Actor Graham Phillips of “The Good Wife” fame has bought a home in Studio City, California, for $1.6 million.
Designed by Harwell Hamilton Harris and built in 1939, the wood-clad residence is named for its original owners Mary and Lee Blair. Mary Blair was an animator and concept artist for Walt Disney Co. and worked on Disneyland’s “It’s a Small World” attraction. Lee Blair, a watercolorist and animator, worked on the films “Pinocchio,” “Fantasia” and “Saludos Amigos.”
Set up from the street, among mature trees and landscaping, the multilevel house has picture windows and bi-folding doors that take in the leafy setting. Its 1,245 square feet includes an open living room with a brick fireplace, an updated kitchen, two bedrooms and one bathroom. A wine cellar sits off the front entry.
A stairway leads up to the artist’s former studio. Terraces and a rooftop patio create additional living space outside, and a funicular helps navigate the steep lot.
The property previously sold a year ago for $1.5 million, records show. It had been listed for $1.6 million.
Phillips, 24, has film credits that include “Evan Almighty” (2007), “Goats” (2011) and “Staten Island Summer” (2015). He will have a recurring role in the upcoming season of CW’s “Riverdale.”
