Ryan Murphy, the Emmy-award winning producer and writer, has produced another hit. This time, it’s in the arena of real estate. The creator of “Glee” recently picked up a ranch house in Brentwood for $7.15 million, the website Dirt first reported.
Now, he has added yet another picturesque place to his property portfolio.
Designed by architect Cliff May in 1977, the California ranch house features four bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, and 4,000 square feet of living space.
Recently remodeled and modernized, while remaining true to the “intention” of May’s design, the one-story build “emanates grace,” the listing gushes. Wood-clad ceilings have been painted white, an overall color theme. The home features walls of glass and skylights, allowing light to pour in. Light wood flooring runs throughout.
In addition to the main house, a newly constructed guesthouse has been added to the square footage. It could serve as a gym, guest quarters, or an office.
The light-filled space features a living room with a fireplace and built-ins, as well as a formal dining room. A bright, white, state-of-the-art kitchen offers an island with seating, and opens to a family room.
Glass doors from the main area lead out to the pool and patio, perfect for indoor-outdoor living.
The layout also incorporates an office, wine room, and a main bedroom wing, with what is described as an “out of this world” closet. A separate wing contains three more bedroom suites.
The property is ideal for outdoor entertaining, with an exterior kitchen that features a built-in barbecue, pizza oven, and dining area. Seating is set up around a fire pit, pool, and spa.
The half-acre site also comes with three horse stalls, should Murphy have a hankering for a horse.
Real estate nip/tuck
In other real estate deals, Murphy sold his long-time Laguna Beach compound a year ago for $10.65 million. He picked up the place for $4,475,000 in 2005, and then bought an adjacent parcel in 2007 for just under $3 million.
After a major remodel, the spectacular beach house was featured in Architectural Digest. But despite the renovation, the spread didn’t net top dollar. The television mogul accepted an offer well below his initial asking price of $18.75 million in 2018.
Murphy has produced and created multiple series, including “Nip/Tuck,” “Glee,” “American Horror Story,” and “American Crime Story.” He has signed a deal with Netflix said to have been worth $300 million.
