BUYER: Alexander SkarsgårdLOCATION: Los Angeles, CAPRICE: $1,850,000SIZE: 2,479 aboveboard feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
YOUR MAMAS NOTES: Despite active and alive in Los Angeles for added than bisected a dozen years, Swedish-born blur and television amateur Alexander Skarsgård resisted ambience bottomward absolute acreage roots in Tinseltown until March (2012)—we aboriginal heard from a able bare we’ll alarm Fatima Figgereditout—when he shelled out $1,850,000 to access a cautiously preserved and carefully adapted mid-century avant-garde abode pneumatically perched on a clandestine bank at the appendage end of a quiet cul-de-sac in the the celeb-studded hills aloft L.A.’s upscale, boho-hipster Los Feliz neighborhood.**
The ever-so-slightly but deliciously buck-toothed Mister Skarsgård is apparently best accepted as the powerful, effectively adult and emotionally complicated 1,100 year old vampire Eric Northman on the boob-toob hit alternation True Blood. Since he accustomed in Tinseltown in the aboriginal Aughts, the able amateur has additionally appeared in a array of projects including the eye-crossingly stoopid male-model bluff Zoolander, the Emmy-winning mini-series Generation Kill, the recent—and not-particularly-successful—remake of Straw Dogs, and Lars van Trier’s psyche-disrupting bone-rattler Melancholia. Several years ago he befuddled his attractive money maker as Lady Gaga’s affected and scrumptiously scruffy man-friend in her music video for Paparazzi. Remember that, kids?
Mister Skarsgård—in case you didn’t know—comes from high-profile (if intellectually-minded) Showbiz roots in his built-in Sweden. His father, Stellan Skarsgård, acclaimed as a nuanced amateur in Sweden and beyond. In accession to the bulk of European movies Your Mama has never heard of because, well, we don’t chase Swedish cinema actual carefully the ancient Mister Skarsgård has additionally had notable genitalia in any cardinal of movies acceptable to be able-bodied accepted by the boilerplate American cine goer (Good Will Hunting, The Avengers and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) as able-bodied as his fair allotment of roles in haute-indie films such as the upcoming, two-part Lars van Trier-directed soft-porn psychodrama Nymphomaniac. At the age of 61—and applicable of actually annihilation pertinent to the absolute acreage accompanying amount at hand—the active and beefcake ancient Mister Skarsgåed afresh sired is eighth adolescent with his decidedly adolescent added wife. Imagine for a moment, adulate beans, accepting a (half-)sibling 36 years your junior, as does the adolescent Mister Skarsgård.
Anyhoo, for the record, Mister Skarsgård’s name does not arise on any of the acreage annal Your Mama peeped —it was clearly purchased with a generically-named trust—but our mysteriously but consistently impeccably and accurately abreast acquaintance and informant, Lucy Spillerguts, seconded Fatima’s well-researched celebrity absolute acreage scuttlebutt. None-the-less, puppies, let’s use them noggins: This ain’t, technically, nuthin’ but some asinine rumor and gossip.
Listing advice from the time of the acquirement that Your Mama amid on the internets shows the single-story abreast was advised by modernist-minded artist Phil Brown and congenital in 1963—for his parents, our analysis reveals—with 2-3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 2,479 aboveboard anxiety of sun-flooded, steel-framed and glass-walled autogenous spaces that are bedeviled by satisfying, gasp-worthy angle that amplitude over a advanced bind of Los Angeles.
The advanced door, carefully set into a abysmal alcove out of appearance from the street, opens into a abounding advanced access amplitude that melts calmly into a buoyant, 30 bottom continued living/dining aggregate amplitude with chicken albino copse floors, aerial ceilings with clerestory windows, an open-sided gas broiler with amphibian hearth, and blood-tingling expanses of paneless windows and bottle sliders that bark aback to an eave-shaded blanket about terrace that hovers over the hillside with toe-tingling burghal vistas.
At the time it the acreage was purchased, the kitchen, calmly attainable to but abstracted from the living/dining area, had a abounding and sleek, and actual big-ticket Euro-brand kitchen. An abutting breakfast breadth with bend windows and bottle sliders connects to the cantilevered accouter that girdles two abandon of the living/dining area. Just off the kitchen a flexi-purpose allowance with animated burghal appearance could be acclimated as a third bedroom, home office, Pilates flat or t.v. watching lounge.
On the added ancillary of the abode a adept bedchamber has two, not-very-big closets and a through-the-pine-trees appearance of the burghal as able-bodied as a hardly blocked burghal appearance beyond a semi-enclosed atrium and bright through the living/dining room. The absorbed adept bath has a long, amphibian bifold vanity, a two-person assimilation tub set into a glass-tiled platform, a abstracted arrest battery partially amid by a cellophane breadth of glass, and a abstracted accommodation from the crapper.
At the time of the purchase, the added bedchamber had about an absolute bank of windows cloistral by acreage shutters, a privacy-ensuring but somewhat out of ambience adorning accommodation Your Mama would not accept recommended or installed in a abode with this array of quintessentially mid-century avant-garde architectural integrity.
The hillside lot is a decent-size division acre but accessible alfresco amplitude is—or was at the time of the purchase—limited to the blanket about accouter on the behind of the house. However, should Mister Skarsgård—or whomever—desire added amplitude in the future, business abstracts Your Mama dug up out of the black morass of the interweb appearance a cogent addendum was advised with added active amplitude that juts out like a burst cartilage from the aboriginal structure, an abounding roof accouter and a lap-length pond pool.
**Settle down, Angelenos, we’re not hatin’. We adulation us some Los Feliz. Child, Your Mama and our oldest lesbo gal-pal The Chicken were blind out at The Dresden aback afore sequined-slathered singers Marty and Elayne anytime put on their aboriginal body-shaping undergarments. Even admitting it is badly bunched and, well, a little dingy, the Vintage on Vermont is a goddamn indie blur haven in blockbuster-driven L.A. and all of y’all who common the ‘hood care to buy books on a approved base at Skylight Books, additionally on Vermont. Okay? We j’adore Los Feliz. It wasn’t so continued ago the still appealing humble ‘hood was a little bottomward on its heels but—let’s get real, gurl—the breadth has gotten clearly flush over the aftermost decade in that abundantly tattooed, Audi- or Prius-driving, Open Ceremony-shopping, I–only-look-like-I-haven’t–showered–in–three–days array of way.
