In 2013, Ferguson, an Emmy-nominated actor, and his husband, Justin Mikita, purchased the Los Feliz residence for $4.55 million. Over the years, the couple added their personal touches to transform the 1920s style property into their own humble abode. In collaboration with designer Peter Gurski, the end product of their lavish home was grand enough to earn a feature in Architectural Digest. Before Ferguson and Mikita though, another renowned celebrity resided in and renovated the property. The extravagant pool and waterfall were installed by pop icon Gwen Stefani who purchased the home in 1998 before selling it in 2007.
As Ferguson is now planning to bid farewell to his former Los Feliz residence, the home is ready to be passed onto another Hollywood star. Last month Ferguson had listed the property for $6,995,000. However, the closing price for which DiCaprio purchased the home was slightly higher at $7.1 million. DiCaprio reportedly resides in the Bird Streets neighborhood but owns one home nearby that he purchased in 2018 for a family member. It appears that Ferguson’s former home may be intended for a similar purpose, but regardless, will be a grand addition to DiCaprio’s real estate portfolio.

The 5,000 square foot Los Feliz property spans half an acre of landscaped grounds. Resting above street level, the four-bedroom home opens to a two-story formal entry. The spacious living area features 25-foot ceilings and a stone fireplace. The eat-in chef’s kitchen presents a breakfast nook, built-in cabinets, and a wine fridge. The family room doubles as a media room with a projector and drop screen. The library is equipped with tall ceilings, stained-glass windows, and Juliet balconies. Heading upstairs, the master bedroom features a terrace and an ensuite bathroom with a separate tub and shower. Decorative elements of the home include designer wallpaper and a coffered ceiling. Other perks include an office, gym, meditation room, pool, observation deck, and a three-car garage.
