Michael C. Hall Buys Spanish Colonial in L.A.

Michael C Hall Dexter's 1923 Spanish ColonialMichael C. Hall, star of the Showtime drama Dexter, recently purchased this $3.8 million Spanish Colonial overlooking downtown L.A. It was built in 1923 but has been so thoroughly updated that you’d hardly know it was that old.

The decorating is very “on trend” with all the gray. Do you like it?

By the way, Hall’s neighbor happens to be Private Practice star Kate Walsh, who’s still trying to sell her own Spanish Colonial across the street for $4.75 million. You can see her house here.

    That bathroom looks very “he man” stay out of my space(but yikes, those light fixtures), but the rest of the house I like, especially the sliding barn doors. I would add a pot filler faucet.

    Wow! The exterior totally belies what’s inside … Very fresh and and up-to-date yet traditional. Love the color scheme and all of those windows! Definitely putting these pics in my ideas folder!

    It’s a beautiful home and is very on trend, but the windows, doors, wood floors, and beams will always be in style. I love the gray kitchen. If someone else buys the house in a few years and decides gray is out, I would imagine it wouldn’t be a big deal to paint or replace them since they are already spending over $3 million on the house, lol.

    “You’d hardly know it was that old” – very true, and too bad.

    It’s a little too “on trend” in my opinion….it seems to have little classic charm at all, which is a shame. Don’t get me wrong, I’d take it, though. :)

  6. Teresa says

    Beautiful exterior but the inside really disappointed me. I was expecting to see something with Spanish Colonial character and charm instead of a more modern and updated interior which is unfortunate.

  7. Jen says

    it is nice and all I wish it had more carcher and color
    I like the black title and the pool though

    “You’d hardly know it was that old” – very true, and too bad.” My sentiments exactly, Laura. :-)

  9. Alie B says

    It’s nice, but rather muted. It almost feels as though every room is on a dimmer switch. I really like gray but this is alllotttt of gray. :)

    I love gray but I think it would have looked “happier” if they had painted the kitchen and bathroom cabinets a lighter shade of gray. Or maybe if they had taken the photos with more daylight? Love the beamed ceilings.

      I like gray too but I agree that most of this house is very cold feeling. It could have just used a pop of color here or there to brighten it up.

  11. Maria says

    Well, it’s not Spanish Colonial anymore. Remuddled into typical LA trendy.

    “You’d hardly know it was that old” – very true, and too bad.” I’ll third this statement. Too many of these gems of older homes are remuddled into something bland and charmless.

    Just got back tonight from a week in So Cal. This house makes me feel like the rest of the area. Pretty for a while, mostly interesting for the variety, but ultimately…ehh.

  13. Karen says

    Yes, this is very LA “on trend”. I don’t like the hand fixtures in the bathroom at all, despite that it fits with the show. I don’t really care for all of the gray either. I like some of the architectural features–the wood floors, ceilings, beams, and windows. Some of the rugs are lovely and I also like the bedroom. Still the outside is my favorite.

    This house makes you immortal man… As you live in this, you cannot die…

    I was in this home in 1958; it had old colonial Spanish charm in and outside, and I fell in love with the home; sadly someone else alwaysowned it.

    updated is great but original had character
