‘The Shield’ Actor Walton Goggins Lists His Quaint 1920s Home for Sale

Walton Goggins is selling his Los Angeles home, a lovely 5-bedroom home tucked behind dense landscaping just above Hollywood Boulevard. The actor, known for his prominent roles in The Shield, Sons of Anarchy, Justified or Django Unchained and now the star of CBS’s heartwarming sitcom The Unicorn, bought the home back in 2010, when he was getting ready to welcome his son Augustus, now 10.

The two-story brick home has both French and Spanish touches as well as beautiful, eclectic interiors that combine vintage décor and boho chic influences with modern elements. The results are so spectacular that the home caught the eye of over 20 publications, with Architectural Digest, Maison Du Monde or GQ all featuring it in the past. Now, Goggins is looking to sell the charming home for $3.35 million and has enlisted the help of Josh Myler of The Agency to find a buyer.

Stylish vintage interiors pay tribute to the roaring 20s

Originally designed and built by Harold O. Sexsmith in 1927, Goggins’ home retains many of its original features. From the original coffered front door to the hardwood floors, or the arched openings to the casement windows, every detail has been meticulously restored, maintaining the original charm, warmth, and essence of the 1920s.

The foyer that welcomes visitors is accentuated by original period tile floors. To the left, there’s a stylish and sophisticated formal living room, whose surrounding windows and overall scale allow light in from every side. The most striking elements in this room are an oversized, original stone wood-burning fireplace and floor-to-ceiling bookshelves that line one of the walls.

The living room opens to indoor/outdoor dualling lounges, which are connected by French doors and offer privacy for more intimate gatherings. In fact, the whole house is filled with comfy gathering places, both indoors and out.

 â€œMy philosophy is a person shouldn’t have to take more than six or eight steps without having an opportunity to sit down for a conversation to begin,” the actor once told a GQ reporter that toured his home.

A wonderfully elegant kitchen

The main floor is completed by a fully equipped eat-in chef’s kitchen with wood and marble open shelving, punctuated by elegant brass fixtures that complement the rich, dark wood cabinets. The actor’s kitchen features a lovely dining area that, just like the living room, is surrounded by top-to-bottom bookshelves that complete the inviting, bohemian look. Next to the kitchen, there’s also a large pantry with accompanying laundry facilities.

The bedrooms are bright and inviting

On the main level, there’s also a guest bedroom with a full en-suite bathroom. But the bulk of the sleeping quarters are on the second level, where there’s a primary suite (boasting a chic bathroom and large walk-in closet) and two additional guest bedrooms and a bathroom.

Stepping outside to a whimsical backyard

In line with the overall romantic feel of the European-inspired home, the outdoor area is whimsical and inviting, with a large swimming pool that is framed by citrus fruit trees and string lights. Since the actor finds gathering spaces to be of utmost importance, the quiet, private backyard features two outdoor dining areas, and extra seating set around a fire pit.

This $3.5M Apartment Was Once Owned by Filmmaker Nancy Dine, Muse of Famed Artist Jim Dine

Perched high over Lincoln Center, overlooking the Hudson River, sits a sophisticated modern apartment with a backstory steeped in local art history. It was home to late Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Nancy Dine who, alongside husband Jim Dine, dominated the local arts scene of the early ’60s and were considered the ultimate art-star power couple at the time. 

During her 40-year marriage to Jim Dine — a prolific, multi-talented contemporary artist — Nancy is said to have re-defined the role of the “artist’s wife”. She appeared in many of his paintings and was all at once his inspiration, assistant, and publicist. She took up filmmaking in her 50s, producing a number of short films, including a documentary on her husband’s life, entitled Jim Dine: A Self-Portrait on the Walls (which was nominated for an Academy Award in 1996).

Her son, Nick Dine, inherited his parents’ artistic inclination and turned it into a prolific career as an interior designer. In fact, he was the one to design Nancy’s bright and spacious Upper West Side apartment, which recently came to market.

The apartment, listed for $3,495,000 with Brown Harris Stevens’ Susan Silverman and James Foreman, spans 1,675 square feet and is flooded with light thanks to its five oversized west-facing windows. It has 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, and a 680-square-foot living and dining area, which easily seats 12.

The living area connects to the Bulthaup kitchen, which has a large stainless steel top island, Gaggenau steam and convection ovens, 5 burner cook top, Sub Zero refrigerator with extra freezer and refrigerator drawers plus endless concealed storage.

The spacious bedroom suite includes a separate dressing area outfitted with a complete Vitsoe modular storage system with cedar lined walls, plus a large bath. There is a full guest bathroom off the living room as well as a separate home office area bordered by Vitsoe bookcases. The apartment’s layout can accommodate a second bedroom or den.

It is a coveted full service condominium with many amenities including doorman and concierge, covered driveway, attached parking garage with valet service, a dramatic glass enclosed roof fitness room and pool with retractable glass roof, sauna steam, and outdoor sundeck. The building has a newly renovated and landscaped outdoor space, with fire pits on the 8th floor.
