Actress Jeri Ryan lists Encino estate she created in classic French-country style
Vive la France! Jeri Ryan of “Star Trek: Voyager” fame has put her Encino house, which displays her love for the country, up for sale at $6.999 million.
The ardent Francophile had materials, antiquities and architectural elements imported from France to create the classic French-country estate. A 1755 stone fireplace, 18th-century columns and reclaimed tile and cobblestones were among the materials used to realize her vision for the 1.44-acre estate.
The black walnut kitchen features a 100-year-old reclaimed terra cotta floor. The French design-inspired pool house has a century-old reclaimed tile roof.
The great room is distinguished by a custom stone wall and a beamed ceiling. Versailles-pattern French limestone floors, Venetian plaster bedroom walls and wide-plank pine floors are among other details.
Ryan, a serious chef, outfitted the kitchen with the latest amenities. She also set up a fully equipped gym and a movie theater with seating for 20. For fun, she installed a pop-up snow cone machine.
There are six bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and four bonus structures on the property, including a guest house.
The actress bought the property in 2000, according to public records, and recreated it over the course of several years, spending $1 million just on the grounds. All the trees, including the mature olives and California live oaks, were brought in by crane.
A French kitchen garden is planted with fruit and nut trees, including fig, loquat, pecan, peach, pomegranate and orange.
Ryan, 48, gained fame on “Star Trek: Voyager” for her role as Borg Seven of Nine. She is in the current series “Bosch.” Her earlier television work includes “Boston Legal” (2001-04), “Leverage” (2009-11) and “Body of Proof” (2011-13).
Aaron Kirman and Alan Taylor of John Aaroe Group are the listing agents.
