Best-Selling Author Dennis Lehane Is Turning the Page on His $3.3M LA Home

Dennis Lehane, whose dark and twisty novels have won him accolades, is looking for a buyer to write him an offer on his lovely Los Angeles home. The asking price is $3,295,000.

Lehane penned “Gone, Baby, Gone” and “Mystic River,” among other titles. He purchased the property in 2020 for $2,395,000 and could make a bundle, if he lands anywhere near a full-price deal.

The almost 4,700-square-foot, five-bedroom, six-bath, Mediterranean-style dwelling is located in the sought-after Kentwood neighborhood.

Built in 2006

The home sports a traditional interior design, with some strong California-casual vibes. Light and airy rooms, large windows, a white palette, and soft textures give the space a sleek, upscale aesthetic.

A fireplace and elegant mantle grace the living room, while the kitchen is well-furnished with a huge island, wine fridge and seating for five. There are also double sinks, quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances.

The main bedroom is a serene retreat with a large walk-in closet, marble bathroom, and a soaking tub beneath an opaque window.

The home is made for entertaining, thanks to a personal screening room, a flex room with yoga-studio potential, and a wet bar on the lower level.

A courtyard behind the home offers a lagoon-style pool, spa, and patio with stone detailing, all flanked by swaying palm trees. Massive hedges cocoon the rear area, smartly hiding it from prying eyes.
