Back in March, famed comedian and actress Sarah Silverman sold her West Hollywood condo, which she’d been living in for the last 15 years. The home listed for $1.8 million, and it looks like she’s recently made a big upgrade in both home size and neighborhood, moving to the Los Feliz area. Sarah Silverman’s new home is valued at $3.5 million, and is a much larger property in this east LA neighborhood. The house was never publicly available for sale, as it is entirely new, just having finished construction last year in 2020. There are however some renderings available online which reveal some details and photographs of the home. These renderings include a contemporary design with two full floors, four bedrooms, and four accompanying full bathrooms. The home also comes with an attached two-car garage, a large open-plan living room space, as well as an open dining spice and separate kitchen space, equipped with state of the art kitchen appliances. There are also modern foldaway glass doors that lead out to her deck, which features a fire pit, BBQ station, and a unique rectangular pool. The entire lot is sized at 0.21 acres, but still features a lot of greenery from trees and hedges.
The house also features an interesting powder room, along with a great ensuite bedroom for guests (or perhaps a home office). The master suite comes with a marble bathtub, a full walk-in closet room, and beautiful hardwood floors throughout the entire home. This neighborhood is a high class one east of Hollywood, featuring other celebrity neighbors like Scarlett Johansson, Lykke Li, and Kate Mara. Los Feliz is one of the most exclusive areas of the city, with over 50% of residents estimated to be in the top 1% of income. The neighborhood also features some high profile schools, including Le Conte Middle School and Los Feliz High School, both located within a few blocks.
