Screenwriter, producer and director Ryan Murphy is selling his Mediterranean-style California villa. Known for his brilliant and creative mind, Murphy has been the creator/co-creator of shows like American Horror Story, Glee, American Crime Story, and Pose. With his most recent season of “American Horror Story: 1984” airing a few weeks ago, it’s safe to say Murphy has gathered quite a following. Now, he’s decided it’s time to move on from 820 N Roxbury Drive (a home that was also formerly owned by famous actress Diane Keaton) and look for a buyer.
Listed at just under $18 million, the home boasts sophistication with a touch of Spanish and Italian inspiration. At 9,212 square feet, seven bedrooms, and nine bathrooms, the listing agent describes the home as the “perfect blend of old Hollywood architecture and modern amenities for today’s lifestyle.” The white plaster walls contrast with the terracotta tiled roof that leaves the home feeling like you’ve stepped into paradise. Cacti line the driveway and front exterior walls of the home to give an added feeling of uniqueness.
Upon entering the home, you first walk through a foyer-turned-study, built-in shelving filled with books and pottery lines the walls while a perfectly sized chair invites you into the welcoming home. The living room features high, wooden ceilings with massive gothic-inspired chandeliers lighting the room. During the day, paned glass windows allow natural to flood the space. To the left in the foyer is the formal dining area that has a wall lined with double doors leading out into the home’s courtyard.
The kitchen is completely white, from the cabinetry to the backsplash, and features completely upgraded stainless steel appliances. From the kitchen, terracotta and porcelain tiled floors lead you upstairs where the flow of the home’s architecture continues. Dark wooden beams line the ceiling while the white plaster walls provide a stunning contrast. The master bedroom includes its own balcony, fireplace, and seating area while the massive closet features a marble-topped island as the centerpiece.
The backyard of the home is where the real beauty truly lies. With a large pool and spa, hanging twinkling lights, lush greenery, and a guest house, there’s not much this home doesn’t offer to a future buyer.
