Miz Madsen, in case a number of the younger children don’t understand, has her Showbiz money maker in Hollywood because the mid-1980s but did not hit her to-date professional salad times until 2004 when she had been nominated for an Academy Award for her unique twist as a waitress at the minimal budget and much ballyhooed movie Sideways. Though the Oscar nod–she was also nominated for a Golden Globe–didn’t catapult her to superstar leading lady status, she has worked steadily ever since. There have been numerous television applications (Justice League, Monk, Scoundrels, Witches of East End)and also a fair number of movies (The Number 23, The Haunting in Connecticut), plus a bevy of television films (Anna Nicole, Hatfields & McCoys). As per her resume on the Online Movie Data Base, she’s direct roles at at least four films now in one stage of manufacturing or another.

Property documents reveal Miz Madsen acquired herThousand Oaks abode in November 2005 for $1,351,000. A couple of quick calculations about our semi annual abacus shows that even if her youthful and scruffy-chinned realtor manages to coax a complete price offer, his Tinseltown client still presents a barely inconsequential $263,000 loss, not counting carrying expenses, improvement expenses and property prices.

Current listing details reveal that the two-story house was built in 2004 and backs around a public park your Mama imagines can get loudly with screaming children at least every now and then. You will find four bedrooms, 4.5 baths and a garaging for three cars in two bays, both with immediate access into the home. Your Mama is not an educated specialist so we actually can’t be sure what blend of architectural styles are present here but there’s plenty of used crimson brick veneer put on the outside’s lower level and there is a whole lotta quintessentially tan stucco onto the top level. Some of those vinyl-framed windows have (likely faux) shutters, the roof’s borders are lined with brown clay tiles, and there’s a minuscule, second floor veranda that overlooks the red brick driveway.

Indoors, record photos indicate Miz Madsen has an unrestrained enthusiasm that borders on a dependence on elaborate wall remedies. From suddenly and the entrance hallway voluminous, double-height formal dining room the walls are all slathered. Beige, natural stone tiles the in front hall and dining room switch into mahogany-toned wood using a semi-gloss treatment in the”formal” living area where we can not not observe the least as equally labour intensive–and likely more questionable–bronze paint treatment to the walls and the ceiling. **

Around the bottom of the stairs in the formal dining area the an eat-in center island kitchen includes faux-aged raised panel cabinetry, speckled tan granite counter tops, higher quality appliances and–you got it, Tea Cups and Tiddlywinks–a hand-applied habit faux-paint therapy. The kitchen opens into a lot of the buttery paint treatment from the kitchen windows and doors to the yard, and a family room with television in-wall gas fireplace. More to the chagrin across the planet and inexplicably, the flooring in the family area is done with a stone tile and partly with some of the new-fangled ceramic tile that resembles wood, or wood.

Frankly, kids, Your Mama never thought we’d need to make a tough and fast rule about this but Rule No. 187 at Your Mama’s Big Book of Decoratin’ Dos and Don’ts now avers with laser sharp self-righteousness that,”An individual space in a well-dressed residence shall not possess more than one floor material installed at the exact same moment. It is confusing and unnecessary as well as functional as it might be in any position, it looks like shit. It will andy’know it will, also.” Discuss having a nerve tablet. Pleeze.

Along with the discrete power room, among the three guest/family bedrooms is tucked into a private corner of the home were it has direct access to a personal bathroom. Two bedrooms on the second floor every additionally have an en suite pooper. Dual doors*** lead in the master bedroom in which –at our humble and meaningless opinion–the taupe-toned shag wall-to-wall carpeting clashes angrily with all the haute-glammy silver-leaf treatment put on the walls. French doors open to a private balcony with park along with canyon views and there’s a an L-shaped walk-in closet off the spacious if fully beige bath that’s outfitted with a garden tub, twin sinks and separate shower stall. The top floor is finished with a spacious living room plus a laundry room.

As in many upscale housing developments from shore to shore in the United States, Miz Madsen’s Thousand Oaks’ yard is definitely compact. It is barely larger than a decent courtyard, really. Nonetheless, it elevated spa which seats eight and is equipped using a strip of flag stone terracing plus a plunge-sized salt water swimming pool, and also a curtain-hung and vine-draped pergola that shades a seating area around a fire pit. The house backs up to some publicly available park with tennis courts, soccer pitch, a few softball/baseball diamonds, and also a children’s park.

We openly confess that we have not a clue where Miz Madsen plans to decamp not that her Thousand Oaks house is going to be marketed. It’s possible, though somewhat improbable she will hole up at three bathroom condo at West Hollywood’s western end and the 3 bedroom that property records show she picked up at 2006 for $860,000 and appears with her mum. However we uncertainty.

*As of today, online listings indicate the property is deep in lieu having an unknown buyer for an unknown cost.

**Don’t even ask, kids, because we won’t go there on all the chocolate brown contempo-style furnishings Miz Madsen done shoved up inside her bronze-toned formal living room. Your Mama is plum out of nerve pills and we just can’t tolerate another moment to these wacky-footed abominations without having at least two tablets additional lime, and a tonic and gin chaser, please and please you. Are master bedrooms that are doored, after all, only a cliché of tract house design intended to denote a sense of splendor? No? Yes? Are we just being snobby?
