History of the Home
Originally owned by actor Vince Vaughn and purchased in 2019 by Simon Helberg for $6,871,118, this six-bedroom Mediterranean estate captures the beauty and elegance of old-school Hollywood. Located in Los Feliz Oaks, Helberg’s expansive property is a rarity for the Hollywood Hills West neighborhood due to its mostly flat three-quarters of an acre of property. To elevate the charm and appeal of the restored 1920s Spanish Colonial home, a quaint pool and separate guesthouse were added.
Helberg stands to make just over $1.2 million if the house sells for his $8,997,000 listing price. Its outstanding appearance is due in part to Nickey Kehoe, a local interior design firm that also worked with Sarah Paulson to bring color and a unique style to the actress’ Malibu abode.
Old-World Charm with a Modern Touch
Helberg’s sizable estate is enhanced with features like finished French doors, a mix of oak and tile flooring, and light fixtures that bring a blend of modern and old-school personalities to the welcoming home. The spacious floor plan offers ample living space, from the oversized primary bathroom complete with a walk-in shower and custom closet to the naturally flowing halls connecting each pristinely decorated room.
The kitchen is the ideal entertainment space, with a butcher block-topped island, dual sinks, and a built-in oversized refrigerator. The space opens up into a small breakfast nook that overlooks one of the property’s finest features–its outdoor space.
Hints of modern additions are scattered throughout the property, including an invisible speaker system, multi-camera security system, tankless water heater, reverse-osmosis water filtration, and hardwired Internet.
Luxurious Manicured Grounds
The highlight of this classic piece of Hollywood is its outdoor space, which features an outdoor kitchen complete with a fireplace and barbecue that overlook the saltwater pool. A small stretch of flat lawn and flourishing gardens will inspire even the most novice of green thumbs while a terraced hillside offers seating amongst automatic wildflowers and fruit trees.
Onto New Horizons
Helberg and his actress wife Jocelyn Towne occupied the lavished space for just under four years, but it was time for them to move beyond the quiet serenity of the Loz Feliz neighborhood. Where life will take them next is yet to be seen, but the pair’s continued success in TV and movies shows promise for a continued bright future in whatever large space they move into next.
