That was fast. Stage and television actor Matthew Morrison has seemingly landed a buyer for La Reve (“The Dream”), his secluded Hollywood Hills home that came for sale last month at almost $4.3 million. Online listings indicate the property is under active contract.
The SAG award winning performer is all set to more than triple his money on the slightly more than one-acre property he purchased for about $1.2 million back in 2010, just as his 120-plus-episode stint on “Glee” made him a household name. Since then Morrison, and wife Renee Puente, completed a $1 million renovation, adding an additional 1000 sq ft. Built in the early 1940s, the Monterey Colonial farmhouse now measures in at 3,146 sq ft, with three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms and modern amenities. Set upon a sunny knoll, and invisible from the street at the end of a long, gated and foliage enshrouded driveway, the home is exclusively represented by Heather Boyd at Hilton & Hyland.
Highlights include a step-down living room with rough-cut stone corner fireplace, and a chef’s kitchen complete with built-in steamer in the doublewide island. French doors open the main floor to stone-paved loggias and terraces that are perfectly furnished to whittle away days (and evenings) staring across the relaxed grounds, organic fruit trees and far into the wooded hillside.
The primary suite features a stone fireplace, sunny deck, walk-in closet, modern bathroom and dark-stained wood beams across a vaulted ceiling. Other notable creature comforts include a built-in barbecue, in-ground infinity spa and smart home technology that controls both security and sound systems.
The Morrisons previously owned an apartment in New York that was sold in 2019 for $2.1 million, and an upstate New York retreat that went in 2020 for $775,000. The family plans to travel for a while, with stops in Nashville and Italy, the actor told WSJ, before they eventually settle down and buy a house on the East Coast.
