Kristen Wiig buys charming Pasadena Georgian home

Having recently sold her Pasadena property, actress Kristen Wiig has decided to purchase a new Georgian home just a few blocks down the street.

According to The Dirt, Wiig paid US$4.9 million for her new picturesque abode, which is surrounded by other stars including Meryl Streep, Grimes and Oscar De La Hoya.

The two-storey red brick structure was originally built in 1930 and features black-shuttered widows and a bright green front door. 

Inside, three bedrooms and four bathrooms are spread across nearly 371sq m of open-plan living space with hardwood floors throughout, designer light fixtures, and steel-framed windows and doors.

There‚Äôs plenty of natural light courtesy of an automated skylight, and French doors that open out to an alfresco patio ideal for dining and entertaining. 

The home also includes a formal living room with a tiled fireplace and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, as well as a formal dining room.

The previous owners gave the home a contemporary overhaul with the help of architect Kevin Oreck and interior designer Deborah Rhein.

The gourmet kitchen has been updated with a pricey La Cornue range topped by a custom hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator, an eat-in marble island bench and a sunny breakfast nook.

The upstairs master suite sits under a vaulted wood ceiling, and displays a duo of windowed seating alcoves, fireplace, balcony, and vintage-style bath equipped with a clawfoot soaking tub and separate shower.

Wiig sold her former Pasadena home to fellow actress Lily Collins for US$3.9 million.
