In the new movie Black Swan, 39-year old Winona Ryder plays an aging ballet dancer who finds herself getting pushed aside for a new rising star, played by Natalie Portman. In my mind, Ryder should still be 25, so it’s odd to see her playing the role of an “aging” anything. She played Spock’s mother in the 2009 Star Trek movie, too, another part that made me do a double-take.
She’s selling her 1930s Spanish Villa in L.A. for $3.95 million, and I thought it would be fun to take a look.
The curved windows are one of the major selling points for me in this house:
The kitchen is surprisingly small and unpretentious for a movie star’s:
Has anyone seen Black Swan yet? I was eager to until I read a review that said, “It’ll give you nightmares!” Nightmares? Not something I really want to sign up for, but I’m still curious about it. If you’ve seen it, what did you think?
The mural around the upstairs landing is attention-grabbing, but I’m in love with the window, the old light fixture, and that railing that looks original to the house:
There are 4 bedrooms and 4 baths:
Another great window–and this one has a window seat, too! I’d spend all of my time right there:
This Art Deco bathroom looks original with the pink and blue tile. I think it’s kind of refreshing that she didn’t demolish it and replace everything with more modern fixtures. I have a feeling the next owner might, though. Would you?
What do you think? Love the house or leave it?
