Kate Walsh, the actress who plays Dr. Addison Montgomery on the TV drama “Private Practice” (which I haven’t gotten into, but I liked her on “Grey’s Anatomy”), is selling her charming 1920s house in Los Feliz. I remembered seeing it in InStyle magazine a couple of years ago, so I set out to track the photos down and compare it to how it looks in the listing. Wanna see?

According to the article, Walsh was sharing her home with two pups (Rosie and Lucy) and a pair of cats (Pablo and Billie).

Kate told InStyle, “I wanted to mix 20th-century design with French and Spanish antiques—and not have it look like a garage sale!”

“The gated home retains its 1920s details in the intricately tiled main hall and staircase, arched windows and passageways, and stenciled beamed ceilings,” according to the listing.

The dining room has an oval inset ceiling:

Here’s how the dining room looked in InStyle magazine in ’09, with a glass table and different chairs:

The kitchen is a little blah for me, almost like it was tacked on without a lot of thought to the rest of the house.

I like the back staircase that comes down into the kitchen. I’ve always wanted one of those!

Here’s that same room as it appeared in InStyle in ’09:

The house has 4 bedrooms, 6 baths, and nearly 6,000 square feet.

The master bedroom was shown in the magazine, along with the explanation that the artwork over the sofa was painted by her brother Joseph:

Master bath:

One of the four bedrooms was turned into a big walk-in closet. I hope there’s more space for hanging clothes in it than this photo would suggest:

Walsh told InStyle that she loved Addison’s bedroom on “Private Practice” so much that she hired the show’s set decorator, Melissa Levander, to help her with her real house, too. Those of you who watch “PP” will have to tell us if you see any resemblance between these rooms and the ones on TV!

There’s also a 3-room guest house on the property, with office space and a Pilates studio.

She unsuccessfully listed the house in May of 2010 for $4.295 million and put it back on the market recently for $3.995.

Like it? You can see more at InStyle (magazine photos by Francoise Halard) and check out the listing on Trulia, offered by Juliette Hohnen of Teles Properties in Beverly Hills.
