Actress Laura Dern’s Former Home Lists in Star-Studded Pacific Palisades
Los Angeles has many posh neighborhoods that draw in celebrities, but the Pacific Palisades seems to have a revolving door of stars. Everyone from Matt Damon to Whoopi Goldberg to Dennis Quaid to Michelle Pfeiffer have called the area home. And so did actress Laura Dern. The Big Little Lies star’s former Pacific Palisades abode is now for sale seeking $6.275 million.
Together with her ex-husband, musician Ben Harper, Dern owned this bright contemporary home set behind sleek gates. No longer in their hands as of 2015, the current owners have elevated the residence since then with a $1.5 million renovation and likely hope to see a return on their investment.
The vibrant yet airy style of the interiors combined with the thoughtful outdoor spaces creates an utterly cool California pad. In the foyer, a giant cherry art installation kicks off the tour on a whimsical note. Walking under arched doorways, the living room and calming kitchen come into sight, both leading out to the fun-filled backyard.
Ready for outdoor living and entertaining 24/7, it has a pool and spa, barbecue area, and a covered and heated seating area. A new pizza oven awaits that can produce fresh and fast food, that is, three-minute pizzas. With a small vegetable and herb garden nearby, one can even give guests a farm-to-table experience.
Close to a trail that looks out to the Pacific Ocean, the location of this four-bedroom home will have buyers swooning. Its charming style and swanky amenities don’t hurt either.
Anthony Marguleas of Amalfi Estates has the listing.
