'True Blood' showrunner Brian Buckner puts his Encino home up for sale

Television writer and producer Brian Buckner has put his home with some celebrity history on the market in Encino for $3.2 million.

Ownership records read like a who’s who of Hollywood types: Buckner bought the house two years ago from “Reign” executive producer Laurie McCarthy. McCarthy, in turn, acquired the home in 2006 from actors and celebrity home-flippers Amanda Pays and Corbin Bernsen.

Built in 1941 and since remodeled, the Traditional-style home sits at the end of a long gated drive.

The four-bedroom, four-bathroom home features light wood floors, built-in bookshelves and an open-plan kitchen and family room. Colorful wallpaper and artistic tile lend a splash of color to the 3,801 square feet of white-walled space.

In the master suite, a rolling farmhouse-style barn door separates the bedroom and a private sitting area. Another bedroom suite doubles as an office.

French doors open to an outdoor dining area complete with a grill, brick pizza oven and a fireplace.

A bocce ball court, a swimming pool and a two-story guest house are also within grounds of close to an acre.
