Turner Honcho Kevin Reilly Channels in on Brentwood Home (EXCLUSIVE)

Good ol’ real estate yenta Yolanda Yakketyyak first let the real estate cat out of the bag and public property records confirm that high-powered entertainment industry executive Kevin Reilly, president of TBS and TNT and chief creative officer for Turner Entertainment, splashed out a tetch more than $7.4 million for a snazzy new home in the rustically exclusive Mandeville Canyon area of Los Angeles. Listing details show the late-1940s, ranch-style residence, smartly and colorfully reinterpreted by Nicholas/Budd Architects, comes in at just under 6,000 square feet with four bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, including a roomy master suite with dual bathrooms.

A striking, copper-accented front door opens to an art-gallery-like foyer that leads to elegantly proportioned formal living and dining rooms, both of which have a fireplace, lustrous dark-brown hardwood floors, and generous expanses of crisp white walls designed to highlight large contemporary artwork. A raised snack bar divides an expensively outfitted eat-in kitchen from the family room, which has a vaulted, wood-paneled, and generously sky-lit ceiling plus a bank of custom built-ins that incorporate a wet bar, open display shelves, and integrated media equipment. Wood-trimmed floor-to-ceiling glass doors throughout the house open to a series of patios that give way to gardens, a swimming pool, and a spa.

The veteran executive is no stranger to property gossip columns. In 2012, he paid Harrison Ford just under $8.2 million for a Gerard Colcord-designed residence on a city-view parcel just below the Getty Museum in Brentwood that was sold in April 2016 for $12 million to billionaire Snapchat co-founder and CEO Evan Spiegel and his fiancée, supermodel Miranda Kerr.
