Actress Emmy Rossum and her husband, producer and writer Sam Esmail, are the new owners of a very young and very large traditional in Los Angeles. The duo closed on the home recently for $15.3 million, according to Dirt.
The property occupies nearly half an acre of land in Brentwood, a goodly slice of a high-dollar neighborhood that gives it a primary amenity: a sprawling tongue of tree-bordered lawn in back, and a relatively uninterrupted one, as the pool is discreetly confined to the sidelines.
The seven-bedroom home’s shared living spaces are tastefully rendered in pale beige and creamy blue tones, panoramic wall covering, dark-toned ceiling beams, and antiqued rustic plank floors that could either be barn-reclaimed or finished to look the part. The kitchen and family room comes off well, incorporating a fireplace, fold-away glass walls that open to a transition room, and a full-sized bar — one of two in the home.
And the second bar, and the room it serves, deserves special note; something of a combination lounge and library, it boasts recessed build-in bookshelves, a billiards table, and a media space. Other amenities featured across this house’s 12,584 sq. ft.: a formal dining room (the recipient of the panoramic wall covering, of course), an office with walls, shelves and ceiling in a rather intense shade of green, a gym, and a home theater.
Rossum’s upcoming projects include mini-series Angelyne. She’s also set to star in Apple TV+ series The Crowded Room, with Tom Holland and Amanda Seyfried.
Esmail’s upcoming projects include Starz political thriller Gaslit, with Julia Roberts and Sean Penn.
