Julianna Margulies sells Santa Monica home to Ed O’Neill

Actress Julianna Margulies has sold her Santa Monica house to actor Ed O’Neill for $3,350,001.

The Spanish-style two-story house, built in 1927, has a living room with a fireplace, a formal dining room, a sitting area in the updated kitchen, a den with a fireplace, an office/library, three bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms. A detached guesthouse contains one bedroom and one bathroom. There is a swimming pool.

Move-up buyer O’Neill also listed his 1936 home, in the sought-after “north of Montana” Avenue area of Santa Monica, in early April for $2,295,000. The modern Craftsman was in escrow in 10 days and is expected to close by the end of May. He purchased the house in 2007 for $2,385,000, according to public records.

Among rooms in his 2,104 square feet are a kitchen/great room with skylights, a master suite with an office, two additional bedrooms and two bathrooms. There are fireplaces in the living room and patio area. The detached garage has been converted to a studio.


Margulies, 43, won a Golden Globe and a Screen Actors Guild Award for her starring role in the legal drama “The Good Wife” (2009-11) and an Emmy for “ER,” on which she co-starred from 1994-2000, returning for an episode in the final season in 2009.

O’Neill, 64, is a regular on the sitcom “Modern Family” (2009-11) and starred in “Married With Children” (1987-97).

Leah Lail of Coldwell Banker’s Beverly Hills East office had the listing on Margulies’ house. Dawn Robertson and Nancie Richards of Keller Williams Realty, Beverly Hills, represent O’Neill in his sale and purchase.
