Owner: Orlando Bloom
Location: Outpost Estates, Hollywood Hills, CA
Listing Price: $4,500,000
4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms
This beautiful 3/4 acre, private compound belongs to Hollywood A-lister, Orlando Bloom. The home is located in the famed Outpost Estates – a well known celebrity hood in a great location in the Hollywood Hills. [Michael C. Hall sold his place in Outpost Estates earlier this year] Bloom purchased the home in 2007 for $2,750,000 according to public records. In 2009, the home was broken into by the famous Hollywood “Bling Ring” robbers, and apparently it hasn’t felt like home to the Bloom’s since – they’ve been renting the property out since August for around $16,500.
Enter the property through a wooden gate and work your way up the winding driveway to a large, flat pad for parking. When you walk up to the front of the house – you’ll enter through the impressive Walnut double doors and into a bright foyer with walls of glass.
The one-story home offers large windows and warm, hardwood floors that make the space feel tranquil and homey. The fireplace in the living room is great for those cool, rainy winter evenings, while the french doors that open out to the grounds create that desirable indoor/outdoor flow.
The kitchen comes complete with custom cherry and walnut finished and beamed, vaulted ceilings and plenty of room for an eat-in dining table or sitting area.
Step outdoors to enjoy the lush foliage and mature landscaping that surrounds a dining patio with built-in barbecue – fit for a Medieval king, and accessorized with a patio table that will leave King Arthur swooning. It looks like Bloom, who’s probably best known for his work as the sharp-shooting Legolas in the popular Lord of the Rings trilogy, takes home some decorating tips from the set designers. That table is seriously intimidating, but works well for the outdoor space.
The master suite opens out to the expansive pool area – including a swim machine, spa and waterfall feature. You’ll feel totally protected with the closed circuit security camera system spread throughout the property which helps lend towards peace of mind on such a high-profile, expansive property.
Quaint gardens and a beautiful loggia for afternoon tea or evening city light views bring this property full circle, and close the gap between nature and modern sophistication and convenience.
