Kristen Wiig Sells to Lily Collins One Mid Mod Marvel!
Proving that these extraordinary actresses also have extraordinary taste in architecture, Kristen Wiig sells to Lily Collins one midcentury modern Case Study House.
Both Emily in Paris star Lily Collins and Saturday Night Live alum Kristen Wiig have good taste—in real estate. The two stars are enamored with midcentury architecture.
Collins reportedly purchased a prime example of one from Wiig for $3.9 million, according to Architectural Digest.
An off-market transaction was made last year for Pasadena’s only Case Study House, #10, built in 1947 by the father-son architecture team of Kemper Nomland Sr. and Kemper Nomland Jr.
The property was renovated before Wiig picked it up for $2,960,000 in 2017, so she fared well on the Collins transaction, making almost $1 million.

Case Study Houses were experiments in residential architecture sponsored by Arts & Architecture magazine. As such, they are prized by midcentury modern enthusiasts far and wide.
The place measures 3,425 square feet and has four bedrooms and four baths. A guesthouse was added to the .37-acre lot over the years.
It bears the typical features of a midcentury modern home: open floor plan, single story, floor-to-ceiling glass walls, and glass doors.
The original wood-paneled walls were replaced with white ones. But the original pale brick fireplace and many of the clerestory windows remain.
The kitchen and baths have modern features that were designed to fit with the original minimalist design.
Wiig, who also starred in such hits as Bridesmaids and Wonder Woman 1984, also purchased a renovated midcentury modern in Silver Lake for $1.7 million in 2014.
That one she made a screaming deal on, selling it for $5,225,000, which was $100,000 over her asking price. At the time, it was one of the highest sale prices in the area.
Collins, daughter of musician Phil Collins, also owned another midcentury classic: an upscale Beverly Hills estate that she picked up in 2016 for $12.5 million.
Designed in 1954 by John Elgin Woolf, who’s known as the “father of Hollywood Regency,” the sprawling, one‐story residence with a distinctive green copper roof, pool, spa, and tennis court, was once featured in Town and Country magazine.
Collins sold the property just last year for $13.5 million.
