Back on April 21, 2014, the fine folks at Trulia Luxe Living revealed that Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey purchased a Sherman Oaks home for $790,000 on April 4, 2014.
Headey has been acting since the age of 17 first appearing in the 1992 film, Waterland. About one year ago, Headey publicly disclosed she has been going through some financial difficulties claiming she had "less than $5" in her bank account. Additionally, Headey divorced in 2012 from husband, Peter Loughran, and at the same time, had to fight for half of her $46,000 2011 tax return from her ex-husband. And on top of all this, Headey sold her Laurel Canyon home that was purchased in June 2008 in late 2012 at a $336,000 loss not including expenses.
So its nice to Headey make a nice comeback and purchase this Sherman Oaks home although its a somewhat modest home for a celebrity. The home retains some nice original character and charm that I hope Headey doesnt tear it all apart. I guess we will find out in a couple of years when the time comes to sell.
The home measures 3 Beds/3 Baths on 1,808 sqft on a total lot size of 6,744 sqft built in 1951. The listing description states:
Located in the coveted ' Hidden Woods' neighborhood of Sherman Oaks. This one of a kind traditional home with a mid-century modern twist sits on a beautiful & quiet tree shaded street surrounded by other lovely homes! Spacious, bright and airy with a good floor plan and great 'bones'. The good sized kitchen conveniently opens to the family room and wet bar for easy entertaining!

Wonderful opportunity for the new buyers to make it their own and settle in to one of the best neighborhoods Sherman Oaks has to offer.You can view more SFV Celeb R.E. here.
