Check Out The Haunted LA Home Chris Meloni Just Sold For $5.9 Million

Christopher Meloni, best known for his role in NBC's long-running show, "Law & Order: SVU," sold his LA home of nearly 10 years. The home, albeit haunted, sold for $5.9 million in an off-market deal to director Rawson Marshall Thurber, as per Cinema Blend. Thurber is known for directing the popular comedy movies "Dodgeball," "We're the Millers," and the new Netflix original action movie "Red Notice." Meloni and his wife, Doris Sherman Williams, bought the Hollywood Hills mansion back in 2014 for $5.25 million.

The house, with a considerable amount of history, has been home to several high-profile celebrities, including Ozzie and Harriet Nelson of "The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet," who owned the residence in the 1950s, according to New York Post. Allegedly, Ozzie Nelson began haunting the home after dying at the estate due to liver cancer. When the house sold after his death, the ownership changed hands multiple times, with reports of doors opening by themselves and model trains running on their own. The haunting apparently continued until 2013, when the property was extensively remodeled; afterward, Ozzie's spirit ceased to make any appearances.

Plenty of room to enjoy the LA sun

Built back in the early 1900s, the exterior of the home has stayed relatively unchanged, as told by Dirt. Its white siding keeps the home looking quaint despite its size. Much of the outdoor landscape includes brick which leads from the home's outdoor dining area all the way to the in-ground pool at the edge of the yard. The pool is perfectly surrounded by large trees and bushes for plenty of privacy. It also features comfortable lounge chairs and a small studio pool house/guest house that includes one bathroom, as shown on Zillow.

Another beautiful outdoor seating option is just off the side of the home. Four large wicker chairs are positioned around a small table. It's the best place for an evening with a glass of wine or a Sunday morning with a mug of coffee. The ground below includes expertly placed cement stones, only interrupted by little pebbles in between. It functions as a great private area from the rest of the yard when you need some fresh air.

Lots of family space

Meloni's previous home boasts more than 5,000 square feet of space, as per Architectural Digest. The main floor has definitely been built for entertaining. It features a family room, dining room, living room, kitchen, breakfast area, and one bedroom. The open concept kitchen steals the show on this floor. It has been recently renovated to include marble countertops and top-of-the-line appliances, including a wide refrigerator and a large gas range. In the center of the kitchen sits a massive eat-in island, necessary for quick breakfasts while also giving cooks plenty of counter space to prepare large meals.

Another great aspect of the main floor is the neighboring living room and family room. Both areas have gorgeous modern fireplaces and large comfortable couches. The ceiling of the family room is graced by decorative tracery that adds to the list of unique qualities this home has. The same room also has two sets of glass doors that lead out to the private outdoor sitting area. As seen on Zillow, the living room is slightly larger than the family room and made into a sitting area. There are three couches that face each other to create a great space for chatting with friends and relatives.

A luxurious primary suite

This five-bedroom, six-bathroom home uses most of its living space on the second floor, where the remaining four bedrooms, four bathrooms, and one sitting room are situated. The three average-sized rooms have their own closets and full bathrooms, making them great options as temporary guest rooms or bedrooms for older children. The primary bedroom is where all the fun is.

The massive primary bedroom has its own fireplace, two walk-in closets, a giant primary bathroom with his and hers vanities, a soaking tub, a walk-in shower, and extra tall ceilings, as detailed by Dirt. The main suite takes up nearly a third of the entire second floor. Hidden somewhere between the many rooms up here is a small sitting area for watching television, hanging out with your partner, or taking a short nap. It features a large bookshelf seemingly filled with books and movies. Cut into the shelving is a hole where a flat-screen television is arranged.
