Megan Mullally, best known for her role as Karen on Will and Grace, and her husband, Nick Offerman, who plays Ron Swanson on Parks and Recreation, just sold their modern home located at 1435 Tanager Way for $9.97 million. The final sale on May 23 was $2.68 million less than what they were asking; the couple first listed it in September 2012 for $12.65 million, but pulled it off the market in November. Even at that price, the couple will make money from the deal; they purchased the home in 2003 for only $3.95 million under Megan’s “Chinese Laundry” trust (under which Peter Millsap is a trustee).
In December 2011 the couple bought a second home at 1775 Stone Canyon Road in Bel Air for $4.15 million. They purchased it under “Old Crenshaw Returns Trust,” which also lists Peter Millsap as a trustee. That may be where the two are residing now that their home on Tanager way has sold.
The couple must be fans of modern architecture and amazing views. Their home at Tanager Way in Los Angeles was on one the “bird streets” overlooking the L.A. skyline, and had a modern, beautiful interior designed by Ames Ingham (and featured in Elle Décor). It is completely walled and is located on a quiet cul-de-sac, offering plenty of privacy. The listing agent, Rory Barish of Keller Williams Beverly Hills, notes that it is on “one of the best, if not THE BEST, Bird Street.” The bird streets are popular among celebs; other stars in the neighborhood include Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, Jodie Foster, Matthew Perry, and Jennifer Aniston.
Their Stone Canyon abode has the same modern, white architecture. It spans more than 5,100 square feet and has four bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The listing agent, Michelle Nelson of Sotheby’s International Realty, describes it as “ideal for lavish parties or total privacy.” The home is currently decorated in modern, monochrome furniture, but our guess is that Megan and Nick will furnish it with a bit more color and pizzazz. The home overlooks Stone Canyon, so while there’s still an incredible view, it’s more of the nature variety.
Can you believe these are the homes of “Ron Swanson?”
