Variety | Genie Francis and Jonathan Frakes Buy Woodland Hills Mansion (EXCLUSIVE)

Veteran soap star Genie Francis and actor/-director Jonathan Frakes laid out $2.8 million — the full asking price — for an opulently appointed mansion in an affluent but otherwise under-the-radar guard-gated Woodland Hills enclave. The beige stucco and stone-accented mansion, munificently described in marketing materials as “French provincial” in style, has six bedrooms and seven full and two half bathrooms in close to 9,000 square feet.

A circular, double-height foyer with an inlaid marble floor, a curved staircase and a colossal crystal chandelier, leads to ample formal living and dining rooms. A paneled library/office features a coffered ceiling and a black marble fireplace, while the center island kitchen opens to an informal dining area and family room that includes a brick fireplace and a sunken wet bar. Five en suite bedrooms share the second floor with a gigantic entertainment room with a wet bar as well as the master suite that incorporates a pink marble bathroom with wall-to-wall carpeting. The completely private backyard, ringed by mature trees, offers a gazebo, a small patch of lawn, a built-in barbecue and a swimming pool and spa.
