LA aaroe
Most of us can only bring memories of our favorite foreign places back with us in photos, videos and our mind’s eye. But what if you had enough vision, determination and resources to recreate the magic right here at home? Our remarkable client Jeri Ryan did just that — devoting years to a passionate quest to capture the exquisite beauty of France in the San Fernando Valley. Here’s a look at the magnificent result.

A page from Jeri Ryan’s love letter to France … in Encino

You know her as the silvery cyborg on Star Trek: Voyager … the leggy con from Leverage … the lethally blonde lawyer on Boston Legal. But her friends know Jeri Ryan better as a lifelong Francophile. In recent years she’s been wrapped up in a labor of love, meticulously transforming her Encino estate into a Loire Valley fantasy.
Now, her masterpiece is on the market, listed at $6,999,000 by Aaroe Estates Director Alan Taylor and President of Aaroe Estates, Aaron Kirman. The address may say 5255 Encino Avenue, but the spirit of this 1.44-acre residence lies spellbound in the French countryside. Jeri Ryan’s stunning recapturing was several years in the making, with $1 million devoted to the grounds alone. Imported elements include reclaimed terra cotta flooring, a 1755 stone fireplace, and a massive beamed ceiling. The pool house, based on a French design, is roofed in century-old reclaimed tile. Truly another place in time. more »
