Actor Tony Shalhoub’s longtime Los Angeles home has landed in the hands of another industry insider— “New Girl” creator Elizabeth Meriwether.
Ms. Meriwether, 36, who developed and produced the hit sitcom starring Zooey Deschanel, bought the Mediterranean-style home last month through a trust for $4.125 million, according to property records accessed through PropertyShark.
Mr. Shalhoub, 64, who played the detective in “Monk,” owned the home for over two decades with his wife, Brooke Adams. The actor sold the house last year for $3.6 million to John Agwunobi, according to property records. Mr. Agwunobi is a former U.S. Department of Health and Human Services official under President George W. Bush and now works as an executive for Herbalife.
Ms. Meriwether’s new home consists of a four-bedroom main house plus a separate two-car garage with an upstairs guest/artist studio, according to the former listing with Lisa Hutchins of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage.
The master suite was recently updated with a new marble-and-tile master bath in addition to built-in bookshelves, walk-in closets and a private balcony, the listing says.
The first floor is made up of large entertaining spaces featuring stately details like a columned fireplace, crown moulding and stained wainscoting, images of the home show.
The large family room looks out over an amenity-packed backyard, including a walled garden, a pool and cabana, hot tub, and barbecue.
Instead of the celebrity-riddled neighborhoods of Hollywood and Beverly Hills, the screenplay writer’s new home is located in Hancock Park, a more central but very affluent area of Los Angeles.
Ms. Meriwether did not immediately return request for comment.
Architectural Digest first reported the sale.
