For today’s blog, exclusive to our TTP members, we will be talking more about Kate Mara and Jamie Bell, and of course, their lovely home that is on the market right now. Now without further adieu, let’s get into the blog.
The House of Cards actor Kate Mara and her husband, Jamie Bell, have listed their private retreat in the Los Feliz neighborhood of Los Angeles for 3.2 million dollars. They purchased the house in 2018 for 2.6 million dollars and made some slight cosmetic changes to it before putting it back on the market. This traditional style house was originally designed by architect Garrett Van Pelt that was built in the year 1936.
This gated home provides privacy because it is set back from the street with a hedge row. It is uncommon in Los Feliz Oaks, which is an exclusive neighborhood among celebrities, including Rooney Mara, who is Mara’s sister and the star of “The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.” Mara also sold her nearby mid century modern home in 2018.
Opening to brick flooring and a window seat with bookshelves, the entry flows right into an open floor plan. It has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, totaling just under 3,000 square feet of space. This beautiful property is surrounded by a thick hedge wall so the outside cannot be seen from the public area.
One side of the home features a detached garage with 2 parking spaces on one side, while the other facade has a metal gate for the entrance. The actors made some modern updates to this house. They had painted the cabinets in the kitchen graphite gray and added built in window seats to the living room which matched the hardwood floors, vaulted ceilings, and sunroom with red brick flooring.
The light and bright living room features a fireplace and window seats. The adjoining dining room has glass doors that offer access to the patio and backyard. There is a vaulted ceiling, stainless steel appliances, and deep-gray cabinets in the updated kitchen. Seating comes with the center island. The walk-in closet is an exciting addition to the house, with mirrored walls. The bathrooms contain a built in bath tub and glassed shower.
Other delightful details include a laundry room and a brick-floored sunroom. Football memorabilia spotted in the home hints at Mara’s ties to family members who have owned the New York Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers.
The home’s long and narrow lot explains why there is a long hallway that connects to various bedrooms. The exterior of the property has multiple doors which open to various parts of the gardens. A swimming pool
is flanked by a brick patio and raised spa and there are also tall lush lawns. There’s also a covered dining pavilion with an outdoor fireplace that transports you to a secret garden. Mara has been in many popular movies and is known for her role in the Netflix drama, House of Cards.
She has also starred in Chappaquiddick, The Martian, and Fantastic Four, where she met her future husband.
