Joe Manganiello's House: The Sexiest Werewolf Ever Takes a Bite Out of the Hollywood Hills

By on July 5, 2013 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

Joe Manganiello found his way to theater in tried and true fashion.  He was a multi-sport athlete in high school, and played the lead in his school's musical his senior year.  After a torn MCL curtailed his football career his senior year, he decided to audition for Carnegie Mellon's School of Drama.  He was not accepted, but spent the next year honing his craft at the University of Pittsburgh and then re-auditioned.  This time, he made it in.  After graduating with a BFA in Acting in 2000, he relocated to Los Angeles, where he landed his first role as Eugene "Flash" Thompson in "Spider Man".  From there, he went on to roles on a range of television shows, including "So Notorious", "Las Vegas", "Jake in Progress", "Close to Home", "Scrubs", "American Heiress", "How I Met Your Mother", "One Tree Hill", 'Til Death", "CSI", "CSI: NY", and "CSI: Miami".  More recently, he co-starred in the films "Magic Mike" and "How I Met Your Mother".  However, he is most widely recognized for his work as Alcide Herveaux on the hit paranormal drama, "True Blood".  He has been appearing on the show since 2010, and became a series regular in 2011.  His portrayal of the character has earned him numerous honors.  As it is clear that he currently has some job security, he has done what most actors do when they finally decide that they are relatively financially secure.  He bought a house.

Joe Manganiello's House

Joe Manganiello's house in Los Angeles is 2,422 square feet and contains four bedrooms and three bathrooms.  The Hollywood Hills home has mid-century modern styling and features floor-to-ceiling windows, hardwood floors, multiple fireplaces, and exposed brick accents.  Joe Manganiello's house also sports a state-of-the-art kitchen with a Subzero refrigerator and a Bosch dishwasher, and walk-in closets.  Outside of Joe Manganiello's house there is a pool, outdoor BBQ, fire-pit, and lounge area.  The backyard can be accessed directly from the master bedroom and from the living room.  He purchased the home for a modest $1.806 million in April of 2013.  It's not a terrifically exorbitant price for a home in the Hollywood Hills, so he's clearly just "dipping his toe" in the celebrity real estate market.
