After more than 16 years, Dharma has officially left the Laughlin Park building. Property records show Jenna Elfman has sold her longtime Los Feliz home in a $4.6 million off-market deal, more than double the nearly $2.2 million she paid for the place way back in 2004. The buyer, deeds also reveal, is a non-famous local man.
Unlike most houses in Laughlin Park — a historic gated community known for its many celebrity residents — the former Elfman residence is not Spanish or Mediterranean in style, but rather a midcentury modern that’s been updated into a sleek contemporary. Walled and gated for privacy, and shoehorned onto a half-acre lot that’s notably long and narrow, the roughly 4,500-square-foot structure packs in four bedrooms and a total of 5.5 baths.
Inside the house, white oak hardwood floors flow throughout, and there are floor-to-ceiling walls of glass in both the family and living rooms, the latter of which includes a fireplace and custom built-in bookcases. Views take in a towering grove of mature sycamore trees and stretch to the Griffith Observatory.
Teal-colored cabinets are featured in the skylit kitchen, topped by snow white countertops, and there’s the full bevy of luxury stainless appliances. The master suite offers a spacious bath, walk-in closet, and a large bedroom that opens to a private patio with long views over the neighboring hills. There are two additional guest bedrooms, plus a separate in-law suite on the home’s lower level, complete with a full kitchen and bathroom.
Outdoors, the resort-worthy yard features a towering bamboo forest out front — effectively eliminating any neighbors — and a fully landscaped backyard with outdoor kitchen, BBQ center, al fresco dining space, and a vaguely arrowhead-shaped plunge pool with waterfall feature. Other household upgrades include a state-of-the-art security system with cameras, an outdoor firepit, and an indoor gym.
Other Laughlin Park homeowners include Angelina Jolie, Natalie Portman, Ashley Benson, Ellen Pompeo, will.i.am, and Kristen Stewart — just to name a few.
Now in her late 40s, Elfman still remains best-known for her role as Dharma in the hit ABC sitcom “Dharma & Greg,” though she’s appeared in numerous other (mostly short-lived) TV series and sitcoms. She currently stars as a series regular on AMC’s “Fear the Walking Dead” juggernaut.
