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

Rhys Darby’s Studio City estate
“Flight of the Conchords” actor Rhys Darby has put his Studio City home of four years up for sale at $2.199 million.

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
