Cheyenne Jackson Nabs Nichols Canyon Ranch House

BUYER: Cheyenne Jackson and Jason Landau
LOCATION: Los Angeles, Calif.
PRICE: $1.59 million
SIZE: 1,854 square feet, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

YOUR MAMA’S NOTES: An early morning covert communiqué from the Bizzy Boys at Celebrity Address Aerial alerted to Your Mama and property records confirm that accomplished Broadway star and increasingly in-demand television and movie actor Cheyenne Jackson and his new second husband, Jason Landau — the chisel-chinned couple met early last year while both were in treatment for booze addictions — have shelled out $1.59 million for a remodeled, 1950s ranch house in the Nichols Canyon area of the Hollywood Hills.

Handsome Mister Jackson, six-foot-four, pushing 40 and one of Hollywood’s few openly gay actors, who didn’t take up acting until he was in his late 20s, can claim a slew of Broadway credits (“Alter Boyz,” “All Shook Up,” “The Performers”) and has a handful of feature films in various stages of production but is perhaps best known to the television watching public for recurring roles on “30 Rock” and “Glee.”

Listing details show the comely couple’s new digs sits on an irregularly shaped parcel of more than a third of an acre with three bedrooms and two bathrooms in a modest-by-celeb-standards 1,854 square feet. An open plan living and dining area has a shallow barrel-vaulted ceiling, well-worn hardwood floors, a full wall of floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and a chunky two-sided fireplace. Huge corner windows in the dining room offer sweeping canyon views and wood-framed glass sliders in the living room open to a parking lot-sized deck that runs the full width of the house. The adjoining galley-style kitchen is equipped with high-grade stainless steel appliances and glossy black granite countertops on steel-trimmed black cabinetry.

The larger of the two guest/family bedrooms was furnished by the seller as a den/TV lounge and has more oversized windows and wood-framed glass doors that provide access to the rear deck while the master suite, complete with dressing area and updated bathroom and more massive window openings, opens to a private garden.
