Kristen Wiig has one fewer resolution to check off in the new year. The actress of “Saturday Night Live” fame has sold a Silver Lake home she owned in a trust for $5.225 million, or $100,000 over the asking price, records show.

The Midcentury Modern-style house, which dates to 1954, is named the Martin Residence for architect Albert P. Martin.

Set up from the street on a sloping hillside, the two-story house opens through a red front door to a great room. Original sconces, oyster-colored cement floors and a concrete-block fireplace are among character details of the renovated and restored home. Walls of floor-to-ceiling windows bring in views from the front and back.


The 3,515-square-foot floor plan also holds an office, a light-filled kitchen, a den, three bedrooms and three bathrooms. A movie theater, reached by a sliding wood wall, is a new addition.

A separate guest space holds a studio and a sauna.

Outside, wrap-around decking surveys the Silver Lake Reservoir. There’s also an infinity-edge swimming pool with a spa.

Wiig, 45, was a fixture on “Saturday Night Live” from 2005-12. Since then, the actress has starred in such films as “Skeleton Twins,” “Ghostbusters,” “Masterminds” and “Downsizing.”

She bought the house four years ago for $1.7 million, records show.
