The Los Feliz home of L.A. Police Chief William J. Bratton and his wife, Rikki Klieman, has come on the Multiple Listing Service at $1,875,000.

The one-story house, built in 1964, has four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,716 square feet. Described as an “architectural hacienda,” the private walled and gated home has a courtyard entry, city light views, outdoor entertainment areas and a swimming pool surrounded by mature trees and landscaping. Inside the updated post-and-beam house are vaulted ceilings, hardwood floors and a redone kitchen.

The couple purchased the Los Feliz home in early 2003 for $1,244,000.

Bratton, 61, the former head of the Boston and New York police, was appointed to his Los Angeles post in 2002.


In early June, Queen Elizabeth II announced that L.A.'s top cop will receive the honorary title of Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. The honor, for promoting cooperation between U.S. and United Kingdom police forces, will be bestowed in September. Media reports have speculated that Bratton may one day become the head of Scotland Yard.

Klieman is an attorney and TV legal analyst. She left her show “Both Sides” (1994-2003) to move to Los Angeles in 2003. Since then, she has expanded her acting career. She has had recurring roles on “Las Vegas” (2005-2008) and “Shark” (2006-2008) in addition to guest appearances on other shows.

The listings agents are Dorothy Carter and Michael Orland of Keller Williams Realty, Los Feliz, according to the MLS.
