Alexandra Daddario already owns an elegant mansion in Hancock Park, but the Porsche ambassador and ‘The White Lotus’ star has decided to take on another real estate project. Records reveal that Daddario and her new husband Andrew Form bought a mid-century modern repairman in the leafy hills of Brentwood, on the Westside of Los Angeles.
Originally built in the 1950s by famed modernist architect Allen Siple, the post-and-beam structure sits on a quiet street high in the hills, tucked away down a long driveway shared with another house. The property debuted on the market earlier this year to much fanfare, asking for just under $8.7 million. Still, Daddario and Form, a movie producer (“Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Friday the 13th”), were able to snag the spot for a cut-price $7.6 million.
Sometime in the 90s, the house was remodeled and expanded via a two-story addition. As such, the current spaces are an unusual mix of dated eras and design trends; the sky-lit kitchen has granite countertops and burnt yellow cabinetry, carpet anchors both the master bedroom and bath, there are red Japanese-style entry doors, and the great room offers a wooden ceiling with an original brick and stone fireplace.
In total, the rambling structure features three bedrooms and four bathrooms in nearly 5,000 square feet of living space, plus a detached three-car garage – all tightly surrounded by overgrown gardens, a lagoon style adjoining a thatched cabana, and a canopy of mature eucalyptus trees. Glass walls provide picturesque views of the canyon, and on a clear day the Pacific Ocean is visible.
It’s not yet clear what Daddario and Form plan to do with their new outpost in Brentwood, but we think the right architect and design team could give the premises a full makeover that would make it one of the gems. the brightest of these hills.
And in addition to this project and his current residence in Hancock Park, Daddario recently sold an apartment in New York and a modest bungalow in the heart of Los Angeles’ Beachwood Canyon.
