Charlie Sheen made quite a splash when the drug- and booze-fueled antics in his Mediterranean-style Hollywood mansion came to light. As a result, the new owner of the home – “Big Bang Theory” actor Simon Helberg – will likely be a much more popular tenant in the historic Los Feliz neighborhood. Helberg acquired the mini-mansion, built in 1927, for $2.9 million and now has 4,200 square feet of luxury to explore. The Los Feliz home has been on the real estate market since 2009, just two years less than Helberg has starred on the hit TV series.
Decorators and celebrities love wrought iron because it makes any space feel timeless and luxurious. There are a variety of architectural styles, from a Mission style house to a Craftsman cottage or Northwoods lodge.
Jeffrey Lubell, founder of True Religion Brand Jeans, says that wrought iron is one of the key design elements used in his Mediterranean style beach home. Lubell currently has the stunning, 3,000-square-foot Manhattan Beach property on the market for $10.5 million, according to Realtor.com.
Among the ways architect Louie Tomaro incorporates decorative wrought iron in the home is with an eye-catching railing that serves as a statement piece on the beautiful curving staircases in the house. The house’s interior railing also emphasizes the curved balcony that overlooks the ocean.
