Michael C. Hall Flips Out In Los Feliz

SELLER: Michael C. Hall
LOCATION: Los Angeles, CA
PRICE: $4,500,000
SIZE: 5,618 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: Several little birdies have popped by Your Mama’s digital nest to kindly let us know that television’s favorite Emmy-nominated and Golden Globe-winning serial killer Michael C. Hall of the no longer airing “Dexter” program is having a bit of a real estate flip out in Los Angeles’ Los Feliz area. Just a bit more than a year ago that Mister Hall paid $3,825,000 for a 1920s Spanish Colonial style micro-compound that he put back up for sale this week with a $4.5 million asking price.

Current listing details show the gated, .35 acre property — just a handful of blocks from the renovated 1920s Spanish casa Jack Osbourne sold in May (2014) for $3.2 million — has a total of six bedrooms and six bathrooms in three structures: a two-story, 5,618 square foot main house; a separate, single-level guest house of unknown size; and a fully detached three-care garage at the tail end of a long, gated driveway.

Behind a low wall and a dense thicket of trees and shrubs, a shady portico and side-lit front door opens to a center hall entry. Pale blonde wood floors run throughout the interconnected main floor living spaces that include, just inside the front door, an informally dressed “formal” living room with modern-edged over-sized firebox, exposed wood beams than run in rather unusual pairs, and a full wall of book-lined bookshelves. Barn-style doors slide open and join the living room to a sunny formal dining room wrapped on two walls with eight pane windows that fall almost to the floor and just about reach the ceiling.

The adjoining, chef-accommodating kitchen has dove-gray Shaker-style cabinetry, lightly veined white marble counter tops, a white subway tile back splash that extends all the way to the ceiling, and a homey, white porcelain farmhouse sink to balance the shiny sleekness of the stainless steel appliances.

A swinging door links the kitchen to a t.v. lounge/den that overlooks the front garden and is also accessible from the entrance hall. Should the home’s next resident prefer, the den would make a right proper formal dining room and the current dining space might then be pressed into use as a den/family room. But anyways…

Listing photos show Mister Hall used one of the secondary upstairs bedrooms as a home office simply furnished with a nubby, graphic pattern rug, a polished rosewood (or maybe teak) mid-century modern desk that probably cost a fortune and a rather delectable, button tufted black leather chesterfield.

A vaulted and exposed wood beam ceiling provides a industrial-tinged earthiness to the upper level master suite where six-pane windows grouped in threes line two walls and frame over-the-trees- and rooftops sky views. Not that any of the children give a hoot — or should — but Your Mama finds these increasingly popular, train station proportioned master bathrooms to be  — in the main — vulgar. Hence we approve of Mister Hall’s efficiently modest but still well-equipped master bathroom. A long, marble-topped, double-sink vanity stands opposite a free-standing soaking tub and side-facing glassed-in steam shower. Y’all can say what you want but this property gossip can’t get enough of white-grouted gray tile treatments in both bathrooms and kitchens and we always appreciate a separate cubby for the crapper in any residential restroom.

A small, wrought iron railed deck off the kitchen and dining area at the rear of the residence steps down to a gravel-lined flag stone terrace and simple, rectangular swimming pool. Set down a few more steps from the pool is a spacious guesthouse and, a few more steps down from there, a tight motor court with garage access.

No word has come to Your Mama on where Mister Hall might be headed next but he’s been a busy property shuffling beaver the last couple of years who appears to have a hardcore case of The Celebrity Real Estate Fickle. In August 2012 he sold a 3,525-square-foot contemporary-minded house in the Outpost Estates area for $1.837 million. Just prior, in July, he coughed up $1.95 million for a 1920s Spanish Revival in the Hollywood Hills that he listed a just month later for $2.35 million and sold in January (2014) for $2 million.
