Tobey Maguire Sells His Santa Monica Mini-Compound for $3.325 Million After Divorce News
Inside Tobey Maguire's Unique L.A. Compound
A Serial Flipper
Maguire purchased the home only a year ago for $2.675 million and was asking $2.995 million for the three-bedroom three-bath residence. This is not the actor's first foray into house flipping: He and Meyer sold their Brentwood estate for $10.25 million in 2014, less than a year after buying it.
The property includes multiple structures in a unique mash-up of architectural styles. The original 1920s bungalow faces the street, while a two-story, modern-meets-Spanish-style volume rises behind it. The collection of spaces add up to 2,400 square feet.
Moving On Up
Maguire worked with architect Ruben Ojeda to renovate the home, according to Trulia. The ceilings throughout were raised to create soaring, light-filled spaces, or in the case of this bedroom, a unique wood-lined barrel vault.
The kitchen is unusually modest for a recently updated (not to mention movie-star-owned) home. The warm-toned wood cabinetry reads especially mid-century in style when paired with a bright green floor.
The second-story addition features a modern outdoor living space made of concrete and a wood-trellis roof.
A Surprise Out Back
A separate, 1,200-square-foot, two-story structure at the rear of the property currently serves as a hang-out space, including a ping-pong table and upstairs lounge. A third outbuilding on the lot houses a gym.
