(MCT)—Constance Zimmer of “House of Cards” put her home in the Hollywood Hills up for sale at $1.175 million and in 10 days it was in escrow.
The 1940s home has been updated while maintaining some of its early contemporary vibe. Walls of glass in the vaulted-ceiling living room open to a wraparound deck. The two-bedroom, 1.75-bathroom house has another, lower-level deck with a hot tub. There are views of the Hollywood sign and the cityscape.
A busy actress, Zimmer, 43, is also part of the cast this year of “The Newsroom” and “Grey’s Anatomy.” She will have a role in the midseason sitcom “Growing Up Fisher” and will guest star in the pilot of “Complications.”
Her earlier television series work includes “Entourage,” “Love Bites” and “Boston Legal.”
Public records show that Zimmer bought the property in 2006 for $1.149 million.

There is a roomy bar, a glass-enclosed wine room and an oak-paneled office.
