Viola Davis, who won an Oscar last month for her role in “Fences,” has sold her former Los Angeles home for $1.15 million.
The five-bedroom, five-bathroom home is in the San Fernando Valley neighborhood of Granada Hills, a high-income area albeit a less popular spot among Hollywood’s elite. She and her husband, actor and producer Julius Tennon, bought the home in 2005 for $1.7 million, according to property records.
Their $200,000 loss on the property, however, fades in comparison to Ms. Davis’s historic win for best supporting actress at the Oscars last month. She’s the first black woman to win an Emmy, a Tony and an Academy Award—a milestone referred to as a Triple Crown of Acting.
Her former home in Granada Hills is more than 20 minutes from the star-speckled hills of Bel Air but no less luxurious. The house has a family room with a wet bar and fireplace, a formal living room with double-height ceilings, a saltwater pool and spa, and an outdoor kitchen, according to the listing with Re/Max. The pool features a waterfall, lights and flagstone seating.
Ms. Davis, 51, recently picked up a posher property in Toluca Lake, according to Variety, which first reported the Granada Hills sale. She bought the new home in August for $5.7 million under a trust connected to her production company, Juvee Productions, property records show.
At 7,545 square feet, her newer house is nearly double the size of her old one. It has five bedrooms, eight bathrooms and 600-bottle wine closet.
A publicist for Ms. Davis did not immediately return a request for comment.
