Actress Minnie Driver just wrote a check for $2,465,000. Her purchase? A 3 bedroom, 4 bathroom, 2,765 square foot traditional-style estate nestled in the Hollywood Hills.
Recently remodeled, Driver’s new digs sit on a magnificently landscaped, private lot. The verdant setting features a lagoon pool, spa, waterfall, gazebo and large lawn areas for entertaining.
Impeccable taste and quality workmanship are reflected throughout the house and evident in the dark hardwood floors, cathedral ceilings and paneled wainscoting. The living room has a wood burning fireplace and a stunning diamond hatched bay window to take in the views.
A brand new kitchen has a farmhouse sink, stone countertops, beautiful cabinetry and a gracious breakfast room.
Minnie’s new master suite features French doors to the yard, a luxurious granite bathroom with soaking tub, a huge shower, double sinks and celebrity must-have: a custom-built walk-in closet.
All bedrooms are en-suite, and the third bedroom has a separate entrance, ideal for use as an office or guest suite.
The gated property has a two car garage, parking for eight additional cars, and another celebrity homes must-have: a primo security system.
Driver has lived for nearly two decades in a home nearby, which she bought for $775,000 in 1998. She still currently owns that property, but with this new purchase, be on the look out for the listing soon!
Eric Lowry of Coldwell Banker represented the home’s sellers, and Joe Reichling of Sotheby’s International Realty was Minnie Driver’s real estate agent.
