Dakota and Elle Fanning have certainly been successful in Hollywood, and now their parents are hoping to be just as successful upon the sale of their home. The Fanning’s childhood home is now on the market for $2.85 million and has been in the family since 2003, when they bought it for $1.325 million.
The 5-bedroom, 4-bathroom home is located in one of Studio City’s most highly sought-after neighborhoods, and is situated on a quiet cul-de-sac perched up on the hillside, surrounded by mature trees and tucked behind a gated front courtyard.
Built in 1953, the exterior of the French country-style home features white stucco, clay roof shingles, and a double-car garage. The home is outfitted with roomy living and dining areas, vaulted ceilings, and plenty of large windows and French doors to allow for an abundance of natural light.
The all-white gourmet kitchen features marble counters, a large center island, stainless appliances, and a breakfast nook that overlooks the lush greenery of the property. The adjacent family room provides the perfect spot for entertaining.
The bedrooms either have French doors that lead to the outside or oversized windows that provide just as natural light. The master ensuite bathroom comes with a double-sink vanity, clawfoot free-standing tub, separate glass-enclosed shower, and a separate area for the toilet tucked behind a decorative archway.
The double-height great room comes equipped with a limestone fireplace, and leads out to a terraced backyard with wonderful views of Hollywood Hills.
A lagoon-style swimming pool and spa top off the 3,582-square-foot home, and provide a delightful focal point in the backyard, which also features seating areas and mature trees.
The Fanning girls’ parents filed for divorce in late 2016, but reconciled shortly after in order to give their marriage another shot. With this listing, it remains to be seen if the couple will be moving onto a another abode together, or go their separate ways.
Dakota paved the way in Hollywood for younger sister Elle, but they are both certainly bonafide stars. They both may have started out as child actors, but their adult roles are definitely solidifying their status in Tinseltown, especially with older sister Dakota now taking on a role in the upcoming film “Ocean’s 8,” opposite the likes of Sandra Bullock, Helena Bonham Carter, Anne Hathaway, and Cate Blanchett.
