'Inspectors' actor Carlos Bernard sells his whimsical home in Hollywood Hills
Carlos Bernard, who starred on "24" and is in the series "The Inspectors," has sold a whimsical home in Hollywood Hills for $1.2 million.
The country English-style house, built in 1938 and set behind a white picket fence, has such fanciful details as a crooked street number above the front door, pine-tree cutouts in the shutters and serpentine banister rails.
Open-beam ceilings in the living and dining room and skylights give the 1,801 square feet of interior space a light and bright feeling while maintaining a cottage vibe. A galley kitchen with marble countertops, three bedrooms and three bathrooms, one with a claw-foot tub and another with a window seat, round out the main living spaces.
The garage was converted to a studio/gym that features a pot-bellied stove.
The hedged-in yard includes a brick walkway, patios, mature trees and a swimming pool with a spa.
Bernard, 52, was on the action series "24" during its run from 2001 to 2006 and has reprised his role several times since. He has also been in "Dallas" (2012-13) and "Scoundrels" (2010).
The actor bought the property a dozen years ago for $835,000, public records show.
Mica Rabineau of Nourmand & Associates represented the buyer.
