NBC’s “Once Upon a Time” star, Ginnifer Goodwin, decided to say goodbye to her Spanish villa-style home. The four times nominated People’s Choice Award actress and her husband, the “Once Upon a Time” co-star Josh Dallas, realized the two-story residence wasn’t big enough for their family, that got two more members since they purchased the property back in 2008. While choosing a house in Bel-Air, which is twice as big as her Hollywood home, a former “Big Love” star lists her 2,204 square feet for $1,499,000. Considering the fact that this has previously been the home of many celebrities – including Rose McGowan, and Rachel Bilson – it’s only a matter of time before the next movie star becomes a proud owner of this gorgeous estate.
The Living Room
This charming house was built in 1923, it’s completely secluded with a gated entry. The gorgeous entryway in the front and a terrace fire pit in the back create a real elegant feel. The living room is extremely spacious and well decorated. It features a remarkable built-in bookshelf, amazing fireplace, and sophisticated French doors. Large windows and elegant doors provide the perfect amount of natural light, so this room does not need a lot of artificial light during the day.
Pink ottoman coffee table, colorful carpet of mostly red hues, beige sofa and modern TV set alongside the dark brown shelving creates are the perfect example of eclectic living room style. High gloss chestnut brown wood floors in combination with light cream walls and crown moldings provide the comfortable ambience, alongside the furniture in coffee hues. The additional advantage of the living room is that it’s perfectly private because the gates are preventing any privacy intrusion from the outside.
The Sitting Room
This gorgeous property features a sitting area, which is basically an all-purpose room. It’s very practical and looks quite cozy. It features a dining room table, vintage dark brown bookcase and a large window that provides the room with enough light. With a patterned bohemian style rug, a grey round ottoman, and a set of wooden armchairs the sitting room provides the perfect ambience for both enjoying a meal and reading a book, or spending some quality family time. It is very spacious, so it can easily be redecorated.
Ginnifer’s kitchen is a true state-of-the-art space with high quality equipment and appliances. Black cabinets with earthy toned flooring make the perfect balance of color in this elegant, yet highly functional room. The patterned rug and cushions in the breakfast area are perfectly matched and provide an excellent contrast to the dark tones of cabinetry. A large window at the breakfast area creates the right amount of light and has a great view of the yard. Crème walls and golden faucets complement the entire design and create the ultimate modern kitchen look.
A 2,204 square feet villa features three bedrooms, from which the master one is considered a suit. With a stylish white king-size bed, brown nightstands and gorgeous patterned white and brown lamps make this room incredibly warm and comfortable. The same as in the living room, floors are chestnut brown with a high shine, and the walls provide the perfect contrast. An elegant French door lead straight to the terrace where the family can rest and enjoy their time together. The terrace is equipped with a dining area, so breakfasts must be magical out there.
The bathroom is quite unorthodox in design, since it features highly interesting wallpaper and white tiles. The built in shower with glass door, an old fashioned sink with vintage faucets and a black and white rug are all the elements that make this room exceptional. The house has another bathroom, which is a part of the master bedroom suite, and it features a claw-foot tub and a steam shower.
The outdoor of the house is absolutely enchanting. The beautiful greenery, gorgeous plants and perfect landscaping provides the ultimate comfort to the family. Additionally, the romantic seating in the backyard is perfect for hanging out with friends, barbecuing and relaxing. A couple of steps down from the gorgeous seating, there is a lounge area. A fire pit in the middle, a huge built-in bench with comfy cushions around it and extensive outdoor lighting create the fabulous and enjoyable setting.
According to the professional accounting and tax services, the best way to sell a house is to make the outdoors look just as attractive as the indoors, so that the potential buyer becomes impressed as soon as they step on the property.
