“Lost” Actor Matthew Fox Opts for Oregon, Lists L.A. Home for Sale
For six years, actor Matthew Fox lived on the Hawaiian island of Oahu battling bizarre monsters and doing some medical sleuthing as Dr. Jack Shepherd on the hit TV show “Lost.”
Prior to that, the actor lived with his family in a Spanish bungalow in Manhattan Beach, CA. But with “Lost” out of the way and a new home in Bend, OR, Fox has listed the 4-bedroom, 2-bath home on the Manhattan Beach real estate market for $1.995 million.
Fox purchased the home for $880,000 in 1999 in the midst of his role on “Party of Five.” Although the show was popular, it was “Lost” that propelled Fox into stardom. Despite his star status, Fox didn’t return to California after the show wrapped up filming, preferring to buy a home far from the Hollywood hubbub in Bend, OR.
Fox’s home in Manhattan Beach sits on the hill above the Pacific Ocean, complete with panoramic beach and water views from the upper floor rooms and wraparound balcony. Spanish detailing is found throughout the house from coved ceilings, colorful tiled stairs and dark wood molding. The family room is dominated by a sand stucco fireplace and cathedral-height ceilings.
The listing is held by Jonathan Coleman of Real Estate West.
