Just weeks after he sold his showbiz-pedigreed home in the Hollywood Hills, tax records show “FBI” star Jeremy Sisto and his partner Addie Lane have plunked down $2.75 million for a casually sophisticated “modern farmhouse” style home clear across the country, in New York’s picturesque Westchester County hamlet of Waccabuc, about an hour’s drive northeast of Midtown Manhattan.
Built in 2018 and set on close to 3.25 private acres, the roughly 3,800-square-foot single-story contemporary retreat’s exterior design makes use of simple barn-like shapes that mimic the rustic 19th-century wood barn that anchors the property and provides historic gravitas. The exterior is clad in traditional wood siding that has been painted a chic and trendy shade of charcoal-grey, while the lofty interiors of the three-bedroom and 3.5-bath spread are bright, airy and open-plan with lightly lustrous honey-toned wood floors and cotton white walls. Massive black-framed windows showcase serenely meditative views of the dense and ever-changing forest that surrounds the property.
The unexpectedly extra-large entrance gallery has not just one but two identical fireplaces, each set into a simple column flanked by bespoke floating wood storage cubbies. One of the fireplaces is double-sided and shared with a living room wrapped in windows under a cathedral ceiling, while the eat-in kitchen and family room sports reclaimed wood accents paired with sleek, high-end appliances that include a costly imported European range. Both guest bedrooms are en suite — there’s an additional powder room for guests not spending the night — and the primary bedroom includes a spa-style bathroom with a deep soaking tub alongside a wall of windows.
The L-shaped house embraces a flat and grassy yard, and the barn makes for a beautifully bucolic view from the stone-paved patio next to the house. A manicured waist high hedgerow divides the main part of the yard from the unfussy rectangular swimming pool.
Muffin Dowdle at Ginnel Real Estate managed both sides of the deal.
Sisto, who now lives in the same general neck of the suburban woods as his character in the sitcom “Suburgatory,” which he headlined from 2011-2014, previously owned a 1940s traditional in a celeb-packed pocket of L.A.’s Hollywood Hills that he picked up in 2013 for $2.45 million from British indie film producer Cassian Elwes. He and Lane embarked on a full-scale renovation of the property but changed their minds and instead sold the gutted-to-the-studs house earlier this year for $2.57 million, notably above its not quite $2.4 million asking price.
