Jared Padalecki, who stars on the long-running CW series "Supernatural," has recorded a very down-to-earth house sale in the San Fernando Valley for $2.4 million.
The 1924 Spanish-style home, featuring vaulted beam ceilings and stained glass, has been fully renovated. A rough-hewn wooden door serves as the house's portal, so to speak.
The 3,818 square feet of space inside includes a massive arch-topped window, a glass-enclosed library/office, a family/game room, four bedrooms and five bathrooms.
The more than one-third of an acre of grounds has patios, lawn and mature trees.
Padalecki, 31, has starred as demon-hunting brother Sam Winchester on the fantasy-horror series since 2005. The CW recently renewed the show for a 10th season.
Before "Supernatural" he spent five years on "Gilmore Girls."
The actor bought the property in 2009 for $1.775 million, public records show. He spends much of his time in Vancouver, Canada, where "Supernatural" is filmed.
Gail Steinberg and Ingrid Sacerio of Dilbeck Realtors were the listing agents. Melissa Alt of Teles Properties represented the buyer.

Old Hollywood still resonates
