The former Hollywood Hills home of married actors Beth Behrs and Michael Gladis has come for sale at about $2 million. The couple, she best known for her role on the powerhouse primetime sitcoms “2 Broke Girls” and “The Neighborhood,” and he a “Mad Men” alum currently starring in the Showtime dark fantasy series “Penny Dreadful: City of Angels,” have owned the home since 2014 when they bought it for not quite $1.5 million from another, now former showbiz couple, Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson. Listed with Josh Myler of The Agency, the walled and gated architectural villa offers urbane sophistication with lustrous, ebony wood floors, bright white walls and stylishly up-to-date kitchen and bathrooms that feature vintage details. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms in close to 2,600 square feet.
A secured courtyard entrance leads to a discreet front door that opens directly into a cozily proportioned sitting room where a humble, vintage brick fireplace is flanked by snazzy floating display shelves. Just off the entrance/sitting room, a generous, light-filled dining room doubles as a library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, and a separate family room’s four single-pane picture windows frame quintessential Los Angeles views of the surrounding palm trees. With retro penny-tile flooring and a swanky collection of appliances that include an eye-poppingly pricey imported range, the chef-accommodating kitchen opens to a romantic courtyard garden under a vine-laden pergola.
The main part of the residence contains a guest bedroom/study and modern bathroom, as well as a serene master suite. There’s a minimalist fireplace between inset glass shelving and French doors open to a large deck for al fresco dining and lounging with an over-the-treetops sunset and city lights view. A separate, lower-level guesthouse provides tons of privacy and space with a living room, an adjoining bedroom, a separate kitchen and a simple bathroom. The guesthouse spills out to leafy gardens that offer both covered and sun-splashed terraces amid verdant plantings that include thickets of bamboo and citrus trees.
Behrs and Gladis have moved on to a charming, eclectically sophisticated home in a trendy, family-oriented area of the San Fernando Valley that they scooped up last year for about $2.7 million.
