Creator of ‘Grey’s Anatomy,’ ‘Scandal’  is asking $10M for 1920s traditional estate

LOS ANGELES — Television megaproducer and screenwriter Shonda Rhimes has listed her longtime estate in Hancock Park, but her setting will remain rooted in the historic L.A. neighborhood.

Rhimes is seeking $9.995 million for the 1920s traditional that she has called home since 2010. The move comes roughly a year after the Hollywood force bought another home in the area for $4.6 million.

The nearly 8,300-square-foot house sits up from the street on a half-acre lot and features hedges and mature sycamore and elm trees off the front. Beyond the formal entry, the main house includes scaled formal rooms, a library and chef's kitchen that opens to the den. 

Two bathrooms, two walk-in closets and a sitting room/office constitute the master suite. Another bedroom, formerly another office, is where Rhimes penned screenplays for many of her hit shows. There are six bedrooms and nine bathrooms in all.
