It's tempting when an actor plays a beloved character on television to assume that the actor and the character are the same. Today's estate is proof of the difference between a character and the actor who played him. This Tudor home in the Hancock Park area of Los Angeles would never do for Jack McFarland from "Will & Grace" but it's perfect for Sean Hayes, the actor who played him. You are not getting flamboyance here. The Real Estalker Mama, who first had this story, found it a bit stuffy and it's a fair criticism. It's definitely not the Frankie Muniz style pop art funhouse, it's the home of a person who is settled in. But oh we should all be able to settle in like this. One of the Real Estalker Mama's commenters mentioned that it seemed like a Midwestern luxury home and it does remind me of something one might see in Winnetka, Illinois. The wood-paneled office, the formal dining room and the grand staircase all give it the feel of the lovely home you must leave behind in order to become a Hollywood star.
The four-bedroom home has all sorts of lovely spaces. There is a marble and wood master bathroom that's nearly living room sized. The yard features a charming pool area and an outdoor fireplace and entertaining area. The Real Estalker Mama reports that Hayes bought the home in 2001 when it was listed at $1.575 million so no matter what he's going to make some money on the deal. As well he should (although maybe not quite as much he's hoping for with an $8.95 million listing).
