Today's installment of "Which celebrity's house is this?" involves the 1,817-square-foot, two-bedroom row house at 741 Mildred Avenue in Los Angeles' Venice area, which recently sold for $1,040,000.
The reason we believe that the buyer of this row house is a celebrity is because public records show the buyer to be something called the ADF Revocable Trust. And the money manager who is named on the deed as the trustee for the ADF Revocable Trust is Steven Campeas. While Campeas' name may not be familiar to our readers (a quick check of our archives shows that we've never actually identified him by name before), his name has appeared on the deeds of many celebrities in their real estate transactions over the years, including those of John Stamos, Rebecca DeMornay, Matt LeBlanc, and also, it appears Kyle MacLachlan. So naturally, our interest was piqued by the revelation that on September 3, the ADF Revocable Trust purchased Unit 5 in the eight-unit Market Mews development in Venice, with the deal being recorded on September 30. (The final purchase price did not become available in public records until today.)
Built in 2007, the row house has two baths, a second-level two-story vaulted living space with 14-foot roll-up glass doors, and an outdoor terrace, according to public records and listing information. Check out Curbed LA's fine report from May about this development, which noted that units in this development had been available for $1,265,000 to $1,550,000 -- quite a distance above the amount for which the buyer fetched this row house.
So, dear readers, we ask you as we always do: which celebrity was the buyer of this house?
