In the latest celebrity real estate news, actress and singer Lea Michele recently placed her L.A. home on the market. Located in the Brentwood neighborhood, the home has a $3.35 million asking price, slightly more than the $3 million the former “Glee” actress paid when she acquired the hillside property in 2015.

The 3,163 square-foot residence was originally built in 1957 but has received several upgrades that transformed it into the chic, modern space it is today. The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home sits on a half-acre of land in a cul-de-sac overlooking the Mandeville Canyon. The stylish abode features an open floor plan that pairs well with its high vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling and clerestory windows and skylights to create a sufficiently light-filled environment. 

A steel-and-wood floating staircase and dark steel pillars accentuate the foyer, providing a nice contrast with the bright interior. The living area features a custom concrete fireplace surrounded by built-in wooden bookshelves. The decorative theme of dark wood accents continues into the nearby chef’s kitchen and formal dining space. The kitchen features dark cabinetry, high-end appliances and a spacious marble island with waterfall egde at center. Just across from the space is a steel-framed door that opens up to the backyard.  

One of the guest bedrooms presently serves as a dressing area while a second and third function as a family room and a customized room for Michele’s parents during their visits. The second level houses the generously sized master bedroom, which has its own sitting area complete with built-in shelving. The master bath has a marble-lined steam shower, soaking tub and a double-vanity with marble countertops.

Outside, a pool surrounded by palm trees and fountains serves as the main attraction. There’s also a rose-covered pergola and bonfire pit and lounge space for relaxing and entertaining guests. 

Hilton & Hyland’s Justin Paul Huchel holds the listing.
