Kate Mara and Jamie Bell list their secluded Los Feliz home

Married actors Kate Mara and Jamie Bell have listed their private retreat in the hills of Los Feliz for US$3.2 million.

The House of Cards actress and her Rocketman husband paid US$2.6 million for the property in 2018, which was designed by acclaimed Pasadena architect Garrett Van Pelt.

According to The Dirt, the traditional-style house was built in 1936 and boasts four bedrooms and three bathrooms in just under 279sq m of living space.

The home is said to be incredibly private, with the property set in a remote pocket of town and hidden behind a thick hedge wall, invisible from the street.

On one side of the property, there’s a detached two-car garage, while on the other side you can find the main entrance behind a locked metal gate at street level that leads down a steep flight of stairs to the house itself.

Mara and Bell have made some cosmetic changes to the property including adding new cabinets and adding two new built-in window seats to the living room.

There are hardwood floors and vaulted ceilings throughout, plus a sunroom with red brick flooring.
