In Hollywood, it pays big dollars to be funny.  Doubt me? Just look at what one of the funniest human beings on the planet —comedian, writer, and producer Marlon Wayans — recently purchased in Encino.

The stunning brand-new modern farmhouse was secured with the help of Carol Wolfe from Rodeo Realty represented the seller and Jo Anne McKenzie from Sotheby’s who represented the buyer.

Now, what does the word “luxury” mean to you because Wayan’s new digs have all of the features and amenities one could need or want. The house is a modern farmhouse and is located in a gated and private community.

Once you enter through the massive glass front door it opens to reveal an open floor plan and voluminous ceilings. The dramatic entry leads to a large room that has a floor-to-ceiling fireplace.

The kitchen is sleek and modern with no detail overlooked. The kitchen has a center island and a walk-in pantry and Thermador appliances, including an oversized 60” range, and refrigerator/freezer.

The spacious dining room is accented by wood-stained vaulted ceilings, and the opposite wall contains a built-in buffet with drawers which allows the host to serve guests in style from the adjacent stylish bar.

Naturally, there is a generously sized home theater nestled inside a multi-purpose media/game room that’s designed to provide maximum enjoyment.

The beautifully appointed powder room boasts a floating granite vanity with molded sink. There are five en-suite bedrooms including the sumptuous master suite which features a fireplace, stunning spa-like bathroom, and a massive and well-designed walk-in closet.

The master bathroom boasts an oversized shower with multiple shower heads and a free-standing tub. Sliding glass doors from the great room open fully to the grounds and create a seamless indoor-outdoor flow, with pool and spa, barbecue pavilion, cabana with half bathroom, and fire pit.

I will say it again; it pays well to be funny in Tinsletown. To keep the family fit and to shoot some hoops, there is a sports court and space to enjoy dining al fresco under the spacious covered loggia.
