The weather is cooling, but L.A.’s luxury market is not, as Kristen Schaal just became the latest star to sell their home for more than the asking price. After listing her Los Feliz house for $1.849 million, the actress just sold it for $1.89 million.
Schaal, whose credits include “Bob’s Burgers” and “The Last Man on Earth,” and her husband, former “Daily Show” writer Rich Blomquist, had an offer in hand in two weeks, records show.
In the last few months alone, celebrities who’ve sold their homes for more than they were asking include actor Seth Rogen, singer-songwriter Natasha Bedingfield, “X-Men” star Shawn Ashmore and “Big Mouth” creator Nick Kroll.
Schaal’s place is perched in the hills above Los Feliz Boulevard but below Griffith Park, offering panoramic views of the city below. A variety of outdoor nooks are spread across the leafy grounds including a covered deck, a secluded dining area, a thin stretch of lawn and a lounge with a fountain, fire pit and built-in seating.
