Jonathan Scott, Zooey Deschanel House Tour Photos: Los Angeles Home
Stylish excavations! Property Brothers star Jonathan Scott and actress Zooey Deschanel spent two years remodeling their California home, and it turned out absolutely perfect.
“It’s a house that suits our tastes and needs, aesthetically and functionally,” said the new girl the actress gushed about their gorgeous space in the new issue of Drew + Jonathan revealavailable on newsstands, on Amazon and on line now. “Jonathan is so amazing at figuring this out. He’s been doing it for his clients for so long, and now he’s doing it for us and our family.
Jonathan and Zooey first saw the property, which is located in the Brentwood neighborhood of Los Angeles, in the spring of 2020. The five-bedroom home was built in 1938 and designed by the iconic former Hollywood architect. Gerard Colcord.
“As soon as we walked down the driveway, we knew this home was special,” the Elf the actress said about their first impression of the property. Jonathan added that Zooey’s two children, daughter Elsie and son Charlie, who she shares with her ex-husband Jacob Pechenikapproved of the “beautiful house”.
“When we brought the kids here, they asked, ‘Do we live in a park?’ joked Jonathan. “The abundant trees on the property make it the perfect place for kids – and perhaps a kid at heart named Drew – to climb and play and for us to watch them sitting in the shade.”
As for the stylish home, the celebrity couple, who started dating in 2019, joined forces during the “hands-on” renovation process. “Many Saturdays we sat down looking for the right details to add to this house,” said the Yes man actress added
During their collaboration, the couple also did a great job of encapsulating their individual personalities in the house. The HGTV star surprised Zooey, who sings in the musical duo She & Him with Mr. Ward, with a grand piano as a housewarming gift. The 500 days of summer the actress had never owned the great instrument before and is already taking full advantage of it.
Plus, they transformed their “regular patio” into a glamorous sunroom, which Jonathan called his “favorite room in the whole house.”
The room has a glass ceiling, a fountain, olive trees and a balcony that connects to each room.
“Jonathan knows whether an idea is practical or not,” Zooey explained, noting that it was his dream to create this unique space. “And he knew exactly how to turn that patio on the asymmetrical side of the house into a solarium.”
