Actor Chris Meloni and his wife, Sherman Williams, have leased a gated compound in Beverly Hills.
The Spanish-style house, built in 1929, belongs to dancer-actor-choreographer Grover Dale and had been listed at $25,000 a month for a one-year-plus term.
The 6,000-square-foot home features a courtyard entry, four fireplaces, a card room, a den, an office, four bedrooms and six bathrooms. There is a guesthouse and a swimming pool.
Meloni, 52, is in "42" and "Man of Steel." Often associated with his cop roles on "NYPD Blue" and "Law & Order," he will star in the upcoming TV comedy "I Suck at Girls" and played a vampire last year on the series "True Blood."
Dale, 77, appeared in the musicals "Li'l Abner" and "West Side Story" and the films "The Unsinkable Molly Brown" and "The Landlord." He choreographed the musical "Billy" and shared a Tony Award as co-director of "Jerome Robbin's Broadway."
Brent Watson of Coldwell Banker's Beverly Hills North office was the listing agent. Dana Cataldi of Partners Trust in Brentwood represented the Meloni and Williams.
