Dexter Star Michael C. Hall Sells Hollywood Hills Home for $2 Million
Michael C. Hall, best known for his role as 'Dexter Morgan' in the popular crime-drama series "Dexter", has sold his Hollywood Hills home for $2 million, according to several news sources.
The Los Angeles Times broke news of the sale. Apparently, Hall took a slight loss on the asking price of the home. He had first listed it for $2.1 million sometime back in January 2013. Hall reportedly purchased the home in July 2012 for $1.9 million. Although he took a cut on the list price, he still managed to rake in a $100,000 profit on the deal.
Hall was floored the first time he saw the house.
"I felt transported to an Old World oasis and marveled that I was in the heart of Hollywood. It's filled with surprises and an understated, earthy elegance ... I've never come across a home quite like it," he told Zillow.
Listing records at Zillow show that the residence sold just two days before Christmas in 2013. The home is a 4572 square feet, single family residence that sits securely on a private, gated 0.32 acre lot.
Comprising of five bedrooms and six bathrooms, the home has hardwood floors, drywall ceilings and large glass doors and windows. Exclusive features include a media room, a wine room, and a man cave. A separate one bed-one bath guest house also exists on the property.

While Hall listed the home in January, in May that year he purchased a cool Los Feliz digs for $3.8 million. He now lives there.
Hall earlier lived in a starchitect designed home, which was built by famed Los Angeles designer, Hal Levitt, in Hollywood Hills. Hall sold the home in August 2012 for around $1.8 million. He had listed it for $1.99 million and despite selling it under the asking price made a slight profit as he had purchased the home for $1.75 million.
On the work front, 'Dexter' just wrapped up its eighth season amid much discontent from fans and critics. The season finale of the eighth season left many unsatisfied. However, more recently, Showtime's president David Nevins said that they have a Dexter-like project planned, reports Sydney Morning Herald.
When the Associated Pressed asked Hall about it, he said:
"I can't even wrap my mind around that. And it's all just theoretical until there is some sort of script reflecting somebody's idea of where it could possibly go. But it's hard for me to imagine what that would be."
"Yeah, as far as playing Dexter again for an undefined amount of time, that's a little daunting to consider. But doing another television series - there's a lot of amazing stuff on TV. I don't want to do that right away. But I wouldn't say never to that," he added.
