Molly Parker, best known for her killer performance as shrewd congresswoman Jackie Sharp on House of Cards, is parting ways with her sweet, one-story Echo Park bungalow—a property she’s owned for 13 years, according to Variety. Compass holds the listing.
Long before she was nominated for her Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama Series Emmy in 2016, the former Deadwood star purchased her hillside home for $580,000 back in 2004. It is now being listed for a cool $900,000, thanks to its welcoming floor plan and homey finishes.
The 1920s Spanish-style bungalow
is truly an artist’s oasis, as it’s away from all the hustle and bustle of central LA. Enveloped by a terraced yard and patio area, the home’s 1,300 square feet
sits above the road, containing two bedrooms and one bathroom. The main space is a light-filled living and dining area, complete with a cozy wood-burning fireplace and hilltop views.
Butcher block countertops border the quaint galley-style kitchen that feels way bigger than it is, thanks to its wall of windows. A restored antique range gives the eat-in space the same character and charm that flows throughout the entire abode, while a shiplap ceiling, hardwood floors, and black and white ceramic tiles add to the space’s vintage, yet modern feel.
The simple, monochromatic master bedroom makes the most of every square foot, with built-in cabinetry and a surprisingly spacious walk-in closet. The cushioned, built-in banquette and dressing area boast French doors that open up to a stunning wraparound porch.
Much like this #SODomino bedroom, Parker’s master suite features a classic wood headboard as the focal point, which pairs nicely with the hardwood floors. Minimal artwork has been used as another great way to add some decor without making the relaxing space feel too overwhelming.
Nestled on the hillside, the detached artist’s studio will serve as the ultimate creative space for the home’s new owner. With potential for the free-standing cabana structure to become a yoga or meditation studio, artist’s alcove, or possible guest space, the tiny, shed-style building has a lot to offer.
Outside, the terraced yard is tranquil, with raised bed planters and a lush patch of lawn. And if you still need more outdoor space, know that the home is located only a short distance away from both hiking trails and Elysian Park. And who knows? You might even hear the fans cheering from nearby Dodger Stadium.
