Per the Los Angeles Times, Wainwright purchased the 1920’s home—hidden behind trees and tall hedges—in Hollywood Hills West for $1.45M.
The recently remodeled kitchen offers custom oak cabinetry, broken stone flooring, and an openbreakfast nook
with banquette seating.
The sunny dining room is outfitted in wooden plank ceilings and picture windows with diamond grilles.
The 2,100 square-foot space features hardwood floors, rolled ceilings, exposed beams and a brick fireplace.
A curved staircase leads to the two guest suites, as well as the master suite, which offers a walk-in closet and wraparound window with sweeping views of the mountains.
Meanwhile, the upper-level office is dressed in classic crown moldings and built-in bookcases.
Outside the property you’ll find a fairytale-esque wooden bridge crossing over a stream and two separate entertaining patios. No wonder the Canadian crooner chose this whimsical place for his LA outpost.
