Leonardo DiCaprio buys the home of the “Modern Family” star in Los Angeles for $ 7.1 million

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio recently spent $ 7.1 million on the Los Angeles home Modern family Star Jesse Tyler Ferguson. The elegant mansion in the Spanish colonial style, which previously belonged to the singer Gwen Stefani, is for DiCaprio’s mother Irmelin Indenbirken. A few years ago, he bought a home for his father, George DiCaprio, for $ 4.9 million.

DiCaprio has acquired a real estate portfolio that could make Ellen DeGeneres jealous. Part of his collection: a Los Angeles house he bought from Madonna in the 1990s, a mid-century modern Palm Springs house built for entertainer Dinah Shore, which he bought in 2014, and a house in Malibu for $ 23 million that he bought in 2017.

But not all of his purchases stay in his portfolio. Some are given away to family members. As with many Hollywood stars, where to put their money has always been an issue and many have chosen real estate security.

While some stars have pulled their real estate investments out of California due to high taxes, DiCaprio has the majority of its real estate in the Golden State, with the exception of a New York apartment and an island in Belize. He still lives on his two-story estate on the Sunset Strip – just a 30-minute drive from his parents in Los Feliz.

The closed Spanish colonial house in the Los Feliz neighborhood spans nearly 5,000 square feet with four bedrooms and six bathrooms. The property has formal living and dining rooms with high ceilings and romantic Juliette balconies overlooking each. Built in 1928 and fully updated, the careful execution of the work has kept and enhanced the details of the time, according to TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.

Arched doors, tile roofs and floors, multiple fireplaces, stylish bathrooms, curving stairs, an intricately carved front door, and inlaid ceilings all add to the rustic, chic style. Stained glass windows add color and character. The eat-in kitchen is equipped with all the trimmings that make it both beautiful and functional, and the family room with its folding screen can alternatively be used as a media room.

Almost all rooms open onto landscaped terraces, colorful gardens, courtyards, fountains, and views of the Griffith Observatory. There is also a separate bathroom by the pool and spa and a separate Zen meditation yoga room. Enjoy a guided tour of the property here.

Following the path of other Hollywood A-listers like Scarlett Johansson, Kurt Russell, Keanu Reeves, Anne Hathaway and Ben Affleck, DiCaprio made a Netflix science fiction comedy with Jennifer Lawrence. Don’t look up, which will be released at the end of 2021. The film tells the story of two low-level astronomers who must go on a huge media tour to warn humanity of an approaching comet that will destroy the earth.
