Superhero Actor Chris Evans Wins Bidding War for Hollywood Hills Home
Apparently this is the place Captain America would live, or rather, the place the actor playing him would.
Chris Evans, best known for playing Captain America in “Captain America: The First Avengers” and “The Avengers” has purchased a new home in Hollywood Hills for $3.52 million, The Real Estalker reports.
According to property records, the superhero actor fought in a bit of a bidding war. The home was first sold for $1.9 million in June 2012 to what appears to be a company that flipped the home in less than a year, listing it in February for $3.5 million. Evans paid the extra $20,000 to ensure the updated, 1940-built home was his.
Sitting above Laurel Canyon, the home is completely walled and gated, marketed as a ”great celebrity or executive enclave experience.” Measuring 4,599 square feet, the house has 3 bedrooms, 4 baths, a pool and spa. Updates include a master suite featuring a dressing room with separate laundry, radiant heat and a bathroom with a soaking tub and steam shower lined with limestone and Italian Calcutta marble. The kitchen has high-end appliances as well as Italian marble counters.
Time will tell whether Evans will sell his existing Hollywood Hills residence, which he purchased in 2007 for $1.26 million. The Massachusetts native is currently preparing to reprise his famed role in “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” next year. He’s also busy off-screen rekindling his romance with “Friday Night Lights” actress Minka Kelly.
