'Neighbors’ Star Zac Efron Sells His Historical Modern Home
The star of the current comedy hit says goodbye to his historically significant midcentury modern bachelor pad in the Hollywood Hills.
architects of the day, such as Richard Neutra, Ray Eames and Rodney Walker, built humble model homes throughout Los Angeles. While Efron’s former dwelling was not technically part of the study, it was designed for it and built in 1947.
However, while Efron’s place does have the study’s trademark single-story layout, walls of glass and “seamless indoor outdoor flow,” it’s clearly been updated with features like heated concrete floors, an infinity pool with an ozone system, and an open kitchen with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances.
The lushly landscaped and gated property is located on Woodrow Wilson Drive, a neighborhood in the vicinity of the famed Hollywood Bowl, just a stone's throw from hip clubs, restaurants and numerous studios. Hidden in the hills, the place is the ideal secluded, single celebrity hangout.
Don’t worry about Efron being homeless, however. Last October, the star of Seventeen Again, Hairspray, That Awkward Moment and the TV series Summerland purchased a “majestic Zen contemporary" in the hip Los Feliz area for close to $4 million. That’s where you’ll find him these days, hopefully doing a better job of making friends with his new neighbors than his character did in his newest film.
