Kristen Wiig Lists Silver Lake Home for $5.1 Million

By Mark David

Having recently completed a carefully considered, comprehensive and no doubt exceedingly costly restoration, update and addition of a swimming pool and guesthouse, funny lady Kristen Wiig has listed an architecturally significant hillside home in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles with a dead serious asking price of $5.125 million. The “Bridesmaids” writer and star purchased the circa 1952, Albert P. Martin-designed, treehouse-like residence in May 2014 for $1.7 million and, per marketing materials, engaged the high-end services of Taalman Architecture and The Archers to work the place over into a photogenic, avocational architecture maven’s private paradise.

Positioned at a thigh busting and glute firming altitude above the street and two-car garage on a forbiddingly precipitous, 17,000-square-foot up-sloped parcel that borders the legendary, John Lautner-designed Silvertop residence, the sun-filled, south-east facing residence retains its original floor plan with three bedrooms and three bathrooms in about 2,500-square-feet. A newly built poolside pavilion of about 1,000-square-feet contains another bedroom and bathroom.
