Dita Von Teese, the curvaceous model known for bringing burlesque dancing back into vogue, has bought a stunning Tudor Revival-style house in Los Feliz for $2.83 million.
Entered through a rotunda that evokes a castle turret, the 1927 home blends traditional features with tasteful designer updates. Wood-beam cathedral ceilings, gothic arches and decorative medallions are among the architectural details.
An English kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a breakfast area, living and family rooms, a den/office, four bedrooms, three full bathrooms and two powder rooms are within the 3, 200 square feet of living space. That should be plenty of room for her vintage china, tea sets and eggcup collections.
Sheltered by mature pine and oak trees, the third-acre property includes gardens, multiple patios and decks, a swimming pool and a pool house with a wet bar and a sauna.
Von Teese, 42, graced the cover of Playboy in December 2002. The multi-talented fan dancer is a costume designer and actress with her own lingerie line. She is the former wife of musician Marilyn Manson.
Peter Reyes of Keller Williams was the listing agent. Phillip Dominguez, also with Keller Williams, represented Von Teese.
