Jim Parsons’s LA Home Hits Market with $8.95m Asking Price

“The Big Bang Theory” star is just the most recent celeb to reside in the Los Feliz mansion.

Since its premiere in 2007, “The Big Bang Theory” has consistently been among the most-watched shows on television, making its stars some of the highest-paid. It’s little surprise, then, that the show’s top-billed actor, Jim Parsons, found himself one of the most luxurious homes in Los Angeles. Yet, Parsons is apparently ready to move on, having listed his Los Feliz mansion for sale with the modest asking price of $8.95 million.

Designed by architect Stiles O. Clements in the 1920s, the estate at 2666 Aberdeen Ave. was home to its fair share of Hollywood royalty even before Parsons moved in. Former owners include actors Robert Pattinson, Tim Curry and Noah Wylie, cinematographer Robert Richardson and director Robert Luketic. Pattinson bought the home in 2011 for $6.275 million before selling it to Parsons in three years later for $6.375.

Secluded by a stone wall surrounding the property, the three-bed, four-bath home was one of the first built in its neighborhood, which has since become one of the city’s most celebrity-dense communities. The home’s new owner may run into Jenji Kohan, Kirstie Alley, Gwen Stefani and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea, all of whom live in the hillside neighborhood.

The home’s original architectural details have been preserved, but its systems have been updated. Inside, the master suite features a balcony overlooking the Los Feliz hills, and the first-floor public rooms, which open to the rear outdoor living room, feature preserved original wood beams and hand-painted ceilings. An eat-in kitchen opens to its own outdoor dining patio, and an expansive library is painted in a lush navy blue. Outside, a hilltop lagoon-style pool sits near a waterfall that feeds a fountain and koi pond below, and a terra-cotta courtyard opens up to an amphitheater and cactus gardens.

Given the home’s high-profile history, it’s likely the next owner will be another Hollywood icon, but if you’ve got $9 million burning a hole in your pocket, Pacific Union International has the listing.

Note: at the time of this posting, the home may be off the market.
