Michael Chiklis Lists Hamptons-Style Spread in Sherman Oaks

Location:
Sherman Oaks, Calif.
Price:
$5.195 million
Size:
5,773 square feet, 4 bedrooms, 3 full and 2 half bathrooms plus 1-bed/1-bath guesthouse

After more than twenty years in residence, busy actor and occasional TV producer Michael Chiklis listed his celeb-pedigreed home in a leafy, affluent neighborhood in Sherman Oaks, Calif. with an asking price of $5.195 million. The popular, Emmy-winning star of “The Shield,” after stints on “Vegas” and “American Horror Story: Freak Show,” now a series regular on the primetime drama “Gotham” and set to appear on the silver screen opposite Virginia Madsen and Cory Michael Smith in the upcoming AIDS drama “1985,” has owned the property since late 1996 when he bought it for $1.1 million from “Baywatch” star David Hasselhoff.

A double-gated, brick-accented driveway swoops along the front of the white-shingled, Hamptons-style residence that sits on a flat, .62-acre parcel and, per marketing materials, features interior architecture by renowned designer Windsor Smith, the same gal who designed Gwyneth Paltrow’s snazzy Mandeville Canyon mansion. Rustic-luxe wide plank Vermont Pine floorboards run throughout and add a warm, pleasantly low-key vibe to the sprawling, single-story residence that has four bedrooms and three full and two half bathrooms in 5,773-square-feet plus an attached two-story guesthouse with separate entrance, private living room, bedroom and bathroom.

A homey, wisteria-draped front porch leads to formal living and dining rooms, the former with fireplace and vaulted ceiling and the latter with a pressed tin tray ceiling. With white marble counter tops, vaulted ceiling and top-grade appliances that include two glass-fronted fridge/freezers, the eat-in kitchen, is unexpectedly zhooshed up with Moroccan-style pendant lights and lined along two walls with French doors. The adjoining family room features a white brick fireplace under a vaulted ceiling with muscular exposed trusses along with a full wall of transom topped French doors and there is also a library/office lined with bead board accented built-ins, a billiards room with French doors and a media lounge with stone fireplace, vaulted ceiling and drop-down movie screen.

A brick-paved courtyard outside the dining room and guesthouse has a built-in fire pit while back of the house wraps around a brick-paved dining terrace lined with French doors to the kitchen and family room. The master suite opens to an intimate private veranda and a huge porch outside the kitchen and billiards room overlooks a deep, grassy and desirably hedge-privatized backyard with swimming pool, spa, sport court and gardening shed.
