Producer Chris King swaps one Spanish bungalow for another

Chris King’s Hancock Park bungalow
Actor-producer Chris W. King has paid $2.199 million for a Spanish bungalow a few miles away from his other bungalow in Hollywood.

After listing his Spanish bungalow in Hollywood late last year, Chris W. King has picked up a similar estate a few miles away in Hancock Park. The “Penny Dreadful” producer paid $2.199 million, records show.

At 2,244 square feet, his new place is nearly twice the size of his old one, which is still on the market for $1.519 million.

Tucked behind a landscaped yard and a private courtyard, the 1920s home opens to a one-story floor plan full of arched doorways and dark hardwood. There’s a living room under barrel ceilings, a formal dining room and a chef’s kitchen splashed with marble.


Elsewhere are three bedrooms and three bathrooms, including a master suite with direct access to the backyard.

Outside, the landscaped space holds a grassy yard surrounding a swimming pool, as well as a garage that functions as a yoga studio.

Daniel M. Weiser of the Agency held the listing. Chris Jacobs of Keller Williams Beverly Hills represented the buyer.

King was a supervising producer and executive producer on the supernatural series “Penny Dreadful” from 2014 to 2016. He also directed the “Foo Fighters: Back and Forth” video, which won a Grammy for best long-form video in 2011.
