Some people, just like some places, are meant to entertain.
Just ask actor Tony Hale. The characters he’s portrayed have been through a lot. In his turn as Buster Bluth in ‘Arrested Development,’ he had his hand bit off by a loose seal on his very first time in the ocean. As Gary Walsh on Veep he serves as assistant to an ever demanding President of the United States.
It was all worth it, though: bringing his odd quirkiness to those roles turned out to be the secret to Hale’s success, and it allowed him to buy a Los Feliz Traditional in 2005, just two years into his Arrested Development career. The actor recently listed the home at what would have been a tidy profit, but decided to keep it after all and rent it out instead.
No word on whether, like the model house in Arrested Development, this one has a secret room. What we do know, however, is that the 1937 home, located at 3458 Griffith Park has four beds and three baths over 2200 square feet. The rest of the house is filled with great spaces for people to gather. A large open first floor blends seamlessly into the backyard, where one finds the very heart of the home: a massive outdoor fireplace flanked by comfy places to sit.
A perfect place for an entertainer to entertain.
The LA Times thought so too, recently profiling the home, as well as the two Teles agents who represent it. Heather T. Roy and Learka Bosnak, working as a duo, know a bit about entertaining themselves. Roy is a veteran of the entertainment industry as a former literary agent. Bosnak has a background in politics and has lived and worked in nearly a dozen countries. Between the two of them, they have the perfect combination of experience to represent a home like this.
“I love my job,” says Heather, “I love putting people and property together.” “We help people make some of the biggest decisions of their lives,” adds Learka. “It’s exciting and it’s an honor.”
In the same sense that some people and some places are meant to entertain, some people are passionate about matching clients with the perfect homes for them. Roy and Bosnak represent that – and that aspect of Teles – perfectly.
