Actor and Hollywood scion Jessica Capshaw and Christopher Gavigan, co-founder and Chief Product Officer of entrepreneurial actor Jessica Alba’s eco-product conglomerate The Honest Company, have hung a $13.75 million asking price on their tastefully appointed home along a premiere street in the ritzy Riviera neighborhood in L.A.’s posh Pacific Palisades community.
Capshaw, daughter of retired actor Kate Capshaw, which makes her the stepdaughter of Hollywood heavyweight Steven Spielberg, spent a few years on David E. Kelley’s legal drama “The Practice” before she began a stint of nearly a decade, from 2009-2018, on Shonda Rhimes’ medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy.” And, she’s all set to next appear on the silver screen in “Dear Zoe,” an indie adaptation of Philip Beard’s 2005 epistolary young-adult novel of the same name.
The asking price is an enviably profitable chunk over the exactly $10 million the well-connected couple paid for the handsome East Coast-y traditional in a clandestine off-market deal a bit more than five years ago. At the time of their purchase, the more than 7,500-square-foot home was not yet completed but has since bloomed into a sophisticated and inviting family home that is both refined and relaxed with half a dozen bedrooms and as many bathrooms.
Secured behind locked gates, protected with a top-notch security system and obscured by the leafy canopies of a variety of mature specimen trees on a corner parcel of just over one-third of an acre, the graciously proportioned home comfortably accommodates both formal and casual entertaining, while myriad state-of-the-art features include HEPA+ air filtration, a water filtering system, a whole-house audio system, and ozone filtration for the swimming pool.
