Sometimes, the best way to get over a hard breakup is to purge all of the things (and all of the places) that remind you of your former significant other. Since splitting with her husband Chris Pratt just this past year, leading funny lady Anna Faris has made a number of major changes in her life—including spearheading her own podcast and traveling the globe with a rumored new beau.
But now, the actress is ready to make the biggest change of all: moving house. According to Trulia, the Scary Movie star has listed the scenic Hollywood Hills abode she once shared with soon-to-be ex Pratt to the tune of $2.5 million. Mimi Starrett of Pacific Union International currently holds the listing.
While we’re guessing Faris’ recent split probably played a major role in her decision to let the home go, this isn’t actually the first time the Maryland native has listed the home: The duo also tried to sell the abode back in 2013 for $2.3 million. Perhaps this time around, she’ll find more success.
Nestled within a quiet cul-de-sac in Nicholas Canyon, the mod three-bedroom, three-bathroom pad is surrounded by lush greenery and dense trees, offering total seclusion from nosey paparazzi and crazed fans. While the mid-century home boasts a number of charming details inside, the one-story gem is really all about outdoor living.
Talk about a seriously cool backyard: Made with a master entertainer in mind, the House Bunny actress’ serene outdoor spread has us dreaming of late night dips and star-studded barbecues. Thanks to the home’s almost exclusively glass walls, the estate’s new owners will be able to enjoy uninterrupted views of their tropical-inspired oasis whenever—and wherever—they please.
While the lagoon-like pool certainly serves as the focal point of the one-acre lot, a bonus hangout spot—hidden from view—sits just above the swimming area.
Family game night, anyone? Wood plank stairs lead to a second stone patio, where a sandy bocce court and luxe lounge area await. Again, sky high trees and the canyon’s naturally hilly surround mean residents can put their bocce skills to the test in total privacy. A chilled bottle of California wine and laidback tunes are all you need to complete this dreamy, al fresco scene.
Inside the 2,563-square-foot house (built in 1950), hardwood floors and exposed beams are consistent features. The spacious living room (which overlooks the swimming pool) offers endless decorating opportunities. Whether you’re pro mid-century design or all for a vibrant boho aesthetic, this is a space you can easily make your own—no matter your style.
Elsewhere, an all-white, updated kitchen (with an abundance of storage space) also serves as a blank canvas.
While the charming master bedroom falls on the small side (well, at least by celebrity standards), sliding glass doors add instant square footage to the space, and also contribute to the home’s overall indoor-outdoor living approach.
Just off Faris’ peaceful dwelling sits a large, spa-like master bathroom fit for a day of personal pampering.
