‘Criminal Minds’ Star Lists Charming Toluca Lake Home for $4.2M

When investigating real estate options, it’s good to look at a property from all angles. Besides the location, size, and amenities, it’s the details that give the full picture, something actor Joe Mantegna knows plenty about from playing an FBI profiler on the hit series Criminal Minds. It doesn’t take a detective to see that the celebrity’s Toluca Lake home is the epitome of charm, and now it is up for sale asking $4.195 million.

The 7,363-square-foot dwelling looks more like an English country manor than a glitzy Los Angeles home, but it has a little bit of both. Romantic elements like trey ceilings and diamond-paned glass windows enhance bright spaces that are ideal for entertaining.

Cozy yet glamorous, the home theater and game room with a pub-style bar is no doubt the best spot to gather for parties or relaxed nights in. It has jazzy, atmospheric lighting that will always give evenings a dash of sparkle. Of course, outside the family room’s French doors a beautiful patio is also idyllic with a grand fireplace. The backyard is fun-filled, boasting a lush lawn, pool and spa, and al fresco dining area.

With four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and one-half bath, this abode is a perfect size. Its location in the delightful Toluca Lake neighborhood provides some much-needed tranquility in the heart of LA, which may be why the Criminal Minds star and celebrities like Kirsten Dunst have had residences here.
