Crooked Media cofounder Jon Favreau recently secured a home in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles— joining his Pod Save America cohost Tommy Vietor who moved there just last month. According to Variety, Favreau, who worked on the presidential campaigns of both John Kerry and Barack Obama and later served in the Obama administration as the director of speechwriting, put down $3.5 million for an updated Tudor-style home spanning 3,245 square feet and comprising four bedrooms and five bathrooms.

Beautiful images of the world taken from the skies

  Beautiful images of the world taken from the skies The planet looks pretty amazing from up high. From rugged stretches of the coast to scenic national parks, many spots take on a whole new dimension when the camera is pointed downwards. We've picked some of our favourite aerial shots that capture the Earth from new heights.

The main structure of the home was built back in 1920, and while the exterior still retains a Tudor-esque aesthetic, the interiors have been recently upgraded with a more contemporary vibe. The main living spaces are all open-plan, with a vaulted whitewashed ceiling and a stately fireplace in the living room. An entire wall of floor-to-ceiling French windows flood the room with natural light. The kitchen offers up a coffered ceiling, patterned white-and-gray tile backsplash, and a bubble light fixture hanging above an oversized central island with a white stone countertop. An adjacent family room boasting another fireplace and built-in bookshelves opens directly onto the backyard through a wall of accordion-style glass doors. The formal dining area is tucked just off the kitchen, with built-in banquet seating and glass-fronted cabinets.

Maximize Veggie-Growing Space with Vertical Gardening

  Maximize Veggie-Growing Space with Vertical Gardening Use a trellis, netting, A-frames or an arbor to create a vertical garden that maximizes space and adds to your harvest.Vertical gardening reduces stooping so harvesting is much easier on the back. It's also easier to spot ripe vegetables, especially green beans and peas that tend to blend in and hide under foliage. Cucumbers and squash can grow straighter and healthier away from soil where they're more vulnerable to mold, slugs and soil-borne maladies.

The front of the residence is one story, but there is a second floor above the back of the house, where three en-suite bedrooms are located. There, the master suite features its own Juliet balcony and spalike bathroom with dual vanities, marble countertops, and a glass-fronted shower that occupies an entire side of the room. The backyard is outfitted with a plunge pool and in-ground spa; a covered patio area for al fresco dining; a modern fire pit and lounge area; and a guest house with its own kitchenette, bedroom, and living and dining areas.

Favreau and his wife are also the owners of a 1920s Spanish-style bungalow in Los Angeles, which they purchased for $1.9 million in 2017. That was the same year he launched Crooked Media, and along with it his popular podcast, which features conversations with journalists, politicians, and activists about current events. Favreau hosts Pod Save America alongside Vietor, Jon Lovett, and Dan Pfeiffer, all former Obama aides.
