‘Black-ish’ Star Deon Cole Upgrades to $5.7 Million Encino Estate (www.dirt.com)

As Deon Cole, best known for his portrayal of sketchy and hilariously maniacal Charlie Telphy on the hit sitcom “Black-ish” and its spin-off “Grown-ish,” has climbed the proverbial showbiz ladder, he’s steadily upgraded and upsized his residential circumstances in L.A.’s sprawling San Fernando Valley.

Some six months before he sold a not quite 3,800-square-foot home Woodland Hills, in late 2019 for $1.565 million, he splashed out $2.525 million for a slightly more than 5,800-square-foot home in the Coldwater Canyon area of Studio City that’s he’s recently hoisted back on the market with a seriously profitable price tag pushing up on $4.2 million. And now, the veteran standup comedian, writer and actor, a two-time Emmy nominee for his writing efforts on “The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien” and “Conan,” is really doing it up big with the $5.7 million purchase of a conspicuously lavish 7,500-square-foot mansion tucked away on a tiny cul-de-sac in one of the premiere neighborhoods of Encino. Long, gated driveway. Elevator. Wine Cellar. Tennis court. The whole shebang.
