Dirt: Morgan Evandell Gets More Than He Asked For


David, Mark, Variety


Veteran entertainment industry exec Morgan Wandell, formerly a bigwig at ABC Studios and now heading drama development for up-and-coming Amazon Studios, has sold a 1920s Mediterranean on a quiet cul-de-sac just above L.A.'s Los Feliz Boulevard for $3,192,500 - a figure otherwise notable to avid real estate market watchers as being nearly $200,000 more than the asking price.

The renovated and restored 4,888-square-foot residence,_ designed by quirky architect A.F. Leicht, retains oodles of original features, such as rounded rooms and curvaceous Art Nouveau-esque windows, along with a bevy of newfangled creature comforts: There's a turntable in the floor of the garage that conveniently turns a Parked car around at the touch of a button. High and sinuously coved ceilings in the formal living room complement a massive mosaic-tiled fireplace, while a fully equipped vintage bar off the dining room seamlessly facilitates both preand post-dinner cocktails. An irregularly shaped center-island kitchen has all the usual high-grade stainless steel appliances usually found in L.A.'s $3 million houses, plus an idiosyncratic semicircular breakfast bay with built-in banquette seating.

Four en suite bedrooms include an unusually ample bi-level master suite comprised of bedroom, separate sitting room with fireplace, and an attached bathroom, where an oval jetted tub sits directly under an identically scaled oval skylight. The terraced grounds have numerous flagstone terraces for dining and lounging - one with a stout, outdoor fireplace - as well as a swimming pool and spa with elevated sunbathing patio.

JOEL KINNAMAN SNAGS SUNSET STRIP DIGS

It was Yolanda Yakketyyak, with her mysterious celebrity real estate ways, who first tattled to this eager-eared property gossip that uncommonly comely Swedish-born actor Joel Kinnaman - currently co-starring on "The Killing" - surreptitiously shelled out $2.45 million (via trust) for a revamped, 1970s mock-Med abode high in the hills above the Sunset Strip.

The two-story residence spans 2,542 square feet, according to marketing materials, with three city-view bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms uniformly slathered in identical turn bled stone tiles. The wood-floored, open-concept main living space has huge windows, beams across the ceiling, a concrete-faced catty-corner fireplace - one of three in the house - and a column-flanked sitting area just off the kitchen and dining area.

Many houses in the steep hills above the Sunset Strip lack proper yard space, but Mister Kinnaman's new crib has an unusually large and flat grassy yârd with stonetiled terraces, a plunge-sized swimming pool and tree-framed dews that extend to the towers of Century City and - on a particularly clear day - the Pacific Ocean.
