About two years ago, actor David Arquette purchased this Encino traditional-modern hybrid home from Kate Walsh for $4.6 million. The “Cougar Town” producer is looking to move on from the property; he listed it this month for $5 million.
Set on more than an acre of lush land, the 1950s-built house spans 4,300 square feet, and contains four bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The exterior is tastefully dressed in grays, with a rambling layout and a varied roof line.
Interior spaces include a vaulted and beamed main living room with a central gold-paneled fireplace and an entire wall of windows looking out to the backyard. Around the corner, the dining room wows with a wall of retractable glass panels.
The statement-making space is the grand gourmet kitchen. With its deep blue custom cabinetry and white marble countertops, it is both refreshingly contemporary and comfortably classic. A gold metallic vent hood and a butcher-block center island contribute to a rather flashy take on European substantiality.
The lot is landscaped lush, with bits of lawn, an alfresco dining space, and a large swimming pool ensconced in a private green glade. A detached one-bedroom, one-bath guesthouse completes this property.
