The new mom and her husband, composer Christopher French, bought a Mediterranean-style Hollywood Hills home just two months ago
Ashley Tisdale has been staying busy with the real estate market: The actress, who purchased a new Mediterranean-style home in the Hollywood Hills in January, recently sold off her villa in L.A.’s Los Feliz neighborhood for $5.78 million, a substantial return given the $4.1 million she paid for it in 2019. The 4,214-square-foot home has undergone significant changes under Tisdale’s ownership, which makes sense, given that, as she told Architectural Digest in 2018, she has an eye for interior design thanks to her father, who worked as a contractor all throughout her childhood. “I grew up with him building all these amazing houses—including Darren Star’s home in Los Angeles—and I missed working together,” she said at the time.
Tisdale, who recently launched her own interior design business, updated the four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bathroom Los Feliz residence with new European oak floors and white subway tile backsplash in the kitchen but kept many of the pad’s original details, including its leaded glass windows and some of the lighting fixtures. One of the home’s most unique features is a fireplace built into a breakfast nook adjacent to the kitchen. “I never thought how nice it is to have a fireplace in your kitchen,” she captioned an Instagram photo a few months back. “Old homes with new charm.”
Much of the property’s charm also lies in the unique color schemes and patterns throughout: a deep teal for the dining room, a denim blue for one of the bathrooms, intricately patterned wallpaper for the front foyer. The main suite features a private covered balcony and a vintage-style bathroom with white marble floors. Out back, there’s a spacious deck, a lounge space with a built-in grill, and a two-story guest house situated next to a large rectangular pool. Tisdale and her husband, composer Christopher French, recently welcomed their first daughter, Jupiter.
