James Franco makes hefty profit on Silver Lake duplex

The actor sold the property $400K over asking

One might say “This Is the End” for James Franco and Silver Lake.

The actor-director-screenwriter sold his Spanish-style duplex on Hidalgo Avenue for $1.35 million, roughly $401,000 above asking price and nearly double the amount he paid for it, the Los Angeles Times reported. It listed for sale just a few months ago asking $949,000.

Spanning nearly 1,500 square feet, the residence includes two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a “crow’s nest” on the top floor and several outdoor patios. Raised ceilings and exposed beams surround the interior of the property.
