It’s probably safe to say that Chris Pratt and Anna Faris are doing better at life than most of us. Chris is the critically acclaimed star of the hit show “Parks and Recreation”, and is the star of blockbuster films like “Guardians Of The Galaxy” and “Jurassic World”; Anna starred in “The House Bunny”, “Scary Movie”, and is the main player on sitcom “Mom”; they’re also both happily married…to each other. Yes folks, they’re what we in the gossip industry call a “power couple”, and they’re a hilarious, handsome, and very likeable one at that. “Fratt”, as they’ll someday be called when they both get just a little more famous, is ruling the world right now, and they’re doing it from a lovely castle in the Hollywood Hills section of Los Angeles, California.
Okay, so it’s not a real castle, but it might as well be, because it’s a great house fit for a king and queen. The two Washington natives purchased the home in 2013 for $3.3 million, which was well above the $2.975 million that was originally asked (we smell bidding war). The 4,710 square foot home was formerly owned by Live Nation CEO Michael Rapino, and sits just above Nichols Canyon in what’s been described as “an ultra-private gated compound”. It features four bedrooms, three and a half bathrooms, an awesome outdoor gym, a saltwater pool, a three-car garage, a barbeque patio, vaulted ceilings, a turret entry, and a serious security system that should give the low key couple plenty of privacy. The whole compound is about half an acre and it’s really great. It’s not too extravagant and doesn’t seem like a waste of space. Sure, it’s big, but it’s “rich family with kids” big, not “let’s waste ten million bucks and ten thousand square feet because I want people to know I have money” big. We’re always fans of celebrities who make relatively modest real estate choices, so we love everything about this home. As the two get bigger and bigger in Hollywood, the privacy that this place affords should make their lives way easier, and as they pop out more kids, the space should come in handy as well. Great purchase Chris and Anna, we wish you many good years in your California pad!
