Michael C. Hall Lists Los Feliz Micro-Compound (EXCLUSIVE)

SELLER: Michael C. Hall
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $4,850,000
SIZE: 5,618 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: A fully updated and upgraded 1920s Spanish Colonial residence in Los Angeles’s star-studded Los Feliz neighborhood, owned by veteran stage and screen actor Michael C. Hall, has popped up for sale with an asking price of $4.85 million. Property records show Mister Hall shelled out $3.825 million for the property not quite three years ago, in May 2013, and, as avid celebrity real estate watchers surely recall, this is not the first time the seven-time Emmy nominated “Dexter” and “Six Feet Under” star has attempted to sell the property that was briefly available on the open market over the summer of 2014 with a price tag of $4.5 million. As per current listing details, the comfortably deluxe micro-compound contains a total of six bedrooms and six bathrooms spread throughout a 5,618-square-foot main house, a one-bedroom and one-bathroom detached guesthouse, and a separate three-car garage set at the tail end of a long, gated driveway that runs up the side the of the approximately .35-acre parcel.

A low-walled but shrubbery-shielded entry garden leads to an arched portico and central entry and stair hall that extends the full depth of the residence. To one side is a roomy and not particularly “formal” formal living room with fireplace, wood-beamed ceiling, and a full wall of built-in bookshelves that surround a trio of six-pane windows that overlook the front courtyard garden. On the opposite side of the entrance halls there’s a TV lounge/den that links directly through to the kitchen and, hence, might easily be utilized as a proper dining room. Rustic, barn-style doors in the living room slide open on wall-mounted tracks to a window-lined room furnished as a sunny and generously proportioned dining room that, in turn, wraps around to a farmhouse-style kitchen with double wide center island, slab marble counter tops on dove grey Shaker style cabinetry, white subway tile back splashes, and a full assemblage of high-grade stainless steel appliances. A partly subterranean level, accessed by a staircase between the dining room and kitchen, encompasses a media/recreation room with fireplace along with a staff bedroom and bathroom.

There are, as far as we can tell, three en-suite guest/family bedrooms on the second floor of the main residence as well as a spacious corner master suite with beamed and vaulted exposed wood ceiling, walk-in closet, and bathroom decked out with a grey subway tiled steam shower, soaking tub for two, double-sink vanity, and a private cubicle for the toilet. A small dining terrace outside the kitchen and dining room steps down to a flagstone-tile patio with simple, rectangular swimming pool that gives way to a wee patch of tree and shrubbery edged lawn that wraps around the guesthouse and runs behind the garage.

Mister Hall, who has spent a good part of the last couple of years in New York City where he did a six-month run in the long-running Broadway hit “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” before he earned critical accolades in the recently wrapped off-Broadway production of the sensationally surrealistic David Bowie-composed musical “Lazarus,” has been a property gossip staple the last four or five years. With his second ex-wife and “Dexter” co-star Jennifer Carpenter he previously owned a contemporary residence in the Outpost Estates area of Los Angeles that was sold in August 2012 for $1,837,500 and in July 2012 he paid $1.95 million for a quirky, 1920s Spanish Revival-style mini-compound near Beachwood Canyon in the Hollywood Hills that he sold in January 2014 for exactly $2 million.

The Hall property in Los Feliz is represented by Jeff Kohl and Josh Myler at The Agency.
