and a recently constructed over-sized two car garage at the tail end of a long concrete driveway.

*Mister Hall's new house happens to be almost directly across the street from the double-gated mini-estate hospital drama queen Kate Walsh recently put (back) on the market two weeks ago for $4,750,000 and already has in escrow with an as-yet unidentified buyer.

Were looking at this when Ellen bought a house in Montecito?

A lot of nice little touches, but it just doesn't gel for me for some reason. Seems not just reworked, but overworked.

From the grim, morgue-like kitchen to the lounge off it with the unfortunate view of the driveway & garage-cum-guesthouse wall, adding the pool & landscaping it within an inch of its life, it just comes across as trying too hard.

No need to slam the decor...

Too gray and depressing. I would feel claustrophobic living there...

Los Feliz is no where near celebrity friendly, there's a few celeb, but I never seen any of them.

Such great taste in clean-lined homes, only rivaled (I'm serious) by his portrayals on Dexter and Six Feet Under. Damn he's good.

Like it all. Gray can't last forever. Barn pulley doors are on my bucket list. Need the right interiors. Someday.

Ah, that you never see any of them is one reason why the many, many Los Feliz celebrities count it as friendly to them.

I love the interiors. Maybe that says something about my taste (or lack of it), I don't know. But I love it. Very chic and pretty while still being homey and comfy. My only nitpick is that I prefer more greenery around my pool area.
