Couple plays $600,000 over the asking price for custom-built home
Actress Connie Britton, of White Lotus, Nashville, Friday Night Lights and American Horror Story fame, and her partner David E. Windsor, a writer and producer, recently bought a new home in Santa Monica as reported by The Dirt.com
The home was a hot property and Britton and Windsor were involved in a bidding war that led to them winning with an offer that was $600,000 more than the original listing price of $5.6 million. Britton and Windsor each hold a fifty percent stake in the ownership of the property. The estate is a custom build designed by Dub Studios, an architectural firm, for the founder of the Tastemade video network, Larry Fitzgibbon, according to city records. The lot on which the home sits is a whopping 8,000 square feet in one of the garden areas of Santa Monica. It’s a two-story building chock full of the most current amenities and bespoke furnishings and trims.
If privacy is what you want, this house is perfect for you, since it has a huge hedge to shield the residents from any cameras or nosy neighbors. The entryway of the home is somewhat intimidating and has a custom-made door made of unusual hardwood source. This is another open space house with the entire first floor as one big room. Within the space, you can find built-in niches where you can eat dinner, cook, relax or just sit. The kitchen is one that any chef would envy fitted with Liebherr and Wolf appliances and features an eat-in island and stylish and retro banquette where you can eat breakfast. Right next to the foyer is an extra room that could easily serve as an office or a guest bedroom.
On the second floor, you can find the other three bedrooms. Two of the smaller bedrooms share one of the bathrooms on that floor and the master bedroom takes up the rest of the considerable space with its ensuite sumptuous bathroom with a steam shower and soaking tub. The suite also has its balcony with jasmine plants that scent the air and a walk-in closet.
The backyard features a dining patio that has a cobblestone floor made of “decomposed granite”, more large hedges, and a garden made for our drought-ridden climate.
