Actor Shemar Moore has put his sunny Mediterranean-style residence in Encino, CA, on the market for $2,596,000.
The “S.W.A.T.” star recently purchased an even swankier and bigger mansion in Sherman Oaks for $5.8 million.
Moore purchased his five-bedroom Encino digs in 2007 for $2.5 million. Built in 1963, the two-story home has been meticulously remodeled and expanded to accommodate a large family and allow space for entertaining.
The tile-roofed, 3,634-square-foot home hews close to the Mediterranean aesthetic and features wrought-iron balconies and railings, arched windows and doorways, sturdy plaster walls, elegant wood floors, and colorful Spanish tile finishes.
Sitting majestically above street level, the home features a custom waterfall and private courtyard out front.
The master suite features a wood-beamed, 12-foot ceiling, a fireplace, a spacious walk-in closet, and a bathroom with plenty of natural light and a spa tub. It also comes with two balconies, and an adjacent room could be used as an office or gym.
The chef’s kitchen features marble countertops, a center island and bar, and Thermador appliances, including a six-burner stove. The space is flanked by the formal dining room and the living/family room.
However, the heart of the home is the light-filled family/game room, with it cathedral ceiling and French doors, which open to a luxe yard out back.
The backyard truly makes the home feel like a secluded villa in the middle of the Santa Monica mountains.
Tall palm trees shade lush lawns, and there’s an inviting pool with a raised spa and Baja shelf. There’s also a fire pit, conversation areas, and a free-standing sauna. The 12,591-square-foot lot is quite large for the neighborhood.
Just north of Mulholland Drive and west of Interstate Highway 405, the home is located near restaurants and shops on Ventura Boulevard, as well as L.A.’s posh Westside and all the excellent schools in the area.
Moore, 49, rose to fame on “The Young and the Restless.” After starring on the soap opera for over a decade, he transitioned to the CBS crime series “Criminal Minds,” where he had another decadelong stint before becoming the lead on the “S.W.A.T.” reboot.
