Elvira Actress Buys Sweet and Airy Los Angeles Home

Cassandra Peterson, the actress most famous for playing Elvira, The Mistress of the Dark, has purchased herself a light and bright new home in Los Angeles. According to property records, Peterson purchased the sweet retreat on July 30, 2012 for $925,000. For a woman famous for playing a dark character, her new home is surprisingly cheery and warm.

The three-bedroom, three-bathroom, 1,605-square-foot home is prime for entertaining, having gone through a complete restoration in 2009. Aside from the bedrooms, the house features a separate 400-square-foot bonus room that has a ¾ bath and private garden. In total, the home contains 2,000 square feet of beautiful, finished space. It also has a large living room, fireplace, formal dining room, and spacious eat-in kitchen. All rooms have tall windows for light and charm. The large brick patio entertaining area and barbeque opens to a stunning sitting area with fountain.

Peterson has a history of living in homes that are the antithesis of her on-screen persona. Almost a decade ago, she owned the home on Valley Oak Drive that Giovanni Ribisi bought earlier this year. She’d previously lived next door to Ribisi’s current digs, but sold that house to Brad Pitt and moved into the home next door!
