Welcome to “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous: Mid Century Modern Edition.” At least, that’s how it feels looking at the incredible former home of actress Ellen Page.

The gorgeous post-and-beam home was built in 1955 and sits nestled in the hills of Los Angeles, Calif. The actress, known for her starring role in “Juno” and, more recently, the Netflix show “Umbrella Academy,” recently sold the home for $2.1M, over her asking price. The home fetched significantly more than for what Page had purchased it for in 2014, when she bought the home from tennis pro Venus Williams for $1.7M.

From Realtor.com:

Built in 1955, the gated home features a carport, motor court, and pool. The 1,528-square-foot home includes a master suite and two guest bedrooms, one currently in use as an office.

Sliding glass doors open the living space, with its high ceilings, clerestory windows, and light wood floors, to the pool, lawn, and deck outside.

Updated for modern needs, the space still retains original features such as the fireplace anchoring the living room as well as terrazzo flooring. The galley kitchen with a skylight has new appliances and light wood cabinetry.
