Rachael Harris — the veteran TV and film actress/comedian probably best known for her role as therapist Linda Martin on “Lucifer” — has doled out $2.5 million for an expanded and remodeled ranch-style house in Brentwood’s affluent Upper Mandeville Canyon neighborhood.
Originally listed for $151,000 less, her newly acquired property was built in the 1950s, and features three bedrooms and three baths in just over 2,100 square feet of sun-drenched living space adorned throughout with hardwood floors, wood-beam ceilings and skylights. Those stylish environs and a prime locale on a quarter-acre-plus lot sparked a bidding war, with the place only lasting on the market for a short 15 days.
Tucked away behind walls and gates, and fronted by an attached two-car garage, the stucco and wood-accented structure’s double front door opens into a spacious living room boasting a marble-clad fireplace. Sliding glass doors in that space and a sunroom spill out to an al fresco dining and entertaining patio; and a dining area connects to a gallery-style kitchen with newer appliances, raised ceramic countertops and a breakfast nook.
All three bedrooms are sequestered in a separate wing of the house, and include a pair of guest bedrooms that share a Jack-and-Jill bath, along with a high-ceilinged master suite containing a corner fireplace, walk-in closet and spa-like bath equipped with a large glass-encased shower.
Elsewhere is a bonus room that’s currently being used as an office, but could easily double as a studio or gym. Outdoors, the landscaped grounds are laced with colorful flowers and fruit trees, and host a freeform black-bottom pool surrounded by a flagstone patio and meandering pathways leading to various lounge areas.
An Ohio native, the 54-year-old actress made her TV debut in a 1993 episode of the science-fiction series “SeaQuest DSV” and went on to snag a recurring role as Simone in the sixth season of “Sister, Sister.” Harris has also appeared in “The Hangover,” “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” “Reno 911!,” “New Girl,” “Suits” and “The Good Wife.”
