In the Hollywood Hills, a Traditional-style home once owned by Bette Midler is up for sale at $4.48 million.
The 1930s abode has taken on a new look since the Grammy, Tony, Emmy and Golden Globe-winner lived there years ago. Past a crisp white façade punctuated by black plantation shutters, the two-story house opens to 3,200 square feet of personalized living space.
An indoor-outdoor living room under cathedral ceilings is at the heart of the home and features white walls of built-ins and French oak floors. Oversized windows and an angled skylight bring natural light into the space.
Other highlights include a family room with a fireplace, a dining room with French doors and a chef’s kitchen splashed with marble.
A whimsical, sweeping staircase fit for a Dr. Seuss book leads to the second story, which holds the home’s three bedrooms. One bedroom offers a fireplace, another has a private balcony.
Outside, brickwork blankets the tree-lined backyard. A swimming pool, a spa and a grill complete the grounds.
Before the recent remodel, the home last traded hands six years ago for $3.499 million, records show.
Craig White of Douglas Elliman holds the listing.
