Modern Family star and host of HGTV’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition Jesse Tyler Ferguson has just snagged a mansion in Encino, California. At 9,081 square feet with seven bedrooms and eight bathrooms, this new-build — situated in a suburban, family-friendly neighborhood of L.A. — is the ideal spot for Jesse and his husband, lawyer Justin Mikita, to lay down roots. Scroll down to take a tour of the divine digs, or as the listing perfectly describes it, an “architectural masterpiece!”
The three-level home is surrounded by more than a half acre of oak trees, beautiful greenery and gated walkways.
The home’s exterior features natural stone, cedar cladding and shou sugi ban, a Japanese burnt wood siding.
A stunning gated entryway invites guests into the property.
The foyer stuns with a wood floor and ceiling, while a graphic piece of art sets the tone in a cheeky way.
In the living room, an expansive seating area and built-in bar are perfect for entertaining.
A large, sink-in white sofa invites you to curl up and watch movies in the family room.
Across from the family room is an inviting open-concept kitchen and breakfast table.
The kitchen stuns with Calacatta porcelain countertops and custom white oak cabinetry.
The dining room is sectioned off from the living room by open shelving that lets the light pour in from the big windows. A temperature-controlled wine cellar can be found on the back wall.
Large windows open up the principal bedroom to the lush outdoors. Look at those scenic views!
Just off the principal bedroom is a 1,200-square-foot balcony that overlooks the beautiful property.
The principal bathroom is clad in floor-to-ceiling limestone and sleek Zellige tile.
A large walk-in closet is ideal for the fashion-forward couple.
The in-house movie theater comfortably seats 12 people.
Situated just outside the living room and bar is a charming seating area with a double-sided fireplace.
The deck features plenty of seating and a large dining table for al fresco meals under the large oak trees.
Just off the grass, a small patio area features a wood-burning fireplace and picnic table, ready for roasting marshmallows.
Further into the back of the property is a guest house set to host family and friends at any given moment.
The guest house bunkie features an upper loft, Murphy bed, kitchen, bathroom and a double-layer deck.
