Actress Alex Kingston, who is known most for playing the British doctor Elizabeth Corday on NBC's "ER" from 1997 until 2004, and her husband have placed their 4,257-square-foot house in Los Angeles' Hollywood Hills on the market for $4,750,000.
In a Big Time Listings exclusive, we can report on Kingston's listing of the six-bedroom house, at 3220 Tahoe Place in the Hollywood Hills. Kingston, 45, and her husband, German free-lance journalist Florian Haertel, placed the house on the market on Friday, according to listing information. Public records show that Kingston purchased the house in September 1998 for $719,000. She had divorced from actor Ralph Fiennes the previous year, and wed Haertel in 1998. Built in 1964 and remodeled by Paul Hinckley, Kingston's house has six and a half baths, "organically infused materials such as glass, wood and concrete," an open entry, and a living room with soaring Douglas fir ceilings, a two-sided wood-burning fireplace, and concrete floors, according to public records and listing information. Other features include a high-end Bulthaup kitchen with "striking use of steel and glass," according to listing information. The house has a pool and sits on a 0.47-acre parcel, according to public records. Check out an online listing sheet for Kingston's house -- complete with photos -- here. Also, take a look at a special website for the house here. Kingston also has owned one other property in the L.A. area. In October 2003, she sold a house of some notoriety that she had owned and had rehabbed -- but that she had never occupied -- at 11604 Dilling Street in Los Angeles' Studio City area for $1,500,000, according to public records. Kingston had purchased that house in April 2002 from actor Robert Blake. Forbes magazine's "Movers and Shakers" online column had written about that house back in August 2003 (long before we had started blogging). And the Los Angeles Times' Ruth Ryon had written also about the listing back on July 27, 2003, noting that while Kingston and Haertel had intended to move into the former Blake house after having Hinckley fully reconstruct it, the couple ultimately decided at that time to stay in their Tahoe Place home. Ryon also noted in that column that they had purchased a second home in Austria that they were in the process of remodeling.
