‘Broad City’ star buys Silver Lake mid-century modern home

New York City-based comedian, writer and actress Abbi Jacobson, co-creator, writer, producer and star, with Ilana Glazer, of the acclaimed Comedy Central series “Broad City,” splashed out almost $1.6 million, so swears celebrity real estate snitch Yolanda Yakketyyak, for a renovated and restored 1950s modern residence in L.A.’s hipster-favored Silver Lake area. Set above the street, where it takes advantage of palm tree-framed views, the just over 2,000-square-foot two-story residence has three bedrooms and two bathrooms plus a separate office space accessible through the three-car garage.

The window-lined living room features a massive stone fireplace and has an oblique, over-the-treetops view of the downtown skyline. The dining room has glass sliders to an enormous covered patio and is open over a peninsula snack bar to a center-island kitchen that pairs a restored vintage cooktop with otherwise up-to-date stainless steel appliances and solid-surface countertops on snow-white Shaker-style cabinets.
