It was not too long ago that a hilltop stable next to Elysian Park was empty. But on a recent walk in the park, Jeremy Rosenberg was surprised and delighted to discover that the stable was once again sheltering horses. Give them extra room when you pass them on the trails.

REAL ESTATE MONDAY
Celebrities buying and selling in Atwater Village, Glassell Park and Silver Lake
Our latest real estate roundup includes a trio of deals with Hollywood and literary connections. Read on for details.
Tim Federle, author of “Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist,” has paid $1.2 million for a 1920s cottage in Atwater Village, Dirt reported. Built in 1924, the home had recently been renovated by Better Shelter. Dirt describes the style of the home as “somewhere between colonial and modern farmhouse.”
Reno Wilson, known for his performances in some of the “Transformers” movies, has found a buyer for his 3-bedroom Glassell Park home for nearly $1.6 million, after it sat on the market for just two weeks, Dirt reported. The 2,888 square-foot contemporary on The Paseo was just built in 2016. If the deal ends up settling on Wilson’s asking price, it’ll mean a solid profit over the $1.3 million that Wilson paid for it three years ago.
Actor Finn Wittrock from “American Horror Story” bought a Silver Lake midcentury bungalow for nearly $1.8 million, $361,000 more than the asking price, Dirt reported. Built in 1957, the 2-bedroom/2-bathroom on Waverly Drive features an open floor plan with exposed beams and high ceilings, and sits on nearly three-quarters of an acre of land.
