Kal Penn Lists Con­tempo in the Hol­ly­wood Hills

Variety - - Dirt -

Po­lit­i­cally en­gaged ac­tor Kal Penn, best known as Ku­mar in the hi­lar­i­ously low­brow “Harold & Ku­mar” com­edy film fran­chise, has put a mid- cen­tury con­tem­po­rary on a slim cul- de-sac in a par­tic­u­larly celeb-packed pocket of the Hol­ly­wood Hills up for sale at a tetch un­der $1.5 mil­lion. Penn, who worked in the White House Of­fice of Pu­bic En­gage­ment dur­ing the Obama ad­min­is­tra­tion, has owned the ap­prox­i­mately 1,600-square-foot, steel- gray stucco hill­side home since late 2007, when he scooped it up for close to $1.2 mil­lion. There are two and po­ten­tially three bed­rooms and three bath­rooms.

With shal­low-vaulted ex­posed-beam ceil­ings and honey-blond hard­wood floors through­out, the sin­gle-story res­i­dence sits well above the street atop a sin­gle- car garage be­hind a se­cured en­trance gate at the top of a lengthy stair­way. It’s an­other flight of steps from the gate up to a wide foyer with built-in book­shelves that leads to open- con­cept liv­ing and din­ing spa­ces. Th­ese, in turn, tum­ble out through glass doors to a spa­cious con­crete ter­race that hov­ers in the sur­round­ing tree­tops and wraps around the side of the house to a trel­lis- cov­ered din­ing deck. An off- cen­ter fire­place with a float­ing raised hearth an­chors the liv­ing room; the win­dow-wrapped din­ing area is com­pletely open to a sky­light-topped kitchen that’s ar­ranged around a cen­ter-is­land snack bar with open shelv­ing and up-to- date, av­er­age- qual­ity stain­less steel ap­pli­ances.

One of the two guest bed­rooms is en suite with an or­di­nary bath­room slathered in white ce­ramic tiles. A sec­ond guest bed­room is in­cor­po­rated as a den/of­fice into the bilevel mas­ter suite that addi- tion­ally of­fers a fairly tight and some­what out­dated but well-main­tained and bide­te­quipped bath­room as well as a pe­tite dress­ing area with glass slid­ers to a pri­vate pa­tio and hot tub.
