Perhaps you’re a Stockard Channing fan from her unforgettable performance as Rizzo in “Grease.” Or perhaps you followed her when she was on “The West Wing” or “The Good Wife.” Now you can applaud her standout home in Los Angeles, which is on the market for $2,495,000.
An award-winning star on stage and screen, Channing also has an eye for real estate. She picked up this secluded sanctuary decades ago for $870,000.
Built in 1956 and surrounded by verdant landscaping, the single-level home measures 2,157 square feet and has three beds and 3.5 baths.
“The standout features are the privacy and the magical setting,” says listing agent Juliette Hohnen with Douglas Elliman. “It is gated, and the house is way back from the street, quiet, and private. Once you are inside the gate, the lush landscaping and the expansive canyon views give you a sense of peacefulness. It’s truly extraordinary.”
The home’s living, dining, and kitchen spaces all open out to the backyard and pool area, and they showcase views of the surrounding canyon. The airy and bright layout features vaulted wood ceilings, dark wood floors, and indoor-outdoor flow.
While the home’s been updated, it’s also maintained some charming details, including the beamed ceilings and stained glass. The updated kitchen contains stainless-steel appliances, a butcher block counter, and a tiled backsplash. Both the dining and living areas feature fireplaces.
All three bedrooms are en suite, and the master suite comes with a walk-in closet.
The home’s quarter-acre lot is highlighted by a pool, spa, and patio with space for dining and lounging.
The home is located in a section of L.A. dubbed “Celebrity Row,” which reportedly has counted A-list neighbors such as Will Farrell, Zac Efron, and Lady Gaga.
Channing has garnered acclaim for her roles in “Six Degrees of Separation,” “The West Wing,” and “The Matthew Shepard Story.”
Juliette Hohnen and Annie Stewart of Douglas Elliman hold the listing.
