Australian actress Alycia Debnam-Carey is fearlessly setting down some real estate roots in Tinseltown, just minutes from Hollywood.

The Sydney-born star of Fear the Walking Dead and The 100 has paid about $US1.2 million ($A1.8 million) for her 1920s Spanish-style starter house in Los Angeles, which spans a bit more than 92.9 square metres of living space with two bedrooms and two baths.

The petite casita is completely walled and surrounded by a tall hedge for celeb-style privacy and features an attached one-car garage and one-car driveway for off-street parking.

Inside, the renovated home sports chic neutral interior decor with honey-hued hardwood floors and whitewashed walls.

The living room has a fireplace and large windows for plenty of natural light; the kitchen, while quite petite, includes eat-in bar seating, luxe Bosch appliances and an adjacent breakfast nook.

The master suite, secluded in its own mini-wing, includes a private bath with walls of painted brick and both bedrooms offer French doors that allow direct access to the gardens.
