Comic actor Russell Brand — he of the off-color humor and wild-eyed visage — has bought a character-filled home in Hollywood Hills West for $2.224 million.
The restored 1926 traditional-style house was designed by Roy Selden Price, an architect known for his period revival work.
Beyond a somewhat modest entry is a 4,800-square-foot interior space with arched doorways, an office, a home theater with two tiers of seating, five bedrooms and 5.5 baths. The arched-ceiling living room features a fireplace.
Balconies and decks sit off the multistory dwelling, providing room for outdoor dining, a bar and a lounge area.
