Funny lady Kristen Wiig has a secret talent. In addition to being a writer, producer, and actress, she has a gift for real estate.
The 45-year-old just sold her impeccably renovated and restored midcentury modern abode in the Silver Lake area of L.A. for $5,225,000, a generous $100,000 over ask. The “Saturday Night Live” alum placed it on the market only about two months ago, and it was quickly snapped up, Variety reports.
The home was last purchased in 2014 for $1.7 million. According to Variety, the sale price is one of the highest for the area—almost three times what the actress paid for the place less than five years ago.
The comedian’s former home is seriously nice. The three-bedroom, three-bedroom abode from 1954 is known as the Martin Residence, after architect Albert P. Martin. Perched on about a half-acre lot above the Silver Lake Reservoir with Silver Lake views, it features tons of indoor-outdoor space, a wraparound deck, multiple patios, a pool and spa, landscaped grounds, and a two-car garage.
In addition to the original layout of formal living and dining rooms, office, and den, a new screening room was added and a new poolhouse with studio and sauna was also added.
Along with the sliding glass doors, which allow for plenty of expanded living space outdoors, original design details were preserved, such as hand-painted tiles, a concrete block central fireplace, and a child’s mural on a pocket door. Cedar plank ceilings and cement tile floors run throughout the home.
Wiig, who’s set to star as Cheetah in the upcoming “Wonder Woman 1984,” has had a hit-making career, starring in the blockbusters “Bridesmaids” and the reboot of “Ghostbusters.”
The star continues to try her hand in the real estate game. She sold a place in Los Feliz last year for $2 million.
