As one of the most prolific TV producers of all time, Greg Berlanti has had as many as 20 shows on the air at one point, across nearly half a dozen platforms — CW’s “The Flash,” and newer hits like HBO’s “The Flight Attendant” and “You” on Netflix, just to name a few. He also has a current production deal with Warner Bros. Television, running through 2024, that’s worth a reported $400 million.
Considering his hefty workload, it makes sense that Berlanti would want to escape the Tinseltown hustle and bustle from time to time. And so he’s acquired a tropical vacation home where he can do just that.
Property records reveal that Berlanti and his former LA Galaxy soccer star husband Robbie Rogers paid $8.1 million last year for an ocean-view villa at the 865-acre Four Seasons Resort Hualālai in Kailua-Kona, sited on the Kona-Kohala coast of Hawaii’s Big Island. The couple — who primarily reside in a swank Dutch-influenced compound high in mountains above Beverly Hills — will splash out a substantial HOA fee of $3,514 per month to enjoy the amenities there, including several pools, a championship Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course, spa, sports club and much more.
Originally built in 1998, the stucco and wood-shingled structure has since been fully renovated, complete with a newly built detached two-bedroom guest house. The residence features five en-suite bedrooms and 5.5 baths in just over 4,000 square feet of living space, including a bonus room ideal for use as an office. There are hand-scraped hardwood floors and soaring ceilings throughout, plus expansive walls of glass offering sweeping ocean and golf course views.
Among the highlights are a spacious living and dining room area, and an updated gourmet kitchen outfitted with granite countertops, high-end stainless appliances, a center island and breakfast nook. Outdoors, the picturesque grounds hold a lanai ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining with a built-in barbecue, along with a sparkling pool and spa. There’s also an attached two-car garage.
Berlanti, 49, began his career as a writer and executive producer for “Dawson’s Creek.” The New York native went on to make his feature directorial debut with “The Broken Hearts Club,” followed by “Love, Simon.” His company, Berlanti Productions, recently wrapped the Michael Grandage-directed “My Policeman,” starring Harry Styles and Emma Corrin, which is set for release this year on Amazon Prime.
Nicolaas Schenk and Frank Schenk of Hawaii Life Mauna Kea served as the listing agents; Berlanti was repped by Ku‘uipo Valenzuela of Hualālai Realty.
