Did Kevin McKidd’s character Dr. Owen Hunt ultimately perish in a horrific car crash during the finale of ABC’s long-running medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy” last year? To be honest, it’s not looking good. But fans will just have to wait until the 19th season airs Feb. 24 to see if the trauma surgeon does indeed make the return to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital. Meanwhile, the Scottish-American actor is living out a real-life real estate cliffhanger: Will he, or will he not, finally sell his secluded Los Angeles home that’s lingered on the market for nearly two years?
Situated in the celeb-studded Fryman Canyon area, the 1980s house was originally listed for $4.995 million back in June 2020. It underwent a couple of price reductions, and was even floated for rent at $19,500 per month, only to return to market recently with an even higher $5.15 million ask; that’s $155,000 over the original list price, and significantly more than the $4.6 million McKidd and his private chef wife Arielle Goldrath paid for the place a little over three years ago.
Nestled at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, and securely protected by walls and gates, the two-story structure features five bedrooms and 4.5 baths in 4,300 square feet of living space. Set atop a three-car garage that opens to the tree-shaded motorcourt, the main floor features wide-plank oak hardwood floors and several sets of French doors that open to a travertine-paved piazza ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining,
A massive glass and steel-framed front door pivots into a double-height entry foyer, which flows into a sun-drenched living room anchored by a wood-burning fireplace. Other highlights include a game room with a wet bar, and cozy family room that connects to a gourmet kitchen outfitted with Carrera countertops, high-end appliances and an adjacent dining area with a built-in banquette.
Upstairs, the primary suite has a private balcony and dual walk-in closets, as well as a marble-clad bath equipped with dual vanities, a large oval soaking tub and glass-encased shower. Two additional bedrooms and a bath also can be found on this floor, while the lower level hosts a plush screening room and an en-suite guest bedroom.
Surrounded by parkland, the landscaped grounds are showcased by a deck that crowns the lower-level piazza and serves as a bridge between the house and an upper terrace sporting a grassy lawn, an outdoor kitchen, and a free-form pool and spa. There’s also a poolside guesthouse with a kitchenette, bath and an outdoor shower.
