Now that they’ve settled into “Big Bang Theory” star Johnny Galecki’s storied Hollywood compound, Matt Jackson and Maha Dakhil Jackson’s longtime residence in the Beachwood Canyon neighborhood of Los Angeles has unsurprisingly popped up for sale.
The married entertainment industry veterans — he a film and television producer best known for “All the Old Knives,” “Molly’s Game” and “End of Watch,” and she a top talent agent who reps the likes of Tom Cruise, Ava DuVernay, Mindy Kaling, Anne Hathaway, Natalie Portman and Madonna — are asking just under $5 million for the Spanish-style estate, or around $1.6 million more than they paid for the place almost nine years ago, back in summer 2014.
Built way back in the late 1920s — and previously restored by the owners of the L.A. design store GARDE, but later outfitted for the current owners by interior designer Mandy Graham — the meticulously maintained residence features four bedrooms and an equal number of baths spread across 3,650 square feet of living space boasting wide-plank white oak floors, high wood-beam ceilings, custom tile work and hand-forged Belgian hardware, plus stellar views of Downtown L.A., the Griffith Observatory, iconic Hollywood sign and ocean beyond.
Nestled behind gates and hedge-covered walls, on a quarter-acre-plus parcel of land, the two-story white stucco and terracotta-roof structure is accented by a turreted entryway topped with a slender wrought iron-encased window. A driveway tucked off to the side travels to an attached two-car garage, with a brick walkway passing through a manicured lawn before emptying out at the olive green-hued front door.
Once inside, a double-height foyer displaying a winding mosaic-tiled staircase steps down to a soaring fireside living room flaunting a wall of arched French doors spilling outside. Other main-level highlights include a sunroom warmed by a fireplace and formal dining room spotlighted by a sculptural light fixture, along with a gourmet kitchen outfitted with an eat-in island, La Cornue range and circular breakfast nook with built-in banquette seating.
Upstairs, three en-suite bedrooms include a master retreat outfitted with a private balcony and walk-in closet, as well as a restored vintage bath; and though there’s no swimming pool to be found outdoors, the flat and grassy backyard does host an expansive covered terrace ideal for al fresco lounging and entertaining amid those breathtaking vistas.
