Carey Mulligan and husband and Mumford & Sons frontman, Marcus Mumford have brought their four bedroom, five and a half bathroom Spanish-revival home overlooking West Hollywood’s Sunset Strip back to the market for $6.495 million.
The home, built in 1928 in West Hollywood, is modeled in the Spanish-revivalist style that swept California in the early 20th century, and while the home’s exterior certainly harks back to that period—all creamy white walls, terracotta roof tiles, and plumes of crimson bougainvillaea reaching over arched entrances—the inside of the home tells a much more contemporary story. White-washed walls and huge open windows give the home an openness, while wide timber floorboards in honey blonde offer a sense of warmth that permeates throughout the airy, bright space.
While the home’s décor errs closer to a coastal feel than that of its Spanish heritage, there is a subtle nod to its roots to be found in the kitchen. Navy blue cabinetry is juxtaposed with warm wooden accents, while the splashback, covered in starburst patterned tiles reminiscent of those typical of a Spanish villa, are perhaps one of the few details internally that pay homage to the home’s architectural inspiration.
Spread across three stories, all but one of the home’s bedrooms are situated on the home’s top floor, with the final bedroom housed on the property’s lowest level, opening out to a lounge-turned-screening room—a helpful addition when there’s a movie star in the house. The lower level also leads outdoors to an alfresco kitchen, where diners can perch around the dining table and peer through dramatic arch ways through to the pool area—outdoor entertaining at its finest. And to top it well and truly off, above this spectacular kitchen sits a recording studio—installed by the home’s previous owner, songwriter and producer Freddy Wexler—which we wager would’ve been quite the drawcard for Mumford.
