‘Master of None’s’ Alan Yang Leases Out Hollywood Hills House (EXCLUSIVE)

Alan Yang’s mid-century bungalow near the end of a long cul-de-sac in the celeb-approved Outpost Estates neighborhood of the Hollywood Hills is available for lease by high-earning renters at $7,000 per month. The former “Parks and Recreation” writer-producer and co-creator of the four-time-Emmy-nominated Netflix series “Master of None” purchased the hillside residence in August 2011 for a bit north of $1.2 million. At just under 2,000 square feet, the two-story house — once featured on the home-design website Apartment Therapy — is relatively modest in size, with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, according to online marketing materials. Designer Sally Breer was reponsible for many of the home’s design upgrades.

The combination living and dining room on the upper floor has a fireplace clad in ruggedly masculine reclaimed-wood planks and a room-wide bank of windows providing bird’s-eye city views that, on a clear day, extend to the Pacific Ocean. The master bedroom upstairs has a vaulted ceiling, and one of the two downstairs bedrooms is outfitted as a library/office with another fireplace, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, and French doors that open to a series of stone terraces wedged into the planted hillside below the house and linked by a serpentine stairway. By far the most unexpected and idiosyncratically compelling feature is a snazzy, speakeasy-style lounge hidden behind a bookshelf that serves as a secret door. Yang joked to Apartment Therapy that the speakeasy would also make a good panic room in case of emergency.

In addition to his TV work, Yang wrote the screenplay for the upcoming feature “We Love You” from YouTube Red and Awesomeness Films, starring YouTube personality Yousef Erakat and Vine star Lele Pons.
