Making Moves in Southern California, Alfred Molina Lists Hollywood Home

Acclaimed actor Alfred Molina is moving up in the world ... at least geographically speaking. He's traded the palm trees for the pines! Now that Molina's settled into a completely remodeled home in the foothills of La Canada Flintridge, he's put his Mediterranean-style home in Hollywood on the market for $2.95 million.

The prolific actor, who's currently nominated for Outstanding Supporting Actor for his role as beleaguered director Robert Aldrich in "Feud: Bette and Joan," bought his new ranch-style home in July for $2.75 million.

The home he's now selling is prominently located in a surprisingly cozy residential neighborhood between Hollywood and Sunset Boulevard, near Laurel Canyon.

Located in a neighborhood known as "Sunset Square," it features five bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and measures 3,755 square feet. Originally built in 1919, the home has been completely remodeled, but still retains some of its historic charm, in the form of stunning leaded glass windows, wood floors, and a "Renaissance"-style library.

More on this...

It makes sense that Molina has a massive, Italian-style kitchen with stainless steel appliances and plenty of prep space, since his mother was Italian. His father was Spanish, and Molina himself was born and raised in England, so it's no surprise that there's a European vibe throughout the home.

But there's also a bit of Hollywood glam, reflected in the massive closets and the abundance of luxurious balconies and terraces.

And it also reflects California's latest water-wise sensibilities, with no pool, but plenty of drought-resistant, native landscaping.

Plus, there's additional California-style living space in the guest house in back, which includes an office off the finished garage, and an upstairs suite with a full bath, kitchen area, and private terrace.

Molina has been a Hollywood fixture for quite some time, and is best-known for his roles in films like "Boogie Nights," "Spiderman 2," and "The Da Vinci Code."
