The writer and director currently lives in a different West Hollywood home with his husband, English diver Tom Daley
Dustin Lance Black is officially letting go of his past, in the form of his modest Hollywood Heights starter home. The When We Rise creator’s two-bedroom, one-bathroom house is now on the market for an asking price of $897,000, up substantially from the $525,000 he put down for the home in late 2004. The apartment-size, 1,000-square-foot starter house sits just atop a two-car garage and overlooks Los Angeles’s Hollywood Bowl. It features a sun-drenched living room with hardwood floors, partially paneled walls and floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves.
Other rooms in the home include a dining room painted red with bead-board-accented walls, a cozy kitchen with mint green, retro-style ceramic-tile countertops, and a bathroom with vintage yellow shower tiles and a mosaic-tiled sink. The two bedrooms open out onto a backyard through a set of French doors in each. Black hasn’t lived at the residence for quite some time now. Last May, he married English diver Tom Daley and the newlyweds currently reside in another one of his homes: a $1.5 million, four-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom 1924 English Tudor cottage in West Hollywood. The couple also own a triplex loft in a converted late-19th-century hops-processing warehouse in London.
