Kristen Wiig’s $5.1 Million Silverlake Home Is a Midcentury Modern Dream

By Christie Calucchia

Kristen Wiig’s Silverlake, California home is an architecture enthusiast’s dream. Designed by Albert P. Martin in the 1950s, the home—more accurately described as a tree house—sits perched atop the hills and among lush greenery on a sloped piece of land. Despite its stunningly modern architectural details and sweeping views, Wiig recently listed the estate for $5.125 million, Variety reports.

The interiors simply ooze midcentury modern elements, from the light wood-panel ceilings and floors to its sharp lines and furniture of the era. After undergoing extensive restorations, not only does the California-cool property boast its original three-bedroom, three-bath layout, but now also features an additional deck, pool, and guest house spanning roughly 1000 square feet. The renovated addition includes its own bedroom, bathroom, and living room that leads directly outside.
