If you're going to live in Los Feliz, you might as well buy one of the coolest homes out there. Aziz Ansari, of Parks and Recreation fame, recently bought himself a fancy palatial estate—and a famous one at it.

The Hong Residence in Los Feliz was created in 1968 by architect Roger Hong for his family, and the home was so lauded that it got a shout-out in the L.A. Times Home magazine in 1969, describing the joint as "mother bird hovering protectively over its nest," according to Hollywood Hills Homes.

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom home is 3,016 square feet, and sits on a 12,000 foot square lot, according to the Los Angeles Times. There are vaulted ceilings, a stellar post and beams design, breathtaking views of the city, and a little Zen garden, with a swimming pool and jacuzzi. The old school home throws Hollywood celebrity vibes from the golden era. Real Estate Stalker reported that the comedian bought the house for the price tag of $2.687 million.

This might be a little price to pay for Ansari as he's been moving on up in the industry. His Netflix-exclusive comedy special, Buried Alive, launched on Nov. 1. If anything, we're pretty sure his Parks and Recreation character, Tom Haverford, would be impressed.
