Word on the real estate street, courtesy of impeccably connected property snitch Yolanda Yakketyyak, is that “Star Trek” scion Rod Roddenberry, son of sci-fi icon Gene Roddenberry and the CEO of Roddenberry Entertainment, has picked up a brand-new, ultramodern Starship Enterprise worthy residence in West Hollywood, Calif., last listed at just under $5 million. The walled and gated residence, one of a handful of aggressively contemporary houses on a plum block otherwise lined with vintage 1920s Spanish bungalows, measures in at just over 5,800 square feet of voluminous, glass-walled living space over three elevator-serviced floors with six bedrooms and six full and two half bathrooms.

A glass door pivots open to a huge, open-plan entertainment space with a striking, glass-railed floating staircase next to a dining area under a space-age light fixture. The open kitchen features walnut-toned wood cabinets and white-marble countertops that waterfall over the ends of a doublewide center island.

Upstairs, the master suite has a fireplace and two private terraces, the larger off the bedroom and the smaller unexpectedly accessible through a glass door in the white-marble-sheathed shower space. A 2,000-plus-square-foot subterranean level, finished to the same sleek standards as the rest of the house, offers a state-of-the-art screening room, a massage/fitness room and a spacious, L-shaped family room with a wall of windows that slides open to a slim, concrete-lined underground patio with a wall-mounted gas fireplace.
Privatized by towering hedges, the backyard accommodates a lap-lane swimming pool with inset spa.

Roddenberry, an executive producer on the between-seasons “Star Trek: Discovery” series, owns at least two other multi-million dollar homes in Los Angeles including an almost 7,000-square-foot, canyon-side architectural tucked down a long, gated driveway near the tippy-top of the celeb-favored Nichols Canyon area he acquired in 2009 for $4.45 million.
