Once upon a time in a land far, far away (from our home office), lived an actress named Meghan Markle. Known for her television role on Suits, she traveled far and wide, country to country, until she met a man named Harry – Prince Harry! Over a year later, they married on live TV (totally normal, right?) and moved into London’s Frogmore Cottage with their recent addition to the royal family, baby Archie.
But, what about Meghan’s life she left behind in Los Angeles, California? She’s living out the rest of her royal days in Windsor, England, but her former home in Los Angeles is now up for grabs.
Listed at $1.8 million, it’s hard to say ‘no’ to a home where a royal used to live. With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the home is perfect for a family like that of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. The charming, colonial-style home features a white exterior with accents of black in the window panes and decorative wrought iron security bars.
The home’s open floor plan immediately catches your eye as you walk in through the large front door. Natural hardwood flooring flows throughout the first floor and invites you to move from room to room as gracefully as a duchess. To your left is a cozy living room that’s perfect for entertaining.
The main living space opens up to the dining room, which is flooded with natural light from french doors that lead to the outdoor entertaining area. Like the rest of the house, the kitchen’s allure lies with its charming coziness. With two stoves, a large stainless steel fridge, and built-in cabinetry, the kitchen makes cooking feel less like a chore and more like a treat. The all-white space with gold details is accented by luxe countertops and backsplash, adding a layer of texture and dimension to the bright kitchen.
The three ensuite bedrooms, one of which is Jack-and-Jill style, brings a warmth and comfort to the house. With light hardwood floors and plenty of natural light, it’s easy to understand why Markle chose this L.A. house as her home. While it may be smaller than her current estate, it makes up for its size with cozy charm and an inviting ambiance.
