Glee Creator Ryan Murphy Lists Massive 'Dream House' in Laguna Beach for $18 Million
Ryan Murphy Is Moving on from His Laguna Beach Home
Murphy’s stunning estate sits on 1.25 acres with unobstructed views of San Clemente and the Catalina Islands. It’s completely walled and gated for privacy, and boasts retractable glass doors that lead to the outside for true indoor-outdoor living.
He admitted to Architectural Digest in January 2017 that he was somewhat addicted to redesigning the California mansion he shares with his husband, David Miller, and their sons, Logan and Ford. “Design has always been a passion of mine, a place to pour anxiety and joy in equal measure,” he said. “When my business manager complained of my Laguna hobby, I replied, ‘I figure it’s either furniture or cocaine.’”
The main house has four bedrooms, and an ocean view master suite with a private study. “The Laguna home was always a dream, purchased with my first real money (from the pilot of Nip/Tuck),” he told AD.
Room to Unwind
This master bath boasts a free-standing tub, walk-in shower and a seating area. Murphy also decked it out with some artwork from his personal collection, which he curated with interior designer Cliff Fong.
Ode to the Golden State
“The California dream house now became a literal tribute to the photographers, furniture designers, potters and decorators who have, over the last 100 years, made the Golden State their home as well,” he said of his treasure trove of sculptures, paintings and art installations.
The house also has an undeniable industrial edge. The base of his abode was described in the magazine as "concrete and glass and minimalist."
The pool court and pavilion is a particularly masterful addition to the estate, which also includes a two-bedroom guest house and gardens. The 43-foot lap pool sits in front of a two-story structure that includes a terrace, fireplace and pool bath on both levels.
