Last summer, Courtney Kemp inked a rich multiyear Netflix deal worth “in the high eight figures,” according to published reports. So it’s not particularly surprising that the former journalist-turned-prolific writer/producer (“Power” and its various Starz spinoffs, “The Good Wife,” “The Bernie Mac Show”), 44, would be looking to invest some of those big Netflix bucks in safe havens, and it appears one of those investments is an all-new mansion located in L.A.’s busy-busy Beverly Grove neighborhood — just south of West Hollywood.
Built new last year by a developer on speculation, the house is arguably one of the slickest residential projects ever completed in tightly-packed Beverly Grove. Despite the hefty price tag, there were multiple parties apparently interested in the estate; records show the deal closed at $5.7 million, or $205,000 over the ask. For that, Kemp received a large house and separate ADU with total living space of about 5,400 square feet.
Described in the listing as having “unmatched style” with “the finest level of craftsmanship,” the metal-roofed structure flaunts three full floors of living space, including a finished basement complete with a guest bedroom suite, wine cellar and lounge area.
It’s not yet clear what Kemp plans to do with her new Beverly Grove spot, but the place would make an ideal live/work situation for her End of Episode production company. In the meantime, the Connecticut native’s main residence remains a historic $8.7 million mansion in tony Hancock Park, and she also still owns a much smaller bungalow-style home in the same neighborhood.
