In the hills beneath Griffith Park, a stately English Tudor owned by Fred Armisen just hit the market for $3.5 million.
Armisen, the busy actor behind shows such as “Portlandia” and “Los Espookys,” bought the 1920s residence for just over $2 million in 2016, records show.
He made a few cosmetic changes during his six-year stay, painting the kitchen a cool shade of green and adding wallpaper in the dining room and bedroom. Design highlights include custom moldings, French doors, a tile fireplace and breakfast nook with bay windows.

Elsewhere are five bedrooms and four bathrooms in 3,500 square feet. The house overlooks Griffith Park from one side and downtown Los Angeles from the other, with brick patios taking advantage of the hillside setting.
Laura Stupsker of the Agency holds the listing.
A “Saturday Night Live” alum, Armisen has appeared in dozens of shows over the last two decades including “Moonbase 8” and “Documentary Now!,” which he co-created with Bill Hader and Seth Meyers. The 55-year-old also serves as bandleader for “Late Night With Seth Meyers.”
Before landing in Los Feliz, he lived in a 1920s Craftsman in Silver Lake.
