UPDATE 8/22/13: Breckin Meyer’s Beverly Hills home has sold for $2.775 million.
ORIGINAL POST: Breckin Meyer made his “Escape from L.A.” on screen in ’96. Now the actor, writer and producer is potentially escaping Beverly Hills, parting ways with his longtime residence, located at 2220 Bowmont Dr, Beverly Hills, CA.
Listed for $2.995 million, the 1936-built home has wood-vaulted ceilings, a Bohemian-inspired living room and a vine-covered pergola in the backyard. The master bedroom also features a secluded roof terrace and a newly renovated modern bathroom.
Meyer and his wife Deborah Kaplan moved into the 4-bedroom house in September 2003, just three months before the birth of their daughter. Last fall, the couple announced plans to divorce after being separated for some time.
It will be interesting to see if the “Franklin & Bash” actor stays in the coveted 90210. Meyer has lived in Beverly Hills for most of his life, attending elementary school with Drew Barrymore and a local high school.
The actor is returning as Elmo “Jared” Franklin in the third season of the hit TNT series this June. He’s also been busy creating the second season of TBS’ “Men at Work,” which premiered on April 4.
Meyer and Kaplan bought the Beverly Glen home for $1.875 million in 2003. Their current asking price is 96.5 percent more expensive than the median home in the area, but 6.3 percent less per square foot.
