British singer-songwriter Charli XCX is selling her house in the Hollywood Hills. It’s an English Tudor Revival-style home that still looks much the same as it probably did when it was built in the 1920s. It has many of its original details, including diamond-paned windows, dark beamed ceilings, and vintage tile bathrooms.
It was featured in Architectural Digest last year, and Charli (real name: Charlotte Emma Aitchison) told the mag, “It’s funny that I moved across the world and still ended up in an archetype of a British house.”
When asked what drew her to the home, she said, “I liked that this was an old place and immediately loved it. I love the dark wood. I love that it’s a little creepy and weird. It just felt really right for me.”
It’s on the market for $3.65 million. Take a look!

The gated community dates back to the 1920s in what was originally called Hollywoodland,
sitting below the iconic Hollywood sign.
According to the Daily Mail, “The singer moved into the house after relocating from London to LA in 2015,
inviting three childhood friends from the UK to live with her.”
