With an impressive real estate portfolio, Shonda Rhimes has acquired multiple properties over the years. The Shondaland producer has purchased a duplex in Hancock Park for $1.66 million, an English style manor for $4.6 million, and a posh penthouse in Manhattan’s Upper East Side for $11.75 million. In 2014, Rhimes purchased another grand mansion in Hancock Park for $8.8 million. While Rhimes initially referred to the Santa Barbara Mission style architecture as “ugly,” the home has undergone substantial renovation with the help of architect and builder Bill Baldwin. The original 1923 design by Elmer Grey has since been restored to its former state as an Italianate villa with stone carvings and luxurious interiors executed by the White House designer Michael Smith.

Located in the Hancock Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, Rhime’s renovated estate spans 11,749 square feet and includes seven bedrooms and 12 bathrooms. The property consists of multiple structures but centers upon the three-level primary residence. Entering the foyer, the extravagant home highlights marble flooring and a dazzling chandelier. Further into the property presents a spacious living room with an intricate tray ceiling and formal dining room. The eat in chef’s kitchen is equipped with state-of-the-art appliances, butler’s pantry, and additional catering kitchen. The interior space also includes a cozy family room, library filled with a remarkable book collection, two-story salon, music mezzanine, and gym.

Upstairs, the primary suite features a walk-in dressing room and opal white stone bath. The upper level also offers six ensuite bedrooms. On the lower level, the home presents a theater room, snack bar, playroom, and additional storage. The separate guesthouse features its own bath and hair salon. Stepping outside, the enormous exterior space highlights a patio, swimming pool, cabana, motor court, and charming “secret garden” with fountain.

The listing for this property is held by Ed Solorzano with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California.
