Actor Paul Wesley is ready to part with his contemporary home in Studio City

Paul Wesley of “The Vampire Diaries” fame has put his contemporary-style home in the Studio City hills up for sale at $2.245 million.

It was just a year ago that the actor bought the Jay Vanos-designed house from Charlie Gillingham of the Counting Crows. Since then, he’s paid great attention to the interiors, adding a Sonos system, new cabinetry, custom drapes and a in-wall home theater. The grounds have also been redone with outdoor lighting and a one-ton stone fountain imported from Asia.

Built in 2010, the 3,240-square-foot house has a clean look with gallery walls, vaulted truss ceilings and light bamboo floors throughout. Clerestories, walls of windows and multiple decks take in city and mountain views.

Open-plan living and dining rooms, a chef’s kitchen with walnut cabinetry, a library/den and an office are among the common areas. The master suite features remote-controlled blinds and a fireplace for a total of four bedrooms and five bathrooms.


Outdoors, hedged and fenced grounds are filled with mature trees, lawns and a private hiking trail. A three-car a garage sits off the gated entrance.

Carl Gambino of Westside Estate Agency holds the listing.

Wesley, 33, has appeared on “The Vampire Diaries” since 2009. His other television credits include “Everwood,” “24” and “Army Wives.”

He will appear in the upcoming Kevin Pollak comedy “The Late Bloomer.”
