Star Trek: Voyager Jeri Ryan's love letter to France is listed by Aaron Kirman and Alan Taylor of John Aaroe Group
From 18th-Century columns and stone fireplace to reclaimed tiles and cobblestones, ardent Francophile Jeri Ryan (Star Trek: Voyager, Leverage, Boston Legal) overlooked no detail in transforming her 1.44-acre Encino property into an homage to a classic country French estate. Now her showpiece is on the market, by Aaron Kirman, President of Aaroe Estates, the luxury property division of John Aaroe Group, and Alan Taylor, Aaroe Estates Director. The complete reimagining of the residence at 5255 Encino Avenue was several years in the making, with $1 million devoted to the grounds alone. All trees, including mature olives and California live oaks, were hand-craned into place. An elaborate French potager (kitchen garden) is highlighted by organic fruit and nut trees including fig, loquat, pecan, peach, pomegranate and orange. Finishes throughout the foot home include Versailles pattern French limestone, Venetian plaster bedroom walls, wide-plank pine floors and a limestone and black walnut kitchen floored in 100-year-old reclaimed terra cotta. The Great Room, anchored by a 1755 stone fireplace, also features a custom stone wall and a massive beamed ceiling. The pool house, based on a French design, is roofed in century-old reclaimed tile. The home, with 6 bedrooms, 12 bathrooms and four bonus structures including a guest house, is lavished with the latest amenities, including a kitchen designed to meet the high standards of Ryan, a serious gourmet chef; a fully equipped gym; and a movie theater with seating for twenty plus a pop-up snow cone machine.
