Actor and comedian Lamorne Morris, who appears in the new National Geographic docudrama miniseries “Valley of the Boom,” has found some space in the San Fernando Valley to call his own. He’s bought a home in Tarzana for $3.11 million, records show.

The two-story house, completed last year, is an updated play on the Spanish style and features a clay-tile roof, multiple balconies and a white exterior that bears a slight resemblance to the stucco facades popularized in the 1920s and ’30s.

The 5,840-square-foot floor plan is largely devoted to open-plan space features a two-story foyer that opens to a living room with a floor-to-ceiling fireplace. A formal dining room with glass-enclosed wine storage, a home theater, an office and a center-island kitchen fill out the main level.

The house has five bedrooms and 7.5 bathrooms including a master suite outfitted with custom closets and a fireplace.


Outdoors, the more than one-third-acre lot holds multiple patios, a swimming pool with a spa and a pool house. Lawn and landscaping fill out the grounds, which are hedged and fenced.

The property originally hit the market in early 2018 for $3.589 million, but was more recently listed for $3.25 million, records show.

Morris, 35, is known for his role as Winston on the long-running Fox sitcom “New Girl,” which concluded last year after eight seasons. In addition to his television credits, he has appeared in the films “Barbershop: The Next Cut” (2016), “Sandy Wexler” (2017) and “Game Night” (2018).

He is reportedly signed on to play the lead in the upcoming Hulu series “Woke,” a half-hour comedy based on the life of cartoonist Keith Knight.

Aaron Kirman of Compass was the listing agent. Joshua and Matthew Altman, the Altman brothers of Douglas Elliman, represented the buyer, according to the Multiple Listing Service. | Twitter: @LATHotProperty
