‘Black-ish’ creator Kenya Barris lands in Toluca Lake

Kenya Barris, the creator behind the shows “black-ish” and “#blackAF,” can’t get enough of the San Fernando Valley. He just shelled out $7.25 million for a Spanish-style spot in Toluca Lake, his fifth home in the area.

Records show he’s also owned properties in Valley Village, Encino and Studio City, where he paid $4.6 million for a Cape Cod-style residence last year.

His newest place emphasizes amenities with a gym, six-car garage and professional recording studio spread across 6,500 square feet. The house enjoys a waterfront spot on Toluca Lake and takes advantage with a private dock, as well as a swimming pool and spa surrounded by lush landscaping.

The exterior wears its Spanish style on it sleeve with clay tile, white stucco and an arched wood front door. Living spaces, however, are a different story; nearly devoid of color, they combine white walls and ceilings with dark, nearly black, hardwood floors.

The primary suite sits upstairs and takes in views of the water below. One of five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, it has a steam shower and opens to one of multiple decks overlooking the tropical backyard.

A native of Inglewood, Barris is best known for creating “black-ish,” the ABC sitcom that has run for seven seasons and received a slew of Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. In 2018, he signed a three-year deal with Netflix worth $100 million.

Carl Gambino of Compass held the listing. Shavonda Hill of RE/MAX One represented the buyer.
