It’s a long way from Queens Boulevard. “Entourage” creator Doug Ellin is now parting ways with his Beverly Hills, CA, home. The $10 million asking price is nearly twice as much as the $5,930,000 he paid for the place in 2008. Ginger Glass of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage is the listing agent.
Brooklyn-born Ellin moved to Los Angeles in the 1990s and, like the premise of his successful HBO show, he struggled to make it in Hollywood, shooting indies and selling unproduced scripts.
In 2004, his luck turned when the series partly based on his life was launched on the cable network. The show about Hollywood hopeful Vincent Chase (Adrian Grenier), who moves from New York to La-La land with his posse of bros, was a hit.
Ellin’s house is also a hit, and it has all the elements for entertaining your besties. Built in 1936, the gated home has 5,780 square feet of living space, which includes six bedrooms and six baths.
The two-story foyer leads to an open living room with a vaulted ceiling and, naturally, a pool table. The dining room is also part of the open floor plan.
The chef’s kitchen features a Sub-Zero and Wolf range, three ovens, an island, and a breakfast area with french doors that open to the patio.
If all that seems a little too formal for your buddies, you can head to the family room, which features a step-down rotunda bar that opens out to the backyard. We’re sure there’s plenty of Turtle’s tequila to go around.
Mrs. Ari, take note. A “fabulous” master suite upstairs includes a sitting room with fireplace, a hotel-like bath with a “huge” walk-in closet, steam shower, and spa tub. There are three additional suites upstairs, and two downstairs, which can function as guest or office space.
Outside you’ll find a patio with pergola, a barbecue area, lounge with fireplace, and saltwater pool.
Ellin, who was head writer for all eight seasons of “Entourage,” also wrote the screenplay for the movie based on the show.
