Prolific film producer/writer Jordan Peele already owns a midcentury ranch-style home in a very good pocket of Los Feliz, but the New York-born comic-turned-horror maestro (“Get Out,” “Us,” “Candyman”) apparently likes the area so much that he’s picked up another property. Records show Peele and his equally funny actress wife Chelsea Peretti (“Brooklyn Nine-Nine”) have shelled out just over $2.7 million for a slightly smaller three-bedroom, 2.5-bath nearby home, significantly over the $2 million asking price.
Nestled on a compact 0.16-acre hillside parcel — just blocks from Griffith Park, the Greek Theatre and Los Feliz Village — Peele’s newly acquired Neo-Colonial-style digs were originally built way back in 1938. Since extensively remodeled, per the listing, the updated multilevel residence now features over 2,100 square feet of light-filled living space highlighted throughout by hardwood floors, period tile, and walls of glass offering up explosive ocean and city lights views.
Previous listing photos show a main level containing a step-down living room spotlighted by a fireplace and doors that open to a small view deck. There’s also a formal dining room with access to a flagstone patio down below that’s ideal for al fresco dining and entertaining, plus a den sporting a wall of built-ins, and a kitchen outfitted with rolled linoleum floors, quartz countertops and stainless appliances.
Upstairs, a trio of bedrooms include a primary suite featuring a spacious walk-in closet and access to a covered balcony; and a 350-square-foot bonus space on the lower level with its own entrance comes equipped with a custom bar, banquette and entertaining space. Rounding it all out: a two-car garage with plenty of storage space.
Peele, 42, kicked off his career in 2003 as a cast member on the FOX sketch-comedy series “MadTV.” He went on to star for several years with Keegan-Michael Key on the Emmy-winning show “Key & Peele.” Since then, he’s changed course and started focusing on writing, directing and producing horror flicks, including the Oscar-winning “Get Out,” HBO’s “Lovecraft Country” and the recent “Candyman” reimagining. He’s currently working on the film “Nope,” set for release in summer 2022. As for Peretti, she’s written several episodes of the TV show “Parks and Recreation,” and played the role of Gina Linetti in the Golden Globe-winning police comedy sitcom “Brooklyn Nine-Nine.”
