Louis Theroux Buys Storybook Colonial in Los Angeles

British TV personality and documentary filmaker Louis Theroux has just bought himself a storybook Colonial home across the pond – in Los Angeles to be exact. Theroux beams into living rooms across the globe in the television series Louis Theroux’s Weird Weekends, his BBC2 Specials and When Louis Met….

You may also recognize his famous last name. He’s the son of American travel writer and novelist Paul Theroux and brother of British novelist and broadcaster Marcel Theroux. He’s also cousin to Justin Theroux, who is engaged to America’s sweetheart, Jennifer Aniston.

According to public records, Theroux paid $1.225M for a beautifully maintained Colonial on tree-line street just a stone’s throw to Los Angeles’ Griffith Park. Traditional on the exterior, the home features so many original details throughout; hardwood floors, untouched crown moldings, built-in cabinets in the formal dining, breakfast room, and den. French doors lead from the living room to den and breakfast room and  spacious kitchen. The home has an excellent flow leading to a large pool-size yard.

A wide grand staircase leads to spacious landing and four large size bedrooms and two full baths upstairs. The gated property also features a 2 car garage!
