Christopher Meloni, back in the saddle as Det. Eliot Stabler in the upcoming ‘Law & Order: Special Victims Unit’ spinoff series, is planning a move. He listed his 1916-built traditional above Sunset for sale for $6.495 million.
The property in question happens to be a television star itself; it was featured in ‘The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet,’ a sitcom that ran from 1952 to 1966. Meloni has owned it since October of 2014. The house is an architectural landmark, with overhanging eves, and a shingled, hipped roof, and a design that hints at storybook; it extends to 5,283 square feet, with five bedrooms and seven baths.
There’s a great deal of red brick on the property. Together with the intense green of the lawns, tree-lined perimeter, and varied plantings, the warmth of all that brick gives the property exterior a romantic, even idyllic feel.
The home’s interiors have been renovated, but of course with a great deal of sensitivity. Multiple fireplaces and sets of French doors, crown moldings and a simple traditional staircase help retain the period charm of the home. Kitchen and baths are brought up to date, though, with the custom stone and tile that’s expected of a house of this caliber.
