Comedian Chris Hardwick, whose offbeat humor embraces nerdiness, has purchased a house in the Hollywood Hills for $2.05 million. Out-of-the-ordinary features include an outdoor mosaic tile bath with a 200-year-old faucet and a log cabin art studio. The 4,200-square-foot home has wrought-iron balconies, vaulted ceilings, two fireplaces, four bedrooms and four bathrooms. There are terraced gardens and stone walls on the quarter-acre lot. Even though the 1924 house recently underwent a three-year makeover, Hardwick has some plans of his own and has hired Finton Construction to complete the work.
