Here's How Much Shonda Rhimes Sold Her L.A. Home For

"Grey's Anatomy" and "Scandal" creator Shonda Rhimes recently sold her Los Angeles mansion for $21 million, according to People. Rhimes purchased the house in 2014 from Patricia Heaton for just $8.8 million. Interestingly, she wrote in Architectural Digest that her first impression of the house was that it was "ugly and wrong" and "an illogical pairing of design styles." From there, she hired architect Bill Baldwin, who found out the house was built in 1923 by Elmer Grey, and that the owners in the 1950s removed many of the original features. The duo found pictures of the original house and had a stonemason recreate the original plan as closely as possible.

The interior was completed by White House interior designer Michael S. Smith. Rhimes writes that she was impressed by the White House design during Barack Obama's presidency, and brought on Smith to tackle her five year renovation. "The home we've created feels classic California — if a little bit romantic," wrote Rhimes.

Shonda Rhimes' Hancock Park mansion

Shonda Rimes' former mansion is located in Hancock Park, and People notes that her residence broke the record for the most expensive house sold in the neighborhood — the previous high being $19 million. The house is almost 12,000 square feet, and sits on 1.14 acres. The three story mansion has seven bedrooms and 12 bathrooms, as well as a finished guest house, a swimming pool, hot tub, cabana, outdoor kitchen, expansive garden (as well as a private hedge garden), full service salon, and wellness center.

Additionally, the main floor of Rimes' former residence has multiple living rooms and lounging areas, a library, and a chef's kitchen. The master bedroom is found on the second floor, taking up the entire southern wing of the home, and is equipped with a walk-in dressing room and sitting area. A total of six bedrooms are found on the second story, too. Finally, the basement is largely for entertainment, and contains a playroom for children, a stadium seating theater room, and a fully stocked snack bar.
