Black-ish Creator Kenya Barris Purchases $4.6 Million Studio City Home

By on May 15, 2020 in ArticlesCelebrity Homes

Hot on the heels of the premiere of #BlackAF, his first project for Netflix, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris has a new home in the Studio City area of Los Angeles. The purchase is only the latest addition to what's quickly become a mini-real estate empire in Barris's name throughout LA, and he paid $4.6 million to add it to his holdings in the city.

The handsome Cape Cod style house was previously the property of songwriter Emanueal "Eman" Kiriakou, whose name might not be familiar, but who has worked in the past with artists like Selena Gomez and Celine Dion. He sold it to Barris for $4.6 million, a profit of some $400,000 compared to what he paid for the property about three years ago.

As for the house itself, it sits on a small .38-acre estate but spans across almost 6,300 square feet of interior living space, with room for a swimming pool and even a small pool house out back. There's also a basement that the home's official listing says "could be an amazing STUDIO!"
