Samuel L. Jackson haunt for sale in Encino

Samuel L. Jackson's onetime Encino compound is for sale at $3.2 million

The onetime Encino home of actor and producer Samuel L. Jackson and his wife, actress LaTanya Richardson, is listed for sale at $3.2 million.

Found behind a gated drive in Amestoy Estates, the English Tudor-style home is on about an acre with a 4,491-square-foot main residence, a 2,863-square foot guesthouse, a tennis court and a 66-foot pool and spa.

Built in 1981, the four-bedroom main house features a turreted entry that opens to a double-height foyer and adjacent living room. A country-style kitchen, a formal dining room, a sunroom and a master suite with his and hers closets and a steam shower are also included in the living space. The guesthouse has two additional bedrooms.

Formal landscaping, mature trees, entertainer’s spaces and covered patios make up the grounds. A motor court and five-car garage sit at the front of the home.

Jackson and his wife, having decamped to a Beverly Hills home they purchased from Roseanne Barr in 2001, listed the home that year for $2.8 million, according to The Times. It eventually sold the following year for $1.95 million, records show.

Roseanne Covy of Skyhill Properties is the listing agent.

Jackson, 66, is set to reprise his role as Nick Fury in the upcoming Marvel film “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” due out May 1. Last year, he appeared in such films as “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “RoboCop.”
