Hunter Schafer, best known for her character Jules in HBO’s multi-award winning show, Euphoria, won a multimillion-dollar bidding war for a midcentury-modern style pad in the prosperous Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles. The home was constructed as part of a housing co-op there known as the Mutual Housing Association, and was designed by architects A. Quincy Jones and Whitney R. Smith. The actor, who will star in the upcoming flick The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes, paid almost $3.9 million—offering nearly $200,000 over the asking price.
It’s easy to see why Schafer was so attracted to the property. It’s located on a semi-remote and narrow road up high in the Brentwood hills, and pretty much hidden out of sight. After a few decades of neglect mixed with unsuccessful remodels, a real estate development firm called HabHouse purchased the property last year for $2.3 million and transformed it back to a style that mirrors its original aesthetic.

Once you step inside Schafer’s new abode, an entry foyer greets you with steps leading to a den featuring a wood-burning brick fireplace as the main focal point. Adjacent to the den is a living and dining area, which connects to a kitchen that’s decked out in vintage-style appliances. The primary suite is equipped with its own closet and bathroom. There are two additional bedrooms that share a bath.
Walls of glass can be found throughout the house, opening to patios and allowing for unlimited light from the sun and access to fresh air. There are plenty of opportunities around the house to enjoy the treetop and mountain views.
The exterior features a sloped-roof structure that covers a parking space large enough for two cars. The fenced backyard is surrounded with greenery, and includes a patio for entertaining, as well as a hot tub.
