Dakota Fanning Moves Out from Her and Elle’s Place into a Traditional Toluca Lake Home That’s Worth This Much
With a Hollywood tenure spanning to almost two decades, 25-year-old Dakota Fanning literally grew up before our eyes. Who would ever forget those piercing blue eyes and her intelligent acting in the tear-jerking film I am Sam?
The movie catapulted her to stardom — from doing supporting roles to becoming a respected and celebrated actress at a young age. She is still the youngest actor to ever receive a nod from the Screen Actors Guild Award with her portrayal of Lucy Diamond in the said film. At 12, the War of the World’s actress became the youngest member of the Academy.
The sad part of being an award-winning actress at an early age is people tend to always see her as a child. However, despite her baby face, Dakota still managed to snag serious and challenging roles that widened her scope in acting, like the Twilight franchise, The Last of Robinhood, and The Runaways. Just this year, she starred in a Quentin Tarantino movie, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.
Now, since our little Dakota is all-grown-up, she is also making serious moves with her money, especially with real estate as she recently purchased a $2.95-million house in Toluca Lake. Before this purchase, she shared a home with her sister Elle in Valley Village, which is just an 8-minute drive away from The Alienist star’s current place that they bought in 2017 for $2.3 million.
The older Fanning this year expanded her property list with this 5-bedroom beauty in the A-lister-infested area. The house, which stands on a mere 7,400-square-feet lot, has a traditional architecture that borrowed elements from Cape Cod. Unlike other Cape Cod-type homes, Dakota’s new abode has two stories, a broad roof, and, though still at minimal, has more ornaments like square recessed columns at the porch and loggia.
The exterior of the house may seem bland — sure it has a pool in the backyard, a two-car garage, some greenery, a roofed loggia with a grilling station, and a spa — with its traditional white paneling and French windows, the house looks like any typical house a sit-com may hold production.
Upon entering you will be greeted by the brightness of place that may come off as pale. There is a double-height hall with a sparkling chandelier, an immaculate light wood, and a white staircase to welcome you while to your left is the formal living space. This receiving area is rather simple with the white walls and ceilings and whitewashed wooden floors that flow all over the house.
The living area, despite all the lightness, has impeccable woodwork and paneling. The traditionalism of the house is made louder by the carvings on the windowpanes and door panes that are also being mimicked in other places like the mantel of the fireplace, the recession of the interior columns, and the paneling on the walls and stairs.
There is almost no distinction between the living and the dining area except for the minimalist but also paneled partition. Other than that, there is a continuous flow between the rooms extending to the butler’s pantry and the kitchen. The kitchen is family-size and fully functional, furnished with high-quality appliances and gifted with ample lighting. It also came with two marble islands – one with a sink and the other separating the kitchen to a family room.
The family room has a wall of shelves and a TV over a fireplace. To the left side is a folding glass door that leads you straight to the backyard. This room also has an attached breakfast nook with a view of the yard, ideal for a lazy morning with a book and a healthy breakfast on the table.
On the upper level are the rooms with the master bedroom ensuite. It also has a walk-in closet and an all-white bathroom with glass-enclosed shower and marble countertops, floors, and walls.
