Meghan Markle’s LA house hits the market!

When Megan Markle (now the Duchess of Sussex and a princess of the United Kingdom) had first gotten her acting part in Suits in the 2011, she was married to Trevor Engelson. They had rented this beautiful Colonial-styled house in LA’s Hancock Park neighborhood, which is a stone’s throw from downtown Hollywood. Although Megan Markle’s work commitments required her to live nine months of the year in Toronto, this is where she would return to between her shoot schedules and this is what she called her home until her divorce in the year 2013.

This charming house is filled with sunlight that bounces off its white walls and has bright, yet minimal décor. This Colonial-style house measures 2,262-square-feet and has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a family room, a living room with a fireplace, and a dining area – all on an open plan. The dining are opens onto a patio for entertaining. The eat-in kitchen is also filled with a lot of natural light and the white cabinets are covered with marble countertops. There is a two-car garage with additional parking space.

Romantics around the world love to believe the fact that Megan Markle’s wedding with Prince Harry was a real life Cinderella story. But what they do not seem to know is the truth that she had been starring in Suits for six years and was paid a whopping $ 450,000 per show (estimates by Fortune). In addition to this, her two clothing lines were very popular, sold out quickly, and her fashion-lifestyle blog earned about $ 80,000 annually. Megan Markle was among those who did not believe in sitting back and wasting time. She also acted in a number of small roles in between all of this and made roughly $ 200,000 for each of her minor movie roles. When the engagement of Megan Markle and Prince Harry was announced, her estimated wealth was already hovering at a massive $ 5 million.

For Megan Markle’s followers who themselves have big dreams, this Colonial-styled house is the most perfect pick. It is up for grab at $ 1.8 million. The listing agent is Sheri Bienstock of The Bienstock Group in Los Angeles.

Also, according to rumours, the Sussexes might be looking out for a second home in California, where Megan Markle’s mother still lives.
