This Art Deco-style Hollywood Hills home owned by Emmy-nominated actor Walton Goggins — best known for his roles in “The Shield,” “Justified,” “Sons of Anarchy” and “Django Unchained” — is now on the market for only the fifth time in 94 years for $3.35 million.
Designed by architect Harold O. Sexsmith in 1927, the rare property — somewhat of a “unicorn,” if you will — has since been meticulously restored in keeping with the designer’s original aesthetic. Inside, the interiors are replete with the original tile and hardwood flooring, a coffered front door, casement windows, arched doorways, and an impressive wood-burning stone fireplace gracing a stylish living room that opens via French doors to a professionally landscaped backyard sporting a duo of al fresco dining areas, firepit lounge, mature gardens and a pool encircled by fruit trees.
Found on a particularly lovely and leafy stretch of Franklin Avenue that sits right at the base of L.A.’s popular Runyon Canyon Park neighborhood, the gated brick dwelling offers 3,000-plus square feet of light-filled interiors on two levels. Expect a grand foyer that leads to a main living area earmarked by a gourmet eat-in kitchen with high-end appliances, large butler’s pantry/laundry room and guest bedroom with full ensuite bathroom. A striking wooden staircase passes to the upstairs, where a master’s retreat hosts a sizable walk-in closet and chic bathroom, and other spaces include a pair of guest bedrooms that share a bathroom, an office and Juliet balcony overlooking the front garden. A basement and two-car garage complete this one-of-a-kind offering, which last sold for $1.5 million in 2010, according to public records.
If you like the look of this place and you have nearly $3.4 million burning a hole in your pocket, act quickly. According to the MLS, Goggins’ chic Hollywood house is already in escrow and seeking backup offers.
