Los Angeles real estate news

Previously owned by Danny DeVito, the current home of Chris Kattan is now on the market for $1.998 million. The funny man and Saturday Night Live alum may not have the most lavish home in Hollywood, but what it lacks in state-of-the-art features it makes up for in unique architecture and eclectic charm. The 2,469-square-foot Spanish Colonial home was built in 1926 near some of Hollywood’s best comedy clubs and studios.

Located in the Hollywood Hills, Kattan’s stunning home is unique in many ways. Not only has it been occupied by comedians, it’s grand and elaborate decor make it a getaway from the hustle and bustle of the streets of Hollywood.

The two-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath home is equipped with a two-story pool house, large master suite, beautiful crown molding, a Batchelder fireplace and stunning hardwood floors throughout, all of which are original. And although the home features large windows, the mature greenery surrounding it makes it secluded and private while still letting in vibrant sunlight. Vibrant and rich fabrics drape the guesthouse, and the angled windows overlook the pool–so close the water seems to be just an arm’s reach away.

The galley kitchen may not be the largest, buy it has plenty of counterspace and still embodies the unique charm of the Spanish Colonial. The wood-beamed ceiling is a focal point that creates a rustic vibe. There are also plenty of cabinets for storage and matching white appliances that seamlessly blend into the decor.

Notable Features of the Home

Upstairs is a quaint loft space with beautiful wood paneling, wood-beamed ceilings and flooring that create a dreamy look, ideal for an office or play area.

Upon entering the property, an intricate iron gate welcomes guests into a tropical oasis secured with brick walls and ornate light fixtures. The natural stone complements the entry way, which is reminiscent of the architectural style and time period.

One of the home’s most notable features is its secret grotto pool. Surrounded by lush greenery and beautiful, natural stone, the grotto pool serves as an oasis that backs up directly against the folding guesthouse windows that help to bring the outdoors inside. Although the grotto pool takes up much of the space behind the home, its tropical setting makes it look like a true paradise.

Another true selling point of this home is its proximity to Hollywood Boulevard. While it is shut off from the noise and foot traffic of the street with the lush foliage and stone fencing, it is an ideal spot for someone looking to be close to all the action. It’s a true escape from city living.
