On TV, Stevie Budd – who lives in a one-bedroom apartment and drives a station wagon – is the owner of the run-down Rosebud Motel at Schott’s Creek.
In real life, Emily Hampshire — the actress who plays the show’s flannel-clad queen of sarcasm — is the new owner of not one, but two homes in Los Angeles.
The 40-year-old Montreal native reportedly paid $2.65 million for a corner lot in the eclectic Silver Lake enclave. Lynne Pope, the property’s listing agent, confirmed the sale in November. She declined to comment on the buyer for privacy reasons.
Hampshire’s purchase on Redesdale Avenue included two single-family homes and a basement studio. But don’t expect anywhere near the grandeur of the swanky mansion that the Rose family bids farewell to in Season 1. Combined, it’s just 2,096 square feet of living space — most of which could likely be taken up by Moira’s wig collection.
The original home, a 1927 Hispano-Moorish one bedroom home, was one of Silver Lake’s earliest residences. The other house, built in 1949, is a mid-century one-bedroom apartment. Both have recently been refurbished and it’s not hard to imagine the light, breezy look would be appreciated by the actress who got her big break in Nickelodeon’s Are You Afraid of the Dark?.
Should Hampshire decide to convert the property into a boutique hotel, she can offer room service. Both houses have modern kitchens equipped with Wolf and Sub-Zero appliances.
The 9,000-square-foot lot — with expansive views over the city — may even have room for a pool. Best case scenario, yes, she puts up a job offer sign and flies off to shoot the Schitt’s Creek movie we’ve all been waiting for.
