Miles and miles away from the chaos at Kings Landing, Lena Headey‘s Sherman Oaks house is a mid-century modern home open and peaceful, boasting 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms. Priced just under $2 million, it’s not a castle but it’s classy for sure and The Most Expensive Homes is about to share with you some great reasons why this house really rules in real life. CHECK OUT!
Before deciding to move on to the new house near her hometown, Headey fully remodeled her Valley residence but kept some great period touches, including the wall of breezeblocks by the entryway.
The house’s interior design is a very modern mix of handsome wood, beamed ceilings, and blue tile accents. To give you an idea, it was considered attractive enough to be featured in Dwell magazine last year.
According to Curbed, Lena Headey paid $790,000 for this house in 2014, which means she stands to more than double her money if it sells for its current list price ($1.95 million).
Featuring open shelving and a glinting mirrored backsplash, the lovely kitchen is separated from the backyard and saltwater pool by a set of Fleetwood sliding doors.
In case you have been out of this planet in recent times and are completely unaware of the cultural phenomenon worldwide known as Game of Thrones, a quick Google search on it might answer almost all the question. But since TMEH‘s editors love making our readers’ lives easier, here is a quick review of the GoT universe.
Game of Thrones is an American fantasy drama television series created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss based on George R.R. Martin‘s best-selling ‘A Song of Ice and Fire‘ series. It stretches from the south, where heat breeds plots, lusts, and intrigues, to the vast and savage eastern lands, where a young queen raises an army. All the while, in the frozen north, an 800-foot wall of ice precariously protects the war-ravaged kingdom from the dark forces that lie beyond. Kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars, lords and honest men… all play the ‘Game of Thrones.’
Based on the storylines of A Song of Ice and Fire, Game of Thrones is set in the fictional Seven Kingdoms of Westeros and the continent of Essos. The series chronicles the violent dynastic struggles among the realm’s noble families for the Iron Throne, while other families fight for independence from it. It opens with additional threats in the icy North and Essos in the east. It is filmed in Belfast and elsewhere in the United Kingdom, Canada, Croatia, Iceland, Malta, Morocco, Spain, and the United States.
The series is generally praised for what is perceived as a sort of medieval realism. George R.R. Martin set out to make the story feel more like historical fiction than contemporary fantasy, with less emphasis on magic and sorcery and more on battles, political intrigue, and the characters, believing that magic should be used moderately in the epic fantasy genre. Martin has stated that “the true horrors of human history derive not from orcs and Dark Lords, but from ourselves.” Main characters are regularly killed off, and this has been credited with developing tension among viewers. The series also reflects the substantial death rates in war.
Although the first season is a faithful adaptation of the novel, later seasons have significant changes. According to David Benioff, the show is “about adapting the series as a whole and following the map, George laid out for us and hitting the major milestones, but not necessarily each of the stops along the way”.
