Charlize Theron Just Bought a $3.3 Million House in SoCal’s Studio City

Barely a month after she hoisted her mother’s Los Angeles house in a particularly celeb-packed pocket of the Hollywood Hills onto the market for $3.8 million, Charlize Theron has upgraded Gerda Maritz into a new home. Records show the veteran actress—who also owns three other properties in the Southern California area—just plunked down $3.3 million for some modern farmhouse-style digs in the desirable Colfax Meadows neighborhood of Studio City.

Originally built in 2016 and recently updated, per the listing, the two-story property offers five en-suite bedrooms and six bathrooms in a little more than 3,300 square feet of open-concept living space adorned throughout with decorative wainscoting and crown molding, wide-plank wood floors and high ceilings. Numerous windows also provide plenty of natural light.

Theron’s newly acquired residence sits on less than a quarter-acre parcel of land, at the end of a wide driveway that empties out at an attached two-car garage fronting the white wood-sided structure. From there, a walkway leads up to the glass-paneled front door, which opens into a living area nestled alongside a dining room boasting a coffered ceiling and built-in china cabinet. There’s also a cozy family room anchored by a fireplace bordered by custom shelving and sliding glass doors spilling outside, plus a gourmet kitchen outfitted with white oak cabinetry, a marble-clad eat-in island, and top-tier Miele and Wolf appliances.

A floating iron-railed staircase heads upstairs, where a posh master retreat comes complete with a balcony, “diva” walk-in closet, and two-way fireplace that connects on the other side to a luxe spa-like bath equipped with dual vanities, a freestanding soaking tub and large glass-encased shower; and outdoors, the private and grassy backyard hosts a fire-pit, heated pool and spa, and an al fresco lounging and entertaining terrace bolstered by a built-in Hestan grill.

A native of South Africa, the 48-year-old actress first gained notoriety after appearing in the films The Devil’s AdvocateMighty Joe Young and The Cider House Rules, and went on to win a 2004 “Best Actress” Oscar for her portrayal of real-life serial killer Aileen Wuornos in Monster. Theron has since appeared in numerous movies and TV series, including North CountryTullyBombshellThe Italian Job, Mad Max: Fury Road and Atomic Blonde. Under Denver and Delilah Productions, she’s also produced The Burning PlainDark Places and Long Shot.

In addition to her just-purchased abode, Theron also lays claim to another Studio City house she paid $2.6 million for in late 2022—reportedly occupied by another family member—as well as a 20-acre ranch in Ojai that she bought for $4.2 million in summer 2018 and her main residence, a 1920s Mediterranean-style villa in Hollywood Hills acquired for $1.6 million back in the late 1990s. As for her mother’s old Hollywood Hills home, that place is currently pending sale.
