A mid-century house on the market in Encino comes with a long TV history. The 6,000-square-foot house served as Jack Bauer’s home in the first season of “24” and also appeared in “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation” and “Beverly Hills, 90210.”
The counter-terrorism expert moved to a smaller place after the first season of the Fox series. While the exterior shown on TV was a different house, its sleek interior was a good match for Keifer Sutherland’s character and the house was also used for several other characters’ homes in the first season.
The bulk of the season was shot in nearby Woodland Hills, making the Encino house at 4620 Rubio Ave. a convenient stop for the show’s crew.
Designed by JR Davidson, who designed homes for the famous Case Study program of influential houses in California, the five-bedroom, six-bathroom house is listed at $3.999 million. It was originally constructed for the Berkson family in 1939, but has been completely updated and remodeled since then.
The one level estate with an attractive swimming pool area has a lot that measures almost two-thirds of an acre. It’s located south of Ventura Blvd. within walking distance of shopping and restaurants.
The listing is handled by Alan Taylor of the John Aaroe Group.
