Just in time for the 20th anniversary of “Melrose Place,” cast member Grant Show has put his house in the Hollywood Hills on the market at $1.825 million.

The Spanish-style home, built in 1927, needed extensive repairs when purchased by Show, who did a lot of the work himself. One of the major changes he made was to rearrange the floor plan. When originally built, the front door of the 3,483-square-foot home opened up to a foyer that led to the master bedroom, a bathroom and a large den or entertainment room. The kitchen, dining room and two bedrooms were down a flight of stairs.

Now the main floor contains the kitchen, dining and living rooms, and all three bedrooms are below. Features include 20-foot-tall living room ceilings, multiple balconies and solar-generated electricity. The house has 21/2 bathrooms and sits on a quarter-acre with city views.

The actor bought the property in 1997 for $560,000 shortly after ending his run as Jake Hanson. Since “Melrose Place,” Grant has appeared on shows including “Six Feet Under” (2002), “Swingtown” (2008), “Private Practice” (2008-11) and “Burn Notice” (2011). The 50-year-old is on the new TV drama “Devious Maids.”
