This Is Us star Mandy Moore bought a four-bedroom, three-bathroom mid-century modern home in Pasadena, California for $2.645 million.
The actress and singer, who plays the role of Rebecca Pearson on the NBC hit drama, closed on the stunning property back in December. According to Mansion Global, the property was designed by well-know Chicago-area R. Harold Took, and it was reportedly completed in 1950, a year after his death.
The actress also gave a tour of her newly decorated home for Architectural Digest.

A New Chapter
"This house signifies the next chapter of my life — as an adult, a woman, and a performer," Moore said during the interview for Architectural Digest. "I was able to pour all of who I am into making this place."

Keeping the Bones
Moore said she fell in love with the house's Mid-century structure, however a lengthy restoration was required before moving in as alterations in the '90s had hidden some of the home's original classic details and left it with clashing circular additions and dated traditional detailing.
"We wanted to recapture the home's original spirit without delving into a slavish period restoration" Moore told Architectural Digest. "We tried to imagine what Zook would have done if he were designing it today."prevnext
Partnering Up With Pros

Moore, who shared peeks of the home throughout the restoration, praised her design team on Instagram saying they singlehandedly made the new house a home for her and her family.

The laundry room
Despite all the luxurious features, Moore's favorite space is reportedly the laundry room.
"Mandy actually loves doing laundry," Samuel said on her blog. "So we wanted to make the room a place she would want to spend some time in and it is right off the kitchen so all the more reason to make it a statement all on its own.
The actress has a few requirements for her dream laundry space, one was that it had a dedicated place for her to hang dry clothing, another was there was a "good amount of space for folding and the third was "to make it beautiful".prevnext
The property is also equipped with a massive walk-in pantry designed by Instagram famous organizing team The Home Edit.
