‘Bones’ Star John Francis Daley Picks Up Encino Post-Modern (EXCLUSIVE)

Location:
Encino, Calif.
Price:
$3.925 million
Size:
5,458 square feet, 3-4 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 half bathrooms

John Francis Daley, an actor and writer who got his showbiz start on the cult classic series “Freaks and Geeks” and more recently co-starred in the popular crime dramedy “Bones,” has splashed out more than $3.9 million for a post-modern contemporary sequestered down a long private drive shared with one other home in the affluent hills above Encino, Calif. The almost 5,500-square-foot residence, on an elevated parcel of nearly an acre, with panoramic views over a wide swathe of the San Fernando Valley, has three en suite bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms plus a poolside bathroom with exterior entrance and an attached casita with another half bathroom. 

The front door opens directly into a cavernous entertainment space divided by a fireplace with a stainless steel clad flue theatrically suspended from the ceiling. A turquoise-colored wet bar anchors one end of the unconventionally shaped space, and a sleekly outfitted kitchen at the opposite end features lustrous snow-white cabinets and a doublewide island with vibrant cherry-red counter top. 

Two en suite guest bedrooms and a plushly appointed home theater complete the main floor; the master suite occupies the entire second floor with floor-to-ceiling windows, a huge walk-in closet and a sleek bathroom. There’s also a projector and drop-down screen plus private access to a roof terrace with wrap-around views. Large banks of glass slip into the walls and merge the house to outdoor living spaces that span about 4,300 square feet, with covered patios, sunny terraces, a swimming pool and spa and an outdoor kitchen and dining room that adjoin a casita with half bathroom. 

The seller was represented by Sebastian Wolski and Jason Perez of the Sebastian Wolski Team at Compass and the buyer by Marc Silver at Sotheby’s International Realty.

Daley, co-writer with Jonathan Goldstein of the 2015 installment of National Lampoon’s “Vacation” film series as well as the screenplay for the 2017 box office blockbuster “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” continues to own a mid-century residence high above L.A.’s Laurel Canyon with two bedrooms, two bathrooms and an over-the-mountaintop view of the downtown skyline that he acquired in early 2013 for $1.35 million.
