Actress and comedian Kristen Wiig dropped $2.96 million to purchase the famous Case Study House No. 10 on San Rafael Avenue in Pasadena, Variety reported. It hit the market for roughly the same price just three months ago.
The 1947 home — designed by father-and-son architects Kemper Nomland and Kemper Nomland Jr.— was part of Arts & Architecture magazine’s Case Study program, in which renowned architects took a swing at building some of the most unique and influential homes to date. Renovated by Design Vidal in 2012, it currently includes three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, a new swimming pool and spa, and a guesthouse.
Deasy Penner and Partners’ Cynthia and Lauren Luczyski had the listing.
Wiig, who gained national acclaim on “Saturday Night Live” and later earned starring roles in blockbuster hits like “Bridesmaids,” has maintained an impressive real estate portfolio on both coasts. She currently owns a hillside home above the Silver Lake Reservoir, as well as a two-bedroom loft in New York City’s Soho neighborhood. Wiig listed her Franklin Hills home for sale earlier this year.
