Nicole Sullivan is selling her Hollywood home that is hidden in the Californian mountains for $1.45 million.
The actress and comedian who is best known for her role on MADtv, Black-ish, and the CBS sitcom The King of Queens, lived with her two sons in the century-old property on Laurel Canyon Boulevard. However, despite its bustling postcode, the property boasts an acre of verdant landscaped land surrounded by bamboo trees that blur the traffic sounds.
Situated in a prime location – but with a countryside ambiance – this treehouse is one of the most unique currently on the market in California, and amongst the world’s best homes.
From its sky-blue-toned living spaces to the elegant white kitchen, the home is a maze of interior design trends that act as a source of decorating inspiration. The entryway leads into an open-plan living room and dining space complete with quaint farmhouse features – including statement ceiling beams and a whitewashed brick fireplace that add a sense of American traditionalism to the space.
Nicole Sullivan has reset white kitchen ideas with her country-style space that pairs white cabinetry alongside a dusty light blue scheme. There is also a butcher block countertop and a traditional stove – all of which are illuminated by the SoCal rays that appear through the adjoining French doors.
The family living room, which leads from the white and blue kitchen, continues to pay homage to current color trends with its turquoise walls and neutral-toned soft furnishings that maintain the subtle scheme.
This palette also flows upstairs to the main bedroom that opens out to a large deck that towers above the large sunroom and party-perfect patio below.
Beyond these spaces, the home’s leafy acre has set the standard for Californian garden ideas – most beautifully through its mature trees that cast shadows on the surrounding stone walls under the nighttime outdoor lighting. There is also a wooden hot tub that is surrounded by bamboo trees and an outdoor living space that showcases the home's red-wooden exterior in all its glory.
The garden similarly boasts access to some of California’s most famous hiking trails that overlook West Hollywood.
