Ben McKenzie @Gotham lists his charming Spanish-style house in Hollywood Hills

Actor Ben McKenzie, who stars on “Gotham,” listed his Hollywood Hills house for sale at $1.895 million and in less than a week it was in escrow.

And why not? The 1950s charmer is updated, designer decorated and in the popular Nichols Canyon area.

The Spanish-style house has been adapted for indoor-outdoor living and entertaining with a detached guest suite that can serve as a bedroom, office or gym. The 2,081 square feet of living space, with such details as hardwood floors and interior archways, includes living room and den fireplaces, three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms.

The nearly third-acre grounds contain a swimming pool, an outdoor kitchen with a barbecue, two patios, mature trees and lawn.

McKenzie, 36, has starred on “Gotham” since the Batman-prequel series started last year. The crime drama, filmed in New York City, has been renewed for another year. He was on “Southland” (2009-13) and “The O.C.” (2003-07).

The property last changed hands in 2005 for $1.429 million.

Kimberly Green of Keller Williams is the listing agent.
