He may have bought it less than a year ago, via blind trust, for $5.7 million but multiple sources have told this property gossip that William Morris Endeavor partner and board member Rick Rosen already has his newly built mansion in Encino, Calif., back on the open market with an asking price of $5.795 million. Set behind gates on a slight rise in the rich and leafy Royal Oaks neighborhood, the multi-gabled, Colonial-esque mansion measures in, according to current listing details, at 7,753 square feet with half a dozen en suite bedrooms and a total of 7.5 bathrooms. Walnut wood floors run throughout the all-but brand-new abode that encompasses a sky-lit double-height foyer flanked by formal living and dining rooms, along with a library/office lined with oversized windows and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves.
A well-stocked butler’s pantry/wet bar connects the dining room to a cook-friendly kitchen outfitted with marble counter tops, top-grade appliances that include three dishwashers and a coffee bar/beverage center, a walk-in pantry, built-in breakfast banquette and an adjoining family room. Front and rear stairs lead to the second floor bedrooms where the vaulted-ceiling master suite is luxuriously complete with sitting area, fireplace, private terrace, dual bathrooms with tootsie-warming heated floors and a pair of fitted dressing rooms.
Numerous French doors open the back of the house to the landscaped backyard that includes a wrap-around veranda and an outdoor living room with TV-surmounted fireplace. The relatively compact but carefully organized yard also accommodates lush lawns, an L-shaped kitchen/grilling station, outdoor shower, fire pit and saltwater swimming pool with inset spa.
