It doesn’t take Sherlock Holmes to know Lucy Liu is sitting pretty… on a good real estate investment, that is.
The Elementary actress, 44, who films the hit CBS show in NYC as Holmes’ trusty sidekick Watson, is raking in a sizable chunk of monthly dough after recently renting out her L.A. abode in the hills of Studio City, Calif. for $12,000, Celebuzz has learned.
And the private hideaway is California living at its finest, complete with a feeling of serenity and a true escape from the city.
The stunning 4-bedroom, 5-bath wooded oasis, which she purchased in 2004, is over 4,000 square feet and filled with Liu’s impeccable designer taste and modern furnishings that compliment the Craftsman architecture.
One feature every SoCal home must have is pool access and plenty of natural sunlight — and this retreat has it in spades. Both the master suite and media room open onto the sparkling pool and patio where you’ll also find a cabana perfect for entertaining.
And that’s not all. There’s a chef’s kitchen, sitting room with its own fireplace, sunroom that can moonlight as a gym, windows galore, and one-of-a-kind treetop views. Not to mention, there are three additional bedrooms and if you don’t want to work out at home, you don’t have to. Liu’s sanctuary is just steps away from L.A.’s famous Fryman Canyon hiking trails.
