Designer Visit: A Mad Man’s $800K Hollywood Hideaway

Michelle Slatalla October 27, 2014

After putting his 580-square-foot Hollywood hideaway on the market for $808,000 recently, Mad Men actor Vincent Kartheiser has sold the mini-compound (courtyard garden included) that LA designer Funn Roberts created with a “Japanese-industrial” vibe.

Built in 1912, the tiny cottage on an unassuming street in Hollywood was a warren of rooms when Kartheiser bought it about 10 years ago. Designer Roberts’ brief was to give it what Kartheiser describes as “Japanese-industrial” style, with shoji-style sliding screens and delicate Japanese maples in a courtyard garden.
