Though Justin Hartley already owns a modern farmhouse-style mansion in Encino, the “This is Us” star apparently likes the suburban San Fernando Valley neighborhood so much that he’s invested in yet another place there as well. Records show Hartley — who recently wed his former “Young and Restless” costar Sophia Pernas — has shelled out nearly $1.3 million for a significantly smaller three-bedroom, two-bath bungalow nearby.
It’s likely Hartley bought this place as an investment property. In addition to the actor’s $4.6 million primary Encino home, he also owns a rental property near Sherman Oaks that was recently available for rent at $10,500 per month.
As for Hartley’s most recent acquisition, the unassuming 1950s house is tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac close to the 20-acre Sepulveda Basin Community Garden Center. Separated from the sidewalk by a xeriscaped front yard, the stucco and stacked-stone bungalow is fronted by a large bay window with teal green plantation shutters and a stone-clad walkway leading to a small covered porch.
A matching teal front door opens into 1,700 square feet of single-level living space decorated with a generic gray and white palette accented by new hardwood floors and recessed lighting. Among the highlights: a spacious living room courtesy of the large bay window, along with an adjacent dining area that leads to the outdoors via floor-to-ceiling glass sliders. Abutting the dining area is a small galley-style kitchen with dark-gray countertops, a subway tile backsplash, stainless appliances, an eat-in peninsula and an adjacent breakfast nook.
The primary suite has a picture window overlooking the backyard and a walk-in closet, while the bathroom is outfitted with dual vanities and a standalone shower; two more bedrooms in the rear of the house share a full bath. Outdoors, the gated and fenced backyard holds a freeform pool, storage shed and a wooden al fresco dining deck topped by a mature shade tree; there’s also room for two cars elsewhere on the grounds.
The listing was held by Adrienne Tourtelot of Rodeo Realty-Brentwood; Hartley was repped by William Hardege of Edge Property Management.
