Five years after her death, Debbie Reynolds’ former home in Los Angeles has been listed for $ 2.1 million.
The deceased’s Singin ‘in the Rain’ actress’ three-bedroom, three-bathroom home in Valley Village spans 2,000 square feet of oak floors, French doors and wood-beamed ceilings.
“Architecture embodies what I love about the Los Angeles architecture of today. Style, character and craftsmanship. This home has a very European look with aspects of a proper Tudor property and an English garden house combined. It hits all the right notes, ”noted broker Greg Holcombe with Douglas Elliman, Pasadena, to The Post.
The most special feature of the property is an “elevated mini tower” next to the main bedroom. Vintage stained glass windows create a unique space that Reynolds is said to have used as a salon, according to Holcombe.
“I think my most favorite thing about the house is a raised circular enclave in the main bedroom suite. “I was told this was where Debbie kept her piano and used the room as a salon to entertain friends,” Holcombe told The Post.
The house, built in 1929, has been updated with a modern kitchen and bathrooms whilst retaining the English country garden style.
“The home has the unique pedigree of original architecture, Hollywood history and an aesthetic that is very beautiful,” Holcombe said.
The 0.2-hectare plot has mature pine trees, a brick courtyard, a cabana, a saltwater swimming pool, a bocce court and a lemon grove. Private gardens have white roses and lavender.
“Something I love about the property is that it has the characteristics of a large mansion, but is scaled down to a manageable life,” Holcombe said.
Reynolds bought the home for $ 220,000 in 1987. “Orange Is the New Black” actress Amanda Fuller and her husband, Matthew Bryan Feld, bought the home for $ 1.84 million after Reynolds’ death.
Reynolds had not lived in the house for 15 years before her death, but instead lived in a $ 18 million home with her daughter, “Star Wars” actress Carrie Fisher, who died of a heart attack on a plane. Fuller and Bryan renovated the house during their time there.
Reynolds died in 2016 of a stroke the day after her daughter died. She also had a son, Todd Fisher, with her ex-husband, Eddie Fisher.
Reynolds’ granddaughter, Billie Lourd, recently opened up about the “brutal” loss mourning her mother and grandmother that was shown in an HBO documentary together shortly after their deaths.
In Reynolds’ later years, she was known for roles in the 1973 film “Charlotte’s Web”, “1998 Kiki’s Delivery Service” and “Halloweentown” and the NBC comedy “Will & Grace”.
After her death, her property sold many of her other valuable assets, including a Norman Rockwell painting and other memorabilia. Her dance studio has become a museum, and her childhood home sold for $ 749,000 in 2017.
