“Gossip Girl’s” Kelly Rutherford listed her West Hollywood bungalow for sale or lease in May and ended up leasing it out at $4,700 a month.
Built in 1926, the Spanish-style home includes a sky-lit dining room, an updated kitchen with limestone counters, two bedrooms and 13/4 bathrooms. Outdoors, the deck features a bar, and a built-in barbecue is surrounded by tropical landscaping.
Before her role as Lily van der Woodsen on “Gossip Girl” (2007-present), the 43-year-old actress was in the series “E-Ring” (2005-06) and “Melrose Place” (1996-99).
The house was listed for sale at $1.299 million or for lease at $4,995 a month. Public records show Rutherford purchased the property in 2005 for $1.25 million.
Michelle Ficarra of Rodeo Realty, Beverly Hills, handled both sides of the transaction.
