If you're looking for a property that blends interior spaces taken straight from city lofts, all in a suburban setting, then actor, screenwriter and producer Vince Vaughn's La Canada Flintridge home might be worth a look. The house just went on the market for $5.29 million.
The Colonial style home is tucked behind a gate, but a wide and spacious lawn welcomes visitors who make it up the drive. From the moment a visitor steps inside the main foyer of the 5,563-square-foot home, it is clear that the property is all about sleek sophistication, more so than the type of colonial with bric-a-bracs staged everywhere. Light pours into the five-bedroom, six bathroom home from the abundance of small-paned windows throughout the property.
Highly buffed, dark wood floors flow through the main common areas, and provide ample contrast to the white walls and elegant carpentry throughout the first floor. It is hard to miss a guy like Vaughn in a crowd scene, so it is easy to imagine him as the focal point in a kitchen area that stretches from the butler's pantry, with its granite countertops, to the main eat-in kitchen area, with its island prep counter, and two island dining spots. Finally, the main eating area abuts a window that offers views of the sprawling neighborhood beyond the lawns.
The first floor also includes two parlor areas, ensuring space for everyone who wants to sit down for an intimate chat at a party. The backyard offers a tennis court and swimming pool, to accommodate those with a competitive, athletic streak.
The La Canada Flintridge home isn't the only Vaughn property in play. As he reshuffles his portfolio, Vaughn also has a boss Chicago penthouse on the market for $13.9 million, just off the Magnificent Mile. Last year, he supposedly bought a 7,000-square-foot mansion in Manhattan Beach, and took actress Kate Bosworth's Hollywood Hills home off her hands.
