Ellen Page reigns victorious after scooping up Venus Williams’ Hollywood Hills mansion.
Coming out of the closet isn’t the only big thing Ellen has done this year. According to The Real Estalker, the “Juno” star splashed out $1.701 million for the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in March. According to property records, the home hit the market in January at a price of $1.799 million, so it looks like Page bargained down a bit. Williams purchased the home in 2005 for $1.9 million, so she lost money on the sale.
Tennis star or movie star, it’s no wonder why anyone would want this midcentury modern crib, which was built in 1955 and sits down a long gated drive, perfect for anyone looking for some privacy. The “Inception” star’s new kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances and a wine fridge. Page can now also enjoy Williams’ former canyon views from either the deck or large pool. Listing photos reveal the estate’s 1950s charm, with high beam ceilings and large windows that flood the home with plenty of natural light. The only thing this home is missing is a tennis court, which is maybe why Williams decided to split. Other stars that have taken up residence in the exclusive Hollywood Hills area include Christina Ricci, Chris Evans and Joaquin Phoenix.
Page’s new home is a bit of an upgrade from her other pad in Studio City, which she still owns. According to property records, the home was purchased under the same trust as the Hollywood Hills home and isn’t currently on the market. The two-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom home spans 1,499 square feet. It’s clear that the actress certainly has an affinity for the midcentury modern design, as this home was also built in 1955 and maintains that ’50s feel.
Both homes are full of character; which one would you want to live in?
