The Big Bang Theory star Kunal Nayyar is ready to offload his picturesque Hollywood Hills compound. The actor and his wife, model and fashion designer Neha Kapur, recently listed their single-story Mediterranean-style villa for $3.995 million. The couple originally purchased the property back in 2011, and substantially personalized it with the help of designers Lory and Mats Johansson of Just Joh.
The home consists of a 4,012-square-foot main house that hosts three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms, as well as two guesthouses with one bedroom and one bathroom each. Situated on half an acre above the Sunset Strip, the three structures form a somewhat triangular shape, something that’s considered “very auspicious,” Kapur told Architectural Digest in 2017, noting that the configuration was part of what sold her and Nayyar on the property.
“You walked in and just felt you were in this sanctuary.” It helps that the spacious living room is flooded with natural light, thanks to a wall of windows and a set of French doors that opens out onto the courtyard. Built-in shelves flank an elegant wood-burning fireplace in the space, and there’s also a built-in wet bar.
The chef’s kitchen is impressive, with a skylight situated directly above a smooth, jet-black marble-topped center island. The office features a coffered ceiling and panoramic views. But it’s the master suite that is the epitome of luxury, with a cavernous master marble bathroom boasting a jetted deep-soaking tub and several ceiling-height double doors that open out onto the surrounding patios.
Out back, a swimming pool is set between a covered firepit and a built-in barbecue grill, while numerous courtyards and patios are shaded by mature and exotic trees. A detached pool house has its own full kitchen, bathroom, and living area. Last fall, Nayyar and Kapur purchased Nicolas Cage’s Tudor-style former home in the nearby Hancock Park neighborhood for $7.5 million.
