An Overview of Lauren London’s Purchase
Until recently, Lauren London has lived in a series of rental properties. She has now decided to simplify her living circumstances and to put down some roots by buying her own home. The property in question is a min-estate in Sherman Oaks, and she has paid $1.7 million in an off-market deal. It is a two-story, quasi-Spanish Colonial villa that is walled and gated. The house was built in 1949, and it measures 2,589-square-feet internally and boasts four bedrooms and 3.5-bathrooms. Since the property was built, it has undergone extensive renovation and has been extended.
Inside the Sherman Oaks Residence
Through the front door, the house opens straight out into an airy floorplan, with a connected living room and a step-down family room. The living room is decorated in neutral shades of white and gray, and it features wooden flooring and an arched, modern fireplace. Above the latter hangs a wall-mounted television. The living room is partially open-plan to the dining room, as there is only a half wall with a glass-free, peek-a-boo window separating the two rooms. Like the living room, the dining room has white walls and wooden flooring. Steps with wrought iron railings lead down from the living room into a cozy family room that also connects to the kitchen. From the family room, double doors are leading to the house’s backyard.
Leading from the dining room is the kitchen, which is white cupboards and stainless steel appliances running along one wall, and a shelf hosing smaller appliances on the opposite wall. At the end of the kitchen, a sink sits below dual aspect windows that overlook the backyard. The countertop extends beyond the sink behind a wall, then curves round to create a breakfast bar area that is set up with stools for informal dining. While the main section of the kitchen has inset ceiling spotlights, there is pendant lighting hanging above the breakfast bar area. A curved staircase with black, wrought-iron railings leads to a U-shaped landing on the second floor. On the far side of the landing, there is a small nook with shelves that is ideal for a quiet reading space.
There are four bedrooms in the property, one of which is on the lower floor, while the other three are on the upper level. The master suite is located on the home’s second floor, and it is a spacious room with a vaulted ceiling. It has a master bathroom with a monochrome theme of black and white that boasts dual vanities, a soaking tub, a large mirror, and dual rainfall showers. There is also a white walk-in closet with custom built-ins to accommodate a vast array of clothes, shoes, and accessories. From the master bedroom, French doors are leading to a covered private balcony with white railings. The balcony looks out over the small back yards and overlooks several neighboring properties. Lights are strung from the beamed balcony covering, allowing London to sit out on her balcony on warm evenings. In addition to the four bedrooms, there is a bonus room on the ground floor that has the potential for use as a fifth bedroom in which London could accommodate guests. However, it is also possible for the actress to use this room for various purposes, such as a gym, den, or home office.
The Exterior of Lauren London’s New Pad
Lauren London’s new residence sits on a small lot of just 0.15-acres. To the front of the property, there is a driveway leading to an attached two-car garage. Next to the driveway is a fenced-in grassy lawn shaded by an elm tree. A small stone driveway leads to the front door. The rest of the garden is to the property’s rear, says Dirt.com. At the rear, the small backyard is predominantly hardscaped, and a high brick wall that is painted white surrounds the garden. Behind the wall are mature trees that offer some privacy from neighboring properties. However, it has some interesting features that make it a great space for family leisure time, alfresco dining, or entertaining friends and family. The main feature of the backyard is a plunge pool with an in-built spa section, where London can enjoy splashing around with her two sons or with visitors to her home. Surrounding the pool are various lounging areas and potted plants. Another feature of the backyard is a built-in BBQ center with a bar that sits in the garden corner.
