What do furniture designer Guy Chaddock, Ellen DeGeneres, Heath Ledger, and Josh Hutcherson all have in common?
All four of these successful individuals have owned and lived in the same Laurel Canyon home that Hutcherson just put on the market for $3.5 million.
The Hunger Games actor bought the home in 2012 for $2.5 million, a smart move as he was just on the cusp of fame through films like Little Manhattan, Bridge to Terabithia, and Journey to the Center of the Earth and the house was at a reasonable price.
The 1951 two-bedroom, two-bath, 1,861-square-foot home may seem small at first glance, but in addition to its multiple famous owners, it’s a coveted escape from the craziness of LA.
Located in Hollywood Hills, some have called it “the treehouse,” “Shangri-La,” or a “Zen retreat.” The names undoubtedly fit the mid-century modern abode is tucked away in a sycamore grove on a half-acre hillside.
The inside features polished concrete floors with pitched wood-beamed ceilings and walls made of glass.
The two bedrooms are equipped with French doors opening to the outdoors, and the house also includes an office in addition to the kitchen furnished with stainless-steel Miele and Sub-Zero appliances, plus a wine fridge.
Everything has been remodeled with great intentionality to preserve the mid-century modern architecture.
However, what’s possibly the most stunning feature the home has to offer is its 2,500-square-foot outdoor deck, an area even bigger than the house itself.
Overlooking leafy treetops, it includes an outdoor grill, an open-air screening room with a retractable projection screen, and several seating areas. Several doors open from the inside onto the deck as well as gardens and stone paths.
Deedee Howard and Charlie Heydt of The Agency are the listing agents of this luxurious oasis.
Currently, Hutcherson is starring and producing the web comedy series Future Man as well as preparing for his roles in Burn and James Franco’s The Long Home, and the 26-year-old just paid about $1.9 million for a three-level, 2,000-square-foot home in Silver Lake.
