Cheyenne Jackson is on the move, hoisting his Hollywood Hills home on the market at $4.45 million.
The price is bit more than the $4.25 million asked when the property was briefly listed about three years ago and a profitable chunk over the $3.35 million paid in 2017, several years after he married husband Jason Landau and just over a year after the birth of their fraternal twin children.
Set on a high ridge above Laurel Canyon, with wrap-around mountain, canyon, and city views, the enviably private 1.1-acre spread is described in listings held by Jami Nash of Coldwell Banker Realty as a “California ranch meets oasis in the French countryside.”
With three bedrooms and three bathrooms, the modestly proportioned and designer-done single-story main house, painted a dark shade of grey with glossy black trim, is fronted by a huge, gated and brick-paved motor court.
Interiors showcase dark paisley wallpaper in the foyer, rough-hewn wood beams across the raised ceiling in the living room, and a wall of mullioned sliding glass doors in the dining room that lead to a curtained loggia alongside a classic kidney-shaped swimming pool.
Other highlights include a denim-blue kitchen with chef accommodating appliances and a charming built-in breakfast banquette, as well as a spacious principal bedroom that comprises an ample sitting room and simple black-and-white bathroom.
Beyond the pool, a eucalyptus shaded gravel patio sports a giant stone fire pit and glittery canyon framed city lights view, while a brick path meanders past a vast lawn and down a flight of steps to a self-contained guesthouse with outside entrance, private yard, kitchenette, sunroom, and bath.
A stage actor who made his Broadway debut in an originating leading role in the 2005 jukebox musical production “All Shook Up,” inspired by the music of Elvis Presley and the works of William Shakespeare, Jackson soon moved on to a slew of film and television roles, including in “United 93,” “30 Rock,” “Behind The Candelabra,” and “American Horror Story.” More recently he’s held down a part on the primetime sitcom “Call Me Kat,” and he will soon be seen on the silver screen in the upcoming sci-fi ensemble action comedy “Borderlands”
Jackson and Landau recently (and successfully) dipped into house flipping. In the fall of 2019, they shelled out $720,000 for an ordinary ranch house in Encino that they gave a quick and trendy overhaul and sold the following summer for $1.4 million, a notable amount over the $1.2 million asking price.
