Looks like Colin Farrell wasted no time finding a new pad after selling his longtime Los Feliz home. Dirt reports that the Banshees of Inisherin actor sold his 1920s Mediterranean villa-style house of 17 years in an off-market deal for $5.3 million, then signed the deed on another 1920s-built home in the neighborhood, a larger Spanish Revival-style compound, for $5.9 million.
The former, which the Lobster star spent $4.3 million on back in 2006, is a 3,938-square-foot four-bedroom and four-bathroom home set on a quarter-acre lot on a winding hillside street. Photos and details of the property are few and far between, but street view photography reveals a sandy-hued stucco exterior tucked behind olive trees, topped with brown curved roof tiles, and featuring intricate tiles and scrolling wrought iron details near the front door. While the street level opens to the top floor of the home, the back of the hillside structure adds more stories, plus a patio, infinity-edge pool, and an outdoor kitchen.
Considerably more details about the Beguiled actor’s new pad are publicly available. That house was formerly owned by Frank Lloyd, a film director who was one of the original founders of the Motion Picture Academy. Spanning 5,200 square feet with five bedrooms and six bathrooms, the gated white stucco home still has tons of its original charm, plus a lot more outdoor space than Farrell’s freshly sold property–and a guest house and a poolside cabana.
The historic dwelling, which offers views of the ocean and Downtown LA, opens into a small foyer with a stone mosaic floor and a unique chandelier that appears to be an original brass fixture. Deeper into the home, a spacious formal living room has arched doorways and an original fireplace. Other interior highlights include a blue-carpeted movie theater, an old-world-style wine cellar, and a primary suite with beamed and vaulted wood ceilings, dual bathrooms, and a massive walk-in closet.
