For Sale: January Jones' Modern Makeover of 1920s House
As Betty Draper on "Mad Men," January Jones seems at home in the midcentury suburbs. But the remodel of her Los Feliz Mediterranean home, now listed for $1.495 million, shows her personal style is more formal and contemporary.
Since buying the home for just over $1 million in 2009, the actress had a son, filmed several seasons of the hit AMC show and found time to completely remodel the kitchen in her 1920s gated home. And there is not a retro appliance or rotary telephone in sight.
The home at 4969 Ambrose Ave. in Los Angeles was outdated when she bought it. The kitchen, in particular, had linoleum floors and a cramped space, prompting the Real Estalker to call it "a fixer."
Jones added a Carrara marble island and a big stainless steel sink. She also updated the wood-burning fireplace and redecorated in a black-and-white palette. The formal, elegant three-bedroom, three-bath home is 2,200 square feet, with a pool table, hardwood floors and lots of windows.
