Shonda Rhimes In Hancock Park, Estate of the Day
Sometimes it seems that celebrities don't really want to buy a house in Los Angeles unless another celebrity has lived there first. Earlier this year "Grey's Anatomy" producer Shonda Rhimes bought Beck's old place in Hancock Park. We had watched that house, once listed as high as $9 million, received a host of price cuts. The Real Estalker reveals that that home sold for $5.7 million back in March leaving Rhimes with the task of selling her own home in the same area. The home that Rhimes is selling is a five-bedroom Mediterranean which was built in 1926. The Real Estalker reports that Rhimes bought the home in 2005 for $3.885 million.
It looks like Rhimes moved on a while ago. This home is styled within an inch of its life. But I suspect that the colorful paint jobs were done before Rhimes moved out. The home has great old bones with dark-stained hardwood floors, carved stone moldings on the entrance into the living room and beamed ceilings. Wide windows and French doors create a sun-filled open space. The second floor has four bedrooms including a master suite with two walk-in closets with dressing areas, a large master bath and a covered balcony. The backyard has a swimming pool, barbecue center and a very cute children's playhouse that looks like a Victorian house. The two-car garage has been converted into a book-shelved office and changing room. This home is listed at $3.695 million.
