Rooney Mara finally found a buyer for her enviably chic Los Angeles home after more than a full year on the market – and the new owner could very well be Kelly Osbourne. According to tax records, the buyer of Mara’s 2,340-square-foot midcentury-style home was a trust linked to a property previously owned by Osbourne. If true, it would give the home quite the lineage: Mara originally purchased the home from Big Little Lies star Alexander Skarsgård in early 2015 for $2.9 million. Mara sold off her Los Feliz home for $3.575 million, slightly over her final asking price of $3.45 million (she had originally listed it for $3.895 million in May 2017).
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom home is nothing short of stunning: Designed by architect Phil Brown and built in 1963, it is a steel-and-glass structure that sits on a nearly quarter-acre at the end of a cul-de-sac in the celeb-friendly Oaks neighborhood in Los Angeles. The open floor plan is designed with an optimal indoor-outdoor space in mind, with a living room and lounging area anchored by a fireplace, opening out onto a formal dining area with an adjacent kitchen. Walls of windows allow in plenty of natural light, and the mint-green theme throughout the space almost gives the home an otherworldly, underwater feel. The sliders open out onto a wraparound deck that provides pristine views of the city below.
The master suite also reflects Mara’s love for all things light and airy, with glass sliders leading out onto the backyard, and an en suite bathroom with a vanity, a glass-enclosed shower, and a closet; the cabinets in both the bedroom and the bathroom are a faint powder blue. In addition to the other bedroom, most likely used as a guest room, Mara’s home also features an office space for reading or work. Outside, the deck also boasts views of the mountains and even the ocean. All this is to say that if Osbourne truly is the new owner of the home, she’s in for a whole lot of glorious sunshine.
