Irish actor Jamie Dornan, best known for his lead role in the movie ‘Fifty Shades of Grey,’ has placed his classic California mid-century modern on the market for $3.195 million.
Nestled in the Hollywood Hills among large shade trees at the end of Nichols Canyon Road, the 2,510-square-foot, four-bedroom, four-bath, mid-century home was built in 1959 but underwent an extensive update prior to Dornan’s purchase. Capitalizing on the pleasant year-round climate, the center of the home has a large center atrium flooding the interior rooms with sunlight and the sound of trickling water wafting from a small waterfall and Zen-like water pond with large stepping stones. A peaceful retreat, yet large and dramatic for entertaining, it also opens to an outdoor terrace and deck with grass area, swimming pool, spa and firepit that is enclosed for privacy by a wall and towering foliage. Rooms are large with ceiling-to-floor glass walls opening either to the atrium or outdoor entertainment area. There is a double-sided fireplace between the living room and dining room and one kitchen wall is against the glass wall of the atrium making it feel as though one is cooking outside. The master suite has a walk-through closet and opens to the pool terrace.
Labeled “The Golden Torso” by ‘The New York Times,’ Dornan became a well known male model appearing in campaigns for Abercrombie & Fitch, Hugo Boss, Armani and Calvin Klein, quickly parlaying his runway skills into television commercials. It wasn’t until his part as Christian Grey in the ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ trilogy, that his box office popularity soared off the charts. The listing agent for Dornan’s home is Jeff Kohl of The Agency, Beverly Hills, California.
