Published reports say that “The Walking Dead” star, Norman Reedus, and his partner, Diane Kruger, just bought a house from Undead labs zombie game developer Jeff Strain for $8.5 million. The pair of former fashion models have reportedly bought the 7,732-square-foot circa-1926 home in an all-cash deal.
According to the listing, which had been held by Farrah Brittany and Mauricio Umansky of The Agency, the three-story “Old Hollywood castle exterior” home was sold entirely move-in ready. In addition to the requisite pool, spa, multiple fireplaces, alarm system, etc. the totally-turnkey-2.0 property, also came with not just its own fruit and vegetable garden but dedicated a garden specialist, meditation room, and full complement of cookware, bathroom essentials and even booze.
The four-bedroom, five-and-two-half-bath home, which is tucked away on almost half an acre in the Hollywood Hills, also features expansive views from downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Ocean and a gated motor court. Other amenities at the “gracefully restored … art gallery-modern interior” home include a basketball court with sound-dampening floor, outdoor kitchen with pizza oven, Vantage lighting system, Schotten and Hansen wood floors and Commune tile and tons “minimalist luxury features.”
Also from the listing: “The estate … has a full array of eclectic modern furniture, as well as a stunning, large-scale photography collection, a library of thousands of new books personally curated by the home’s owner, all-new eco mattresses and luxury bedding, a fully stocked dream kitchen (right down to the Italian espresso maker), eight huge televisions, a full Sonos system and most importantly, a turntable with a selection of jazz and blues albums. AND: “If you’re into clean eating, wellness and new media—like streaming and podcasting—the property has extra cool goodies just for you.
