Actor Shawn Ashmore has been busy lately! The X-Men actor recently sold one home and purchased another nearby in Los Angeles.
Ashmore burst onto the scene when he appeared as Iceman in the X-Men series, and viewers may also know him from his role as Jake in the TV series, Animorphs.
Ashmore’s previous home, which he purchased in 2009 for $593,000, sold this August for $653,500, and after three months of looking in a hot and heavy LA market, Ashmore purchased a home in Studio City for $995,000.
The 3 bed, 3 bath Studio City charmer boasts a stone-lined salt water pool, spa, hardwood floors, and sits behind an idyllic white picket fence. The kitchen impresses with stainless steel appliances and a connected eating area, along with convenient outdoor access.
A perfect escape, the master suite includes a stunning master bath with a step in shower and spa tub.

Creator of home decor brand Shabby Chic
2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, office, artist's studio and garden
Rachel Ashwell, the famous interior designer and creator of well-loved Shabby Chic home decor brand has just purchased a brand new cottage home in the heart of Venice, CA. It’s more Chic than it is Shabby, with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom and office and artist’s studio with walls of windows looking out onto a lush and colorful garden. Very true to the Shabby Chic brand, the home has an inviting white exterior and a white picket fence. The interior is bathed in pastels and features well-worn fixtures. No doubt Ashwell will take this tiny Venice treasure and bathe it in her signature home decor style of beautiful imperfection.
When it comes to her home style, Ashwell says, “my thoughts about decorating are that a home can be truly lived in and still be lovely. I believe in cozy relaxed settings where kids are free to put their feet on the sofa and guests can place their cups on the coffee table without a care. For me, the secret to living well is to surround myself with beautiful things that are practical and deliciously comfortable.”
Her new Venice cottage is just two blocks to Abbot Kinney, dubbed “the coolest block in America” by GQ magazine. This home is storied in the Venice area, as it’s been a stop on The Venice Garden Tour, The Venice Art Walk and even gained national recognition in numerous home decor and cottage magazines.
If you were concerned that Ashwell wouldn’t have enough rooms to decorate in this tiny cottage, never fear. She also owns another Los Angeles-area home. She purchased a 5 bedroom, 3 bathroom, 3,276 square foot home in October 2007 for $4.15M.
Not too Shabby.
