Ellen Pompeo’s Mid-Century Hollywood Hills Home is for Sale
From TV doctor to real-life interior designer: Ellen Pompeo is collecting quite the real estate portfolio in her real life off-screen from Grey’s Anatomy, and an adept decorator’s eye to go with it.
Back in May, we shared a peek inside Pompeo’s modern makeover of a Sag Harbor barn, and now the affable, design-obsessed actress has put her mid-century home in Hollywood Hills on the market for $1.995 million. (According to Trulia, the Boston native purchased the Los Angeles home back in 2008 for $1.226 million.)
And it’s absolutely delightful. Designed in 1957 by architect Harry Greene, according to Architectural Digest, the three bedroom and two bathroom home spans 1,889 square feet and features a chef’s stainless steel kitchen, media room, loads of natural light (thanks to original, sloping glass walls), concrete floors, bright white gallery walls filled with actual galleries of colorful artwork, and something usually lacking in celebrity remodels of mid-century homes: the original stonework, both in the den and around the outdoor pool.
Surrounded by mature palm trees and a forest of lush greenery celebrated by the home’s period-homage design, this is a true escape from LA life for any peace-seeking A-lister. Pompeo is offloading the property from her increasingly savvy real estate portfolio after picking up a dreamy three bedroom, three bathroom Malibu home base back in 2014 for her family, including music producer husband Chris Ivery and their three kids. (The family also owns a historic mansion in Los Feliz.)
Celebrity neighbors who also recently put their nearby homes in the Hollywood Hills on the market include Friends star Matthew Perry’s midcentury bachelor pad, 90s heartthrob Jordan Catalano aka Jared Leto’s four-bedroom hideaway, model Chrissy Teigen and Grammy winner John Legend’s “Thai Temple”, and One Direction frontman Harry Styles’ contemporary, panoramic pad above Sunset Strip.
