Cole spouse buys $ 2.9 million Los Angeles home – DIRT

The success of CW’s “Riverdale” has made budding real estate barons out of the entire cast on the show. In the past year or two, nearly all of the young stars in the greater LA area have found stunning new homes. Camila Mendes got a bungalow in Silver Lake, Madelaine Petsch decided on a fancy Outpost Estates outpost, Charles Melton got a Silver Lake property full of quirks, Lili Reinhart built a Spanish-style Encino house and KJ Apa bought renovated Nichols Canyon – excavations.

Now she’s joining Cole Sprouse on her real-life property search, better known to Riverdale fans as the city’s fiery nonconformist Jughead Jones, who paid nearly $ 3 million for an impressive modernist residence deep in the Hollywood Hills. With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the 2,500 square foot structure makes for a spacious bachelorette club, but that’s only a small part of its unique history.

Not only is Sprouse House damn stylish, it has a real architectural pedigree too. Originally in 1949 for “Mr. Magoo ”co-creator Millard Kaufman, the property was a rare collaboration between three exceptionally skilled mid-century architects: Richard Neutra, the lesser-known Alexander Ban, and the modernist specialist Josef Van der Kar. Mid-1950s, several years after completion of the house, Kaufman again commissioned Neutra to expand the lower floor of the house, which is currently the master suite.

Kaufman held the house for nearly 50 years and eventually sold it in 1997. The property subsequently went through several unrecognized owners, although it briefly belonged to noted architecture curator Michael LaFetra in the early 2000s. The home was last sold for $ 2.3 million in 2016 and underwent extensive restoration in 2017. The owner has refurbished the wooden floors, installed a brand new kitchen and modernized all of the bathrooms.
