Brie Larson Sells Laurel Canyon Home for $2.17 Million

by Kathy Hereford, August 9, 2019

Brie Larson is ready to move on from her Laurel Canyon home just as inconspicuously as she moved in. The Captain Marvel actress recently sold her stylish 2,905-square-foot split-level residence for $2.17 million, a small monetary loss considering the $2.25 million she shelled out for it some three years ago. The three-bedroom, three-bathroom midcentury bungalow was originally built in the early 1950s, but has since been significantly upgraded to create an Instagram-worthy haven.

Tucked into the picturesque, hilly terrain of Laurel Canyon, the house features a central courtyard and a high exposed-wood ceiling punctuated by skylights, plus smooth light-colored hardwood floors throughout. The combination living and dining area has an entire wall of white built-in bookshelves located adjacent to a raised-hearth brick fireplace and opposite an entire wall of floor-to-ceiling windows. The galley kitchen, situated right off the main living space, is sleek and modern, with jet-black countertops and eggshell-colored cabinets. A more informal sitting room/family room is located just off the other side of the main living area, with an oversize disco-ball-esque lighting feature that helps add some eclectic fun to the home’s aesthetic. An office/laundry room on the other side of the kitchen features a whole wall of glass windows with a door that leads directly out to the courtyard.

Elsewhere in the dwelling is the master suite, which includes a luxuriously minimalistic bathroom with a glass-enclosed shower and marble countertops, a cavernous walk-in closet, and access to a secluded spa via the bathroom. The courtyard itself is a little oasis of green, with faux grass adding a pop of color to the space and a number of tropical plants adding texture.

Larson also currently owns a place in Studio City that she bought about a decade ago for just under $900,000, which is likely where she’ll reside until the next beautiful property catches her eye. In an interview with the BBC back in 2016, the Room actress explained that she she spent an entire month at home to prepare for her Oscar-winning role in the film. “I was excited to see what would come up if I tuned out for a while,” she said. “I meditate twice a day so I’m very comfortable with silence and the chatter in my head.” It’s unclear whether Larson was referencing her Laurel Canyon or Studio City residence.
