Hot off the presses from the always informative Lauren Beale at LA Times Hot Property comes word of Hayden Christensen's Studio City home for sale at $2,495,000. Mr. Christensen is a Canadian born actor who gained fame with his popular role as "Anakin Skywalker" and later "Darth Vader" in George Lucas' Star Wars Episode II and III (I wonder if Hayden knows that the original ILM studios were started in nearby Van Nuys).
The home measures 5 Bed/5 Baths on 6,302sqft on a total lot size of 0.78 acres built in 1990. This home has a modern-contemporary architectural style which I unfortunately dont know who is the architect.
According to the listing:
Celebrity owned Architectural Modern with 6300 sq ft on 3/4 acre. Linen white gallery walls, sisal carpets & rich walnut floors. Step down liv rm w/ fireplace, high ceilings + French doors open to large private flat yard. Formal dining room, large open gourmet kit/family room w/ fireplace opens to pool and rear yard. 2nd floor family rm w/ fireplace, 3 bdrms all opening to view terraces with spa. Entire 3rd floor lavish master suite with elevator, views, fplce, large bath w/ his/hers areas, elevated tub + double walk in closets. Great outdoor entertainment areas w/ salt water pool, spa, 2 enclosed flat yards , mature trees + oversize 3 car garage.
This home was last purchased on September 22, 2003 for $1,425,000 which the property records indicate was actually purchased by Hayden's brother, Tove Christensen, who is also an actor and film producer. Based on the current asking price if it sold, which has already been reduced by $155,000, would net Tove a profit of $1,070,000 before taxes, commissions, carrying costs, and any other expenses associated with the property. Not sure where the Christensen brothers are heading off to but maybe they are seeking independence as they get older.
