Fit for a Queen? “Game of Thrones” Star Lists Mid-Century Home
Why, it hardly looks like the home of an evil queen.
In fact, with its classic mid-century modern lines and minimalist decor, the house owned by “Game of Thrones” star Lena Headey exudes the taste and sensibility of someone far more cool and reasonable than the incestuous character Queen Cersei.
You can judge for yourself, now that Headey has listed the Beverly Glen house for $1.395 million. It’s an interesting price drop from the $1.685 million Headey paid for the 3-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom home in 2008.
Of course, much has happened since then, including a real estate market implosion and the cult-like following that “Game of Thrones” has won since its debut in 2011, not to mention the bevy of awards for which the show and cast have been nominated.
Maybe she wants to give up Hollywood for the mythical “Thrones” land of Westeros, who knows? But given the desirable style of the home, not to mention the star quality of its owner, no doubt the place will attract buyers — or at least curiosity seekers, especially those who will appreciate the clean, modern space in the prime Los Angeles neighborhood.
With 2,500 square feet set on a quarter acre, Headey’s home boasts separate living room and dining area with walls of glass, bamboo floors, fireplace and cocktail bar that are perfect for entertaining. The listing reads like rave reviews — which is fitting given the kudos Headey and her “Thrones” co-stars have been racking up.
The gorgeous well-appointed gourmet kitchen with stainless steel appliances opens to a grand media/family room with Terrazzo floors and skylights for a relaxed and fun hangout. The amazing master retreat has dual vanities, a spa tub, a separate shower stall and walk-in closet. This sun filled home with many architectural details has walls of glass and sliders from all living areas and bedrooms which allow a seamless transition to the private and tranquil exterior entertaining areas including a grassy yard.
