When Meghan Markle, now Duchess of Sussex and a princess of the United Kingdom, first got her acting part in Suits in 2011, she was married to Trevor Engelson. They rented this charming Colonial-style home in L.A.’s Hancock Park neighborhood, a stone’s throw from downtown Hollywood.
The house’s sections
It is now for sale priced at $1.8 million. Filled with sunlight bouncing off of white walls and bright minimalist decor, 1924
Colonial measures 2,262-square-feet with four bedrooms, three baths, family room, living room with fireplace and dining area, all on an open plan.
The eat-in kitchen is also filled with natural light and white cabinets are covered with marble countertops. The dining room opens onto a patio for entertaining and there is a two-car garage with additional parking.
Meghan Markle’s professional path
Although romantics love to believe that Markle’s marriage to Prince Harry was a real-life Cinderella story, she had been starring in Suits for six years and was paid, at what Fortune estimates, $450,000 per show. In addition, her two clothing lines were popular, selling out quickly and her fashion-lifestyle blog was also pulling in about $80,000 annually. By the time Markle
became engaged to Prince Harry, her estimated wealth was already hovering at $5 million.
House for Sale
Although Markle was divorced from Engelson in 2013 and married Prince Harry in 2018, with whom she now has a child, it is rumored that the Sussexes may be looking for a second home in California where Megan’s mother still lives. But would they be
interested in this home? Not likely. Times and fortunes have changed and security needs have changed, but for Meghan followers who themselves have big dreams, it is the perfect house. Now for sale at $1.8 million. The listing agent is Sheri Bienstock of The Bienstock Group, Los Angeles.
