Funnyman Chris Hardwick, famous in the 1990′s for his stint as the host of MTV’s “Singled Out” and decades as a comedian, has just paid $2,050,000 for a Hollywood Hills estate. According to public records and reporting by the Los Angeles Times, Hardwick closed on the property on November 8, 2012. The hilltop Los Angeles home has four-bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms spread out over 4,205 square feet.
The home is a private, gated 1923 Tudor home. Hardwick bought the home directly from the designer, who, according to listing information, spent 3 years renovating the home. The changes were inspired by the Florentine villa “Torre di Bellosguardo.” Sitting on a 11,500 square-foot lot, the home has landscaped grounds, stone walls and stairs leading to a terraced garden. As expected from a house in the Hollywood Hills, Hardwick’s new place has spectacular canyon and head-on panoramic Downtown-to-Long-Beach views. Inside the home, details abound, including Venetian plaster walls and hand forged wrought iron balconies throughout. The master bath has an original reglazed clawfoot tub, steam shower, dual vanities and Grohe fixtures. In the kitchen, you’ll find vaulted ceilings, marble countertops, Viking stainless appliances, 100 year old reclaimed wood cabinetry and mosaic Italian tiles. An original log cabin on ground floor now serves as a studio. The property has room for a pool too!
