Actor-director-screenwriter James Franco has sold a duplex in the Silver Lake neighborhood of Los Angeles for $1.35 million. That’s $401,000 above his asking price and nearly double what he paid for the property five years ago — $775,000.
The Spanish-style structure, built in 1923, has a total of two bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,496 square feet of living space. There are raised ceilings, exposed beams, arched windows and a fireplace in one of the bedrooms. A top-floor “crow’s nest” allows city light and landmark views through a wall of picture windows.
Outside, the hillside property has gardens and a path leading to a small patio/lookout. Another patio sits above the carport.
Andrew Morrison of Redwood Real Estate Brokerage was the listing agent. Imraan Ali of Compass represented the buyer.
