If you’re looking for an art deco paradise in the Hollywood Hills and have a cool $3.35 million to spend, Walton Goggins’ house is the place for you.
It is no surprise Walton Goggins chose to reside in this star-studded district, with a career in acting that dates back to the early 90s. He first gained global attention after playing Detective Shane Vendrell in The Shield before landing roles in Shanghai Noon and The Bourne Identity. He also notably won an Academy Award as one of the producers of the famous short film The Accountant.

The actor’s home is the epitome of Californian style, located at 7475 Franklin Avenue in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Los Angeles. The West-Coastal sun has glazed this property in sunlight since 1927 when it was built by Harold O. Sexsmith, a local designer who regularly featured in the Los Angeles Times.
The listing is, therefore, a unique opportunity to own a piece of history- one that has only changed hands three times in its 94-year reign.
Immediately beyond the private gate and original coffered front door is a grand foyer which is blessed with period tile floors. We can imagine those floors have seen a few champagne spillages throughout its stylish history – especially in the roaring '20s.
The property is a maze of timeless sophistication, with enduring features that exhibit its heritage- from the wood-burning fireplace to the Juliet balcony that overlooks the front garden.
There is also a fully-equipped chef’s kitchen that is complete with a large pantry to store all that champagne, of course.
The upstairs is no less fashionable, as the master bedroom is complete with an en-suite and a spacious walk-in closet, so you don’t need to worry about space after a morning shopping on Rodeo Drive.

Alongside the main suite, the property has another four bedrooms, two additional bathrooms, and an office – because you can’t spend every hour partying, unfortunately.

The south-facing garden oozes the tropical opulence that West Hollywood is so loved for, with a large swimming pool that is framed by citrus fruit trees and fairy lights. The house also boasts a two-car garage, where we imagine the vehicles have at least changed since the 1920s.
Where does Walton Goggins live now?
Walton, a native of Birmingham, Alabama, has not disclosed the plans for his next move. The actor has been known to take a sabbatical in India in the past. He could, therefore, be setting up roots almost anywhere in the world.
7475 Franklin Avenue is currently listed with Josh Myler of The Agency.
