Terry Crews buys Reginald Johnson-designed Pasadena estate

Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Terry Crews has finally purchased his own home, nearly 20 years after selling off the original property he purchased when he moved to LA.

According to The Dirt, Crews picked up a Reginald Johnson-designed Pasadena estate for US$5.6 million, grabbing a great deal for himself with the asking price originally listed at US$6.9 million.

Crews and his family had rented various homes since he moved to LA to pursue a career in entertainment after failing to make it in professional football.

The Pasadena house was built in the early 1920s and sits well back from the street on a flat 1.14-acre lot.

The home features four bedrooms, 492sq m of living space and includes terracotta tile floors throughout the main living spaces, plenty of natural light, arched double doors and wood-burning fireplaces.

The formal dining room contains two large chandeliers placed diagonally from one another, with both overlooking circular dining tables. 

Upstairs, the master suite includes polished hardwood floors and a sitting area, along with a private office nook with views overlooking the front yard. 

At the back of the house, balconies and a number of terraces overlook the pill-shaped swimming pool with a diving board, surrounded by mature palm trees and green grassy lawn.

Two patios surround the pool, while there’s also a two-bedroom guesthouse that’s attached to a three-car garage. 

And at the far rear of the property lies a full-size tennis court, nicely completing this sophisticated estate.
