Living Like Jayma Mays in Los Feliz, $2.8MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 2317 Richland Avenue, Los Feliz
What: A 1920’s stucco cottage near Griffith Park, enlarged over decades, resulting in a confusing mashup with scarce outdoor space. The bicoastal firm of JacobsChang Architecture came in to save the day, reorganizing the spaces, adding a second level of decks and entertaining spaces, plus a new master suite. The result? A luminous and welcoming 4-bed, 3.5-bath home with room for the owners’ growing art collection.
Who: Actress-singer Jayma Mays (best known for her role in Glee) and Adam Campbell, the British born actor appearing in the sitcom Great News. The new second level, below, wraps outdoor space around the very private master suite and includes a gallery-like space at the top of the stairs.
The huge swimming, pool added in the ’80s, takes up most of the yard. As wonderful as it is, it became the primary motivation for adding the rooftop decks.
What We Love: The ancient avocado tree. Shade. Sculpture. Guacamole.
The main living spaces are comfortable, open and informally multi-purpose.
