Natalie Portman Buys L.A. Mini-Mansion
Gorgeous actress Natalie Portman just overpaid for a California-Medieval mini-manor (above) in L.A.'s Los Feliz. The Star Wars stunner paid $3.25 million, or $51,000 above the asking price, for the 4,866-sq.-ft., four-bed, two-bath house built in the 1930s, which was formerly owned by Dermot Mulroney and Catherine Keener, the Real Estalker reports. A brick courtyard at the front of the walled and gated property leads to the entrance of the rough-hewn stone and wood residence. The key feature is a baronial wood-paneled living room with a cathedral ceiling and large fireplace. A wide brick terrace on the garden side overlooks an inground pool, and there are two guesthouses on the property.
