Actor James Spader Sells Windsor Square Home

Actor James Spader sold this Windsor Square home for $4 million, according to Variety

Actor James Spader sold his home on Windsor Blvd in Windsor Square for $4 million in a quiet off-market real estate transaction according to Mark David, the “Real Estalker” writing the “Dirt” at entertainment industry trade publication Variety.  Spader bought the classic 1920s Mediterranean Revival-style residence in August 2004 for a bit less than $2.25 million from local realtor Lisa Hutchins and her husband Mark.

The nearly 3,700-square-foot house, with four bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, sits amid a thick grove of towering JamerSpaderhousefrontpalm trees on a flat, mid-block parcel of nearly one-third of an acre. According to online marketing materials, the “recrafted” residence includes “vintage-inspired restored baths” and a “restaurant-equipped” eat-in kitchen with soapstone countertops, according to David.

However, the “thick grove of towering palm trees,” considered an unusual front garden design by some, is no longer quite so thick. A quick tour today revealed the new owners are doing some trimming and thinning of the trees in the front and the back.

Though the architecture of the neighborhood is protected by the neighborhood Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ), there are no protections for trees, regardless of their popularity.
