Buy the (Mini) Farm from Rainn Wilson

Article excerpt

THOUGH RAINN WILSON is best known as paper salesman and beet farmer Dwight Schrute on "The Office," there are no beets to be harvested at his charming mini farm in suburban Los Angeles that's come up for sale at close to $1.7 million. The thrice-Emmy-nominated actor purchased the property with his longtime wife, fiction writer Holiday Reinhorn, in late 2005 for a smidgen less than $1.2 million.

Listed with Traci Eiler and Gary Ruebsamen at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties, the almost two-thirds-of-an-acre spread is nestled into rolling, oak-dotted hills in an affluent, semiru-ral area of Agoura Hills, about 35 heavily trafficked miles west of downtown Los Angeles. The main house, a not-quite-3,300-square-foot farmhouse with three bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, is obscured from the street behind a carefully clipped hedge and a verdant wall of mature trees. The living room stretches to more than 31 feet in length, with a built-in window seat next to an old-timey wood stove. The adjoining dining area is open to the up-to-date country kitchen with a restored vintage range set against a multicolored Arts and Crafts-inspired tile backsplash. The master bedroom offers French doors to a private balcony with a view of the surrounding trees. In the back of the house, a long flight of steps leads down a tree-shaded hillside to the mini farm's livestock facilities, including a trio of a small barns.

The suburban spread came up for rent in 2019 - first at $3,500 per month and later at $4,500 per month - and over time the asking price for a sale slowly slid to just under $1.1 million before it was recently sold at an as-yet-unrecorded price. The nearly 3.75-acre estate is anchored by an almost 6,600-square-foot stone manor house of no architectural pedigree - listings describe it as an "executive home" with five bedrooms and six full and two half bathrooms. Notable features include a double-height foyer with twin staircases, an oak-paneled study and a four-car garage topped by guest or staff quarters. …
