Hump Day Hodgepodge: Mindy Kaling

As was first revealed this week by the long-legged blond at Trulia Luxe Living, sitcom star and comedic wunderkind Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project, The Office) coughed up $1.695 for a hardcore fixer upper on a winding cul-de-sac in the so-called Bird Streets 'hood above L.A.'s famed Sunset Strip.  Listing details we dug up on the internets show the property has "significant upside potential" and is blessed with bird's eye view all the way to—and on a clear day beyond—the small knot of sky scrapers that comprise Century City.

Listing details show the existing two-story residence has three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms jam-packed in to a modest 1,599 square feet. Even more notable then the house—Your Mama has to assume Miss Kaling will significantly alter and expand if not entirely replace with something more suitably luxurious for a celebrity of her station—is the heart racing and glutially murderous amount of stairs required to get from the street level driveway and garage to the house itself that's perched high, high, high up a seriously steep hillside.

Miz Kaling continues to own a restored Spanish Revival bungalow with four bedrooms and three bathrooms near The Grove and Farmer's Market that property records show she picked up in 2007 for $1.575 million.

Those stairs look extra steep / old code. Tip the movers well. Her calf muscles will ache like hell for a few weeks. After that it's a breeze, e.g. old parking structures 101. Will need to put a couple of strong neighbors on retainer to carry Mrs. Doubtfire-type visitors up to the door.
