Teen movie star, sister to Hilary Duff

Haylie Duff, teeny-bopper-movie actress and sister to Hilary Duff, just sold her chic, semi-modest (by celeb standards, anyway) Toluca Lake home at a slight loss. Property records show that Haylie bought the five-bedroom, six-bathroom, 4,064-square-foot home on June 6, 2008, for $1,750,000. And though it was originally listed for $1,799,000, the elder Duff sister took a $30,000 loss on her bachelorette pad when she sold it on February 14, 2013, for $1,720,000.
Built in 2007, the New England traditional home sits behind privacy gates — perfect for any young Hollywood starlet — in the heart of Toluca Lake. The neighborhood, situated 12 miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, is an up-and-coming celebrity enclave that sister Hilary Duff, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Alan Thicke, and oodles of other household names call home.
Duff’s just-sold crib is an entertainer’s dream with a built-in sound system pumping beats throughout the dramatic living room, formal dining room (with coffered ceiling and French doors), and open great room, out to a covered flagstone patio, which overlooks the grassy yard with pool and spa. The family room — which boasts a fireplace and French doors — opens to a chefs’ kitchen with Carrara marble counters, tongue-and-groove ceilings, dual islands, a Viking stove, and a breakfast area featuring wood floors, crown mouldings, and wainscoting.
All bedrooms have their own private baths, and the downstairs bedroom suite may be ideal for guests. A sky lit staircase ascends to the second level, where the luxurious master suite offers a cathedral ceiling, fireplace, dual walk-in closets, and bath with two vanities, a frameless glass shower, and freestanding soaking tub.
A quick peek at IMBD shows that Haylie has been keeping the paychecks coming in with a series of low-visibility movie gigs and television series appearances. No telling why she sold, but we’re keeping our eyes out for her next move.
