Ted Raimi Sheds Shabby Toluca Lake Com­pound

Variety - - Dirt -

A de­cid­edly frumpy and ar­guably dumpy mi­cro-com­pound along an unas­sum­ing but tree-shaded street on the north­ern bor­der of Los An­ge­les’ af­flu­ent and celeb-fa­vored Toluca Lake com­mu­nity has been sold by ac­tor Ted Raimi for $967,000 — a bit be­low its $979,000 ask­ing price. The “Xena: War­rior Princess” star, who popped up in his brother Sam Raimi’s block­buster “Spi­der-man” tril­ogy, ac­quired the four-struc­ture prop­erty, which is ripe with up­side, just over 10 years ago for $810,000.

The four build­ings that com­prise the less than quar­ter-acre com­pound in­clude a slightly more than 1,400-square-foot, street-fac­ing mid- cen­tury ranch-style cot­tage all but hid­den be­hind a white picket fence. The cot­tage has three bed­rooms and two small bath­rooms. Lus­trous dark hard­woods and a brick-ac­cented fire­place ground the liv­ing room. An ad­join­ing com­pact din­ing nook is di­vided from a dated, gal­ley-style kitchen by a snack counter.

Three ad­di­tional struc­tures clus­tered around a swim­ming pool and in­ter­spersed among more than a dozen fruit trees of var­i­ous va­ri­eties in­clude a stu­diostyle of­fice/guest­house, a pint-size game room and a charm­ingly rus­tic en­ter­tain­ment pav­il­ion.
