Kristen Wiig bids adieu to Midcentury Modern home in Silver Lake

By Neal J. Leitereg

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.
