My Favorite Murder’s Karen Kilgariff Buys Killer Mid-Century Modern in Studio City

By Bianca Barragan

The co-host of the popular true-crime comedy podcast My Favorite Murder has purchased a glorious midcentury modern in the hills of Studio City.

Variety reports that podcast maven Karen Kilgariff spent $2.1 million on the home, built in 1951. Situated on a windy cul de sac, the house recently underwent “a full period restoration with discerning attention paid to every detail,” according to the listing.

Upgrades include double-paned windows, top-notch Thermador stainless steel appliances, and Fleetwood sliding glass doors. Terrazzo floors, built-in shelves, and a brick fireplace set into a curving wall in the living room are a nod to the home’s midcentury origins.
