Inside 'Inventing Anna' Creator Shonda Rhimes' Fabulous New York City Apartment

Shonda Rhimes is a producer, a screenwriter, and an author. She’s perhaps best known for creating and producing the long-running medical drama Grey’s Anatomy. However, Rhimes is also the executive producer of Bridgerton, and the creator of Private Practice, Scandal, and more recently the popular Netflix series Inventing Anna.

The showrunner has an impressive real estate portfolio as well from Los Angeles to New York. Here’s a look inside her posh Manhatten apartment and more on the LA estate she just sold for more than $20 million.

Rhimes recently sold her sprawling LA mansion

In July 2021, Rhimes put her seven-bedroom, 12-bathroom Hancock Park estate on the market for $25 million. She purchased the property from Everybody Love Raymond actor Patricia Heaton in 2014 for $8.8 million.

Rhimes listed the house with Ed Solórzano of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices California Properties and it sold in January 2022 for $21 million.

The three-level, 11,749-square-foot residence sits on 1.14 acres of land. Rhimes gave Architectural Digest a look inside that home in 2019 following a major renovation. When she first bought the house it wasn’t exactly her dream home and she thought the pea-green color on the exterior was all wrong so she worked with architect Bill Baldwin of HartmanBaldwin and designer Michael S. Smith on a complete remodel.

Today, Rhimes still owns two other homes in LA and a gorgeous apartment in the Big Apple.

If you thought some of the apartment had a Regency-era London feel about it, Rhimes explained that there’s a reason for that.

“I had been immersed in the romanticism of Bridgerton for a while, so that had to influence some of the things that I had been thinking about,” Rhimes acknowledges. “Everything sort of spills into everything else. If I’m thinking about these books that we’re turning into a series, then that inevitably spills into how the apartment’s going to look, which inevitably spills into what goes in the scripts–it all sort of spins together.”
