Actress Kerry Washington of “Scandal” and her husband, retired NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, have sold their home in Hollywood Hills West for $2.68 million — just under the $2.695 million asking price.
The fenced-and-gated French Country-style house, built in 1926 and since updated, sits up from the street and takes in views of the Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory.
The 3,855 square feet of white-walled space includes a rotunda entry, a living room with a fireplace, an updated kitchen and a gym.
The master suite has a custom walk-in closet and a tiled bath for a total of five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and a powder room.
French doors open to a wooded setting with a courtyard, an outdoor living room and large lawn. Stone-lined paths wind through the three-quarter-acre grounds to chauffeur’s quarters, a guesthouse, a swimming pool and a basketball half-court.
There’s also a two-car garage.
The couple bought the property two years ago from actress and comedian Nicole Sullivan for $1.865 million.
James Foreman of Sotheby’s International Realty was the listing agent. Jordana Leigh of Rodeo Realty repped the buyer.
Washington, 38, is known for her leading role on the television drama “Scandal.” Her film credits include “The Details” (2011), “A Thousand Words” (2012) and “Django Unchained” (2012).
Asomugha, 34, spent 11 seasons in the NFL with the Oakland Raiders, Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers, making three Pro Bowls as a defensive back.
More recently, the former first-round pick out of UC Berkeley has taken on acting, appearing in episodes of “Friday Night Lights” and “Kroll Show.”
