Actor Michael Chiklis is selling his Cape Cod-style mansion in Los Angeles for $5.195 million.
Mr. Chiklis, 54, and his wife, actress Michelle Chiklis, bought the home in 1996 following his six-year run starring in the quirky police comedy-drama “The Commish.” They paid $1.1 million for the 5,773-square-foot house in the city’s Sherman Oaks neighborhood, according to property records.
The actor and producer is best known for playing detective Vic Mackey on “The Shield,” and more recently Nathaniel Barnes on “Gotham.” The Los Angeles Times first reported the listing.
The 0.6-acre estate encompasses a midcentury mansion with a steep gabled roof reminiscent of Cape Cod architecture common to the New England coast. Three broad, single-story wings comprise the house, which wraps like a U around a brick-paved courtyard surrounded by French doors, according to the listing with Peter Maurice, estates director at Rodeo Realty.
“The house has superb privacy,” Mr. Maurice said, adding that the owners lavished resources into creating an “authentic Hamptons-style home.”
The home has five bedrooms and five bathrooms plus a two-story guest house.
Los Angeles-based interior designer Windsor Smith—whose list of celebrity clientele include Gwyneth Paltrow—rebuilt the inside of the home. Images show the designer’s signature white-and-neutral palette.
The interior also features wide-plank Vermont oak floors, vaulted ceilings and custom built-ins, according to the listing.
A publicist for Mr. Chiklis did not return request for comment.
Amenities include a screening room, a secluded fire pit, billiards room, pool, hot tub and half basketball court. An appliance-packed kitchen includes double ovens, double sinks built into a marble-topped island, warming drawers and double-wide glass-front refrigerator.
