‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Star Ellen Pompeo Lists Spanish Stunner in Los Angeles
Presley Ann/Patrick McMullan via Getty Images“Grey’s Anatomy” actress Ellen Pompeo is selling her longtime home in Los Angeles, located just a few blocks away from the Hollywood Bowl.
Pompeo bought the house for $1.35 million back in 2005, about six months after the premiere of “Grey’s Anatomy.” She was in her mid-30s at the time, and had reluctantly auditioned for the role of Dr. Meredith Grey to help make ends meet, she said in a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter.
She had no idea the show would go on to become a multibillion-dollar franchise, spanning 14 seasons and counting
Today, virtually everything in Pompeo’s life is different: She got married, had three kids, won a string of awards, and successfully negotiated a new, $20-million-per-year contract, making her Hollywood’s highest-paid actress in a prime-time drama.
And so, it’s time to move on from her charming two-bedroom, two-bath house in Los Angeles, which Pompeo recently listed for $2.8 million. Originally built in 1923, the Spanish-style bungalow packs a lot of amenities into its relatively diminutive 2,456 square feet.
Exteriorrealtor.comThe home’s nearly 10,000-square-foot lot is situated on a hill, and surrounded by tall hedges and trees, making it the perfect property for a privacy-obsessed celebrity.
Pompeo’s carved, arched wooden front door opens to a soaring, two-story-tall living room, with nearly floor-to-ceiling arched windows and a giant, Spanish-style fireplace.
Living roomrealtor.comThe home’s bohemian informal dining room has an oversized, rough-hewn table with benches, and Moroccan-inspired light fixtures. That leads into the utilitarian kitchen, which has a commercial-grade Viking range, stainless steel appliances, and steel countertops around the industrial-style kitchen sink.

The real star of the listing, arguably, is the Mediterranean-style yard, which has a rectangular pool, lemon trees, olive trees, and outdoor entertainment spaces.
