Action Star Frank Grillo Is Selling His Lavish Hollywood Hills Mansion for $9 Million

Frank Grillo may be a born-and-bred New Yorker, but the experienced martial artist, clothing entrepreneur and prolific actor (The Purge film series, the 2022 biopic Lamborghini: The Man Behind the Legend, Brock Rumlow in Avengers: Endgame and Captain America) has been leading a ritzy Los Angeles lifestyle in recent years. In October 2022, Grillo bought a very chic mansion in the hills above Hollywood; that elegant spread has just popped back up for sale, asking a hair under $9 million.

Secluded within the deepest reaches of a verdant and secluded canyon, the ultra-contemporary residence features a strikingly monochromatic color scheme and minimalist finishes. Built new in 2019, the house was first offered with an optimistic asking price of nearly $13 million, but lingered on the market for more than three years. After multiple realtor changes and price chops, Grillo finally snagged the cool digs at a bargain-basement $6.6 million price, a nearly 50% discount off the original sticker.

Frank Grillo House Los Angeles
Set near the deepest part of a semi-remote canyon in the Hollywood Hills, the tri-level house is built into the side of steep hill.

There’s a very long driveway that gently ascends to a motorcourt fronting a three-car garage. Invisible from the street behind layers of mature trees and tall hedges, the home’s entryway offers a vaulted ceiling and abundant white oak, design features that carry on throughout the rest of the house. The light-flooded indoor/outdoor living room, complete with disappearing walls of glass and clerestory windows, is quintessentially California and is serviced by a Euro-chic kitchen with quartz countertops and premium appliances.

Five bedrooms are sprawled throughout 8,000 square feet of living space, each with their own trendy bathroom. But by far the most eye-catching is the sumptuous primary suite, which flaunts a bathroom with open showers and floor-to-ceiling walls of glass and an ultra-minimalist closet/dressing room.

The home features clean-lined and contemporary interiors, including a sleekly minimal kitchen with Euro-chic cabinetry.

Other estate amenities include tall hedges and tropical plantings that amp up the home’s feeling of seclusion. Out back, a plunge pool has a Baja shelf for sunbathing and inset spa; back inside the house are a movie theater and gym for further relaxation. There’s also a wraparound sundeck with a full built-in barbecue center and kitchen, ideal for al fresco entertaining.

Seven years ago, Grillo and his ex-wife Wendy Moniz reportedly paid $4.5 million for a smaller contemporary home in Pacific Palisades. While records show they continue to jointly own that property, the house itself is now occupied exclusively by Moniz.

Christopher Dyson of The Agency holds the listing.
