Actor Rhys Darby looks to cap off his stay in Studio City


Actor-comedian Rhys Darby, who’s best known for his role in “Flight of the Conchords,” is ready to fly the coop in Studio City. His East Coast-inspired estate is up for grabs at $2.199 million.

That’s around $300,000 more than he paid for it four years ago; records show he snatched it shortly after a remodel brought the 1940s home into the 21st century.

Found in Colfax Meadows, a longtime favorite for Hollywood homebuyers, the two-story residence features coffered ceilings, light hardwood floors and paneled walls across 3,100 square feet.


On the main level, there’s a foyer, a formal dining room, a living room with a glass-encased wine display and a center-island kitchen splashed with Calacatta marble.

Five bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms round out the floor plan. Vaulted ceilings and a chandelier top the spacious master suite, which expands to a writer’s nook, a sleek bathroom and a wraparound balcony.

A handful of outdoor spaces dot the landscaped grounds. A cozy porch overlooks a grassy yard in the front, and out back, a covered cabana and patio adjoin a swimming pool and spa.

Michael Bergin of Compass holds the listing.

A native of New Zealand, Darby began acting in the mid-2000s. In addition to “Flight of the Conchords,” in which he plays the band’s manager, his film credits include “Yes Man,” “What We Do in the Shadows” and “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.” | Twitter: @jflem94
